Ask Aaron Q/A: The best ways to maintain a goatee
Aaron answers a question about the best ways to maintain a goatee
Graham Hope, from the UK, asks:
“I have a goatie beard and find it difficult with a normal gillette style razor to keep the shape and remove the small amount of beard from the inside of the beard. Apart from going to my barbers every other week to keep it how he cut it and I like it, what can you recommend?”
Maintaining facial hair can be tough! Thanks for your question! It sounds as if you are using a cartridge or cassette type razor. I would try stretching your skin in different ways to see if that could help. If not, I recommend picking up a shavette such as a Parker or Bluebeards Revenge shavette this would be a great way to maintain your goatee.
