How to Do a Boxed Beard Goatee
Its shape tells you everything you need to know about the name. A mix of mustache and chin whiskers, this look provides a frame of facial hair around your mouth.
How to Do a Boxed Beard Goatee Step-by-Step
Using your Wahl trimmer or Wahl shaver, closely trim or shave your cheeks, leaving both the mustache and the hair on your chin.
Using your shaver, create a vertical line of hair about 1/2-inch wide from the corner of the mouth to your chin. Do the same on both sides, paying close attention to keeping them even.
Using your trimmer, trim the upper edge of your mustache to create a sharp border, leaving just a 1/2-inch of hair. The hair should create a boxed shape from above your lip to your chin.
