How do you trim the length of your beard?
Before starting with the trimming process, make sure that the trimmer guard attachment is placed correctly; then, turn the trimmer so that its cutting unit is not facing towards you. Begin the trimming below your chin, then follow the direction of your jaw line, then trim in an upward motion your ears and upper beard line. Make sure that the trimmer’s guard attachment will be able to follow your face’s contours. Whichever you decide on, you are given the freedom to trim your hair either with the direction of your beard hairs’ growth or against the growth’s direction.
What is the importance of defining your beard line?
By removing the trimmer’s guard attachment and vertically holding the trimmer so that its cutting blades are now facing you, these things will help you define your beard line. By lightly placing the cutting blades on your skin, you can immediately start trimming the edge of your beard line by starting at your preferred location and using whatever motion suits you best.
How is the beard tapered and thinned?
By using a small comb of your choice or a styling comb to hold the hairs of your beard and by removing the trimmer’s guard attachment, you can actually taper and thin your beard. If you hold the trimming unit away from your face and horizontally, you can now start trimming by following the direction and length of your small comb or styling comb.
