Beard Styles to Suit Your Face
When it is about facial hair styles, having a different shaped or different sized face and maintaining your facial hair according to it does matter. You can follow these simple instructions to know what beard style suits your face shape the most.
How to Trim Your Beard:
Comb it out: Get all of your hairs settled in one direction. Comb everywhere, including the mustache and bottom.
Trim the mustache properly: Comb all hairs to the side first, and clip on desired setting. Then comb down over the lip and remove the guard, to trim anything that hangs over onto the lip.
Use clippers for an even cut: If you want to maintain the length showcased here (half an inch), try a number 4 setting. If you aren't sure, just start with a bigger clip and work your way down. Increase this size as your beard continues to grow out.
Use scissors for detailing: Clean up strays and give yourself a more natural finish.
Finish with a beard oil or beard moisturizer: These will keep your hairs healthy and prevent them from drying and itching.
Fade the neck and cheeks: Graduate to smaller clipper settings (starting two sizes lower) as you move outward. Try this tutorial for trimming and fading your beard.

Additional Beard Trimming Tips:
Trim your beard when it's dry: You'll get a better sense of how it will look.
Invest in a solid pair of clippers: They will last much longer and are far more durable.
Don't assume all guards are the same length: Like with clothing, every brand's measurements are slightly different. Always test on a higher guard before settling into your preferred length. Generally, though, a 4 guard is half an inch.
When you trim the underside, stretch out the skin: The neck skin can bunch together, so be sure you're grazing over the actual surface of the skin.
