  • What is that high performance (gold colored?) trimmer you're using? That thing really takes care of business.

  • Your previous beard was as long as my beard a couple months back. I shaved it completely, and man I personally felt I look so much better with a beard. So now I'm growing it again, and I won't shave it.

  • Don't use shaver, instead use blade.... Shaver will spoil your skin.. You will observe tiny pimples type skin..

  • Perfectionist problem: When you try to make a perfect line and end up cutting everything.

  • I let my barber do it

  • I have no beard on my neck at all it's kinda annoying I think a little bit looks good

  • Which beard?

  • I really wanted to see more technique, unfortunately, you fast forwarded through the part that should have been close up and slower.

  • Whats the reason for not using any beard oil in the first few weeks of growth? I go clean shaven maybe twice a year and I use oil everyday regardless of length

  • What name of electrical shaver that is he using?

  • Excellent video for first time beardman. I'm 60 days into my first at 53! Was getting ready to use the trimmers and take it all down a few notches and decided to see how other men trim up. Thanks for taking the time to make a video for a new like me lol.

  • Great video! Got a question about the trimmer. What brand do you recommend if you are looking for a higher quality one? (The price doesn't matter) Thanks!

  • You looks like Don Jr.. Lol

  • Can you post a link for products you used

  • As woman who isn't planning on growing a beard any time soon, I thoroughly enjoyed this.

    • Women just can't let men have their own thing can they? Gotta but in and get attention. Just leave beards for men ok?

  • He’s a great barber for sure But naturally he would of never given himself the top line because it doesn’t look natural on him Just doing it for educational purposes

  • I use 90% alcohol as aftershave.. Guess its not recomended?

  • The gold trimmer he is using is a BaBylissPRO outlining trimmer. $175 on Amazon. I just want a shave man come on lol.
