It’s crucial to clear up a common misunderstanding while discussing the traditional goatee. That is to say, a full goatee and a classic goatee are two different things.
Most of us associate the term “goatee” with the full mustache and chin facial hair style adopted by a number of celebrities, including Brad Pitt.
The “traditional” goatee, on the other hand, is merely a chin-length of well groomed facial hair. The traditional goatee has no mustache, which is the main difference between it and a full goatee.
Goatees of any kind make a statement that is somewhere in the center. You want to grow facial hair but don’t want to go all-out with a full beard.
You’re not wishy-washy, but you’re a laid-back, easygoing man who doesn’t get too worked up over the little things that life throws at us on any given day.
What Face Shape Does the Classic Goatee Look Best On?
Goatees, including the traditional type, suit a wide range of facial forms, although the classic version suits men with rounder faces the best. If you have a receding hairline or are bald, it also looks fine, but maintain it well-trimmed and not scraggly.
A goatee (of any sort, actually) will give you a more grown-up, mature aspect if you have a so-called “baby” face.
Trimming a Classic Goatee
The classic goatee does not necessitate a lot of upkeep. Simply keep it clipped to approximately an inch in length. Hair should not be allowed to grow past the corners of your mouth. Also, keep the area around your mustache shaved.
