How to Grow a Beard - Growing a Beard Tips

 Grooming your beard

Comb your hair in the direction that it grows so that your hair is at its maximum height and faces in the same direction. Then decide how you want your beard to look when you finish trimming.

Shave as you do regularly, including the exposed parts of your cheeks and neck. Wash the shaving cream off and wet your beard slightly. Then determine how much hair you want to cut and position your hair length selector accordingly. Remember, until you are familiar with the use of the trimmer, it's always better to choose a longer hair setting initially so as not to trim too much hair.

Trim Beard Length

Put the trimmer guard attachment on and turn the trimmer so that the front of the cutting unit is facing away from you. Start trimming under your chin and, following your jawbone line, use upward motion to work towards your ear and upper beard line. Allow the trimmer guard to follow the contours of your face. You can trim either against or in the direction of beard growth, whatever you prefer.

Defining Your Beard Line

Remove the trimmer guard and hold the trimmer vertically with the trimmer cutting blades facing you. Start with the edge of your beard line, and with the cutting blades resting slightly against your skin, move towards the edge of the beard line to trim the beard line to the desired location.

Thin And Taper The Beard

Remove the trimmer guard attachment and use the unit's styling comb or other small comb and hold the beard hair in place while trimming. Holding the trimmer horizontally, with the cutting unit facing away, move the trimmer along the length of the comb.

Creating The 'Stubble Look'

Make sure the trimmer guard is on and set to 1(1.5 mm) or 2 (2.5 mm) position. Hold the trimmer horizontally with the cutting unit facing up or down. Trim hair by moving up or down, against or in the direction of hair growth, whatever you prefer. Remove the trimmer guard attachment and repeat the previous two steps for an even closer "stubble look." Be careful not to remove too much of your hair, creating a "blotchy" look.

Beard Trimming Tips

Beard trimmers are easier to use than scissors, as you can adjust the trimmer settings to cut hair in different lengths. Set your beard trimmer to a longer hair length if you're new to one-you don't want to cut too much at first. Wet hair is longer than dry hair, so you can trim it a little at a time.
