Start By Setting Your Lines

We all know that setting your lines is important for defining out the shape of your beard, but when it comes to having a short beard it is even more important.

Trim Your Beard In Sections

One of the best ways to make a short beard look great is by properly fading it.

The easiest way to achieve this is by trimming your beard in sections using the different guards on your MT-1 beard trimmer

To make sure you get a uniform look we recommend picking different landmarks on your head (the corners of your mouth, your ear lobes, the top of your ears, etc.) to divide the sections as you are trimming.

Final Thoughts
