The extended goatee is a mustache that extends into a beard, but without sideburns, and is not to be mistaken with the Hollywood beard, which it strongly resembles. You’d be entering full beard territory if you added sideburns.
A “tailback” beard is another name for an extended goatee. It’s a mixture of a goatee and a mustache, no matter what you call it.
When it comes to the extended goatee style, there are a number of benefits, including the fact that you won’t have to perform any regular trimming or shaping, which is always beneficial if you’re unsure of your abilities in those areas.
After all, not everyone is a professional barber.
Men with extended goatees are more adventurous than those with full or traditional goates. They don’t necessarily want a full beard, but they also don’t want to be restricted to a standard goatee.
It can also be used in an office setting if it isn’t too shabby.
What Face Shape Does the Extended Goatee Look Best On?
If you have a long (oblong) face, the extended goatee will look good on you, but like other goatee styles, it will look good on a range of facial shapes. It’s also a terrific look if your cheeks have uneven or sparse hair growth.
Trimming an Extensive Goatee
When shaving your extended goatee, the best place to start is with the outline. Shave around your chin and cheeks with a shaver until you have the general outline you want.
Most of the time, the outline should begin about an inch above your Adam’s apple. This may be too long in the long run, but you can always cut it shorter; if you shave too close, too soon, you’ll have to wait to grow it back.
