It can take hours to get your facial hair sculpted to perfection, but sometimes trimming around your cheek line gets overlooked. Not doing so can make or break a god-like beard.
If you need a quick pointer on how to get your beard looking proper, check out this fan-favorite video from the Zeus Beard YouTube Channel.
Our buddy Carver helped us out on this one. His easy-to-understand guide will teach you how to clean up the hair around your cheek line to complete that clean, dapper look.
Here’s what you need to do to trim those pesky hairs near your cheek line:
- Apply a small amount of shaving cream and dap it on your cheeks along the hair line
- Grab a safety razor — our go-to tool is our mustache and detailing safety razor by Dovo — and line up the blade with the middle of your ear and work the razor down diagonally to cut off all the short hairs
“It’s not rocket science,” Carver said. “It’s relatively simple.”
Our safety razor is made by German company Dovo, which has been around since 1906, so I think they know a thing or two about shaving. Its chrome-plated finish won’t succumb to rust and it features knurling on the handle for non-slip maneuverability.
Every razor kit comes with a genuine leather case and a 10-pack of Merkur mustache blades that will last you several months.
“Your beard is beautiful,” one YouTube commenter wrote. “Getting tips for my other half. Thank you.”
