The full goatee, or circle beard (not to be confused with its cousin, the Van Dyke beard), can be traced back to ancient Greece, where it was inspired by the goatish good looks of the god Pan. Today’s goatee styles have evolved, but this classic look has lost none of its appeal.
It’s a favourite of the always-in-style Idris Elba, but Brad Pitt’s straggly long goatee garnered mixed reviews. Abraham Lincoln was also a fan of the goatee beard, but wore his in a more conservative, wider format. There are many different goatee styles to choose from, but with this simple guide we will teach you how to shave the most popular goatee beard.
