Admit it: As a man, you may not put too much thought into the type of beard you're sporting. In fact, you may not put in any thought at all about it.

Going Full Circle

Circle beards -- a mustache that grows around the sides of the chin to meet the beard -- can come in many sizes, but they're all about the shape. If you want a thicker and more natural look, follow Joe Manganiello's example. If you prefer to look a little more clean-shaven, opt for a thinner, pencil-like mustache.

What Time is It?

It's 5 o'clock somewhere -- like on your face when you're sporting this shadowy look. Although many men try their hardest not to let their stubble show every day, this scruffy look has become a favorite for celebrities like Armie Hammer. Added bonus: The ladies dig it.

A Hot Mess

Sometimes messy facial hair is a "do," if done right. If you want to give off a laid-back, too-cool-to-care facial hair vibe, the messy beard (as seen on Matt Bomer) is the way to go. It lets you keeps things casual and sexy, while still looking completely office-appropriate.

Get the Goatee

Your goatee may not get as much publicity as Channing Tatum's, but it will definitely turn some ladies' heads. Keep it short for everyday occasions, and try pairing it with a thin, clean-cut mustache for a more refined look.

Got Soul?

You may not want to be as "soul-full" as Olympic medal winner Apolo Anton Ohno, but that doesn't mean this look isn't right for you. Draw some extra attention to your chin with a soul patch, the more daring version of the goatee.

Keep it Light

If you want to rock a full beard but aren't willing to take the time to grow it out, a lighter beard like Bradley Cooper's is the perfect alternative. Let your beard grow for a few days -- just long enough for the hair to be soft, but not long enough to become thick and bushy.

Keeping Up Traditions

Keeping Up Traditions

Sometimes it pays off to be traditional, like when you want to rock this time-honored beard seen here on Jake Gyllenhaal. To get the look, let your hair grow to a medium length. Keep it clean by sprucing up the "lines" (the area below the bottom lip with no hair) every day.

A Full Dose

A Full Dose

Sometimes you've just got to go all out. And if you've got the guts, why not grow out a full beard, like Zach Galifianakis? This macho style looks best when it covers the entire bottom portion of your face, so don't leave room for lines.
