Step By Step Instructions
Step 1: Choose the Ideal Attachment Size
Unlike shaving a beard, trimming too much of your brows may not be ideal for some people. For most men, the appearance of no brows isn’t one they would appreciate the most. So, it is extremely crucial to choose the right trimmer attachment size for your eyebrows. The most appropriate size for men should be 4 and above. Sizes 6, 7, or 8 great choices for most men.
Step 2: Prep Your Brows for Trimming
You need to prep your brows for trimming. There are two things you need to do, clean and groom the brows. Use a face cleanser or an exfoliator to get rid of dead skin cells and excess natural oil. Removing these two allows for easier and quicker trimming.
Groom your brows using a detailing comb of a different color. Use the fine teeth of the comb to see the contrast and look at what you are working with. Combing reveals hairs that are longer than the rest. The grooming should be in the direction of brow growth.

Attach the eyebrow trimmer attachment to the blade until it clicks. Most attachments come with two sides of different sizes (say 4 mm and 2 mm). Once you pick the length you would like to trim and secure the trimmer attachment, align the attachment close to the skin and brow. Then move slowly from the end to the beginning of your brow.
For hair underneath your eyebrow, move from the outer corner to the inner corner. For hair above your brow, move the trimmer in a vertical downward motion. For a closer trim, you have to remove the eyebrow trimmer attachment.
Stop every few seconds and comb the brow to avoid trimming the hairs too short.
How to Fix Eyebrow Trimming Problems
Sometimes you may be faced with a few eyebrows trimming problems that need fixing like:
Poor trimming techniques may leave you with sparse or thinning eyebrows. The easiest and most recommended fix for this problem is to fill in the thinning brows. This will help the eyebrows appear fuller and thicker. You can use eyebrow powder to create a more natural look.
Some people have wavy or curly brows (even when they are trimmed to a similar length). In this case, you can use a brow grooming gel to tame the eyebrows. Alternatively, you can coat a small brush with hair spray and use it to groom the curly brows.
Lack of Arch
If you don’t have a natural arch, you can easily make one. Use tweezers to pluck hairs that cover the arch area. You need a fog-free shaving mirror to make the plucking more precise. Pluck in the direction of growth to reduce the pain.
As you can see it is easy to learn how to use eyebrow trimmer attachment. You just need to buy an eyebrow trimmer kit that comes with all the important attachments. The attachment size is extremely important because it determines the length your brows will have when you are done trimming.
