Trimming with and without Guide Combs

When it comes to beards, it is often a thin line – both figuratively and literally – between looking stylish or sloppy. Wahl’s line of trimmers make it easy to stay on the right side of that line!

Make it Yours

  • 1

    Before trimming a thick beard, comb it against the direction it grows so all the hairs are facing the same direction.

  • 2

    Use trimmer guide combs to achieve a desired length.

  • 3

    Remember, cutting against the grain cuts more hair; cutting with the grain cuts less hair. Longer beards should be trimmed in the direction of hair growth. Shorter styles can be trimmed in either direction.

    For detailing and cleaning up stray hairs, use your trimmer without a guide comb.
