Beard Trimming Step By Step

The first step in beard trimming is to wash and condition it. And believe it or not, there are special beard soaps and conditioners. Your beard hair is different than the scalp on your head, so you should really wash and condition it with products made for your beard. Trust us, this will make all the difference.

Step 2, after your beard dries (and yes you can use a blow dryer) is to brush your beard out.

Brush your hair, and then comb it as well, against the grain of your beard. This will make the hairs of your beard stand both up and out.

Step 3 is of course creating a well-trimmed beard. Most men will use an electric trimmer, and when starting your trim, be sure to have a bigger guard on the trimmer to avoid cutting a section of your beard too short.

If you want something simple, then an even length all around is ideal. However, if you are going for a longer length, that complicates it somewhat.

The best way to work with more complicated shapes is to leave the hairs around your chin somewhat longer and to make your beard shorter on the sides of your face.

Consider a number 3 setting in the temple area, but when you get to the goatee area, a four or even a 5 setting. Most men use the corners of their mouths to establish the dividing line between the shorter and the longer hairs.

And your mustache should be as short as the hairs around your temples.

The final step is to define your neckline. This can get somewhat tricky, but the best bet is to trim everything below your Adam's apple.

In addition, it's ideal, whenever you have time, to apply some beard oil. Work it in with a comb to keep your beard moisturized
