How to Do an Anchor Beard Goatee

Boat or no boat, this is a great look. Yes, it’s shaped like an anchor. No, you will never be held back by it.

How to Do the Anchor Beard Goatee Step-by-Step

  • 1

    Use your Wahl trimmer to trim your cheeks.

  • 2

    Using your jawline as a guide, remove hair above the jawbone to outline your jaw. Then cut the hair along your jawline down to about 1/2-inch. After that, focus on the outermost edges of the jawline (closest to your ears), where hair should be the shortest. As you move closer to your chin, the hair should get longer, with the longest whiskers directly beneath your chin.

  • 3

    Below your lower lip, use your trimmer to remove hair at the corners of your mouth that extend to the sides of your chin.

  • 4

    Above the lip, trim a pencil-thin or pyramid-shaped mustache. You can use a bit of mustache wax to create a perfect point, or wear it natural for a softer look.

  • 5

    Allow the whiskers beneath your chin to grow for a few weeks, trimming with a guide comb to create a pointed shape.
