The Groom Buddy is so easy to use. But before you start using your new tool, you

new tool comes with a small amount of charge, but the initial charge will ensure
your new tool will have optimum power performance to give you smooth fast
cutting, every time.

back of the stand. Plug the charging adaptor into a suitable mains power socket
and switch on. Ensuring your new tool is switched off, assemble the trimmer into
the stand and push the trimmer down onto the small plug to commence charging.

USING THE 30MM TRIMMING BLADE
The 30mm trimming blade has been designed for beard & moustache trimming
+ shaping, as well as trimming body hair.
The following comb guides are for use with the 30mm trimming blade:
• 5 position comb guide (3mm to 15mm) for keeping your beard in top shape, and
the;
• 3 body trimming comb guides (5mm,7mm & 10mm) for all-over trimming &
shaping of body hair.
The 30mm trimming blade can also be used without any comb guide attached to
outline, and for an even closer finish.
Using the 30mm trimming blade to outline
The 30mm trimming blade without a comb guide attached will cut roughly to a
length of 0.5 mm.
1. Do not attach a comb guide.
2. Hold the trimmer upside down with the blade facing downwards, yet flat against
the skin.
3. Move the trimmer gently downwards in small strokes around the edge of the
area you wish to outline.
4. Having defined the outline, hold the trimmer with the blades pointing upwards,
yet flat against the skin and move the trimmer upwards against the direction of
hair growth. This will trim the unwanted hair adjacent to the outline.
BE CAREFUL NOT TO APPLY EXCESS PRESSURE
TO THE BLADE, AS THIS MAY DAMAGE THE BLADE
AND CAN RESULT IN INJURY TO THE SKIN DURING
TRIMMING.

THE GROOM BUDDY / TOOL TIPS
USING THE FOIL SHAVER
PREPARING THE SKIN
Before using the foil shaver, make sure that the skin is perfectly clean and free
from grease or cream. Exfoliating the skin once or twice a week before shaving
helps to maintain healthy and fresh skin, but it also helps to:
• Prevent hairs from growing under the skin, resulting in in-grown hairs
• R emove dead skin cells and refine the texture of your skin, resulting in a
closer shave
• Prepare your skin to help it absorb skin care products.
We recommend exfoliating ideally the day before, as well as just before shaving.
This will help straighten the hair and make it easier to shave. Avoid exfoliating
just after shaving.
Having a warm shower before use will also help to soften the hair.
1. Attach the foil shaving head.
2. Switch the trimmer on by sliding the On/Off switch upwards so that the
“I”marking is visible.
3. Always keep the shaver perpendicular to the surface to be shaved.
4. Always work with both hands: stretch the skin with one hand and move the
trimmer with the other hand.
5. Slowly move the shaver, exerting light pressure. As a precaution, the
operation of the trimmer may slow down substantially if the foil shaving head
is pressed too hard against the skin.

THE GROOM BUDDY / TOOL TIPS
USING THE 7MM PRECISION BLADE
The 7mm precision blade is for the finishing touches on your stubble, beard,
sideburns & eyebrows.
1. Switch the trimmer on.
2. Gently move the blade through the area of hair you wish to trim.
3. To make it easier to define those finishing touches, flip the trimmer over so that
you can make it even easier working with the blade close to the skin.
4. The trimmer will work most efficiently when cutting through hair at its own
speed.
5. For increased trimming performance, press and hold the turbo button, this is
often necessary for thicker areas of hair.
6. Never switch the appliance off whilst in the hair.
USING THE ROTARY BLADE
The rotary blade has been designed for trimming those hard to reach places like
nose & ear hair. No nicks, cuts or pulling.
1. Attach the rotary trimming blade.
2. Switch the trimmer on.
3. Insert the trimmer into the nose or ear and gently move the trimmer in a circular
motion.
4. Always turn the trimmer on BEFORE you insert into your nostril or ear canal to
avoid painfully snagging hairs.
5. Never insert the trimmer more than 5-6mm into your nose or ears.
6. Never turn the trimmer off whilst in the nose and ears.

TRIMMER CLEANING &
MAINTENANCE
Because the trimmer blades are precision made for a very special use, they
should always be handled with care. To ensure long-lasting performance of your
trimmer, it is important to clean the blades + the comb guides after every use.
To remove the trimming blade, follow the instructions at CHANGING THE
ATTACHMENT HEADS.
1. First, take the cleaning brush and brush away any loose hairs that have
collected in the blades.
2. Rinse the trimming blades under running water. The comb guides can also be
rinsed separately.
3. After cleaning, make sure to shake off excess water and dry the head of the
trimming blades + comb guide before replacing onto the handle.
4. Do not disassemble the blades.
OILING THE BLADES
Periodically, it may be necessary to oil the blades. After cleaning, attach a
trimmer head, switch on and oil the blades using a few drops of the lubricating
oil supplied. Only use the lubricating oil supplied with the appliance as this is
specifically formulated for high speed trimmers and does not evaporate or slow
the blades.
