Your face shape is always a factor when it comes to your haircut. Without a doubt, there is an optimal haircut for your face. This also applies to beards. The structure of your face can tell you what type of beard would suit you best! So, from all the types of beards, which style fits your face?

The Importance of Beard Trimming

Although the point of a beard is to grow it out, trimming is an important step of progress. It might seem simple to grow a beard but it is a tedious journey. For a successful and luscious beard, you need to be able to increase your beard length. Around 2-3 months into your beard growing journey, you will need to trim it. It seems counterproductive. Yet, trimming will allow your beard to be healthy-looking as it grows.

However, it’s not taking centimeters or inches off your beard. Just a few cuts with grooming scissors to let your beard grow evenly. Taking off split ends can increase the growing process. There are a lot of techniques that can help prevent split ends, however, trimming is the best to increase the growing process. Trimming is important, but it needs to be done properly. You need the best beard trim for the best results. And Hair Mechanix can help you!

  3. Get Prepared to Trim that Beard – Be prepared with your; towel (we know your girlfriend can’t stand those beard trimmings all over!), comb, scissors, clippers, mirror and styling products, if you have them. Check out our Grooming Products for Beards!
  4. Trim your Beard using Clippers – Make sure to use the appropriate size guard for the amount you would like to trim off. If your not sure, use the bigger guard first to make sure you do not trim too much off for your own liking.
  5. Trim your Beard using Scissors – You should probably let us do this, it takes skill in shaping and thinning the beard with scissors. But if you insist, make sure you are using a sharp pair of scissors made to cut hair like shears for barbers. Use a comb to guide you.
  6. Clean up your mess! – Remember that towel, thankful now aren’t you? You can also use newspaper on the floor. Be careful washing your clippings down the sink. It is best to throw them away so they don’t clog your sink.
