Let’s get started!
Who Is Conor McGregor?
Before we discuss Conor McGregor beard, we want to tell you some brief information about his life, his career, and his achievements.
Don’t worry. It will be very short!

How To Get Conor McGregor Beard Style
Except for his incredible training what makes Conor so masculine is his appearance and his epic beard.
He has a relatively long and thick full beard but he trims his neckline. He probably trims his cheeks high as well to make his lines sharper. But, in general, he just grows a full beard similar to Garibaldi.
The Garibaldi beard was named after Guiseppe Maria Garibaldi, an Italian General, patriot and republician.
It is known to be a beard style that doesn’t need much maintenance and trimming which is partly correct but it doesn’t mean that it doesn’t require any attention. Conor keeps his beard at a reasonable length no more than 20cm or 7-8 inches.
As far as the neckline is concerned, it is wide and rounded. If you wanna copy McGregor’s beard style don’t let your neck hair connect to your chest hair.
Moving on to his beard’s color. Conor has brown-ginger facial hair.
This is very common for people that have both a gene for brown and a gene for red hair. Brown is the dominant color but red hairs exist. His beard color is actually a mix of brown, blonde, and orange hair.
If you want to have the same color I would advise you to just grab a light brown beard dye. The red hair is not very visible.
Step By Step How To Grow Conor McGregor Beard
- Let your facial hair grow for at least 1-2 months without any trimming.
- Take care of your under beard skin with high-quality beard oil.
- When your beard has grown adequately, shape your neckline.
- Then, if you want, trim your cheek hair (only high just to create sharper cheek lines)
Remember, not everyone is capable of growing a beard like Conor. He has a very nice and thick beard that helps him create this awesome look.
If you can’t grow hair on your cheeks or generally you have a thin or patchy beard then it will be difficult or impossible for you to copy his beard style. More on this later on.
Growing a relatively long beard is very challenging compared to growing stubble. Hairs might curl back, you may have to deal with skin irritation, dandruff, facial hair sticking out, split ends, and goes on. Please try to take care of your beard daily by washing and brushing it and by applying beard oil.
This beard style is very easy to accomplish. The only thing you should worry is the neckline. However, as we have already discussed many of you won’t be lucky enough to have thick facial hair.
So, can you do anything to stimulate beard growth?
How To Grow A Thicker Beard
I don’t care what others say, I will be honest with you as always.
The most important factor when it comes to beard thickness is genetics. It is like 85-90%. So, Tasos, does that mean that everything is lost and we can’t grow a thicker beard?
No. There are many things you can do to grow a thicker beard. We have created a whole article about this but I will also outline the best tips and ways to get a fuller beard now.
- Improve your diet
- Take care of your beard and your skin
- Take Vitamin Supplements
- Start Minoxidil Therapy (Always you should ask our doctor first)
- Hormone Therapy (only if you have low testosterone, obviously you MUST ask your doctor)
- Beard Implant
As you can see, there are quite a lot of things you can do. The key idea with dieting and supplementation is to give ourselves the best foods necessary for facial hair to grow.
If let’s say we don’t eat well, maybe we are poor and we don’t have enough water and food, our body won’t work properly and as a result our beards won’t be healthy and strong.
Another very important thing to remember is that testosterone which is the male’s main hormone is responsible (up to a certain degree) for beard growth. Therefore, men do have more hair than women.
Exercise and specifically weight training along with a healthy diet increase the levels of testosterone naturally.
Moving on, Minoxidil is used both by bald men but also by men that want to grow thicker beards. Minoxidil needs time to work and its results aren’t permanent and fall if you stop using it.
However, there aren’t many better solutions than Minoxidil. You can take a look here.
Micro-needling may also help you improve facial hair growth by boosting the amount of blood in a specific area.
Hormone therapy is only possible if you have low testosterone pathologically. Then, the doctor will prescribe you the suitable treatment. Do NOT try anything yourself.
The final solution is the most efficient one but not everyone is willing to do it. A beard transplant, if successful, can be a permanent solution.
Also rememver that after all it is just hair. You, gentlemen should accept yourselves as you are. You are awesome!
How To Maintain A Conor McGregor Beard Style
Maintaining a beard like Conor McGregor is not very difficult but it definitely requires a few things to be done daily.
As I have already told you, growing a long beard is very tricky. It is not as easy as being clean-shaven or as growing a stubble beard.
To maintain your Conor McGregor style you should:
- Trim your neckline often (1-2 times a week)
- Wash your beard at least every 2 days.
- Apply high-quality beard oil daily
- Comb your beard daily (It removes dead hair, gives your facial hair the correct direction, and distributes natural oils)
- Once every month (highly depends on your preferences) you should trim your beard’s length very little. (Preventing split ends and not allowing it to grow too much)

And that’s about it guys! It is that simple. I don’t want you to overcomplicate things. You don’t need beard dyes, you don’t need beard straighteners, waxes or anything else.
Of course, if you want, you can use them but I am not here to promote stuff. I am here to explain the process as simply as possible.
To Sum Up
Conor McGregor’s beard is a Garibaldi beard. It is a full long and thick beard. You should just create your neckline and you are fine.
