What exactly is the musketeer beard?
The musketeer beard is a combination of twirled mustache and goatee. Other than the fact that the remaining areas of your face are clean-shaven in this combination, there isn't much to explain about the styling. OK, sure. That sounds too simple at first. Let's call it something else. If you have the courage to think outside the box and go in different directions, then the Musketeer beard is exactly your thing. Eye-catching yet stylishly elegant. Let's be honest. Which woman doesn't like guys like Johnny Depp... But let's go into the details, because simple beard styling is different.
As already mentioned, the so-called “Victor Emanuel beard” is styling, the musketeer beard is a combination of chin and mustache. Because of this, we will first address the topic of basic shaving in the next paragraph.
First of all, it is important to get your beard into the desired shape. Remember that the musketeer beard consists exclusively of a goatee and mustache. So shaving your cheeks is the motto. At this point we first assume that you know the basic look of the musketeer beard. Now it's your turn. Shave your cheeks and bring out the key areas of your facial hair the way your desired musketeer beard style requires. A good tool for this is the good old razor . With the help of this tool, you can not only shape the contours of your future styling, but also remove stubble from your cheeks with virtually no residue.
So the topic of styling the mustache follows. We will now address this.
A defining feature of the Musketeer beard is the good old mustache. Unlike the so-called “toggle beard”, this more dignified beard style is twirled on the hair towards the cheeks. You can use Kaiser Wilhelm's beard as a reference. Shaped with the help of Beardwax , it fulfills the purpose of the musketeer beard in this styling. Striking and masculine, it emphasizes your facial features in a striking yet open way. So you have already conjured up the first part of the Musketeer beard on your face. The next step that we will look at is the goatee.
Your goatee is an important element in relation to the musketeer beard. The so-called soul patch is an extra-narrow goatee that is shaved in a triangle shape towards the chin in the area in the middle below the lower lip. This formation of your beard hair emphasizes the symmetry of your face. A truly sophisticated look that is guaranteed to cause a stir and emphasizes the trendy dandy or boho style. The use of a razor is also very popular here. It ensures that the contours of the Soul Patch appear neatly and neatly shaved and support the cultivated look already discussed.
As you can see, the Musketeer beard is not rocket science. If you intend to embody the true Zorro look, this styling is the right choice. No matter whether it is a heart-shaped face or an elongated face. The musketeer beard always fits. As always, you can of course find the right tools and care products, especially for shaving your cheeks, in our Charlemagne Premium Shop.
“A healthy and well-groomed beard is important for a real man, that’s why we offer everything you need to keep yours doing so.”
As barbers with over 20 years of experience in the trade, we were looking for styling and care products that convinced us 100%. There were some good products on the market, but none that really gave us what we needed. After some consideration, we decided in 2014 that we wanted to develop our own series. For two years, every evening after work in the barbershop, we used every free minute to work on developing the recipes in our basement. When it came to ingredients, the best was just good enough for us. We purchased the best available jojoba oils in Morocco, and argan oil from Italy.
After two years and numerous tests, we had our first product range, with which we have been delighting our customers ever since - we think 98% positive reviews speak for themselves. This has of course been continuously developed since its official launch in 2016. This is just one of the reasons why Charlemagne Premium products have won not just one, but several comparison tests in recent years.
You can of course find all of our products here in our online store. If you have any questions about our products, you can reach us at any time at firstname.lastname@example.org .
