The Balbo is a very popular style of goatee that has made a reappearance as of late and has been made popular by everyone’s favorite Iron Man. This style of goatee is really hip looking and will make you look like a movie star, that or a pirate.
It’s much like the full goatee combined with the classic goatee. It features the classic goatee on the chin, which Robert Downey Jr. has sculpted to look edgy, plus he also extended it to the lip with a soul patch, both features which are optional.
That is combined with a disconnected mustache with no vertical lines of hair at the sides of the mouth. As you can see in the picture above, this style does take a very steady hand with a trimmer and wet shaving device in order to perfectly sculpt the Balbo.
A key difference between the Balbo and our next goatee, the Van Dyke, is that the Balbo features slightly extended chin hair which runs along the jaw line about half an inch past the corners of the mouth, as you can see from Mr. Downey above.
This is a perfect beard for any lumberjack, man’s man, rocker, biker, and anyone else who wants to look like a real tough guy. The full beard with a big goatee is a great old school style that has slowly been making a comeback over the years, especially with middle aged men.
This style consists of having a full beard from ear to ear, mustache included, neck and all. This beard and mustache is trimmed to about half an inch long and it’s kept that way. Where it gets interesting is the goatee, which as you can see above, is substantially longer than the rest.
This style usually features a goatee that is slightly wider than the mouth. If it’s too narrow it will look awkward compared to the rest of the beard. This beard is pretty simple to maintain because the hardest part is actually getting it to grow that long.
Of course yours doesn’t have to be that long, but in order for it to be distinguishable as a goatee from the rest of the beard it needs to be at least 6 inches longer than the rest of your beard. Otherwise the rest of the beard just needs to be trimmed with a guarded trimmer. It’s a great style if you want to stand out and if you have the time for it.
