How to Fade Your Beard Step-by-Step
Grab your favorite guide comb, the recommended one is the #3 (3/16") guide comb. Trim the entire beard.
Clean your lower neck by switching to a #1 (1/16") and trimming from two inches below your jaw to your Adam’s apple.
To fade it further you can switch to a #2 (1/8") guide comb and trim the remaining area, blending the two previously cut areas.
