A lot of guys think that cutting their own sideburns is a hassle. But it’s actually not that difficult – as long as you have the right tools and know how to use them. In this article, we’ll show you how to cut your sideburns like a pro.

Here’s what you’ll need:
-A sharp pair of scissors
-A comb
-A mirror

Follow these steps to get the perfect sideburns:
1.Start with clean, dry hair. Comb your sideburns down so they’re flat against your face.
2.Use the comb to mark where you want your sideburns to end. Holding the comb at an angle, place the teeth just above the top of your ear. The goal is to create a straight line from the bottom of your sideburns to the top of your ear. For most guys, this will mean cutting off about an inch ( 2.5 cm) of hair. But it all depends on personal preference – so adjust accordingly.
3.Now it’s time to start cutting! Using small, gradual cuts, begin trimming your sideburns along the line you created with the comb. Take your time and be extra careful not to accidently cut too much off. It’s always better to err on the side of caution. If you make a mistake, you can always go back and trim more later on.
4.Once you’re finished cutting, take a step back and take a look in the mirror. Make sure both sides are even and that you’re happy with the length. If not, don’t hesitate to go back and make any necessary adjustments.
5.And that’s it! Congratulations – you’ve just successfully cut your own sideburns like a pro!

The Right Tools

Start with the right tools. If you’re planning on doing a lot of facial hair grooming, it’s worth buying a good trimmer. A quality trimmer will have multiple length settings, so you can customize your look. It’s also a good idea to get a pair of scissors and some comb to go along with your trimmer.

To get started, Wash your face and sideburns with soap and water to remove any dirt or oil. It’s also a good idea to trim after you’ve taken a shower because your hair will be softer and easier to cut.

Next, Comb your sideburns down with a comb and use the scissors to trim any long hairs that stick out above the rest.

Now, it’s time to start using the trimmer. Begin by setting the trimmer to the longest length setting. This will help prevent you from accidentally cutting your sideburns too short. Start at the base of your sideburns and slowly move the trimmer up towards your temples, following the contours of your face. As you get closer to your temples, you can start making the sideburns thinner by angling the trimmer inward towards your nose.

Once you’ve reached your temple, turn off the trimmer and take a comb to check for any stray hairs that need to be trimmed. You can also use the comb to even out the sides if they look uneven.

Finally, apply some aftershave or beard oil to help soothe your skin and give your sideburns a healthy shine.

The Right Technique

Here’s how to cut sideburns like a pro:

-Start with clean, dry hair.
-Comb your sideburns down, then up, to get an idea of how long they are.
-Decide how short you want them to be, and use a comb to mark that length.
-Using a sharp pair of scissors, snip hairs at the comb’s edge, following the contour of your head.
-Comb your sideburns down again and trim any stray hairs.

The Right Time

There’s no hard and fast rule for how often you should trim your sideburns, but a good general guideline is to do it every two to three weeks. If you have longer hair, you might be able to get away with doing it every four weeks. But if your hair is on the shorter side, you might need to do it every week or two.


Now that you know the basics of how to cut sideburns, you can experiment with different styles to find the look that works best for you. With a little practice, you’ll be able to achieve professional-looking results at home.
