A Unibrow Has No Place on Your Face
Trim those unsightly nose hairs to polish your look. Turn the unit on and insert the trimmer head into your nostril. Gently move the head in and out without inserting it more than ¼ inch. Nose hair helps keep particles and pollutants away, so trim only those pesky strands that grow at the nostril's opening.
Protruding ear hair can roughen your polished finish. You don't need to dig deep to trim the outliers; keep some ear hair for protection from the elements. Turn the unit on and insert the trimmer head no more than ¼ inch into your outer ear canal. Gently move the head around the edges to remove hairs that extend beyond your outer ear.
If you want to civilize your eyebrows, a personal trimmer is a solid solution. Use your trimmer's short comb attachment to evenly groom your brow's bushiness and length. To refine the brow shape, remove the comb attachment and carefully apply the trimmer blade to the specific areas where you want to eliminate hair. Consider the space between your brows – perhaps that "uni-brow" doesn't project the look you like.
Neckline and Sideburns
You can extend time between haircuts with a personal trimmer. Clean up your sideburns and neckline by holding the trimmer blade against your skin at the bottom edges of your haircut. Move the blade downward to remove hair that lies outside your preferred hairline. This resurrects the haircut's original boundaries to sharpen your look.
To shape and define the border between your bare skin and beard/mustache, apply the trimmer blade directly around the hair's edge to remove outlying strands. A comb attachment will evenly cut the length of your facial hair and can help contour the shape while reducing the fuzzy look of uneven growth. Move the comb in the direction of your hair's growth while working through your beard or mustache.
A personal trimmer can help shape, shorten or remove that pelt below the neck. Use comb attachments to evenly shorten your hair or create transitions to less hirsute areas. If you'd like to be completely hairless, apply the blade directly without the comb attachment. Be sure to work carefully as you groom sensitive areas; start with longer comb attachments and slowly work your way to the length and placement you want.
- Place the trimmer at a slight right angle to your skin and trim in the direction of hair growth.
- Be careful not to apply excess pressure to the blade. This may damage the blade and can injure or irritate your skin.
- Pull your skin gently but firmly with one hand while trimming. This ensures the closest possible shave.
