How To Get The Best Shave

1: Sideburns
There is an easy way to keep your sideburns even: Look straight in the mirror and put the tips of your index fingers at the bottom of both sideburns. Adjust them until level and you have a trimming guide.

2: Under the Nostrils
To reach this corner, try a narrower single-blade razor or angle a multi-blade one so youíre using the top of it. Then stretch the area by curling your lip under your front teeth (think of a donkey face), and use short, even strokes.

3: Neck
The grain of your beard changes direction below your Adamís apple, so youíll need to reverse the direction of your strokes. The skin here is tender—note the red dots you get after a shave—so consider using a single-blade razor.
