Okay, now it’s time to get down to the nitty gritty and learn exactly how to trim your beard. Follow our step-by-step guide for a fool-proof and perfect trim every time.
STEP #1: Wash your beard
Cleansing should be the first step before any beard grooming session, so it’s time to wash your beard. Ensuring you cleanse your face and beard will remove any impurities, dirt or oil before you start. We recommend the Men Expert Barber Club 3-in-1 Beard + Face + Hair Wash
, rich in natural oils. This all-rounder is the perfect cleanser for those with beards. Your skin and beard will feel refreshed and nourished.
STEP #2: Grab a beard moisturiser
Next, you’ll want to grab a beard moisturiser. Not only will this keep your beard hair and face hydrated, it will also ensure your beard hair is easy to brush out and isn’t too unruly when you start to trim. Try the Men Expert Barber Club Short Beard Moisturiser
which soothes and comforts while softening unruly facial hair.
STEP #3: Comb it out
Before you reach for clippers, you’ll want to comb out your hair. This will help you identify which hairs need to be trimmed for an even, neat finish.
STEP #4: Time to trim
Use a beard trimmer to slowly trim your hair to an even length. Since beard trimmers come with various clipper attachments in different sizes (known as guards), you’ll want to find the right one to trim your hair with. Always start off slowly and don’t go in with the smallest guard first. It’s best to work your way there if you’re going for a big trim. You can always take more off, but the only thing that will put length back is time. After you’re done with the clippers, follow up with a pair of scissors to trim stray hairs and even it up if needed. Remember that different areas of your beard may look best at different lengths – one of the most flattering shapes can be to keep it a little shorter on the sides, and longer at the chin. If your moustache is getting a little long, a quick trim with scissors to keep it above your lips will do the trick.
STEP #5: Seal the deal
Once your beard is nicely trimmed, it’s time to finish off your look. Reach for the Men Expert Barber Club Beard Oil
as your last step to neaten up your beard and condition the hair. This daily beard oil is enriched with essential oils for healthy looking facial hair that doesn’t feel greasy.
