If you’re comfortable with a stubble beard, maybe it’s time to take the next step and grow a full-on short beard?
A short beard hugs the face without hiding its shape, so it best suits square or oblong faces. Short beard styles are all about maintenance. Getting (and keeping) your short beard looking appropriately suave takes time and patience.
Here’s how to shape and trim a short beard:
Step 1: Grow it out
When your facial hair is at least 2 cm long, wash and dry your beard and comb it downwards.
Step 2: Shape it up
Use a beard trimmer to shape your neck and cheek lines, and clean up under your lower lip.
Step 3: Trim it down
Now trim your beard evenly to the desired length with a comb attachment (or zoom wheel, if your trimmer has one).
