What is a Goatee?

First things first. Let’s make sure we are all on the same page. I will give a brief definition of the goatee beard.

Different people seem to have different definitions for the term “goatee.” It is even likely that there is an image that pops into your mind every time you hear the word. But what is a goatee beard in the first place?

The original goatee during historical times was basically a tuft of facial hair on a man’s chin that wasn’t connected to a mustache. It is similar to what you see on a goat’s chin.

It was only during the 1990s that the goatee started to take on a newer and more universal definition. Today, a goatee is a beard style with facial hair only on the chin. However, most men prefer to grow a mustache as well.

To be honest, I agree with them. Goatees with mustache look better than goatees without it.

Why Should You Consider a Goatee Beard as a Bald Man?

When you are bald, it is easy to assume that you also need to keep your face hairless. However, there are many good reasons why bald men should consider getting a goatee beard, and these include the following:

  • It makes your face look more balanced.

Accept it or not, that bald head of yours will make you stand out no matter where you go. Pairing it with a goatee beard can counterbalance your baldness so you don’t look weird or strange.

  • It works wonders in making you look younger.  

Baldness is often associated with old age. Unfortunately, if you are still young but you just prefer a shaved scalp, this hairstyle can make you look older.

Similarly, if you are already in your prime years, you don’t want to make things worse. By adding a goatee to your style, you won’t just look trendier because you can also sport a more youthful appearance.

  • It adds shape to your face.

The hair on your scalp can make your face look more angular. But if you are bald, there won’t be anything to do this job. This is where a goatee beard comes in handy. Your goatee can shape your face in the same way that your scalp hair once did.

Grow a long goatee to make a round face have better and sharper angles. On the other hand, grow a short goatee style to make your oval face look less weird.

You get the point.

  • Removes attention from your bald head

An awesome goatee beard is a fantastic way to remove the attention off your head. It also makes you look badass and masculine.

Best Goatee Styles for Bald Men

Now that you know what a goatee is and why you should get one if you are bald, here are some of the best goatee styles you can consider:

Anchor Goatee

Obviously, this is a guy with hair but I wanted to show you the anchor goatee. It is very difficult to find such specific photos online (a bald guy with an anchor goatee). Trust me.

An anchor goatee features a well-sculpted chin beard shaped like an anchor. With this style, the beard is much wider along the jawline than the mustache.

It is the perfect option for men who cannot grow a full beard because its shape creates the illusion of a distinct beard shape.

Full Goatee

Also known as the classic goatee, a full goatee is one of the most popular goatee styles. It is also the first thing that comes to mind when people hear the word goatee.

A full goatee looks like a circle beard but instead of a rounded appearance, it features straight lines. The soul patch and beard are connected to the mustache, with the chin hair extended to the mouth’s edges.

When we refer to the full or traditional goatee, we are talking about the stubble or short version of it. There is a whole different goatee category about long goatees!

Van Dyke Goatee

A Van dyke goatee is a goatee variation that consists of mustache and hair on the chin but these two are disconnected. In addition to his difference from the traditional goatee, a Van dyke one usually has a handlebar mustache curled and styled upward.

Just remember that while it looks like a great compliment for your bald head, you might need to apply style wax with a good degree of hold to keep it in place.

This style will definitely make you stand out from the crowd!

Long Goatee

While it might take you more time to grow out hair and achieve a long goatee, it is a very masculine style you won’t be able to resist.

This goatee style is often linked with bikers. You can make it look as natural as you want but you might want to trim the sides a bit and keep it more defined.

Braided Goatee

Long braided goatee

A long goatee can be braided and be styled in a really unique fashion. Much like a traditional long beard, you can place some badass Viking beads or rings on your long goatee and braid it.

It literally takes 1-2 minutes to do it and you won’t regret it!

In my opinion, long and braided long goatees are the best options for bald men. They remove all the attention from your head to your magnificent beard and make your face look more mascular.

Pair these things with a great body and you have mastered the bald with beard look forever.

Extended Goatee

An extended goatee is practically similar to a traditional goatee but this time, without a lot of restrictions. This style lets you wear a mustache and a small strip of hair can extend from the chin and connect to your sideburns.

This is a very extraordinary style. Not very popular. But, this can make you stand out.

Landing Strip Goatee

Landing strip goatees are among the simpler goatee variations. Aside from being easy to grow and maintain, you also don’t need to grow a mustache with this style.

The hair right under the mouth is trimmed along the edges of the mouth in a straight line. You can trim it short or extend it to any length under the chin.

Badass style. You have to wear it with confidence and not hear to what other people think about you. If you are that type of strong guy, go for it.

Pointed Goatee

pointed goatee

Just so you know, goatees are quite versatile, letting you play around and trim your facial hair depending on what you want or need.

A pointy goatee is simply a medium-length goatee with short mustache, shaven sides and pointed hair on your chin. It is similiar to the ducktail beard but it doesn’t involve cheek hair and sideburns.

The hair on your chin should be styled with beard wax creating an imaginary triangle. pointing down. Perfect for guys with chubby or round faces.

Why Should I Choose a Goatee Over a Full Beard?

While a full beard might look great, there are several reasons why a goatee is a better option for some men.

  • Goatees can save your cheeks from discomfort, irritation, and itching since the style occupies just a small part of your face.
  • Trimming your goatee won’t take you more than a minute.
  • Styling goatees doesn’t take too long.
  • You don’t need to use any styling product for your average and short-length goatee.
  • Goatees are cleaner.
  • A trimmer is the only styling tool you need for your goatee.
  • Awesome for guys with patchy beards.
  • Awesome for badass guys with motorbikes
