How to Do a Landing Strip Goatee
In terms of your approach, the Landing Strip is a simple look to master. It’s similar to the Soul Patch, only with the hair connecting your bottom lip with your chin. It’s easy to land this look.
How to Do the Landing Strip Goatee Step-by-Step
Shave the cheeks, mustache and neck clean.
With your Wahl trimmer, you’ll want to leave a 1/2-inch strip of hair between the lower lip and chin.
As time goes on, continue to use your trimmer around the corners and edges to maintain a rectangular shape.
Ideally, whiskers for the Landing Strip should be 1/4-inch to 1/2-inch in length, so use your Wahl trimmer to achieve this length.
