Do you think your face looks thinner with or without facial hair? or only with certain styles?

 

I've been letting my mustache and soul patch grow out a bit, but I honestly think it makes my face look chubby and gross. My chin, cheeks, and neckline are extremely patchy with like a few random stray hairs. I can't even get a full circle beard around my mouth because I just don't have follicles in some areas.

 

I'm convinced my face only looks skinny when it's clean shaven. Otherwise, it almost looks like my cheeks are huge and very round/chubby? Wonder if it's a style thing or a "me" thing with body dysmorphia


Just let me relapse without judgement

There many diff beard type of cuts/ styles that can give ur face an illusion of looking thinner though... but if u dont have a full beard to begin with, yeah keep it clean since its more hygienic anyways

i get a stache and then a line around my jaw that kind of acts like natural shading, especially around sides of the face. i would say it might be the style for you, since the hair on the jawline is usually what helps give the more slimming look. don't know if the soul patch and mustache would actually make you look rounder though, that might just be the dysmorphia.

Some stubble up to your cheek bones can help thin your face, alternatively a narrow beard can elongate you and make your face look thinner.

depends how long the facial hair is. my face used to look kinda bony when i had little to no facial hair. then i tried to recover, gained fuckloads of weight, stopped shaving altogether and once i decided to shave, i was shocked how rounded and shapeless my face had become. when i was skinny and i had lots of facial hair, i don't think you could've told by my face that i was that skinny.

I honestly hate facial hair. It's feels uncomfortable and doesn't look good (to me personally). I'm planning to get mine laser-removed soon. It's like the bane of my existence.

Why not both? You can alternate depending on your mood

My face looks so round when clean shaven so I've been growing out sideburns and a little bit of chin scruff. At the very least it slightly obscures my face shape.

Have you tried growing a van dyke? It's broadly known as goatee but with more emphasis on bringing the chin area to a point. Think of Johnny Depp who has sort of a roundish face but when he's sporting a van dyke it looks thinner, I think. That plus sideburns might help the illusion lol

I think I might have done something similar (without any kind of mustache, my facial hair is still a wip) like a year or so ago but I had way longer hair then so I don't know if I could pull it off now.

dude long hair is the key. Again with the johnny depp example, long hair makes his face look so much thinner.

I lost a lot of hair due to bulimia so I feel your pain about not being able to pull it off :/

I want to grow it out but I keep cutting it when Im stressed. My ideal is having long hair and facial hair, and at least I'm lucky I've neve had issues with hairloss.
