Welcome fellas! Today, we’re talking about grooming and more specifically, how I trim my beard and some mistakes I see a lot of guys make. I’ve had some sort beard in various lengths for about the last 10 years or so. I’ve had a goatee, I’ve had short stubble, I’ve had it longer and now, I guess I have what I have. I’m not afraid to mess with it and experiment with different lengths, but I always pay attention to trimming.
Here’s a few tools I use. I use a Norelco electric or the Shave Mob 6-blade razor on my neck depending on how much time I have, and I also use the Norelco on my shoulders and back, but that’s another whole manscaping video. I use this small Norelco for my nose hairs and I used to use it for manscaping, but it nicks me every time. Again, another video. I also have this Norelco vacuum trimmer for my beard and body, but since I’ve been using the Brio Beardscape for the last month or so, it’s replaced almost all of this stuff.
In full disclosure, Brio is sponsoring today’s post, but seriously, this thing is no joke. It practically does it all, especially when it comes to beard trimming and manscaping. Like I mentioned, I’ve been putting it through its paces for the last month, and I can honestly say, it’s changed the way I handle my grooming for the better and I’m so glad I have one.
So let me give you a quick overview. It’s got a crazy sharp ceramic blade that’s 4-times harder than stainless steel, and it has a built-in adjustable rake that goes from 1.9mm all the way down to 1mm. The battery life is insane and lasts longer than any of these other ones, especially my vacuum trimmer. It’s also pretty quiet and if you take a look at the video, I compare it to the Norelco trimmers I have.
I’ll trim my beard every 4-5 days or so, it kind of depends. I’m not super rigid about it but that’s about how long it takes until I can start to see some grow out. Rule #1 when cutting in your beard is don’t carry the line up too high. Find the point right above your Adams apple where your head meets your neck. That’s where your beard should end. The mistake I see all the time is guys stop the beard way under their chin at the jaw bone. Even on younger guys with good bone structure, you still have some degree of this neck fat stuff under your chin and when you look from the side, it looks unfinished.
Even for me as a pretty thin guy, unfortunately, I just wasn’t blessed with chiseled jawbone DNA. So for me, it’s even more important that I don’t cut it up too high. Watch the video for a demo on how I use it to trim my beard. If you currently use a trimmer and are looking to upgrade it, I highly recommend jumping on this deal.
