First off, this isn't about trimming techniques or Dos and Don'ts. I use a similar electric trimmer to the one the OP posted in the following question: What to do if your shaver broke halfway through shaving? I also already follow the rules mentioned in the top-answer of the above question.
I don't have a beard, and I don't shave close. That's why I used the term facial hair. I have a certain facial hair style I want to accomplish every time I trim my facial hair again.
So I actually have two questions:
- How do I trim my facial hair symmetrically?
- How do I achieve the same facial hair style every time I trim?
To trim symmetrically I just use my good eye and move my head from left to right and trim here and there, until I find it symmetrically.
If my last trimming-session isn't that long ago, I can still see where the hair is shorter; I see the trimming-lines and try to follow them again. But if I trimmed a long time ago, I can't recognize where I trimmed last time.
I thought about something like a template. But what would that be made of and where could it be fixed?
I hope I'm not the only one bothered by this.
