With winter just around the corner, a lot of guys start thinking about growing their beard out, but don’t know where to start!

To get the best look, so much depends on your face shape so the guys over at River Island have put together the perfect visual guide to help lads with what will suit them best.

Not only this but they have put together their very own guides for shaving and beard maintenance, shaving and trimming guide and general face care.

As you can see by the cover photo – I have a typical oval face, which thankfully works well with for all beard types and the short side-parting I currently have at the moment.

So, why not take a look at the guide below and let me know in the comments which kind of face shape you have and whether you agree with what suits you best?
