Trimming your beard doesn’t have to be a mission

, some people may recommend only having this done professionally.  But if you're going to trim your beard yourself, you'll need the right tools.

Scissors

If you decide to trim with scissors, consider buying a pair of professional barber's scissors. Comb through the beard and cut the hair on the outside of the comb. It will take some practice to perfect this technique. It is better to err on the side of not cutting enough rather than cutting too much.

Trimmers

Consider a rechargeable cordless one.  Do not trim a wet beard. Wet hair is longer. When it dries you may find you've trimmed too much. To trim your mustache, first comb it straight down. Then use either the beard trimmer Start in the middle and trim first towards one side of the mouth, then towards the other. Remove stray hairs with a trim razor. Plucking them is not recommended.
