Trimming your beard the basics. By combing the hair of your beard you can be sure that your beard is at it maximum height and the hairs are facing the same direction. Before you start trimming you must decide what you want your beard to look like.Just shave as you always do and don’t forget the exposed parts of your neck and cheeks. The shaving cream must be washed out completely and your beard should be slightly wet. Adjust the hair length selector of your trimmer to the amount of hair you want to cut. Till the moment that you are used to trimming your beard with a trimmer it’s better use a longer hair setting so you don’t trim off too much.
Trimming the length of your beard. The trimmer must be used with the guard attachment on. Hold the trimmer in a way that the front of the cutting unit is facing away from you. Start using the beard trimmer on your chin following the line of your jawbone. Work you way up to your ear and upper beard. Using the guard attachment of the trimmer you can follow the contours of your face. You may trim either against or with the direction of beard growth, whichever you prefer.
Finding your beard line. Take off the trimmer guard attachment and keep the trimmer vertically with trimmer cutting blades facing you. Now trim the edge of your beard. The cutting blades should touch your skin lightly. Keep moving the trimmer along the edge of your beard till you reach the desired location.You can get additional information at Uppercut Deluxe Beard Balm.
The finishing touch trimming your beard. When the trimmer guard attachment is still attached to the trimmer remove this first. Use a small comb or the styling comb that came with the trimmer to hold your beard hairs in position. This gives the best control when using the trimmer. With the cutting unit facing away you hold the trimmer horizontally and move the trimmer along the comb.
