Embracing a Patchy Beard at the Barbershop

—Parker Mallouf

Today at Cut and Grind stylist Sophie Sky is trimming her clients beard after cutting his hair. He wants to take it down on the sides to emphasize the mustache and goatee. He also wants to keep the pointed overall shape around the chin to really elongate the shape of his face, and compliment his new haircut.

Using a #4 guard, Sophie moves up with her trimmers to take the weight off the sides. She uses her edger to clean up the lines around the ears and cheek line. As per usual, she chooses to keep the neck and cheek line looking a bit more natural and avoids cutting any sharp lines.
