The whiskers are among the secondary male sex characteristics. It is an indication of high levels of testosterone (the hormone responsible for physical strength and increased libido in men) in the organism. From an evolutionary point of view, body hair played an important role in human life. According to cultural anthropologists, the beard was always a sign of male dominance. The facial hair served as a warning and to frighten the enemies. With a big beard the men looked much stronger and even terrible for the enemies in primitive times. The ample body and facial hair was a sign that a man was capable of protecting a woman. So it is also in the world of animals, e.g. among the lions with their impressive mane and the great apes, whose whole body is covered with hair. With their rich hair, they look even bigger and stronger than they are.

Beard: terrible or attractive?

In many cultures the beard served as a sign of wisdom and power, it was still a mark of distinction for priests and kings. Even the pharaohs of Ancient Egypt were distinguished by their subjects not only because of their clothes, but also because of the blue beard they wore. Undisputed is the fact that men with more facial hair appear even today more attractive to most women. From the evolutionary point of view, our affections do not seem to have changed much. It is deeply rooted in the female subconscious to recognize the hallmarks of masculinity and to search for them. What used to be considered appealing has some validity even today.

The beard is definitely attractive

In order to achieve the perfectly groomed Hollywoodian look, it is necessary that you grow your beard for 3-4 weeks. Next comes the styling. For a Hollywood beard you should start with the hair in the upper part of the cheeks. Shave that part of your face by forming a line that stretches from the bottom of your ear to your chin. Very important for the Hollywoodian is that the sideburns in the beard do not go. Trim the hair in the upper part of your neck so that you define the contours of the jaw line. Depending on how tight your underside grows, you may also want to style it to define the two small spaces under your lower lip. Now you are done!

Famous Hollywood actors who like to wear the Hollywoodian are Christian Bale, Leonardo DiCaprio, Hugh Jackman, Viggo Mortensen and others.

To shape the contours:

The Ducktail is a beard style in which the hair on the sides are neatly shaped and slightly tipped on the chin. The density of the beard is a special factor if you want to have a really magnificent duck tail. This beard shape is more suitable for men with thick facial hair. If you have a light beard growth, it might be better if you opt for another full beard shape. Otherwise, you risk that your duck tail looks not so impressive, but rather unkempt look.
