How to Do a Hipster Goatee
This term has come to mean a lot of things. In the case of facial hair, there is no mistaking its awesomeness. It combines a mustache with a little chin hair, and it’s simple to maintain.
How to Do the Hipster Goatee Step-by-Step
You want to grow a small patch of hair that adequately covers the front of the chin.
Let the mustache grow a 1 to 2 weeks, or until it reaches medium thickness. Allow the mustache to extend beyond the corners of the mouth.
Shave every couple of days to remove stubble in the areas that are meant to be clean-shaven. Also, make sure to keep a clear line of separation between the upper lip and mustache itself.
