Beards without mustaches are nothing new. While many men might think that a beard and a mustache are inseparable, history has shown us otherwise.
From Abraham Lincoln to Hugh Jackman, mustache-less beards have been in fashion for centuries.
Today, in the 21st century, there is even more narrowing down of beards without mustaches to goatees without mustaches.
In this article, we will tell you everything that you need to know about the goatee without mustache beard styles.
We will tell you how to craft one for yourself, how to maintain it, and also the reasons why someone might want such a beard style.
Why Would Someone Want A Beard Without A Mustache
While many of you might wonder why someone would want a beard without a mustache, there could be many reasons why someone might want a beard without a mustache.
Let us look at some of the reasons.
Patchiness is a common problem that plagues men across the world.
Patchy hair can leave one with feelings of low self-esteem and even depression. In such a scenario, it is not uncommon for someone to think that it is better not to grow facial hair that looks thin or wispy.
That could be a reason for not keeping a mustache.
Religion could be another reason. For example, men from the Amish community in Pennsylvania only grow a beard without a mustache because of religious inclinations.
A beard without a mustache is also suitable for younger men whose professional career demands such a thing from them.
For individuals with a diamond-shaped face or elongated face, a beard without a mustache adds breadth to the chin and hides the thinness of the chin.
And some of the simplest reasons might be that a wife or a girlfriend simply doesn’t like the mustache.
The above are just some of the reasons why someone might want a bear without a mustache.
Let us now look at the ways to grow this style and the tools required to do so.
What tools do I need to grow and maintain this style?
The two main tools that the growth of this beard demands are:
- A Razor
- An Electric Trimmer
The razor is required for a smooth mustache and neck, while the trimmer can help you keep the beard at a manageable length.
How to Grow A Goatee Without a Mustache?
Here is a step-by-step guide to growing the goatee no mustache but there are a lot of goatee styles which we will describe exactly below this how-to guide.
This is a general guide on how to do it.
The first step involves choosing a comb length on your trimmer that is correct for you. Choose according to the look you have in mind.
The comb attachments on most trimmers will be 2mm, 4mm, and 6mm.
In this step, you need to make sure that your beard length is of even length. Trimming your facial hair before shaving will help to eliminate tug and pull while shaving.
The benefit of this is that there will be no clogged blades later on.
Now it’s time to define your goatee. Remove the comb attachment from your trimmer and define the shape of your beard now. To get the best results, ensure that the hair on your neck and cheeks is short.
It is a common mistake by inexperienced shavers to trim off too much hair in the quest for perfectly even hair.
The naked eye can play tricks, and as such, it is best to shave slowly and pause from time to time to check the length.
Prepare your face for shaving by washing your face with warm water. Use a transparent shave gel to lather the parts of your face that you need to clean-shave, i.e., the non-goatee parts.
A shave gel can come in handy for protection from cuts and nicks.
Use light and gentle strokes to shave. The razor blades for the styler will come into play now.
Wash Your Blades
When you wash your blades, you are helping your shave because the blades often get clogged with hair or shaving cream on the edges.
Rinsing the razor helps to get optimum performance from it.
Use a precision blade to give shape to the goatee and create a clean outline.
Congratulations, you’re done. Now you need to rinse, dry your face, and apply an aftershave moisturizer to help your skin relax.
Now you can show off your goatee without a mustache look to the world.
You now have the keys to shape the goatee without the mustache of your dreams. However, did you think that there is just one goatee without a mustache style?
If so, it’s time to open your eyes to the different styles of a goatee without a mustache that you can have.
