The Best Beard Trimmers
If you’re growing out your facial hair, you need to be prepared to roll up your sleeves and embrace all the grooming it entails.
But, the insistent voice counters, don't we grow beards precisely to look effortless and natural? The answer is yes, looking effortless is often what we have in mind. But, much as we might wish otherwise, those hairs are unlikely to arrange themselves into an aesthetic, flattering formation all by themselves.
Which brings us to beard trimmers. They’re absolutely key to achieving the shape, growth and finish that you want, so let’s run through a few pointers when deciding which to get.
For a start, you want something that’s multi-purpose – unless you prepared for your bathroom cabinet to start resembling a tech-heavy corner of Q branch. The only exception to this rule is personal trimmers, which are small enough to cut nose or ear hairs, but also so small that a full beard trim becomes a test of endurance.
It makes sense to invest in a trimmer that will last. This doesn’t equate to throwing money at the issue – in fact, some great options are very economical – but it does mean buying a piece of kit that won’t need replacing every few months.
So before you do battle with your beard, make sure you take a look at our selection of the very best beard trimmers.
BaByliss for Men Nitride Trimmer
This BaByliss for Men innovation uses the unparalleled cutting power of titanium nitride blades, ensuring maximum control for even the most thatch-like of beards. Commitment to oomph doesn't lead to any sacrifice in precision, either. Its eight attachments include five different cutting heads and three separate comb guides to ensure the most exact finish possible, meaning it fully deserves it place in our list of the best beard trimmers.
WAHL Groomsman Battery Trimmer
There’s plenty of options for customisation with this WAHL trimmer. Its adjustable guide comb allows you to pick from six different beard lengths and it’s fantastic at tidying up those irritating tufts of hair that can grow around the throat or away from your sideburns. This is partly thanks to the precision ground steel blades, but the comfortable grip and cordless power also make it easy to manoeuvre into hard-to-reach areas.
Philips QT4013/23 Series 3000 Beard and Stubble Trimmer
The highly convenient travel pouch is the most obvious benefit to this trimmer but by no means the most impressive. Besides a detachable head, ergonomic design and skin-friendly, rounded tips, this Philips offering has twenty different settings that you can flick between with a turn of the wheel.
BaByliss For Men Super Beard Trimmer
Another BaByliss creation here, and one with an eye on the future. An LED screen displays the length setting selected, allowing for a greater degree of control – as do the length-lock technology, precise dial control and advanced blade technology. A Lithium-ion power performance feature, meanwhile, guarantees reliable cordless use after just three hours' charge.
WAHL Hygienic Personal Trimmer
When we imagine the ‘edge’ of a beard, we tend to think about the jawline. But what about the ears and nose, which not only border the beard but are key areas where overall definition can be lost? Investing in a high-quality personal trimmer provides a quick and efficient means of removing hairs without running the risk of cutting yourself.
