There’s no chore more daunting for people with facial hair than managing one’s beard. Managing your facial hair is harder than it sounds. You must either have it professionally managed by a barber or trim it on your own. Trimming a your beard sounds easy, and yes it can be if you have the appropriate beard trimmer, be warned though if you try and do it with scissors, clippers or a standard shaver things can get very messy very quickly.

Scissors and razors are extremely difficult to use on yourself, even if you’re in front of a mirror. Youre welcome to try but you almost certainly will waste loads of effort trying to make your cuts and beard even.

Some people use hair clippers which can be suitable but, but have a couple of significant downsides, there is no compartment to capture the cut hair and it just falls to the floor making cleaning up afterwards a lot of effort. Hair clippers also require constant lubrication, cleaning and a permanent power cords so are much higher maintenance than a beard trimmer, not to mention being nowhere near as versatile.

Beard trimmers are made for the convenience of those who want to get a neat, but rugged, look. They are perfect for both scruffy, bearded man on the go and the fashion conscious that want neatly trimmed facial hair, beard trimmers an evolution of hair clippers, having taken the basic hair clipper concept and enhanced it to work on the generally shorter beard hair.

Some may say that having a separate beard trimmer and electric hair clipper is just pointless, we bet that once youve tried a beard trimmer youll never go back to using hair clippers on your beard (especially once youve cleared all the mess off the floor!). Its something that you can only really understand when youve tried using a beard trimmer.

Every man is going to maintain their beard differently meaning the best beard trimmer will vary from person to person. For men who want to maintain a specific style or length, rather than a general hair trimmer, a beard trimmer is the best option. It gives you more styling options, and also has the slimmer blade, allowing you to be more detailed when shaving your beard. When selecting a beard trimmer its well worth checking out beard trimmer reviews to ensure youre purchasing the most appropriate trimmer for you. Some of the key factors to consider when purchasing a beard trimmer are:

  1. What design style you want to maintain?
  2. What hair length can the beard trimmer shave and how many length settings are there?
  3. How long does the beard trimmer hold its charge for, and is it portable?
  4. Does it have a detachable comb for styling and straightening? Do you need different attachment heads, for different styles?
  5. Who is the manufacturer (is it a trusted brand name)?
  6. How easy is it to clean/maintain?
  7. What type of blades does it have?
  8. What is your budget?
  9. Is it waterproof, and do you need it to be? (do you want to be able to use it in the shower)
  10. Does it have a laser guide (were not joking..)

These are just a few of the questions to ask, when selecting a trimmer its important to understand what the key aspects are for you. Not all beard trimmers have the same number of attachment heads. Not all trimmers offer styling tools. Most trimmers include carrying cases and chargers, for portability but some don’t.

What style of beard do you have?

crazy-beardLets start off with arguably the most important factor, your personal style of beard. Your style of beard will certainly impact the type of beard trimmer thats most suitable for you, if you prefer a more precise beard style (like a Goatee or Chin strip) then make sure when you check out the beard trimmer reviews that you find a Beard trimmer that has a precision trimmer attachment. If, on the other hand you have a fairly full face of hair or just need an even trim all over this is less of a consideration and you probably dont need to worry about it, unless of course you plan to change your beard style in the future.

What hair length can the trimmer shave and how many length settings are there?

One of the most important considerations and one that is often focused on in beard trimmer reviews is the hair lengths that the beard trimmer can cut. If youre looking to maintain a short stubbly beard then ensure you go for a beard trimmer that can cut the shortest beard lengths, this is normally 1/64 of an inch or 0.05 mm.

beard-trimmer-cut-length-adjustmentIf on the other hand youre looking to maintain a full face of hair then you may want to consider a trimmer that can trim and cut longer hair. The maximum length varies but beard trimmers can generally cut up to about 13/64 in or 10mm hair lengths. If youre looking to maintain a beard thats longer than this then it may well be worth your while focusing on hair clippers or scissors rather than beard trimmers.

Bear bearing in mind when choosing a beard trimmer its not just the minimum and maximum hair length that should be considered, you should also consider the hair length increments that the beard trimmer can accommodate. Some increase in 1/64 in (0.05 mm) increments, where as others tend to have less increments between the minimum and maximum. For most people the number of increments will not be a key requirement but if you want to vary your beard length, trim to a consistent length, or just want to have complete control over the length of your beard then this may be a consideration for you.

When looking at the hair lengths that the beard trimmer can cut its important to recognize that if you dont have a low minimum length then you may struggle to shave some of the finer hairs. The last thing you want to do it to have to buy a razor because youre beard trimmer cant cut the finer hairs. For this reason we recommend that unless you have a full face of hair you ensure the minimum hair legth that the beard trimmer can accomodate is 1/64in (0.05mm).

Its not just the different hair lengths that the beard trimmer can cut that need considering, you should also think about how often you will want to change the cutting length and if its likely to be frequent, how easy it is to change the hair length. If you just have the same length all over your face this may be less of a consideration but many people will have different lengths on the side of the face compared to the chin and upper lip areas. If you like to have varied lengths of facial hair its vital to select a beard trimmer that is easy to change the hair length setting on, the last thing you want to have to do is spend ages changing the beard trimmer settings when you just want a quick shave in the morning before work.

What is the Battery Like?

beard-trimmer-battery-lifeBattery life is a key consideration with most hand held electrical appliances and beard trimmers are no exception. Some beard trimmers rely on a constant power source and need to be constantly plugged in, fortunately these are starting to be phased out of the market and now most beard trimmers have an internal battery for cordless use. The beard trimmers that run off batteries will typically have a run time of 30-60mins and a charge time of 1-4hrs.

When considering the battery its worth firstly thinking about your personal lifestyle, some people tend to just leave their beard trimmer plugged in, if this is you youll probably be less concerned about the run time and charging time. If, on the other hand youre like me and tend to wait for the battery to die before charging it you may want to ensure you purchase a beard trimmer that has a fast charge function, this is increasingly becoming popular and many beard trimmers now have a fast 10-15mins charge option that charges the trimmer enough for 1 shave.

Who is the manufacturer?

There are lots of different beard trimmer manufacturers who are all releasing products on a regular basis. It doesnt make a huge amount of difference which manufacturer you go with although it is worth bearing in mind that some (like Braun & Philips) have an exceptional reputation both when it comes to quality of products and customer service levels. Having said that some of the other major players in the beard trimmer market like Wahl and Remington have some excellent products that will do everything you need, often at a slightly reduced price. Unless you have a particularly strong preference for or against a specific manufacturer we suggest that you dont worry too much about and just find a beard trimmer that suits your needs.

What attachments does it come with?

beard-trimmer-attachmentsIncreasingly beard trimmers are coming with a wide variety of attachments especially when you opt to buy to spend slightly more than the cheapest trimmers on the market. Depending on your personal grooming styles and preferences these attachment, could be beneficial and save you significant money in the long run. The attachments come in a variety of forms, as youd expect the typical attachment is a precision trimmer, to enable precise trimming and styling (if you have a goatee, chin strap, or something similar, this is a MUST).

Some of the other attachments are probably more of a surprise initially but soon become essential tools in your personal grooming arsenal. As youd expect the attachments generally relate to trimming hair, increasingly hair on other parts of your body, like nose and ear hair, these can be a welcome addition especially considering the minimal increase in price that comes with getting a beard trimmer that has these attachments, if you were to buy a beard trimmer, nose hair trimmer and an ear hair trimmer youd certainly pay more than if you just went for a beard trimmer that has the attachments to cover all of these tasks.

Many beard trimmers also comb with a comb for styling and straightening your  beard, this is another nice to have and only really becomes beneficial for those who like to keep a longer beard.

Cleaning & Maintenance

This is an often overlooked consideration when buying a beard trimmer, remember that when you trim your beard the hair has to go somewhere, this is something that does vary from trimmer to trimmer, some just let the hair drop on the floor which can make for a quite unsightly bathroom where as others, and this is increasingly becoming the norm have a vacuum system that catches the hair. This is great but means your trimmer will need cleaning on a fairly regular basis. Most beard trimmer reviews will include reference to how easy they are to clean as this can vary significantly.

In addition to cleaning, its also worth considering the lubrication aspect, some blades require regular lubrication which can be messy, time consuming and adds additional cost.

Other considerations & Beard Trimmer Reviews

For beard trimmer connoisseurs, one of the other considerations is the blade type, beard trimmer blades are typically made of either Steel or Titanium, the main difference being that the titanium blades are sharper and stay sharper for longer. This makes the titanium blades sound better, and yes they probably are but this improved quality comes at an increased price and you ave to make your own judgement on whether youd rather pay a bit more initially for a longer lasting beard tirmmer or if you;d rather save some moey initally but hve the risk of having to replace the trimmer sooner. Some beard trimmers have a self sharpening mechanism on them meaning the blades stay sharper for MUCH longer, this can have a massive impact on the lifespan of the trimmer and is highly recommended if you can afford the extra few dollars.

The other key consideration weve not mentioned is whether the beard trimmer is waterproof or not. For some people this has absolutely no impact on them, however for those it does impact, its a significant impact. If you like to trim your beard in the shower, you MUST have a waterproof trimmer, if on the other hand you dont trim your beard in the  shower you probably dont care. Theres not much more we can say on this it purely comes down to personal preference. For more detail on all the beard trimmers mentioned in this article and the pros and cons check out our beard trimmer reviews category.
