Classic Chin Curtain

The original style of chin strap beard, is the chin curtain. It is a line of hair that follows the jawline, running from ear to ear. This look is created by growing a full beard-- any length of hair is suitable for this look-- and then by shaving off the moustache. The thickness of the line of hair should be reduced by shaving a little off from top of the full beard. Also, excess hair that is under the chin and on the neck should be removed to give a clean finish to emphasise the chin strap shape.

Zig Zag

Create a quirky chin strap style by trimming the beard hair so that there is just a thin layer of hair. It's best to avoid having bushy beard hair as the zig zag will not be properly seen.Once the moustache is removed, the next step is to shave a zig zag shape across on the lower part of each cheek. The zig zag then joins together along the chin. Pull this look off by wearing it with confidence to ensure that the pattern dazzles onlookers.

Right-Angled Chin Strap

The right-angled chin strap is a variation of the classic chin strap. Instead of following the jawline to give a curved shape to the chin strap, the beard is more angular. This look is achieved by shaving a straight line into the beard from the top of the ear down to the same level as the lower lip. Shave a horizontal line from this point across to the chin. Like all other chin straps, there is no moustache and it will work with any length of beard hair.
