Styling With the Aberlite Go 2
When fully charged, hold the power button for three seconds to turn the device on.
The Go 2 can be used any time during the day, or after a shower. Towel dry or blow dry your beard if you want to use the Go 2 after a shower. This is because wet hair is more susceptible to heat damage.
Also note, if you’re someone who struggles with unevenness in your beard, using the Go 2 post-shower will give you the best results.
Make sure to use the argan oil heat protectant spray (sold separately) before each use. Simply apply a couple of sprays to your palm and rub it on the surface of your beard down to your roots.
If you dry with a blow dryer: You can use a wide-tooth comb, a wooden comb, or a round brush to mold your beard into the general shape you wear. This will give you the optimal starting point for styling before using the Go 2.
If you’re on the go or don’t want to blow dry:
1. Once the Go is heated up, brush the hair on your cheeks and the corners of your beard towards the front of your face. This should take 1-3 strokes.
Tip: You can also use a downward motion for this step. However, you may notice that this can accentuate thinness and problem areas. Use the technique that works for you.
2. Next, repeat this technique — but brush upwards towards your temples.

3. While the hair is up, take a round brush or wooden comb and gently comb your beard back down. If your beard isn’t neat after this, repeat this step until you’re satisfied.
After this, you can go over steps 1-3 on the other side of your face.
Step 3 of styling your beard with the Go 2.
4. Lastly, use a downward stroke to straighten your mustache and forebeard.
The downward stroke is an excellent way to tame the front of your beard and mustache.
Experiment with different techniques. For example, you could use a round brush to support the Go 2 as you brush the underbelly of your beard.
Alternatively, you could use your hand for this step. The teeth of the brush will not burn your hand even at the highest temperatures. However, the back of the brush can get quite warm — although it's nothing to be concerned about.
You could also neatly brush the hair under your chin if you have a short beard.
Brushing outwards to create the appearance of a heavier beard is another option. If you have a thinner beard you may want to avoid this technique since it can highlight translucency.
Consider using a comb to achieve a different look.
The Go 2 is a dream come true for dudes with longer mustaches. It can iron out a mustache with just a few side strokes.
Apply some beard balm when you’re done to tame any flyaway hairs.
Straightening can also reveal when you need to get your next beard trim. Using the Go 2 before a self-trim or a barber appointment can make for a uniform, neat trim.
