How to Shave your face

We recommend that you shave your facial hair before you wash, since the skin tends to be slightly swollen after washing. After a few days without shaving, for example during the weekend, you should trim your stubble beard with before you shave. Stretch the skin and trim your beard against the direction of beard growth. Hold the shaver at a right angle (90°) to your skin. Keep the pressure even to achieve a close and comfortable shave.

Beard Trimming and Styling

The good thing about beards is that you can experiment with new looks without risk or damage. Would you like to look more mature, more determined, more adventurous or simply a have a more unique facial hair style? A new beard trimmer may be the answer for the best beard styling.

Which beard suits the best?

The beard trimming style depends on the shape of your face. Round faces look narrower with a beard because it casts a shadow and tends to create a longish appearance. Stubble and hard lines give a face more distinction and masculinity. For oval faces you can try a goatee or a soul patch, one of those miniature beards below the lower lip. This accentuates the contour around the chin. You might also experiment with sideburns. That doesn't mean adopting the full trucker look. Simply shave the sideburns back diagonally, making sure to do so evenly on both cheeks. The beard trimming options are, in fact, innumerable!

What to do about weak beard growth?

A beard facial hair style can look very cool even for those with weaker beard growth. Just always make sure that is symmetrical. Just follow the natural contours of your face and trim every 2 to 3 days, depending on how fast the hairs grow.

Wet or dry?

Both have their merits. But when it comes to facial hair styles and beard trimming, dry is definitely the winner. Wet hairs usually cling to the body and block your view of the areas you want to style. So you're better off staying dry.
