This is an important PSA for all you beardsmen out there, newbies and veterans alike. You need to trim your beards! I’m serious. You’ve invested time and money into that face mane and you’re just hurting yourself and those around you by not trimming the damn thing.
It’s not that difficult. And in this modern era with easy access to a plethora of electric beard trimmers, you have no excuse not to do it.
Okay, maybe one excuse; you don’t know which beard trimmer to buy. As I said, there are a lot of beard trimmers on the market and with so many to choose from, it can be overwhelming to wade through the bullshit and find what will work for you and your bearded lifestyle.
Well guess what, guys. By the end of this article, your one excuse to not trim your beard will be gone. Here are our favorite beard trimmers available right now.
This is a pretty great trimmer for people who hate having trimmed hairs all over the sink. I’ve had a couple roommates who would have benefitted from this trimmer (you know who you are).
The Philips trimmer comes with a built-in trim length setting that works from.5mm to 10mm in .5mm increments, so you can easily do neckline fades and all over trims. Plus, the vacuum picks up 90% of the trimmed hair, so the little hair that gets past it will be easy to clean.
There’s nothing worse than being in the middle of a beard trim and suddenly your trimmer’s battery dies. What’s great about this particular trimmer is it’s quick charging capabilities and long battery life, which is great for frequent travellers. You can get 3-4 hours of run time with an hour charge and 3-minutes of run time with a 1-minute charge.
The fact that it doesn’t have a battery indicator is a mark against it, but with such a quick charge, it’s not a huge issue. If you find yourself with a dead trimmer, just stick it on the charger and knock out another part of your morning routine. The Wahl is very precise and is at a great price.
I’ve mentioned the Brio before, which should tell you just how good it is. The ceramic blade paired with the titanium rake gives incredibly precise trims. It comes with 7 guard attachments and runs pretty quietly, which is great for the early risers with roommates. And, not for nothing, but it’s pretty aesthetically pleasing.
This is an ideal trimmer for the man on the go. The frequent travelers love this trimmer because it’s lighter than most and has an integrated blade guide to get different lengths with the twist of the built-in dial. No need to pack a bunch of guards for your trims. And unlike most trimmers, you can run the whole thing underwater for easy cleaning.
This one’s great for men who are going for a ZZ Top style beard (Yes, even the Reverend Billy G. trims his beard). It comes with a XL grooming comb that’ll let you clean up your beard without losing any of its glorious length. Plus it’s got a pop-up trimmer for precise line work, ideal for lining your cheeks and neck.
