The most important things to consider when choosing a goatee style are the type of face and the cut. Different types of goatee styles include natural goatee, French cut goatee, German cut goatee, the goat patch and the soul patch.
A goatee is often a good option for men with a round or square face. The goatee may or may not include a mustache. The French goatee is one of the most popular styles and it consists of a trim mustache and beard with connecting lines along the sides of the mouth. Another style is the Van Dyke, a goatee that includes a mustache and chin hair, but with no connecting lines.
