To this gloriously tapered, neat and shapely example of facial hair perfection...Shoreditch Barber Aaron has obliged in offering his helpful wisdom on approaching a beard re-shape below... It depends entirely on the shape you’re looking for. Using mini trimmers (I recommend Wahl); you can cut around the lip, under your neck line and on your cheeks if you want a straight line. You can under-cut the lip by 1-2 mm from the corner of your mouth, and in terms of the throat area, you can use your Adam’s apple as a guiding point and then follow the jaw line around. Whether you’re looking to keep a natural neck line or shave in to it is something you would ideally want to leave for your barber to deal with. For a slimmer profile on the sides, begin to taper from the bottom of your side hairline. Leave the chin length as it is and tidy up the edges and sides, tapering down the jawline. Remember before trimming to comb all the hair out first. With a small amount of product (Beard Moisturiser ideally), Kent Combs work through facial hair well. Targeting just the straying hairs will avoid any mishaps, avoiding getting too carried away with the clippers and butchering your beard. When you arrive at Murdock for a re-shape appointment, you have the opportunity to discuss in detail with your barber about where you are looking to go with your beard in terms of shape and style. This advice should certainly see your beard looking maintained and healthy in the meantime.
