  • Adjust your brush size to fit your needs. 
  • Begin swiping across the stray hairs, one by one. 
  • Watch them disappear and clean up that beard!
  • Once you’re done with your beard you can take the Firm Tool over to those brows.
  • Start cleaning up those strays with one swipe at a time.
  • (You’re basically an esthetician now.)
  • You can also use the Firm Tool on moles or blemishes.
  • Tap the check mark to save your edit.
