How to Use
Before you begin trimming, you should gather everything you will need, so there are no interruptions.
- A quality beard comb, such as our Sandalwood double-sided comb
- Beard Sorcery Boar's hair brush
- Merlin's Beard Trim Scissors
- Beard Oil
- Potentially some Beard Balm
Ideally, your mustache should be trimmed at least once a week so that it retains its shape.
1. Wash and dry your mustache
You can’t begin painting on a dirty canvas, right? So your first step should be to wash your mustache as thoroughly as possible to get rid of any oil residue. Clean hair is easier to trim, and you will have better control over the scissors when making the cuts.
After you’re done, dry your mustache with a towel so that it’s freshly spruced up for a trim. Wet hair strands can give the illusion of being longer than they actually are, which could lead you to cut off more than you intended.
You can also use beard wash and conditioner beforehand so that the hair is soft and easy to manage.
2. Comb, comb, comb
Do not underestimate the power of combing through your mustache before your trim because it can make all the difference in the world.
Make sure that there are no tangles and straighten all the strands so that it becomes easier for you to trim.
Initially, you can use a small fine-toothed mustache comb and then follow it up with a boar bristle brush if your mustache is long enough to benefit from one.
Combing will allow you to gauge the actual length of the hair strands in your mustache. Using an anti-static, pearwood or sandalwood comb will usually lead to the best outcome.
You have the option of combing the hair strands towards the center if you want a straight finish at the bottom. For an angular cut, comb the hairs in the direction of their growth.
3. Shape your mustache one cut at a time
The first thing that you have to do is sculpt the shape of the mustache. Grip your scissors and start making small cuts along the bottom line of the mustache. It depends on your preference whether you start from the middle and work your way to the sides or vice versa.
When you’re trimming, always look as straight as possible so that you do not make any angular mistakes. If you keep a neutral and straight position it will be easier for you to achieve a straight line.
Moreover, you will be able to keep an eye on what you’re doing. If you want a straight edge at the center, you should keep the trimming scissors parallel to the lips and then follow the lip line as you snip.
On the other hand, if you want an angular mustache, it’s better that you start working from the outer edges towards the center. As you reach the center from one side, start from the other side so that they meet at the perfect angle.
Use your right hand to trim on the left side and your left hand to trim on the right side. This will help you achieve the same angle on both sides of the mustache.
4. Correct the length
Now that you’ve trimmed the extra hairs, decide upon the desired length of your mustache hairs. Use the fine-toothed comb to straighten the hair again so that you have an idea of how much to snip.
Remember that it’s always better to be cautious when trimming than to go overboard. You can trim more, but you won’t get those snipped hairs back. Well, not for a while anyway.
Use the scissors to get a clean line at the top of your mustache. If there are any overgrown hairs, trim them to their proper length.
You will find that it’s much easier to manage unruly hairs when you’re using scissors because you have the liberty of tackling each strand individually.
A common trick is to cut the top at a 45-degree angle facing your lips so that they look fuller and shapely.
One of the most important things that you should not forget about is to leave a strip of skin between the mustache and the nose. If your mustache appears to be overgrown nose hair, its attractiveness quotient will plummet.
5. Tackle the volume
The thickness of the mustache varies from person to person, but you can manage the volume according to what you wish. The scissors are flexible and can snip off excess hairs one by one instead of trying to take off too much at once.
Take your comb and straighten your mustache once again. Place the scissor at the point you want to trim the mustache.
Snip off the portion that extends beyond the comb’s teeth. You can trim the hairs underlying the mustache and bring the bulk under control.
If you have thicker and overgrown hair towards the end of your mustache, you can pull it taut and start snipping the hairs located underneath.
It’s a common problem for bearded men that the hair strands of the mustache blend into the beard. If that is the case for you, you need to separate out the mustache hairs first with the help of your hand and then go in with the scissors.
6. Clean it up
It might take you a while to end up with a mustache that has just the right length and volume you were looking for, but be patient because the result will be worth your effort. Using scissors can slow you down, but it will also ensure that you do not make any errors.
Once you feel that you have done enough and there are no more adjustments to make, you should comb the mustache one more time.
This will help you locate any hairs that you have missed when snipping. If you find any such strand, trim it to the appropriate length. Clean up the stray and loose hairs from around your mouth and face.
7. The Final Touches
Keeping your mustache healthy is important. If you want to go the extra mile, apply beard oil to your newly trimmed mustache to give it some nourishment and moisture. If you want to style it, you can then apply some glorious beard wax.
