Make it Yours
Shave or closely trim your cheeks, chin, and neck, while leaving the mustache and Soul Patch beneath the lower lip untouched.
With your Wahl® trimmer, square off the mustache, allowing it to extend a half-inch to an inch beyond the corners of the mouth. Keep the ends of the mustache a bit longer for a downward finish.
Using your trimmer, shape the whiskers beneath your lower lip into a square or rectangle that extends approximately one inch towards the chin.
