Hello, my name is Mr. Bee, I'm the head barber at Frank's Chop Shop located in the Lower East Side of New York City. And today, we're going to be discussing how to trim a beard to make the face look thinner. It should be noted before any face prep, it's always a good idea to use a nice face wash. And Dove Men Plus has just come out with a good hydrate that is really good to prep the skin. My friend, Josh here has a nice beard. And the idea with any beard that should try to elongate the face, is essentially keeping the bottom fuller. So, from where the cheek bone, down to the jaw starts, you're going to want to keep that fuller. From the ear lobe, all the way up to the side burn, is going to be cut lighter. And I'm going to show you how we basically can achieve that. So, any time that you're doing a beard trim, you have to invest in a nice electric clipper. Electric clippers come with attachments that cut hairs to various degrees. We're going to use a number one attachment and start from the bottom of the ear to the side burn going up as such. You can already see it's made it lighter. And we're going to go anywhere below the ear lobe, down, he already has it nice and full. So, just keep going from the ear lobe, up, both sides. You can take that all the way to the corner of the mouth. Once you finish that, you're going to go simply with the grain. We're just going against the grain, going with the grain, is going with the direction of the facial hair goes in. You can take that all the way down the jawline, stopping at the corners of the mouth. Same thing on the other side. Once that's done, you're going to want to take off your attachment and again, go with the grain of the hair. The key part is not touching the chin area, that's going to create a point which is going to give the impression of a longer face. So, once again, that is effectively the best way to achieve making a face look thinner by trimming your beard. My name is Mr. Bee, I'm the head barber at Frank's Chop Shop located in the Lower East Side of New York City.
