How to Put Rubber Bands in Your Goatee

Rubber bands can hold your goatee in a kind of ponytail.

Rubber bands in your goatee are a bold fashion statement that not everyone can pull off. However, if you are one of the lucky few who can, then by all means do so. A rubber-banded goatee keeps your goatee reasonably tidy and also makes it extremely distinct; while a goatee might be reasonably common, a goatee with rubber bands holding it together definitely isn't.

Step 1

Grow a goatee that extends past your chin. This is not a standard goatee, as most goatees just sit on your chin in a cropped style. To use rubber bands, you must have a long enough goatee to twist into a tail.

Step 2

Twist the hanging goatee into a ponytail. Hold it this way with one hand.

Step 3

Put your thumb and forefinger through a rubber band to open it up.

Step 4

Slide your goatee through the gap you've created.

Step 5

Twist the rubber band around and slide your goatee through the new opening that is created. This will keep it tight.
