Best Interview Looks For Men With Beards

Beard and Tie Pairings

We live in a different time than our forefathers did. Going “el casual” is more common now than ever before, even in the workplace. However, there is one work setting where looking your best is still a good call. The interview.

The professional man still needs to be able to bring his “A” game when it’s time to interview. This means a smart suit, solid colored, minimal jewelry and accessories (a metal watch is fine), and of course, a tie. The modern bearded man may struggle to find the piece of neckwear that suits his facial hair and complements his features. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.

Regardless of hair color or style, your beard should be neat and well-kempt for your interview. It is also important to remember that the size of your beard and mustache will accentuate the size of your face, making it more pronounced. With that in mind, we want to complement our beard. Not fight for dominance of our face. Your beard style and color will factor in to selecting what colors and tie styles work best for you.



Those with lighter-colored hair will want to stick with darker colors. This complements the shade of your hair without being too drastic. Lighter colors such as yellows and pinks run the risk of blending in and being lost against your hair.

Small Beard: The Micro Check Tie in Dark Midnight Blue is an excellent darker colored necktie to pair with a light beard color. It also wears well with a neater, more closely trimmed beard

Large Beard: Larger beards should still be well-groomed, waxed or oiled, and looking professional. Bow ties pair well with larger beard styles as they keep the attention on the face. The beard combined with the bow tie can convey an intellectual, academic image. Bow ties, in general, work best with a tightly fitted jacket.

The Silk Designer Bow Tie in Navy and Red is an elegant, lightly patterned bowtie which will pair well with a lighter hair shade. It also will pair nicely with the matching pocket square



If lighter colored hair matches well with darker colors, then the opposite is true for darker hair. Brunette hair that wanders into the darker shades of brown pairs better with a lighter colored tie.

Small Beard: A light blue such as the Trendy Blue Gingham Check Tie is a smart choice. The pattern is professional and light blue is an excellent complement to a number of different suit styles and colors. Light blue ties with simple patterns are typically a solid choice for a job interview.

Large Beard: Your larger beard will pair well with another light blue selection. The Diamond Check Bowtie in Blue is a playful, yet elegant selection that will complement a larger beard style. The bold diamond pattern is distinctive without being distracting.



Regardless of your suit style and color, dark navy blue will almost always work in a professional setting. The Elegant Navy Blue Business Tie is a smart choice to convey a professional, yet bold appearance.

For summer interviews, a lighter color is traditionally a smart approach.

While navy blue is still a fantastic choice, A simple blue and yellow striped tie also works well and adds a hint of charm and casual sophistication.



Your goal should be to look your best and present a clean, neat, and professional appearance to the interviewer. The specific position you are interviewing for, or the company, may help dictate your selection.

Pro Tip: Research the company prior to the interview. Most companies have a brand color they utilize on their website, logo, or in marketing materials. Match to the style and shade if possible. 

While looking your best is important, it is likewise important to remember to not be too flashy. The expectation in most interview setting is that the attire is business professional which can mean a somewhat toned down appearance.

Now, go get that job!
