Beard Grooming – The Royale Beard

The royale beard, or royale goatee, is a moustache anchored by a chin strip. Sounds simple enough, right? But just how exactly do you style a royale beard look?

Celebs including Brad Pitt, Ryan Gosling and Donald Glover are all fans of this beard style, and with the All Purpose Gillette STYLER, you can achieve this look too. A beard royale is all about simplicity and mastering a defined gap between the upper and lower parts of your royale beard goatee look.

The Royale Beard look

There are countless facial hair styles, but this doesn’t mean that trimming a royale goatee will be complicated. Here’s a simple set of steps to get you on your way to the popular royale beard goatee style:

Step 1: Select a Fixed-Length Comb for Trimming

The right comb length on your trimmer can help you style your 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 a royale beard styles can help reduce tug and pull while shaving, and it can help prevent clogged blades.

Step 3: Define Your Goatee Shape

Remove your trimmer’s comb attachment and trim your beard to define the Royale Beard and 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 – to style the moustache of your royale beard you’ll need decent growth, we recommend using the highest comb attachment here.

Step 5: Prep Your Face

Rinse your face with warm water to help hydrate your hair in preparation for shaving your royale beard look. Then, lather up the parts of your face that you want to shave completely bare – the non-royale beard 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 blades attachment onto your Gillette STYLER handle and shave with light, gentle strokes, to give yourself a close shave. Any Fusion5™ 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.

You will want to shape up any royale beard goatee when growth starts to alter the shape of your facial hair look. Using a lower comb is ideal for tidying up stray hairs.

Step 8: Edge with the Precision Trimmer

On the back of all Fusion5 razors is a precision blade; use this to help define the royale goatee 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. This will help to avoid ingrown hairs and irritation letting you pull off a royale beard style in comfort.

You have just mastered the Royale beard goatee!

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