The “Anchor,” the “Fu Manchu,” and the “Soul Patch” are just some of the many facial hair styles worn by today’s men. One man, Jon Dyer, engaged on a quest to try every type of facial hair type and he shares his experiences with his readers at dyers.org.
Here is a small sampling of the many types of facial hair styles that are available for men and can be created using the Micro Touch Max.
