Q: I'm starting a fashion brand and want to use the name BEAU in a bold font. Will I be able to trademark this later?

I'm concerned with using the name BEAU for my brand if I won't be able to trademark it later. I've searched the trademark database and see similar marks, but I don't know if the ones currently trademarked will prevent me from acquiring mine.

Your question has a lot of variables that could impact the answer. I would suggest consulting directly with a trademark lawyer. The term may be too broad to afford it protection - registering it is one thing, defending the trademark is another entirely.
