10 Beard Trimming Tips: How to Groom Your Beard

Facial hair is back, which means it’s time to fix up your beard! We have a few beard trimming tips to keep you on-trend. So get out your comb and beard oil and read on how to trim your beard the right way!

There’s always been an art to properly defining your facial hair. However, with stubble and beards making a comeback, proper trimming has never been more important! It might seem easy to manage your beard style, but some beard trimming tips can make a difference. No matter the face shape, we have a few ways you can achieve your best beard!

How do you trim a beard and mustache?

A trim might seem easy enough, but the right kind of cut can be more difficult to get right. For the best beard trimming guide, here’s the scoop:

  • Keep It Clean– It goes without saying that a clean beard is going to be a whole lot easier to trim. Before you get started, wash with a beard shampoo along your jawline and finish up with a moisturizing conditioner.
  • Bring on the Brush– Once your beard has dried, use a brush to comb your hair against the grain so that it sticks out. This will help you acquire a balanced and even look when it comes to your beard trimming. Share this great tip for beard grooming with others on a family app!
  • Get the Clippers– Once you’re ready for trimming, you can spring for the style that works for you. However, you may need to use clippers to get your ideal hair length. Keep in mind that it’s more flattering to leave your hair longer around the chin and shorter along the face.
  • Navigate the Neckline– How long you want your beard is up to preference, but the Adam’s apple can be a good place to stop. Keep in mind that you’re aiming for a ‘U’ shape, so you may need practice to trim it right!
  • Don’t Forget to Moisturize– Much like your skin, an important part of beard grooming and hair health is keeping it moisturized. Once you’ve washed, combed and clipped your facial hair, add some beard oil and do another comb-through. It might seem easy to skip this step but oil’s in a beard trimming kit for a reason!
