HOW TO TRIM YOUR BEARD AT HOME WITH ELECTRIC CLIPPER
- Allow the hair to grow in length for around 4-6 days.
- Start with a dry beard!
- A beard comb or brush gets the hairs in shape and prepares them for trim.
- Ensure that your electric clipper has graded numbers and a half setting to allow for some flexibility in choosing your preferred length. Grade 1 means the hair will be cut to between 1-3 mm in length. Grade 2 , 2-6 mm in length. Your clipper may be set also from 1/2 inches. If you’re unsure how short you would like your beard to be, it’s best to start trimming with a higher clipper grade. You can then repeat the process with a lower grade, if you wish. In cases where the thickness of the beard differs on various parts of the face, it’s best to use a short grade on thicker areas such as the chin and mustache area.
- Tidy up your beard. Set your clipper on 0 and remove the clipper guard. The teeth should be closed. Tilting your head back slightly, use the flat side on your clipper to create a line. Start at the Adam’s apple and shave the hairs away to a width of two to three fingers. Generally speaking, full beards only look good if the throat area has clear, symmetrical contours.
- To create a natural finish to the beard, trim the neck are with the clippers on a grade lower than you used to trim the bulk of the beard.
- Apply a few drops of shaving oil into the beard when finished to ensure it looks healthy.
- It’s easier to get clean contours if you trim your beard regularly. Long beard hairs spoil the line and create their own fuzzy contours.
