Keep your trimmer and its accessories organised: Find a container that will store your trimmer as it may come with several little components as well as its charger. If you do not keep them together, this may result in losing one of the important little components.

Begin shaving. Start long and finish short. If you have a sizeable beard and want to trim it down to a respectable, but still present length, start with your number 3 guard comb. Go over your entire beard.
Switch to a lower guard. Once you’ve gone over your face and neck and have a good length, trim your neck. With a lower guard, like a 1, buzz the hair from your neck to just under your jawline.
Clean up any strays. Make sure that you get an even shave everywhere by looking in the mirror for any stray hairs. You also want to shave any areas below your neck with your 0 guard, the blades on your trimmer.
Remove the guard for shorter styles. If you want to sport a 5 o’clock shadow, shave without a guard. For a 5 o’clock shadow, simply shave your entire face and neck with the blades on your trimmer head. This will leave you with stubble.
