Beard Trim: Short And Scruffed

Grooming is more than creating a good haircut, it’s about cleaning up ALL facial hair. And once you master men’s grooming services, you’ll not only establish a loyal list of clientele, but you’ll increase your profits too! Here’s a beard trim how-to from the Esquire Barbers that will create a cool, short and scruffed look any guy will like.

    Start by combing through the beard to remove any tangles. Begin at the side of the head using the Esquire Cordless Clipper with a #4 guard and tapering the full beard down to the desired length.


    PRO TIP: To help the beard appear fuller, fade the neck and cheeks with a #4 guard. This will create a more tapered look. Then graduate using the #6 guard for fullness.

    Create an outline along the outer part of the beard with the Trimmer Detailing T-Blade attachment. Then repeat the same technique along the lower cheekbone on both sides.

    Next, use the Wide Stainless Steel Blade to shape the mustache. Invert the trimmer, holding it at a 90-degree angle and begin at the top of the mustache. Create a line that follows the natural fall, then comb all hair down evenly and remove all uneven hair over the lip.

    Begin detailing the beard to finalize the look and shape. Use the Esquire Tapered Cutting Comb and the Wide Stainless Steel Blade attachment for a clipper-over-comb technique. Hold the clipper with your dominant hand and the cutting comb in the other. Lift the hair away from the skin at a 90-degree angle, and slowly begin moving the comb and clippers against the grain of the hair.

    For a visibly smooth finish, use the Esquire Foil Shaver attachment around the neck. Then, remove it and replace it with the Wide Stainless Steel Blade to edge the nape of the hairline.

    Spray the Esquire Beard Oil in the palm of your hand, emulsify and begin applying it directly to the beard. 

  • close formula

    Massage the oil into the hair thoroughly and use the comb to evenly distribute.


    PRO TIP: Incorporate this beard grooming technique into your daily routine to add success to your business. The Esquire Beard Oil will condition the beard as well as add continuous softness and shine.
