The Anchor Beard

As you may have already guessed, the Anchor style of beard gets its name from the nautical anchor and the overall shape should resemble one. To get the Anchor right, a beardman’s face must be free of sideburns, but have a beard that extends along the jawline and is then styled to a point. This point should be connected to a pencil mustache so that the overall shape is anchor-like. A word of caution regarding this style: it can be tricky to get right as it’s a combination of many styles, namely the Chinstrap, the Goatee and the Handlebar. The Anchor style suits beardsmen with square or oblong shaped faces the best, so it’s not a beard style that anyone can just pull off.
