    I shave my beard with a 2 guard then go 3/4 on my sideburns. It transitions pretty well.

    I have a hair trimmer with attachments from 0 to 4, I use different ones on different parts to transition, works well. Then I just clean up the surrounding areas.

    To start, just grow it all out, then when your beard is at the desired length or a bit longer (and your sideburns are too long), trim it all down even together.

    If you want to keep a tight/short beard, use a beard trimmer with an adjustable guard (you can get them for <$20 a wal-mart or other stores). If you want the length varied, it's easy to blend by changing the adjustments as you go from sideburn to chin.

    If you want a lengthier beard, sometimes the adjustable beard trimmer doesn't have a deep/long enough guard. At this stage, I use a plain black plastic comb, and electric hair clippers (or you could use the beard trimmer with the guard removed). I place the comb along the line of where I want my beard to be, and run the clippers along the comb to cut anything protruding past that point.

    This method also works if you have a curly beard. The guards on a beard trimmer or hair clipper tend to straighten the hairs, then cut. On a curly beard, this can make things look uneven, since the hairs curl back to their original position. By simply placing the comb where I want to cut, I more-or-less trim to shape, rather than trim to length.
