How do I ask my barber to fade my beard?

How often should I go to the barber for my beard?
We advise visiting your barber every 1-2 weeks to get this cut. Some clients even visit us twice a week to get that skin-fade looking as sharp as possible for both the working week and the weekend. If you have a short grade on top i.e. a grade 1,2,3 – again every 1-2 weeks will keep it looking clean.

Should you straighten your beard before trimming?
Essentially, you want your beard in its natural state before trimming. It’s the same with your beard: if it’s wet or otherwise straightened and elongated, you’ll find that you end up taking off way too much when it dries and shrinks up into its normal shape.
Is it better to trim your beard wet or dry?
When your beard hairs are wet they straighten out significantly and will appear longer than they are when they’re dry. If you trim wet, when it dries it will shrink up and your beard will be uneven. Because of this, it is critical you properly dry your beard fully before considering any sort of trim.
Is it better to trim beard before or after shower?
Trim after you shower and when your beard is dry—your hair will be hydrated and easier to cut, and will give you a better idea of how it will look once it’s tamed. This can detangle knots and set your beard up for optimal grooming.
What beard length is best?
Let your beard continue to grow for at least two years without taking any length off of it. You’re looking at a solid 12-inch, or foot-long beard when the two years are up. Generally, a beard will never grow longer than it is at six years worth of full growth.
Should I shave my neck when growing a beard?
If your beard doesn’t cover your neck, shaving your neckline is still worth it. Doesn’t mean you have to, by any means. You might prefer the shape of your beard without a shaved neckline.
How much does beard trimming cost?
The general barbers are all around barbers that don’t specialize in any one area and are more a “Jack of all Trades.” They will usually do a decent job and charge you about half of their hair cutting costs. That translates to about $10 – $30.
Is it bad to go to the barber every week?
It’s OK to get a haircut every week if you shave your head or sport a buzz cut. Anything super short can survive being regularly maintained once a week. Since your hair only grows a tiny fraction of an inch in a week, you probably won’t have much to cut off if you get cuts this often.
How long should you let your beard grow before trimming it?
