If you mustache, then we recommend this simple method for trimming your mustache properly. Comb all hairs to the side first, and clip on the desired setting. Then comb down over the lip and remove the guard, to trim anything that hangs over onto the lip. This ensures an even trim and a clean-cut lip.
The Gentleman’s Cove
This video tutorial is quite insightful when it comes to shaping your beard. A woman contours, but a man shapes his beard by trimming it. In this video, you will find the best way to shape your beard to fit your facial structure.
Here’s a little trick for when it’s best to trim the beard: trim after you shower and when your beard is dry—your hair will be hydrated and easier to cut and will give you a better idea of how it will look once it’s tamed. If you trim right after your shower, you risk having a different looking trim than what you expected.
