What Is A Soul Patch
The mark of the jazzmen, beatniks, and hippies, the soul patch started its glory days back in the 1950s. It’s also known as the ‘mouche’ or ‘the jazz dot’ because it was mostly related to African-American musicians that thought of it as a great beard for rocking the trumpet. The first harbinger for the soul patch was the famous Dizzy Gillespie after which many followed.
Who Can Pull It Off?
Although the Soul Patch can accommodate almost every face type out-there I would suggest it most to the artistic types. It gives out a smooth appearance so the lifestyle should match the beard style. I would say that square and round faces would benefit more from this particular style. The dot descending past the mouth adds some vertical direction to the face, making it appear longer.
There are between 10,000 and 20,000 hairs on a man’s face and the average moustache has 600.
