What better way to take 2019 by the scruff of the neck then with facial hair that will complete your look.
VSforMen have teamed up with lads styling expert Jules Tognini to guide you through how you can utilise our great range of trimming tools to achieve a fresh take on your face.
He predicts the best facial hair trends this year are the goatee, the shorter long beard and the slacker shadow!
The ’90s are back and the goatee is leading the charge. In research carried out by VSforMen, 69% of Australians voted the goatee as the grooming trend that they would most like to see make a comeback* (though the humble mullet was an honourable mention).
This style is great for any face shape and the goatee is one of the more manageable moustaches to maintain.
Here’s how to trim your goatee and maintain it:
Pro Tip: Apply beard oil and moustache wax to keep your goatee looking sharp!

For lads with good beard coverage that want to keep things slick rather than bushy like a bushranger, they’ll be happy to hear a more controlled beard is back in fashion.
With sharp lines along the cheeks to bring out the jawline and more length through the chin for a fuller look, you can have the benefits of facial hair without your face shape being lost under a tone of fur.
To achieve this look, you will need around 1 to 2 months of facial hair growth. Now follow these simple steps:
Start with a dry skin and beard.
Pro Tip: Repeat this process every few days depending on how clean cut you are looking to be

So lads pick up your groomer and let’s get this 3 O’clock shadow underway.
