Now that you’ve got a base coat of beard hair ready to be shaped into stubble, it’s time to begin. Using a trimmer, or a pair of scissors and a comb, gently chop away the ends of any longer hairs. Be careful not to get too close to the skin, as you do still need some hair remaining to get the look.
Remember to go steady with the trimming - it’s much easier to take more off than it is to get it back if you trim away too much. Slow and steady is the key.
