Heavy stubble is one of the easiest facial hair styles for men that does not involve growing a full beard. A heavy stubble beard is easy to grow because it only takes about 9 or 10 days of not shaving to achieve this look. One reason for men to have this style is because it is means you don’t have to worry about shaving which can be a chore for some guys. Another great reason is that women love the look of a scruffy man because it makes them look more rugged and handsome.

While you may think that the unshaved look might make you look lazy, if you trim it down and shape it, you facial hair can look nicer than a thick beard in some cases. This look is much easier to maintain and manage, and it will work in any setting, as long as you take care of it. There should be no problem for most professional men to have a stubble beard, as this beard style has become normal and trendy.

This style has been around a long time, but it became popular in the 90’s. There are many ways you can style your facial hair with this look. You don’t have to keep it all the same length all over you face. You can make your mustache full, with the rest of your beard as stubble.

This is a great option for a guy who does not want to or cannot grow a full beard. You can still get the handsome and rugged style, but you do not have to worry about shaving as much, and it is easier to maintain.

Remember, you are not going for the I’m on vacation, and I don’t care what I look like. You are still going to dress nice and professional, and you are going to have to groom your facial hair several times a week.

How To Trim Your Beard For The Heavy Stubble Look

  • The first step to get stubble is to let your facial hair grow out for 10-14 days. It is a good idea to grow it out just a few days longer than needed. This way you can trim it down and shape it.
  • If you don’t have a beard trimmer you will need to get one. There is no way that you can maintain a stubble look on your face without keeping it groomed. Our first choice is this Philips Norelco from Amazon, or if you prefer a budget option, this Wahl will also work. Either way, you will need a stubble trimmer that has different size guards on it.
  • Use your beard trimmer with no guard on it to edge your cheeks, sideburns, and neck areas. Most beards grow a little uneven in places, and this will make it look nicer.

Some Different Beard Stubble Styles To Consider

  • Full heavy stubble everywhere: Your facial hair is the same length all over your face
  • Thick mustache with stubble: Full mustache surrounded by shorter facial hair
  • Clean neck: All facial hair shaved off of neck
  • Goatee with heavy stubble: Full goatee with shorter facial hair surrounding it

If you want to grow a heavy stubble beard style, here are some pictures that can provide some examples of thick scruff for facial hair. You may need to use a beard trimmer to edge and make tight lines depending on which look you prefer.

As you can see, there are many ways that you can style your beard with this look. You should take advantage of how your facial hair grows, and you should use that to your advantage. If you have a patchy beard on your cheeks, but you can grow an incredible ‘stache, then you can keep your mustache and trim down your cheeks. This allows you to have a great look while not being clean shaven.
