Goatee Styles: The Chin Strip

Beard Grooming – The Chin Goatee

Are you wondering how to shave a goatee under the chin? Follow our step-by-step guide to getting the perfect chin goatee. But first things first, what is a chin only goatee? The goatee chin beard style is created when you leave a vertical line of hair in the centre of the chin. With the All Purpose Gillette STYLER, you can achieve this look.

The Goatee Chin Beard Look

There are countless facial hairstyles, but if you opt for the goatee look, you’ll be amazed to know there are plenty of different goatee styles to choose from. You can opt for the chin only goatee, the short chin goatee, the long chin goatee or even a chin strip and goatee style. The possibilities with the chin goatee style are endless. So, here’s a simple set of steps to get you on your way to the perfect chin strip goatee style for you:

Step 1: Select a Fixed-Length Comb for Trimming

The right comb length on your trimmer can help you style your chin goatee look. The All Purpose Gillette STYLER comes with three comb attachments (2mm, 4mm, 6mm) for you to choose from.

Step 2: Trim Your Facial Hair

Even out your beard hair length with the trimmer. Trimming hairs before shaving can help reduce tug and pull while shaving, and it can help prevent clogged blades.

Step 3: Define Your Chin Goatee Shape

What chin goatee styles are you going for? Once you’ve settled on a style, be it a thick chin strip with goatee or a short chin goatee you’re ready to shave.

Remove your trimmer’s comb attachment and trim your beard to define the chin strip goatee shape. For the best style results, keep the hair shorter on your neck and cheeks.

Step 4: Check for Symmetry as You Go

But be careful not to trim too much off in an effort to look even.

Step 5: Prep Your Face

Rinse your face with warm water to help hydrate your hair in preparation for shaving. Then, lather up the parts of your face that you want to shave completely bare—the non-chin strip parts—with a shave gel. Using a shave gel can help prevent nicks, cuts, and irritation.

Step 6: Shave with Light, Gentle Strokes

Attach the razor blade attachment onto your Gillette STYLER handle and shave with light, gentle strokes, to give yourself a close shave. AnyFusion5™ blade refill fits with STYLER.

Step 7: Rinse Your Blades Often

Rinsing the blades often throughout your shave helps to prevent the build-up of hairs and shaving cream on the blade edges and cartridge; this helps keep your razor performing at its best.

Step 8: Edge with the Precision Trimmer

Wondering how to shape a goatee under the chin? On the back of all Fusion5 razors is a precision blade; use this to help define the chin strip shape and achieve clean edges.

Step 9: Rinse, Towel, and Moisturise

Rinse off your face with cool water. Towel off, and then apply a hydrating aftershave lotion or balm to help soothe your skin.

You have just mastered the chin strip goatee style!

With Gillette razors and trimmers, your personal grooming possibilities are endless.
