How do I change the length settings of my Philips Groomer?
If your groomer comes with multiple click-on combs, you can use these to get the desired hair length. The numbers on the combs indicate the length of the remaining hair after trimming. Simply click-on the appropriate comb onto the appliance and start grooming.
In case you have a device with adjustable cutting element, check the setting of the adjustable cutting element before attaching the comb, to make sure you are setting the right length setting.
Each number on the dial represents the remaining length of hair in millimeters after trimming your beard or hair.
Some models have two rows of numbers located on the device's body. Use the top row as a guide to trim shorter lengths and the bottom to trim longer lengths. Ensure you attach the compatible comb for your desired length settings.

Trimming without a comb
The cutting element is the primary unit of your Philips Groomer. It has short, sharp edges to give you a fast and clean trim.
Use the trimmer without the trimming comb to trim hair close to the skin (to a length of approximately 0.5 mm) or contour your neckline or sideburns by holding it at a 90-degree angle to your skin.
When trimming without the comb attached, we advise that you:
- Be careful with the edges of cutting teeth.
- Note that the cutting unit will remove every hair it touches.
- Move the groomer against the direction of hair growth with well-controlled movements and gentle pressure applied.
