The following are suggested trimming steps and trimmer positions. You may find different procedures work better for you. 1. Comb your beard in the direction that it grows to help reveal stray hairs that may be longer than the others. 2. Attach the 6-position trimming guide to trim and taper your beard. Begin with the guide set at a long trimming length. Trim toward your chin in smooth, overlapping strokes, following the lay of your beard. If you trim against the way your beard naturally lays, the trimmer will cut the hair much shorter than the marked length. Improved capture of trimmings by the vacuum may be achieved by working upward from the base of your beard to the top. Some experimentation will help you find the best technique to maximize your style and the trimmer¿s vacuum feature. Adjust the trimming guide to progressively shorter settings until you reach the desired length of beard. You may wish to set the trimming guide attachment to cut closer near the ear and down under the chin, changing to a longer setting toward the front of the face and point of your chin. When the trimming guide is removed, it will remain at its last length setting until you change it. Always be sure the trimming guide is locked solidly into the desired position before you start to trim. 3. To cut the outline of your beard, remove the trimming guide. Starting under your chin and working back toward your jawbone and ears, cut the outer perimeter of your beard underneath the jawbone.
