The goatee beard is a style of beard worn by a large number of men. Here are my tips for properly trimming your goatee beard and taking care of it.

We're not going to hide it, the goatee beard is no longer a popular beard size at the moment. It must be said that all personalities, whether actors, singers, influencers, etc. all show up with a 3-day beard. Even the hipster beard is less popular today. The goatee beard was a very fashionable beard style in the 2000s but which still has its followers.


Here are my tips for trimming your goatee beard and taking care of it.


The goatee beard for what face shape ?


As with almost all beard styles, not everyone can wear the goatee beard. Indeed, due to its shape, which will therefore only take into account the chin, or even the mustache, the beard goatee is perfectly suited to men with a square face or a round face. Indeed, on a square face, the goatee beard will accentuate the lines of the face. On a round face, on the contrary, the goatee beard will make it possible to lengthen the face and thus avoid making it even rounder. In any case, the beard will not be recommended for men with thin faces, because it will be too present on the face.


How to care for a goatee beard ?


Given the shape of the goatee beard, especially if it is associated with a mustache, the size of this style of beard is quite delicate. You can't miss it, at the risk of having to shave everything, and you end up with a face without a beard ! Also, it will be necessary to use very precise accessories. Here are the different steps to trim a goatee beard :

Comb your goatee beard

Take your beard comb to properly comb your beard and have the hairs in the right direction. This will allow you to work well on the contours of your goatee beard.

Trim your goatee beard

Then take your beard trimmer to thin out your goatee beard first. A goatee must be worn light and not too heavy. Once you have finished this step, change your comb and take one adapted to the length of the goatee beard you want to have (2 mm, 4 mm, 6 mm, etc.). You should know that the long beard goatee, à la Florent Pagny, is not very recommended, a bit outdated. However, you should know that the ideal hair length for your goatee beard is 5 mm.

Of course, to have a perfect goatee beard, the cheeks and cheekbones must be completely clean-shaven.

Finalize your goatee beard

With the beard scissors, you can precisely finalize your beard size, by perfectly equalizing each hair. It would still be a shame to have hair of different lengths, it wouldn't be very pretty.

To perfectly contour your goatee beard and therefore have perfect lines, you can use either a straight razor or a safety razor . I advise you to use a transparent shaving gel for your beard. This will allow you to cut perfectly to the hair. Be careful to respect the symmetry on both sides.


If you have difficulty, there are stencils to draw your goatee perfectly.

What is important when you wear the goatee beard is to style your beard properly. More than any other beard style, the goatee beard then needs to have perfectly groomed beard hair, none should get lost ! Especially if you have a goatee beard of a certain length.


Also, to do this :

  • use a beard balm which, in addition to moisturizing your beard, will help to discipline the hairs.

  • if you tend to have curly or frizzy hair, you can use a beard straightener that will make your beard hair straight.
