3) The chin puff
Not a goatee for shrinking violets
Some goatee styles are shy, sitting on the face but not really putting themselves forward. The chin puff, though, is an entirely different beast. A thin, slightly elongated U-shaped beard that starts at the lower lip and extends down past the chin, there's a certain amount of dedication needed to actually grow and maintain it.
The steps to your dream chin puff
The first step is to simply grow a conventional beard, which can then be shaped into any of the different mustache and goatee styles around. For the chin puff, shave inwards, starting at the ears and switching sides periodically. Once you get to the chin area, shave from side by side to achieve a nice central position for the chin puff itself, finishing off with a trimmer.
An ideal facial hair pairing...
When the chin puff is combined with a handlebar mustache, the result is a look that might have observers wondering whether you are a 19th century courtier who has just been teleported into 21st-century Britain. But of course, why should this combination be such a surprise? After all, the handlebar 'tache and the chin puff are both very proud styles.
