millions of men across the country, the end of summer is bittersweet.
It means that we can no longer spend all day outdoors with our best
buds, enjoying beer after beer while savoring the warm weather. But
it also means that our favorite pastime is about to dominate our
weekends once again. That’s right – we’re talking about
you prepare to watch the 2019 NFL season, we want you to pay close
attention to something. We’re not talking about the game itself,
but the exquisite beards that top NFL players are rocking these days.
We’re pretty blown away by the incredible facial hair that we’re
seeing on our favorite players this season, and we’re pretty sure
that you will be too.
you’re in need of some inspiration in the facial hair department,
this list is for you. We’ve listed the top five beards
in the NFL. All of these beards are unique and fabulous in their own
ways, and we’re certain that you’ll feel inspired by all of them.
Jason Kelce (Philadelphia Eagles, C)
Kelce has enjoyed several seasons as a top NFL player, and he’s
definitely a big key to the Eagles’ success. Kelce’s beard is
perhaps just as impressive as his football career, and it seems to
have gotten longer and more luxurious as time has gone on. His beard
also looks extremely healthy, which makes us think that he devotes a
good amount of time and attention to maintaining that glorious facial
hair of his.
you want a beautiful, robust beard like Kelce’s? Luckily for you,
it’s really not that hard to pull off. What’s most important is
that you’re willing to allow it to grow. His beard is pretty thick
and long, so you’ll need some patience. While it’s growing, make
sure that you hydrate it regularly with a nourishing beard oil, and
trim those ends from time to time.
Mark Ingram (Baltimore Ravens, RB)
fabulous beard in the NFL belongs to Mark Ingram superstar. His beard
is unique in that it’s not incredibly full – in fact, it’s a
little patchy – but he makes it work, and he maintains that
effortless bearded look extremely well.
is yet another beard that’s extremely easy to achieve. Once again,
it’s mostly a matter of having patience while it grows in. The
good thing about this beard is that it can work even if your hair is
extremely fine. Just make sure that you trim it as needed so that it
keeps its shape. This isn’t about having a perfectly tidy and neat
beard, so you don’t have to go crazy with the styling products.
However, proper hydration is a must if you want your facial hair to
Odell Beckham Jr. (Cleveland Browns, WR)
doesn’t love OBJ? His enthralling personality has turned him into
a superstar both on and off the field. What helps add to his
distinctive persona is his impeccable style, both in terms of how he
dresses and how he styles his hair and beard. Beckham’s platinum
locks have certainly earned him a lot of attention, but what we’re
most impressed by is that glorious beard that he rocks so
thing that makes Odell’s beard so unique is the fact that it’s
extremely full on the bottom. While most men keep everything very
short on that neckline, he allows the fullness to be concentrated in
that area. It lengthens his face, which works for his face shape.
If you want to try this look, let the beard grow a little beyond the
neckline and keep things nice and full. Then, keep things evenly and
neatly shaped on the face.
Ryan Fitzpatrick (Miami Dolphins, QB)
Fitzpatrick is a fixture of the Dolphins, and we love his lumberjack
aesthetic that translates both on and off the field. His beard is
extremely long compared to his fellow teammates, and it definitely
fits his persona and complements his overall vibe. His beard has
gotten longer over the years, and he balances this look out with very
shortly trimmed hair.
you want to grow a long lumberjack-style beard like Fitzpatrick,
allow it to grow for several months. Yes, it really will take that
long. During the growing stage, keep your facial hair healthy with a
daily application of beard oil. And, every few weeks, trim away the
split ends so that the hair continues to look smooth and neat.
Otherwise, it can look frazzled and damaged, which is never a good
look, whether you’re a football hero or an average joe.
Eric Weddle (Los Angeles Rams, Safety)
the most unique beard we’ve seen in the NFL belongs to Rams player
Eric Weddle. His beard works perfectly for his facial hair type,
which is coarse and thick. Despite the fact that his beard isn’t
super long, it looks incredibly full because of that natural
thickness. So, basically, this is a great style for anyone who has
naturally coarse and thick facial hair.
thing that’s worth pointing out is that Weddle’s beard is
extremely well-groomed. He clearly shapes and trims it regularly and
makes sure that his hair is just as tidy. So, if you want to go for
this style, be prepared to devote a solid amount of time to
maintaining it regularly.
any man who has coarse and thick beard hair needs to put extra effort
into keeping things moisturized. Use a beard oil at least once each
day to keep those strands smooth rather than frizzy.
Opening Bearded Kickoff
that football season is about to begin, we’re all getting excited
