Ben Affleck’s Sharp Fashion Style
Affleck was not named the Most Stylish Bruce Wayne for nothing. His style preferences have not changed drastically over the years.
Although Affleck has made a few fashion mistakes in the past, like the mafia shirts in the late 90’s, he manages to look stylish and sharp by picking clothes pieces that fit well and accentuate his looks.
Aside from looking sharp in a tux, off the set, this star knows how to keep things stylish but comfy in a good pair of jeans and a basic T-shirt, especially when paired with Louboutin sneakers or any other high-end brand of footwear.
Ben also likes wearing masculine jackets. Whether he is wearing a leather jacket or a more current D&G bomber jacket Ben clearly shows that he digs quality and luxury when it comes to apparel.
How to Get Ben Affleck’s Beard
Ben Affleck sported a beard in some Batman scenes in Justice League. Neat with a dignified amount of gray, this full and slightly pointed medium beard is easy to achieve even if you’re not a superhero.
Before you start growing a beard, it is important to find out if full and long beard styles suit your face.
Ben Affleck has that hunky face with a strong jaw and a well-defined chin, which means that he can pull off any length of beard and still look good.
If your face shape is on the round side, a long facial hair can elongate your face in a more flattering way. If your face is squarish long beard will have the same effect.
However, if you already have an oval face shape, to begin with, keep the length to a minimum and grow the sides of your beard fuller to create symmetry.
You may need a couple of weeks to get a thicker beard with this length. To ensure normal and healthy growth, add more protein-rich foods in your diet to speed up your beard growth.
You may want to grow your beard a bit longer so that you can easily trim it back until you get the perfect length and density.
Shaping and Trimming Tips
Affleck trims his beard in a way that creates a well defined V letter. You can do this too, by using beard scissors first and then refining the shape with clippers of the right guard size.
Use clippers with a low guard to get an even cut. Affleck keeps his beard at about half an inch to an inch in length, which is at about number 5 or 4 guard setting.
Switch to smaller guard settings when fading out the areas near the cheeks, under the neckline, around the jawline and chin.
Ben Affleck likes to keep his beard neckline scruffy, so you want to keep the hairs in this area short.
Remove the guard and go over the periphery of your beard again to clean these areas and define the lines. Next, use clippers to trim your mustache and create a clean lip line.
Apply natural beard oil or balm to keep your beard soft and give it a polished look.
Beard butter is a luxurious, creamier version of a beard balm that contains nourishing ingredients like lanolin and beeswax.
It’s perfect if you prefer organic and chemical-free grooming products.
Keep your beard clean with beard shampoo infused with natural oils to stop a beard itch. Do these on a regular basis to enjoy a full and flattering beard that would make Batman proud.
