The Ducktail style of beard is another twist off the original full beard and gets its name from its appearance.
By looking at it you can easily see how much the bottom part of this style of beard resembles the tail of a duck.
Many beardsmen consider the Ducktail a perfect compromise between the wild characteristic of having a beard and well-groomed sophistication. It’s possibly for this reason the Ducktail continues to be one of the most popular styles of beard today.
To create it the upper part of the beard is trimmed shorter while the hair on the chin area is allowed to grow as long as the man wants it to grow, providing that perfect blend of styled and rugged.
