|The Philips Multigroom Series 1000 (Model MG1100) for Precise Edges and Contours.|
Now this is the new Philips Multigroom Series 1000 (Model MG1100) made specifically for Precise Edges and Contours. I was excited to have one of these because as you may have figured out by now, my hispanic lineage does come with extra baggage. Aside from being the curly guy all my life, I've been blessed extremely hairy from a scale of 1 to gorilla. That goes the same with my facial hair. I can grow a good short beard in a few days. If I decide to let it grow out it'll take me a week or two to have a full one but looked quite haggard because of stubble growth everywhere. I have to take my precious time after a bath to cut along the edges, check on the mirror and see if I at least have it all precisely cut. Somehow, it's like trial and error, unless I go to bespoke barber shops and have them do it for me. Now that just costs a fortune to do on a regular basis and having a Philips Multigroom Series 1000 was just perfect because I want to do it on my own.
Now I use two electric shavers currently, one at home (the Carrera which I got from the US), and the other for travel (the Korean Shengfa). I also use the 5 blade manual ones just for fun. Both these shavers won't actually be able to help me if I'm already working on the part where I have to sculpt the inner section of my beard. It just won't fit. That goes the same with the hair growing on my sideburns too. Having a precision shaver does the trick because as you can see, these two would be too big in that place in between your lips and chin. The only thing you would be able to do in that case is to totally take it out, but I like my beard too much because if you frame my face with the right amount of hair, you would look thinner and make your face look a little longer. (oh yes I know about every camera trick there is in the book!) I guess I learned a lot from shooting models and portraits and applied it on myself.
The Philips Multigroom Series 1000 (Model MG1100) is packed really neat in one box. It's got the actual unit, a manual/product information sheet, 4 attachments, a mini brush to clean the shaved hair and one penlight battery for free.
The motor is pretty strong, I could tell how it works with the attachments and it's pretty easy to figure out even without reading the manual. Although, I highly recommend you do that so you know what part goes where. The thing is, this Philips Multigroom Series 1000 (Model MG1100) is one of the easiest to put together. You just have to look at the arrows if you're attaching the head or the battery on the bottom, then a little twist to lock it up. I couldn't believe it's just powered by 1 battery because as I said, it seems powerful enough to do the job.
I used the Large attachment first so I could take out the longer strands of hair on my face so I could thin it out. Then after that, I used the Small attachment to cut it even more closer to the face. After that, I used the one with the metal holes on it so I could do precise shaving. Make sure you don't have a wet face while doing this as it'll make the job harder. The damp, toweled, and thoroughly moisturized face would do.
Here's a demo via a damn good looking guinea pig, me!
To clean it up, use the small brush that came with your kit and lift the cover of your fine shaver attachment. Make sure you clean it all up before you put it back in the box.
