How to Trim a Short Beard in Five Steps

While growing a beard is easy, trimming it the right way is an art

If you’re comfortable with stubble, maybe it’s time to take the next step and grow a full-on short beard? A short beard hugs the face without hiding its shape, so it best suits square or oblong faces. Short beard styles are all about maintenance. Getting (and keeping) your short beard looking appropriately suave takes time and patience. Here’s how to shape and trim a short beard:

Step 1: Grow it out

When your facial hair is at least two centimeters long, wash and dry your beard and comb it downwards.
 

Step 2: Shape it up

Use a trimmer to shape your neck and cheek lines, and clean up under your lower lip.
 

Step 3: Trim it down

 
Now trim your beard evenly to the desired length with a comb attachment (or zoom wheel, if your trimmer has one).
 

Step 4: Finishing touch

Comb your beard out, tidy up around the mustache, and check one last time for symmetry.
 

Step 5: Shave

Finally, shave your cheeks and neck for a well-maintained appearance.
 

Styling & Maintenance

Short beard styles should be trimmed every other day to stay looking sharp.
