Step Two: Choose Your Style
What beard style do you want? There are many magazines and websites where you can study all about beard and shaving if you aren’t sure what view you want to choose. You can choose a look that’s short and neat, a beard that’s longer and wilder, or something fully unique. Decide what style you want before you start trimming.

You want to start by combing the beard hairs in the direction you want them to go. Slowly and punctiliously cut long hair sticking out. If you want a shorter beard, start with longer guards and work your way up to shorter guards until you reach a length you are snug with.
Step Five: Smooth Shave
If you’ll best looking, shave your neck and stray hairs with a razor. But, you have to ensure to lather up with shaving cream to avoid nicks and cuts. Nobody wants a beard with battle scars!
