Grow to Desired LengthLet Mother Nature do her thing and grow that beard until it’s long enough for styling. How long it takes is different for everyone.
Even Out Your Beard by Trimming with Comb AttachmentNow it’s time to trim to get that nice, even look. Control your beard’s length using one of Gillette STYLER’s three comb attachments (2mm, 4mm, 6mm). It’s best to start long using the largest comb; you can always go shorter. Make sure you even out your beard, making a few passes for consistency.
Trim BeardRemove the comb attachment and trim to define the shape you are creating. Trim the parts you’ll eventually shave away completely to a much shorter length to assist with shaving later. Trimming hairs before shaving can help reduce tug and pull while shaving, and can help prevent shaving irritation.
Check for SymmetryCheck the symmetry to make sure it’s even. Beard styles that are symmetrical tend to look better.
Apply Shaving CreamRinse your face and beard with warm water to help hydrate your hair in preparation for shaving. Then, lather up with shave gel on the parts of your face that you want to shave completely bare, including your neck and cheeks. Using a shave gel can help prevent nicks, cuts, and irritation.
ShaveAttach the razor blades cartridge onto your Gillette STYLER handle and shave with light, gentle strokes to give yourself a close shave. Any Fusion5 blade refill fits STYLER.
Shave With and Against the GrainSince facial hair tends to grow in different directions, you will almost always be shaving both with and against the grain. An advanced multi-blade razor like ProGlide Shield will help you get a comfortable shave even when trimming against the grain.
Rinse BladesRinse your blades often. Remember, don’t shave without shaving cream or over-shave the same spot, as this can cause irritation. Tapping your razor against the sink can seriously damage the precisely-engineered parts of your razor.
Edge with the Precision TrimmerAfter you’ve made the major adjustments to the shape of your new beard, it’s time to take care of the finer details. You can use the Precision Trimmer on the back of the Gillette STYLER to define the lines along your cheeks and sideburns.
Rinse, Dry, Apply Moisturizer or AftershaveWash your face with cool water and pat it dry. Rub in a hydrating moisturizer to help your skin feel soft and comfortable.
Congrats!Now that you’ve got that showstopper beard, use a lightweight beard oil to help soften and keep moisture in your beard hairs. Continue with this type of routine maintenance, and your beard will look amazing for as long as you keep it.
