USER MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS

TAKING CARE OF YOUR TRIMMER

OILING THE BLADES

About once a month you should oil the trimmer blades. It is best to do this over a piece of newspaper. Turn the trimmer on and hold it so that the blades are pointed downward. Spread a few drops of oil across the blades, then turn the trimmer off and wipe away the excess oil with a soft cloth.

Be careful not to use too much oil and don’t oil your trimmer more than necessary, as this could damage the motor. (Never attempt to oil the motor bearing, as it is permanently lubricated.) After oiling the blades, return the trimmer to storage. KEEP OIL OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.

BLADE CARE

Because the trimmer blades are precision-made for a very special use, they should always be handled with care. Each time you finish using the trimmer, take a cleaning brush and brush away any loose hair that has collected in the blades. Then store the trimmer to protect the blades until the next use.

Be especially careful when changing or adjusting the blades. When you have your trimmer serviced, be sure that both blades are sharpened or replaced at the same time.

To promote the long life of the trimmer, use it only for the purpose intended by the manufacturer – to trim your beard and mustache.

GROWING A BEARD AND MUSTACHE

There are three key factors that will determine which beard or mustache style is best for you:

  1. The shape and dimensions of your face.
  2. The natural growth of your beard/mustache.
  3. The thickness of your beard/mustache. If you are unsure about the type of beard or mustache that would most suit your face, speak with a professional hairstylist and ask for an opinion on what style would be best. Once your beard or mustache has been styled, it is essential that you maintain its appearance. To do this, use your trimmer to trim your beard/mustache weekly.

For the best trimming results, your beard should be slightly damp (NOT WET) when using your trimmer. This will prevent the trimmer from removing more hair than desired.

TYPES OF BEARDS/MUSTACHES

TYPES OF BEARDS

GETTING STARTED

OUTLINING YOUR BEARD

  1. It is always best to begin with a clean, slightly damp beard.
  2. After you have combed through your beard in the direction it grows naturally, you will want to outline the desired shape, beginning under your jawline.
  3. OUTLINING YOUR BEARDBegin defining your beard’s shape under your chin and work upward on each side of your face toward your ears. Then define the upper outline of your beard across your cheeks, past your sideburns, and toward your hairline.

TRIMMING YOUR BEARD

  1. The trimmer includes a 6-position comb for use with the hair trimming blade (4–18mm) which provides lengths of 4/25″ (shortest) to 7/10″ (longest).
  2. TRIMMING YOUR BEARD Figure 1To use the 6-position comb, slide the unit over the trimmer blade and snap it down into position. At first, until you become familiar with the adjustments, use the longest trim setting. (You can always go back and make your beard a little shorter.)
  3. Begin trimming your beard using smooth, even strokes. Start with your sideburns and work downward toward your chin. (Never attempt to trim against the natural growth of your beard because the hair will be cut too short.)
  4. TRIMMING YOUR BEARD Figure 2If you decide you want a closer trim, you can now adjust the 6-position comb attachment to a shorter setting (such as 4/25″ or 6/25″) and go over your beard again until you achieve the desired length.

BLENDING THE JAWLINE

  1. The three jawline comb attachments will help you to achieve a neat, finished trim under your chin. To use one of the attachment combs, press it down over the trimmer blades until it clicks into position.
  2. Hold the trimmer in an upright position and begin trimming under your jawline, using short, even strokes.
  3. After your beard is blended, turn off the trimmer and remove the attachment comb by gently pulling up on tab.

TRIMMING YOUR MUSTACHE

  1. TRIMMING YOUR MUSTACHEFor best results, start with a clean, slightly damp mustache.
  2. Comb through your mustache in the direction it grows.
  3. Place the 6-position comb over the facial hair blade and snap it into position. It is a good idea to start with the longest trim setting adjustment. (You can always go back and cut your mustache more closely with a shorter setting.)

ALWAYS TRIM YOUR MUSTACHE FROM THE TOP DOWN

ALWAYS TRIM YOUR MUSTACHE FROM THE TOP DOWN4. After your mustache has been trimmed to the desired length, remove the 6-position comb and, using the blades only, define the outline of the bottom of your mustache.

NOSE & EAR TRIMMER

For easy, safe grooming of long nose and ear hairs, attach the nose/ear trimmer and hold unit to areas that need trimming. Avoid inserting the trimmer more than ¼” to ensure safe trimming.

    • Press and snap the trimmer head onto the body as shown in Fig. 2
  4. Detaching the nose & ear trimmer:
    • Hold the trimmer as shown in Fig. 3 with the thumb pressing the top front part of the trimmer head and snap it off.
