Close shaven - Men's Haircut

We’ll now move on to a style that isn’t really a beard and isn’t really a mustache either: the Goatee.

The goatee has gained tremendous popularity in recent years. We now present you with a list of goatee styles.

Defining what exactly constitutes a Goat is a subject that has been open to debate throughout history. Generally speaking, it combines elements of a mustache and a beard while leaving the cheeks closely shaved.

The Greek mythological god Pan, half man and half goat, is depicted as carrying a Goat. Yes, the goat has been around for a very long time.

28. Classic Goat
Classic Goat - Men's Haircut

When talking about the classical billy goat, it is important to clear up a common misconception. The classic goat and the complete goat are two different things. When most of us think “goatee,” we think of the combination of mustache and chin hair that is worn by a multitude of celebrities, such as Brad Pitt for example.

The “classic” goatee, on the other hand, consists simply of neatly trimmed chin hair. There is no mustache with the classic goatee, and this is its main difference from the full goatee.

Men with round faces can’t go wrong with the Classic Goatee.

29. Full Goatee
Full Goatee - Men's Haircut

As seen earlier, the full goatee is the combination of the classic goatee with a mustache. The mustache follows the contours of the mouth to connect with the hair on the chin.
Many people wear a full goatee and it is difficult to identify a general personality that emerges. Some would say it fits a laid-back, easygoing type of man, while others say it shows a cautious attitude when it comes to facial hair, namely, that they don’t want to wear a full beard, but don’t want a “baby” face either.
The full goatee can also be a good place to start if you’re not sure if a full beard is right for you.

You want to keep hair on your chin if you have a diamond-shaped face, and the full goatee meets that requirement.

30. Goatee + mustache
Goatee + mustache - Men's Haircut

As the name suggests, this style consists of a mustache connected to a goatee. From there it can be transformed into several different styles. But there is no doubt that it is a classic style.
The goatee and mustache man is open to experimentation. He likes to find out what style of beard works best for him, and that goatee may just be the first step toward an entirely different style. He may feel that his clean-shaven face isn’t masculine enough (ah, the curse of the “baby” face) and that adding a goatee and mustache will bring out the manly beast in him.

The goatee and mustache are ideal for men with square faces, who prefer to avoid a full beard.

31. Anchor-shaped beard
Anchor-shaped beard

39. Flybeard
Flybeard - Men's Haircut

There is so much to say about such a small piece of hair. The fly beard – which consists of just a little hair under the mouth – generates two reactions: people either love it or hate it. The Soul Patch also has a rich history. Its roots go back at least to the 1940s when jazz aficionados roamed the earth (or at least the United States). Jazz musician Dizzy Gillespie made the style famous – then the Flybeard went into hibernation for a few decades before reappearing in the late 20th century.

The flybeard slightly lengthens the appearance of round faces.

40. Balbo beard
Balbo beard - Men's Haircut

The Balbo works great for men with square, diamond-shaped faces.

41. Van Dyke beard

Van Dyke beard - Men's Haircut
The Van Dyke is a retro yet modern style of beard. The traditional Van Dyke consists of a short pointed beard and a mustache. The rest of the face is clean shaven. In the example, the mustache is in a handlebar to spice things up.
If you wear a Van Dyke, you may be the type who likes things traditional, especially when they can be incorporated into modern society. You have a bit of a rebellious streak in you and are confident in your appearance.

Men with long faces or pointed chins wear the Van Dyke very well because it makes the chin more rounded.

42. Beard collar and mustache

Beard collar and mustache - Men's Haircut

The beard collar and mustache is a style that was very common among American rappers in the early 2000s. It consists of a thin beard collar going around the jaw and mouth connecting the mustache.
