The Goatee Beard
There’s more than one way to wear a goatee, however. First, you need to consider the style you’re going for. To find out how to trim a goatee and maintain it with the right tools like the All Purpose Gillette STYLER, read on.
Step 1: How to Grow a Goatee
Neat and short, long and messy, or one that emphasises a handlebar moustache: there’s certainly more than one way to wear a goatee. Choosing the style for you in part comes down to knowing your face shape, but mostly, it’s simply a case of personal preference. Pick what style feels right for you, and make sure your beard has at least a week’s growth before you start.
Step 2: Choose a Trimmer
Depending on the type of circle beard you’ve chosen, you need to select the right trimmer to create the look. The All Purpose Gillette STYLER comes with three comb attachments, 6mm, 4mm, and 2mm. When you style your goatee, you can choose the attachment to suit your look.
Step 3: Comb and Trim
Before you switch the trimmer on, be sure to comb your facial hair. This will help the trimmer to work along the hairs without clogging. Trim along the full beard line, making sure all hairs are around 3-5mm long. If you want to grow a longer goatee, this comes in right at the end. For now, trim to an even length across your face.
Step 4: How to Shape a Goatee
Time to start sculpting! Remove the comb and switch to the precision trimmer head, and start from the neck, using gentle, smooth strokes. Then move onto the cheeks. Remember to take it slowly, pausing every few strokes to see how the shape of the goatee is coming along.
Step 5: Define Your Goatee
Now you have the rough outline, you can begin to shape it properly. At this stage you need to trim round the lips to define the shape. Create a triangle under your lower lip and trim the upper lip carefully for clean cut lines.
