What Is Beard Grooming?
How does one groom his beard?
First and foremost, you are reading this article because you obviously have a beard and you want to know what are the best ways of grooming your beard. 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. Then after doing some beard trimming, you can now make a decision as regards how you want your beard to be looking like.
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. Afterwards, decide on how much hair you want to trim then after that make sure that the hair length selector is positioned correctly. Take note, however, that if you do not really know how to use a trimmer then it would be safer and much better that you set it to its longer hair option so that not too much hair is cut from your beard.
What must be done to trim the length of your beard?
Before starting with the trimming process, make sure that the trimmer guard attachment is placed correctly; then, turn the trimmer so that its cutting unit is not facing towards you. Begin trimming by starting off below your chin; then, by using the line of your jawbone as guide, slowly trim in an upward motion towards your ears and upper beard line. Make sure that the trimmer’s guard attachment will be able to follow your face’s contours. You are given the option to trim your beard with the direction of your beard hairs’ growth or against it, whichever direction you actually want.
Why you need to define your beard line?
You can define your beard line by making sure that your trimmer guard attachment is removed and holding your trimmer in a vertical position making sure that the cutting blades of the trimmer are facing you. You can start off with your beard line’s edge; by making sure that the cutting blades are lightly placed in your skin, use desired motion towards the beard line’s edge and trim the line to whatever location you wish to start.
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. Then start moving the trimming unit following the length and direction of the styling comb or small comb and make sure to hold the trimming unit horizontally and the cutting unit is not facing towards you.
