How to Do a Chin Puff Goatee
Nothing draws attention to the chin like the Chin Puff. When grown and maintained properly, this is a look that will set you apart.
How to Do the Chin Puff Goatee Step-by-Step
Shave your cheeks, neck and mustache clean.
To create the initial shape, you want to leave at least a 1/2-inch of hair between the lower lip and chin.
Allow just this area to grow for a couple weeks to create a thick strip of hair. As it grows, use your Wahl trimmer to carefully craft the desired rectangular shape.
Let the puff grow beyond the chin for a better look. Those who do, make sure to trim and shape as you go. Up to an 1 inch past the chin is a solid length for this look.
