How To Use The Cut Buddy Black Out or The Cut Buddy PLUS+

Make sure your hair and/or beard is dry, clean, and free of any oils or creams before using our product. When using a trimmer, it is not recommended that you cut your hair when it is very wet or dirty. With a razor or blade, wet cuts should be done with shaving cream.

Comb out the hairs that you plan to trim. You can use any comb for this. The Cut Buddy PLUS+ edition has a built-in comb. The Cut Buddy Black Out Edition does not.

How to Hold The Cut Buddy

Grab the middle of the product with your pointer finger and thumb. Think of it as a hard pinch.

Hold the product firmly and place the desired curve that fits your natural hairline against your face.

Once the product is against your face, firmly press the product flush against your skin as if you want to bend the product. It is important that you do not shift your hand or move the product at all. The firmer you hold, the better the cut!

Trimming with The Cut Buddy

Cut exactly along the line of the product. You may need to run the trimmer a few times. Make sure all the hairs are cut before fully lifting product away from your face. Do not run the trimmer too many times on the area as you may irritate your skin.

If you are unable to get your ideal result on the first try, use the product’s other curves or combine curves together to make your desired curve. Try not to push your natural hairline back. The goal is to hold the product against your natural hairline.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you have trouble holding the product while trimming or shaving, purchase our Speed Tracer Barber Pencils to trace the lines before cutting your hair. Many of our customers find this to be easier since it frees up their hands and they can simply cut along the lines they have drawn rather than having to hold the product steady against their face.
