Panasonic Wet and Dry Hair and Beard Trimmer – Silver
A beard trimmer is an indispensable tool for a man. With the trimmer, one can clean up that winter beard, allowing a man to look presentable. As a man, looking presentable is equivalent to gaining self-confidence. With that, here are the steps on how to use a beard trimmer:
WASH AND DRY.
Start by washing and drying the beard thoroughly. If the beard is clean, it should be easier to trim. The finished result would also look better. Don’t forget to comb afterward, ensuring that all the facial hairs are lying flat.
CHOOSE A TRIMMER.
The kind of trimmer to use varies according to the type of beard or the appearance you are aiming for. However, one trimmer that is highly recommended is the mid range ones. The said tool is more versatile and can provide a quick hair cut.
START WITH THE NECK AREA.
Trim the neck area first. Avoid getting too close to the chin though if you don’t want to appear to have double chin. In case you want to have a more defined neck line, remove the guard from your trimmer before shaving.
NEXT COMES THE SIDE.
The sideburns are the next ones you should shave. Use the beard trimmer vertically. Trim towards your jawline. After you are finished shaving this part, comb your beard again to ensure that no stray hairs were missed.
PAY ATTENTION TO THE MUSTACHE.
Be extra careful when trimming the mustache. You won’t be able to cover up any mistakes made on trimming the mustache like you would with your beard. To trim the mustache, make sure to use a higher guard comb.
Beard trimmers keep unwanted facial hair away. Occasionally, your hair trimmer may become dull and not cut really well. To fix this, you simply clean the beard trimmer. Here are some steps to take for cleaning the beard trimmer.
PLACE A WASTEBASKET.
Make sure to place a waste basket below you to catch the clippings to avoid a mess. The more facial hair you’ll shave, the messier it will be if you don’t have a waste basket prepared. Even with the waste basket, you might have stray clippings strewn on the floor. For that, use a damp towel to pick them up.
CLEANING YOUR GUARD.
Remove the trimmer’s guards. Most guards are made of plastic material so you can use soap and water to rinse them off. Use warm water to rinse off the hair.
CLEAN THE TRIMMER.
Start by removing the clipper head from the handle. Usually, a brush comes along with the beard trimmer. Use that to brush away hair that has caked on the trimmer. Disconnect the blade head and use cotton swabs to clean in between the blades. These are usually the small spaces that the brush can’t reach. Once cleaned properly, connect the blade head back to the clipper. Run it for a bit to shake the loose hair off. Avoid running a trimmer under the water though, unless it is waterproof.
OIL THE TRIMMER.
Oiling the trimmer is a good maintenance habit. If you have oiled it before shaving, then there is no need to oil it afterward. If not, then you should make it a habit to oil the trimmer after you have shaved.
