How to trim a beard (Cheek Line Styles)
Having the right cheek line is the most important factor when growing a full beard, as your beard style can go warily if you have a bad cheek line.
Choosing the right cheek line can help you optimize your full beard style and thereby express your masculinity and unique appearance. You must have the right knowledge to create a cheek line that highlights the density, texture, color and other characteristics of a full beard style.
It is not in copying from others that you can acquire a good cheek line, as there is no such perfect way to shape up your cheek line, excepting, to take the help of a professional barber to choose a cheek line that could be best suited for your full beard style.
How To Shape A Cheek Line For Your Beard?
Decide whether you want to have a natural cheek line or a defined one, depending upon the type of your full beard. While the natural cheek line can make your beard look softer and your face larger, a defined cheek line can give your beard an edgy, sharper and neater look.
Visualize your cheek line with the help of a trimmer guide, defining the start and the endpoints on the cheek. Let the hair on the cheek line grow naturally. The starting point is the bottom of the sideburns and the endpoint is where the line meets the side part of the mustache.
Once you have defined the cheek line, start trimming along the line and even set the trimmer guard to 0.4mm to go down to the lowest. Regular shaving above the cheek line will help you maintain the facial hair growth. Depending on your skin tone, keep your cheek clean by shaving regularly.
