How Do You Groom Your Beard Properly?
What are things to be done when grooming your beard?
You have probably stumbled upon this article because first, you definitely have a beard, and second you want to know some tips on how to properly groom it; well, here goes. To make sure that your hairs are all facing in the same direction and are at their greatest height, first get a comb, then use that comb to comb your hair towards your hair growth direction. After you are done trimming your beard, you can now decide on how you want your beard to look like for this particular day.
Do make sure to do some regular shaving of your beard like you usually do and make sure that the exposed parts such as the neck and cheeks are included. If you have just used a shaving cream, then do make sure to wash it off and then after that, slightly wet your beard. Subsequently, do make sure that you already know how much hair you want trimmed and then adjust the hair length selector accordingly. Do take note that if it is your first time using a trimmer and do not really know how to use it, then it is recommended that you pick the longer hair setting to avoid trimming great lengths from your beard’s hair.
What must be done to trim the length of your beard?
Before embarking on the trimming process, do make sure to put on the trimmer’s guard attachment; then, turn the trimmer so that the cutting unit’s front is not facing you. Start off trimming below your chin, then by following the line of your jawbone, trim towards your ears and upper beard line making use of an upward motion. Make sure that the trimmer’s guard attachment will be able to follow your face’s contours. You may opt to trim your beard following the direction of your beard hairs’ growth or you can also trim against their direction.
What is the importance of defining your beard line?
Beard lines can be defined by removing the trimmer’s guard attachment first; then, you vertically hold your trimmer to make sure that its cutting blades are now facing towards you. By ensuring that cutting blades are placed on your skin lightly, you can begin trimming your beard line’s edge by using your preferred trimming motion on whichever location you also prefer.
How is the beard tapered and thinned?
You can taper and thin your beard by firstly removing the trimmer’s guard attachment; then use the trimmer’s attached comb or any other small comb to hold the hairs of your beard in place. 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.
