Do you sometimes invest in a really good trimmer only to realise you don’t make the best use of it? That is such a waste of money! If you have a trimmer with great features, it is only fair to take advantage of these features. Some people, in spite of having a great quality trimmer, don’t know how to use it effectively. The truth is, even the simplest of the trimmers are capable of doing a great job if only you knew how to handle it.
Here, we are not going to teach you about selecting the right trimmer, instead we aim at teaching you to use your present trimmer more effectively.
#1 Warm up before you start
Don’t straight away use a blade on your beard, instead warm up your face for this action. By warm up, we mean to get rid of all the dirt that may be tangled in your beard. For this purpose, make use of beard shampoos. They get the job done wonderfully well. After this process, carefully use the towel and dry your face.
This is another way of preparing your beard before you get started. Use a nice comb and untangle every hair possible. Combining is especially useful for those with thicker hair. While doing this, make sure every strand of hair is combed in the same direction. This, in turn, makes the trimming process way smoother.
#3 Effective side burn trimming
People often make the mistake of using their ears as a level which doesn’t work all the time as some people have unevenly shaped ears. Due to this reason, the end result can look disastrous. In order to save yourself from the trouble and have an effective side burn trimming, it is best to use a mirror so that you can work until you feel a sense of evenness.
#4 Neck area
Neck is completely different from the face and requires different trimming approach. It is highly recommended you take someone else’s help to find the line before you get started. Neck may not sound as important as other areas, but it is still important to get a neat and tidy result.
#5 A great finishing
A successful trimming cannot happen if you end up shedding the hair on your food. Hence it is necessary to thoroughly wash and rinse your face in order to get rid of all the loose hairs. Some people may find it time-consuming, but it would be great if you could do the rinsing along with a beard oil or wax.
All in all, don’t use a trimmer simply for the sake of trimming. Try to learn some tricks and techniques that will help you work effectively. When you buy a trimmer, get to know it potential and capabilities. Trimmer is not a magic wand which does the job on its own – you have to put in some effort to turn its effectivity into a fruitful result. Every area requires different sort of trimming, hence learn and do it accordingly.
