The chin strap beard is tort and well-kept to the face, but this beard is actually quite difficult to maintain; it also doesn’t not suit everyone.
The Chin Strap requires almost daily shaping and care, therefore, should be considered as a labour intensive beard and understood in this way.
The chin strap extends from the sideburns, down the cheeks and connects underneath the chin area. It does not include a soul patch.
It is essentially just a line a few straight lines down and across the face which are connected as a single beard.
The thickness of the chin strap should be judged on your face and jawline, the rounder the face, the thicker you should make the chin strap.
For men with a strong jawline and a more square shaped face, then keep the chin strap thin and close to the jaw line.
The chin strap can be particularly difficult to shape at the neck as it has to follow the contour of your jawline, this is also very difficult to maintain precisely.
This chin strap is very unforgiving when it comes to mistakes, and does require lots of patience and practice to perfect. This beard is not as common as other counterparts.
Due to the complexity of this beard, take special consideration when it comes to deciding if this beard is right for you.
The chin strap beard is common amongst the Amish community who often go on to grow the variant the chin curtain.
All in all, we would say that this is more of an expert level beard, not one of the easier to master.
