Ah, the Skinny Goatee, the preferred look of the “bad boy” in every boy band. (C’mon! Don’t let that turn you off.) Thin, vertical stripes of hair connect a meticulously clipped mustache to its beard counterpart down below with the slightest hint of a soul patch for added mystery.
Works for: Fuller faces, like a square-shaped one with a broad forehead, cheekbones, and jawline, that grow straight, coarse hair.
How to get it: With a beard and hair trimmer, trim the goatee area down first. Then, use a good blade (and good shaving techniques) to outline the goatee before shaving the rest of your face. Go slowly to create those even lines…and to avoid having to start over completely.
