How to Do a Door Knocker Beard Goatee

The right facial hair can open a lot of doors. The Door Knocker Beard combines elements of the Horseshoe, Goatee and Soul Patch. Don’t knock it until you’ve tried it!

How to Do the Door Knocker Beard Goatee Step-by-Step

  • 1

    Using your Wahl trimmer or Wahl shaver, trim or closely shave your cheeks, leaving the mustache, chin and area surrounding the mouth untouched.

  • 2

    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 the other side, paying close attention to keeping both sides even.

  • 3

    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 continuous horseshoe shape from above your lip to your chin.

  • 4

    Being careful to keep the Soul Patch just beneath the lower lip, clear the area between the corners of your mouth and the chin, forming a sharp boundary where your chin whiskers begin.
