Erika Vera of The New York Barbershop’s barbering tutorial demonstrates a full beard outline and features pointers on perimeter outlines, clipper guard attachments, forehand and backhand techniques and product application. 

The final result is a seamless fade from the longer lengths in the beard to the short fade in the haircut providing a consummate balance between outline and interior shape enhancing the contours of the face for a bespoke and total grooming service.
