Side Burns – Styling sideburns can be more difficult than other facial hair. You want to make sure that the transition from the hair on your head down to the side of your face have a gradual fade. You don’t want to look like you just missed a spot shaving and oversized “chops” are very over powering.

Goatee – The goatee is a good happy medium for men who want to try some facial hair but don’t have the patience for a full beard. For the initial shaping you may want to go to a barber to ensure you line up both sides evenly. You will also need to maintain your shaving routine for the rest of your face to keep that neat and tidy.
