Trim or Shave: The Best Beard Grooming Methods

Clean Shave

A clean shave aims to achieve an extremely close cut that leaves your skin feeling smooth, fresh, and comfortable. It doesn’t consider facial hair or style. A clean shave is the quickest and easiest way to look well-groomed on daily basis.

Our Wahl Electric Shavers offer a close cut of 0.1mm, up to 90 minutes of cordless power and wet and dry use. Designed with modern technology, our shavers have a extremely efficient foil cutting system and precision trimmer. They provide a fast, close, and comfortable shave.

Trimming your beard focuses on shape, length and style. The aim for a perfectly groomed beard is an even length all over, a clean and precise neckline, cheekline, mustache and lipline.

There are four key steps in how to achieve a well-groomed beard:

  1. Trim all over: Start with the longest cutting length and gradually reduce it.
  2. Tidy the neckline: The perfect neckline sits just above your Adam’s apple.
  3. Shape the cheekline: For a crisp look, go for a straight or slightly rounded line.
  4. Outline the mustache and lipline: Finish the look with a clean 1mm gap above your lipline.

Wahl Beard and Stubble Trimmers will give you the look you desire with our ultimate precision cutting blades.

Shaving and Trimming

If you haven’t shaved for a while, you will want to trim the hair before. It will allow you to have a smoother shave afterwards and help prevent skin irritation and bumps.

For shaving and trimming, the perfect tool would be a Multigroomer. Wahl multigroomers come with several attachment heads including a foil shaver for close shaving and a trimmer blade with combs for additional trimming lengths.

Ultimately, deciding on whether to trim or shave your beard depends on the final look you want to achieve. Whether a trimmed beard or a clean shave, simply pick the best method of hair removal for you!
