The Circle Beard is a small chin beard that connects around the mouth to a moustache. All together, the chin patch and moustache form a circle–or sometimes oval–shape. These days people often call this style a Goatee and it might also be confused with a Van Dyck, but the proper term is Circle Beard or Door Knocker. The Goatee refers simply to a small beard on the chin, like a billy goat, and the Van Dyck includes a moustache and beard that aren't attached to each other on the sides of the mouth. Whatever you call it, the most important thing is that you like the look and it fits your face and personality. To get a Circle Beard, it's best to spend several weeks growing out a full beard. Then, shave down the cheek area and trim the outer edges for smooth, symmetrical lines trying to align with your smile lines.
