It is important to take your face shape and hair volume into consideration when choosing a goatee beard style. Goatee beard will compliment an diamond or heart-shaped face as it broadens the chin, balancing the shape of the face.

Remember, a style that doesn’t compliment your face shape can make you look awkward.

  • Eat your protein; it’s said to help encourage hair growth. It grows your muscles, so this has to be true!
