Learn how to trim a natural moustache

Before we begin, some basic prep. Make sure your beard is at least 1 cm long so that you have something to work with. For a smoother grooming experience, you’re going to want a dry face and beard, with no shaving cream to obscure what you’re doing (this is how bad moustaches happen!).

 

It’s also important to know which of the many moustache styles you’re shooting for. When in doubt, the natural moustache compliments most.

1. Shape your moustache

Use a moustache and beard trimmer with a precision attachment to make a gentle curve under your nose. Trim the hair above your upper lip to create a clean line. Then trim the ends of your moustache outwards, from the edge of your lips.

3. Shave closely

Unless you’re going for the ‘stached stubble, give yourself a clean shave with whatever style of electric shaver or razor you prefer. If you have an issue with razor burn, remember: best not to apply too much pressure or go for too close a shave.
