How to Grow a Goatee With a Mustache. A Van Dyke is one of many goatee styles. It combines a goatee with a moustache. Goatee styles such as this are popular and compliment a wide variety of face shapes. Goatees require constant maintenance and men who want them should be prepared to shave every day. Some men simply cannot grow a good looking goatee.
Stop shaving for a few days. As your stubble starts to grow in, you will begin to get a feel for whether you will look good with a van dyke or any of the goatee styles.
Shave your face, leaving the hair on your lip and chin. It's important that your goatee is symmetrical, so take special care when shaving towards the edge.
Keep maintaining your Van Dyke goatee by shaving every day. As the goatee grows longer, you may find that you need to trim it.
Add a thickening lotion if you think you need it. You cannot change the genetics that makes your goatee look a bit thin, but you can do something to make it look better. A thickening lotion may be just what you need to get a nice, full goatee.
