Facial hair styles: the short boxed beard

Beard grooming – the short boxed beard

A short boxed beard is similar to a full beard, but has thin, neatly trimmed sides. With the All Purpose Gillette STYLER, you can achieve this look.

The short boxed beard look

There are countless facial hair styles, but this doesn’t mean that trimming a beard will be complicated. Here’s a simple set of steps to get you on your way to the popular short boxed beard style:

STEP 1: Select a fixed-length comb for trimming

The right comb length on your trimmer can help you style your look. The All Purpose Gillette STYLER comes with three comb attachments (2 mm, 4 mm, 6 mm) for you to choose from.

STEP 2: Trim your facial hair

Even out your beard hair length with the trimmer. Trimming hairs before shaving can help reduce tug and pull while shaving, and it can help prevent clogged blades.

STEP 3: Define your beard shape

Remove your trimmer’s comb attachment and trim your beard to define the Short Boxed Beard shape. For the best style results, keep the hair shorter on your neck and cheeks.

STEP 4: Check for symmetry as you go

But be careful not to trim too much off in an effort to look even.

STEP 5: Prep your face

Rinse your face with warm water to help hydrate your hair in preparation for shaving. Then, lather up with shave gel on the parts of your face that you want to shave completely bare, including your neck and cheeks. Using a shave gel can help prevent nicks, cuts, and irritation.

STEP 6: Shave with light, gentle strokes

Attach the razor blades attachment onto your Gillette STYLER handle and shave with light, gentle strokes to give yourself a close shave. Any Fusion5 blade refill fits the STYLER.

STEP 7: Rinse your blades often

Rinsing the blades often throughout your shave helps to prevent buildup of hairs and shaving cream on the blade edges and cartridge; this helps keep your razor performing at its best.

STEP 8: Edge with the precision trimmer

On the back of all Fusion5 razors is a precision blade; use this to help define the short boxed shape and achieve clean edges.

STEP 9: Rinse, towel, and moisturize

Rinse off your face with cool water. Towel off, and then apply a hydrating aftershave lotion or balm to help soothe your skin.

You have just mastered the Short Boxed beard style!

With Gillette razors and trimmers, your personal grooming possibilities are endless.
