English Vocabulary to talk about Facial Hair (Moustache & Beard styles) – Free English Lesson Online


Hey do you love watching friends? I used
to love it I still find it very relevant there was one episode where Julia
Roberts herself came up on the show and she was acting as a makeup artist
and this is what she said… she was complaining about an actress and this is
what she said “Unless she let’s me bleach her mustache,
it look it would look as of her eyebrows have fallen on her face” Okay now for
those who don’t know what is she talking about
well she’s talking about facial hair okay so as English learners we are going
to learn talking about facial hair. So let’s get started my name is Emmelda and
I’m gonna start with eyebrows. What eyebrows actually brows or brow is that
area of your forehead which is just above your eyes but when you say eyebrow
it means the thin patch of hair which is just above your eye or eyes so these two
sets are called eyebrows, okay eye brows okay let’s use it as an idiom-
To raise someone’s eyebrows is to make someone surprised or
shocked, okay so maybe the way she walked raised some eyebrows maybe the that
means maybe the way she walked surprised or shocked a lot of people okay so
that’s eyebrows for you okay moving on to the next one
sideburns, what a sideburns? Sideburns are hair which are just in front of your
ears and they go all the way up to your jaw okay
so let’s say this guy is having hair till here so this becomes his sideburn okay your
hair just in front of your chin or in front of your ears until your chin
that’s sideburn but the most common facial hair that we have or the most
popular facial hair we have is moustache it’s not mushtashe is moustache, moustache .
So let’s look at the popular styles that we have the first one I have is Chevron
what is a chevron? Chevron is a thick patch of hair which was quite common in
or during 70s and 80s but it’s still quite popular okay so that’s a thick
patch of hair which is well trimmed it’s called Chevron okay the another style
that we have is pencil. I don’t wanna spoil his face I’m gonna draw it
here let’s say this is the lip okay so a thin very thin moustache, yeah my drawing
sucks people stop it a very thin moustache is considered as a pencil
moustache okay but this is considered Chevron. We also have handle oh yes
handle looks very similar to what a handle actually looks like handle
moustache okay so this is the person’s lip and you have moustache like this, this
shape moustache is called a handle moustache but before we get onto this let
me talk about something very interesting mother’s a moustache called the English
moustache right well it’s very similar to what we have like that what we have what
we call hell but it’s actually quite straight. okay so the hair becomes thinner
at the end so this is considered English it’s very similar to the handle shape
moustache that we have but you know better you see this what kind of movies
do you see this ? You will see this in very old British
movies it’s called an English moustache okay
finally I have for you is Fu-Manshu Well if you watch a lot of Chinese movies especially old Chinese movies you
will have somebody whose moustache is like fully grown and it will fall below
his chin okay this style of moustache is actually adopted by the Chinese Mongol
invaders so that’s the style Fu-Manshu so you will see this moustache quite
common in Chinese movies and the name Fu-Manshu actually adopted from a very famous character okay so that’s Fu-Manshu
moustache for you. Well we’ve talked about moustache, is there something missing?
Of course we’re going to talk about the beard okay
beard… beard… beard.. okay the first one I have for you is stubble, stubble is….. if a
man has…… it’s not fully …. he hasn’t shipped for like probably two
days and he has this hair around his jaw and lips it’s tiny head they’re not
fully grown you called them stubble okay what if he decides that you
know what I’m not gonna shave in another three four months he’s gonna have….. he’s
gonna cover the entire potion with hair right? Now that’s what you call as a full
beard a… full beard, otherwise if it’s just the tiny little hair
sticking out of the skin they’re called stubble. Fully grown beard is called a
full beard but recently I won’t say recently this past decade I’ve seen guys
keeping just this potion just around the chin area okay let’s draw a face again
or just show the chin again you have somebody’s lips okay and if he decides
to just keep his hair till here he’s keeping a goatee,
that’s called a goatee, yes it’s like have you seen a goat he has a patch of
of hair, yes this is called a goatee, so that’s a goatee. I’m
gonna talk straight about soul patch. I’ll come back for the mutton chops. Soul
patch, Soul patch is a tiny little hair that people just keep here it’s just
right below your lips okay it’s here, Now that is called a Soul patch. I don’t know
why people call it a Soul patch, I have no idea but yeah that’s called a soul
patch this is a goatee and now the most famous Mutton chops or the Wolverine
style if you noticed Wolverine, now that guy , Where shall I draw? I
don’t have space okay I’m gonna draw it here okay this is his face this is his
moustache, this is lip he will have beard only till here, including his side burns
and some portion of his cheeks that is considered Mutton chops
by the way or the Wolverine style so he will have a moustache actually Wolverine doesn’t even have a
mustache he just has sideburn Oh mutton chops beard. Oh mind my
ridiculously untidy drawing. Okay so if you see someone who has just kept beard
only till his cheeks he’s left the chin area
it’s called Mutton chops. So people we’ve learned various expression various names
for the facial hair I hope next time when you go to a salon you know exactly
what bread or style who use when you’re talking about your beard okay I will be
back with another lesson until then stay healthy be beautiful and by the way I
like men who are clean shave that means they don’t have any of this except the
eyebrows okay but stay healthy be beautiful have fun be in style I’ll be
back soon see ya
