You'll need a barber to consult you through the growing out process and to help keep your beard groomed. 02 of 12 And With Full Beard and Medium Length Haircut And With Full Beard and Medium Length Haircut.

The beard is full, while the hair is cut in medium layers which gives some great styling versatility. 03 of 12 Man with a Full Beard Wearing a Suit Man with a full beard in a suit.

Photo © SeanShot | Getty Images I think, evening in more conservative environments, men can pull off a trendy look at work if they have the right clothes and attitude. This guy's doing it right by balancing his full beard (and ear gauges) with a smart suit. 04 of 12 Man with a Full Beard and Short Hair Man with a full beard and short hair.

This guy's beard is full, but still well groomed. The hair is cut short and neat and provides a nice contrast to the beard. 05 of 12 Man with a Full Beard Man with a full, hipster beard.

I would like to see the beard tamed a bit with a good beard oil. 06 of 12 Man with Epic Red Beard Man with epic red beard. Photo © Susan Chiang | Getty Images.

Except for the shorter haircut guy looks like he may have spent the past year living off the land in some remote part of the country. 07 of 12 Man in Full Hipster Mode Photo © NPHOTOS | Getty Images If you were to look up the term hipster in the dictionary, you'd probably see this guy's face. He's got it all. The long beard and mustache with curled edges, smart suit, glasses, and even the Irish Tweed Hat. 08 of 12 Man with Full Beard and Skin Fade Man with full beard and skin fade haircut.

The guy's wearing a full (but not too full) beard combined with a crisp, tight variation on the pompadour. The look is still long enough to be on trend and versatile, but short enough to be appropriate in most situations. 09 of 12 Man with Medium Beard and Glasses Man with hipster beard and glasses.

Photo © Peopleimages | Getty Images This is another variation of the hipster look, but the beard is shorter and the hair is more conservative, but a pair of chunky glasses bring in the hipster element. I would like to see this beard trimmed a little cleaner, but it's a pretty good look on him. 10 of 12 Good Looking Man with Full Beard Man with full beard. Photo © pinky pills/Fuse | Getty Images.

A very nice example of a well done hipster look. 11 of 12 Man with Full Beard and Undercut Haircut Man with full beard and undercut hairstyle.

The good thing about this look is that it is something many men can achieve on a budget as it is fairly easy to give yourself an undercut at home. 12 of 12 Man with Epic Hipster Beard Man with epic hipster beard. Photo © RoBeDeRo | Getty Images. Photo © RoBeDeRo | Getty Images For many men wanting to achieve that hipster look, this is the look to go after. The hair is a clean, classic taper, while the beard is full and groomed, but not too groomed. Unlike many of the short hair/big beard trends, this look is groomed, but not overly fussy. This is one of the best examples of the hipster look I've seen.
