How To Trim Beard And Mustache
It is not hard to learn how to trim beard and mustache, but you have to spend some time doing the job right to make your facial hair look good. There are some basic supplies you will need to trim your beard and mustache. Once you have everything ready to go, lock your bathroom door so no one disturbs you during your facial hair maintenance routine.
To trim a beard and mustache you will need:
- Shaving cream
- Grooming scissors
- Beard trimmer
- Comb or brush
- Shave around your beard and mustache before you begin trimming. Use a razor and shaving cream or an electric razor depending on your preference. Make sure that you do not accidentally shave your beard or mustache or you may have to trim them even shorter. Once you finish shaving, wipe off the shaving cream if you used any, or apply after shave if you used an electric razor. Also dry off your facial hair with a towel to remove any hidden water before you trim your beard and mustache.
- To trim your bread and mustache, stand in front of the mirror with a pair of scissors. Use the scissors to trim longer facial hairs to the length that you want. This will take you some time so be patient and do a good job. Once you finish, use a comb or bush on your facial hair depending on how long it is. If you need to trim your beard and mustache a bit more, use a trimmer or razor.
- If you are using a beard trimmer, put it on the appropriate setting. This can be tricky and will take some practice to do the job right. Move the trimmer along your beard and mustache until you have your facial hair at the length you want. Once you finish, use the scissors to get any hair that is still too long.
- You can use a regular razor without shaving cream to trim your beard and mustache. Simply shave over your beard and mustache like you normally would when you are clean shaven, but do not press down as hard on the razor. Start on one side of your face and gently trim your beard with the razor. Do the other side of your face, then trim your chin and under your lower lip. To finish the job, trim your mustache. Use a comb or brush to get rid of the excess hair, then step back and see how your facial hair looks. Use the scissors to get any hairs that you miss with the razor.
