How to Touch Up Your Sideburns
Your sideburns are an important part of your look. Whether you're tapering, straightening or trimming them, uniformity on both sides is essential. Your Wahl trimmer is perfect for the job but your Wahl clipper can handle it, as well.
How to Trim Sideburns Step-by-Step
Spray the sideburns with water. It’s easiest to cut the sideburns if they’re damp.
Comb your sideburns so they lay flat in the direction of growth.
Using your trimmer or clipper with the blades in the closest setting, use an inverted position and gently apply to sideburn. Cut in a downward direction to reach the desired shape of sideburn tips.
Once you've trimmed your sideburns, be sure to also trim the back of your neck and around the ears.

Move the Oil Around to Lubricate the Blade
Turn the clipper on to help work the oil in.
