How to Do a Musketeer Beard Goatee
You don’t need sword skills to pull off the Musketeer Beard, but knowing how to handle a Wahl trimmer helps. This style is sharp and something you don’t have to fight with to maintain.
How to Do the Musketeer Beard Goatee Step-by-Step
Let a small patch of hair on the chin grow. The shape should be similar to a bandage you’d place horizontally across it.
Use your Wahl trimmer or Wahl shaver to cleanly shave your cheeks, jawline and upper parts of the chin.
Let the mustache grow 1 to 2 weeks, or until it reaches medium thickness. Keep it trimmed at the corners of the mouth.
Shave every couple of days to remove stubble in the areas that are meant to be clean-shaven.
