As you may have already guessed, the Anchor style of beard gets its name from the nautical anchor and the overall shape should resemble one.
To get the Anchor right, a beardman’s face must be free of sideburns, but have a beard that extends along the jawline and is then styled to a point.
This point should be connected to a pencil mustache so that the overall shape is anchor-like. A word of caution regarding this style: it can be tricky to get right as it’s a combination of many styles, namely the Chinstrap, the Goatee and the Handlebar.
The Anchor style suits beardsmen with square or oblong shaped faces the best, so it’s not a beard style that anyone can just pull off.
