Today, it has lost none of its appeal and is a favorite of the always-cool Johnny Depp, who often pairs his with a mustache. Abraham Lincoln was also a fan of the Goatee, but wore his in a more conservative, wider form. The Goatee provides excellent coverage for those with triangular faces or pointy chins.
1. Trim your whiskers to around 3-5mm to make them easier to style.
2. Use a full-size trimmer without the beard-trimming comb to create a neat boundary, the outline of your Goatee, on the hair around your chin. The width is up to you. Wider goatees suit longer faces. Extra tip: You can use your full-size trimmer to clip the remaining hair from your cheek and neck area, making smooth and gentle movements against the hair growth.
3. Now use your precision trimmer to create a triangle (or rounded shape) under your lower lip, carefully touching the edges of the hair with the trimmer to form well-defined lines. Extra tip: be sure to hold the trimmers upright during use.
4. Place the beard and mustache comb – or the zoom wheel – at the 3rd or 4th position (or the setting of your choice) to reduce the length of your goatee.
5. Shave your cheeks and neck clean with a rotary shaver, moving in a gentle, circular motion. A mini foil shaver is ideal for shaving your mustache and the tighter areas around your beard. Extra tip - As your Goatee grows in you can create different effects by graduating the length of your trimming comb across your style.
Styling / maintenance
Keep the area round your Goatee cleanly shaved with a Philips shaver, and use the trimming comb to keep your Goatee at the length you prefer.
