How to Trim a Soul Patch Beard

Beard Grooming – The Soul Patch Beard

A soul patch beard isn’t really a beard at all – it’s just a small patch of hair underneath the centre of your lower lip. With the All Purpose Gillette STYLER, you can achieve this look.

The Soul Patch Beard Look

There are countless facial hair styles, but this doesn’t mean that trimming a soul patch beard will be complicated. Here’s a simple set of steps to get you on your way to the popular soul patch 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 (2mm, 4mm, 6mm) for you to choose from.

Step 2: Trim Your Facial Hair

Even out your beard hair length with the trimmer.

Step 3: Define Your Beard Shape

Remove your trimmer’s comb attachment and trim your beard to define the Soul Patch Beard shape. Trimming hairs before shaving can help reduce tug and pull while shaving, and it can help prevent clogged blades.

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 the parts of your face that you want to shave completely bare—the non-soul patch parts—with a shave gel. 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 with STYLER.

Step 7: Rinse Your Blades Often

Rinsing the blades often throughout your shave helps to prevent the 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 soul patch shape and achieve clean edges.

Step 9: Rinse, Towel, and Moisturise

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 Soul Patch beard style!

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