This style gets its name from seventeenth-century Flemish painter Sir Anthony Van Dyke. When done right, the Van Dyke is downright artsy.
Stop shaving for about 1 week. At this point, your whiskers will be shorter than necessary to achieve this style but you can begin shaping it, while keeping the rest of your face clean-shaven.
Shave your cheeks clean, leaving your chin whiskers and mustache intact.
As your chin beard or goatee grows longer, use your Wahl trimmer to carefully trim it into a pointed shape. Try not to trim too deeply into the beard or snip off the tip you’ve worked so hard to grow.
Wahl offers trimmers and grooming kits that let you achieve the look you want and keep it looking great.Product Selector
Experiment with shapes that look best with your facial features and also work with the time you want to spend maintaining your style.
Thickness can be managed with a snap-on length guide comb or an adjustable-length guide comb.
Longer styles around the mouth should always be trimmed in the direction of hair growth.
Shorter styles around the mouth can be trimmed with or against hair growth.
Make sure to use the detail blade, available with many Wahl trimmers, to get into tight spaces and create tighter lines.
Always clean up loose or long hair around the lips.
Some goatee-esque styles require attention every couple of days while others only need re-shaping a few times a month.
