How to Grow and Maintain the Perfect Barely-There Goatee

Growing a thin goatee is easy. Just follow these simple steps:

1. Grow It Out

The first step in creating the perfect barely-there goatee is to let the hair grow out about two inches. Give yourself plenty of growth at the beginning, so you see the pattern and thickness of your hair. While growing your hair, it is essential to start washing it daily with a beard wash to keep it clean and manageable without removing any of the necessary sebum oils that keep your face hydrated and itch-free.

2. Trim and Shape

Next, it's time to trim your barely-there goatee to the desired length. This style does not require a lot of hair as it has a more natural look. Shorten the hair on the underside of your chin and along your goatee's edges with scissors and a comb. Start at the base of your chin and work toward your cheeks. Using a beard trimmer, shape the edges as desired. Make sure to shave off the hair on your cheeks using a shaving lube to prevent skin irritations. We recommend picking up a beard oil to help nourish and moisturize your barely-there goatee, which will help maintain its shape.

3. Maintain 

Maintaining your barely-there goatee starts with daily washing and moisturizing to keep it soft and manageable. Also, brush your goatee daily to tame stray hairs and keep its more natural shape. Make sure to regularly trim your goatee to maintain its shape and desired length.
