Do grey beards look good?

Guys with grey hair are often seen as wise and experienced, but some guys don't want to look like their grandfather when they grow a beard. So what do grey beards look like?

The grey beard is for the wizard 

You don't have to be a senior citizen to grow a grey beard. A lot of people don't start going grey until their 50s, which means a lot of guys who embrace their grey goatees when they're in their 30s or 40s.

A grey beard is often seen as an indication that the wearer is mature and sophisticated—and many men like that association with themselves. This may be why so many older men choose to keep their facial hair rather than shaving it off once they start greying: they see it as a signifier of maturity and wisdom, and they want others to see them in this light too.

The main thing you need to remember when deciding whether or not your goatee will look good with your newly-greyed chin hairs is this: if you treat yourself well and take care of yourself (like eating healthy foods), then chances are good that your goatee will look great!

You won't see many 20-year-olds with grey beards.

It's true that you won't see many 20-year-olds with grey beards. And given that the average age a guy starts to go grey is 30, it's fair to assume that most men who have a full beard will be at least in their thirties. But age isn't everything when it comes to grey hair: just as some teenagers might develop dark or white facial hair, others may start going grey at an early age.

If you're under 35 and see yourself sporting a few greys in your beard this year (and maybe the next), don't worry too much about people thinking you didn't take care of yourself well enough—that can happen for anyone regardless of how old they are! Just remember that if your beard does begin growing in with flecks of white during these years, it's probably best not to dye them away since they're just temporary changes from hormones (people generally stop producing melanin after puberty). If all else fails, try growing out your facial hair so no one notices those few stray hairs anyway!

The most important thing about your beard depends on what you're looking for.

In conclusion, if you want to look more mature, then a grey beard will work for you. However, if you're looking to look younger or more distinguished, then it may not be the best choice.


Grey hairs in the beard are often more noticeable than grey hairs in your head.

But if you’re going to grow it out, you might as well do it in style. Here are some tips for making the most of grey hair in your beard:

  • Be prepared for people to notice. Grey hairs are more noticeable than those on your head, so expect them to be the first thing people will try to point out when they meet you!

  • Wear a hat if you need more privacy (or just don’t care) about having a full head of grey hair. It can be frustrating when strangers feel the need to ask questions or comment on something that isn't really any of their business. If this happens often enough, it could begin to make you self-conscious about showing off your new look without much warning at all!

  • Consider dying/colouring your beard once every few months instead of letting nature take its course; this way there won't be any noticeable difference between what's growing naturally and what isn't yet showing signs of aging—which makes sense because none would have been there yet!

Grey beards will look different 

It is a good idea to experiment with different shades of grey, but be patient. Finding the right shade for you can take up to six months or longer. A lot of people are not used to seeing their beard in this colour, so it will take some time before you feel comfortable with it. Gently remind yourself that you look great!

Adding white to your full beard might not be the best answer.

If you have patchy facial hair, then adding white to your full beard might not be the best answer. If this is the case, you should try other options instead of going for a grey beard.

If you are still looking to add some pigment to your facial hair and want something that will look good with all different types of beards, there are still plenty of options available. Try using a beard dye or even just wielding some coloured pencils if you know how to use them well.

How good you look depends on how it fits your overall look and style.

As with anything else, how good you look depends on how it fits your overall look and style. If you are young and looking for a clean-shaven look, then grey might not be the best choice for you. On the other hand, if you're older and have been growing out your beard for years, or if shaving is just not an option for some reason (such as medical reasons or religious restrictions), then adding white to your full beard could give it more depth and character while still keeping it well-groomed.

If there are patches of facial hair that aren't quite long enough to be considered full beards yet but are definitely longer than stubble—or even if you don't have much facial hair at all—then adding white may not be the best idea for those areas since they'll stand out too much from their surrounding darker hairs.


All in all, grey beards are a personal decision. If you like the look and it works with your lifestyle then have at it! Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
