A trimmer is a best balding clipper which is usually used by men to shape and trim their beards.
A beard trimmer can also be used to trim eyebrows as beard hair and eyebrow hair are similar to one another. Maintaining your eyebrows is an essential part of a gentlemen look. No one likes bushy eyebrows whether a man or a woman. I have a complete guide about how to trim men’s eyebrows with trimmer.
Preparing Eyebrows before Trimming:
It is important to note that your eyebrows are not wet before trimming. Keep them totally dry before the procedure. If needed, you can exfoliate the skin before trimming. Though it is not a necessary step.
Exfoliating (if needed):
Exfoliating the skin will prevent pimples and acne from appearing after trimming. Use a scrub for this purpose. You can also make a homemade scrub by combining sugar, honey, olive oil and lemon juice if you want.
Before trimming, use the comb provided to comb your eyebrow’s hair outwards.
Understanding the settings of your trimmer is essential to achieve a desired look for your eyebrows. The settings also depend upon the thickness of your hair and bushiness of your eyebrows. The highest setting will give you a bushy look and remove less hair. The lowest setting is for precise look. If you have thick hair in large quantity, it is suggested to use the highest setting first to get rid of some thickness and then use the lowest setting to be precise with your eyebrows.
Right Way to Trim:
Keep your trimmer in contact with your hair all the time or your eyebrows will be uneven. Move your trimmer against the direction of your hair growth which usually is from your temple to the centre of your forehead. If you don’t do this your hair will break halfway through and small dense hair will peek through which can make it look worse than before. If the desired number of hairs have not been removed yet, go over your eyebrows again. (more…)
