Chin Strap Beard
The Chinstrap is for those with a good head on their shoulders. It creates or emphasizes a strong jawline with a thin, half- to one-inch strip of hair that runs sideburn to sideburn.
How to Do a Chin Strap Beard Step-by-Step
Grow your beard for 1 to 2 weeks or until you have consistent hair length.
With the trimmer, carve a half-inch (1/2") line straight down from your sideburns to the jawline. Be sure to keep the width consistent.
Following the jawline, carve a half-inch (1/2") line to the center of your chin on both sides of the face, creating one continuous strip from one sideburn to the other.
