What to look for in a beard trimmer
Before buying a beard trimmer, you may want to look at the different features and options available. Do you need a powerful and reliable trimmer to achieve the best close shave? Or are you always on-the-go and in need of a cordless, easy to wash trimmer that still delivers precise edging?
There are four main types of electric beard trimmers – cordless, wired, dry shave and wet – here’s what to look out for in each of these trimmers to get the best results:
– For a close, even shave
To achieve a close and even shave, pick a beard and hair trimmer made with stainless steel blades. The quality of the blades is really where it’s at, so, whether you’re going for cordless, wired, dry shave or wet models, the first thing to check is the quality of the blades.
– Precise Edging
To achieve a sharp look, choose a beard trimmer with well-designed grips. Beard trimming is all down to precision, so even a small accidental slip can ruin your look. No matter what model you pick, test out the grip and make sure you can hold it firmly and comfortably.
– Exchangeable combs for different hair lengths
The best beard and hair trimmers come with a wide range of attachment heads and guards, designed to be used on different hair lengths. These adjustable combs fit onto your trimmer directly. If you like to switch your look, pick models with a larger variety of attachments. Found your style? Stick to the basics and opt for traditional comb trimmers.
– Easy to wash & waterproof
If you prefer to trim in the shower, consider buying a waterproof electric beard trimmer. These models are designed to be used in water and don’t rust. However, if you love the ease and practicality of dry shaving, fear not, for a lot of dry trimmers can also be used in water and can be easily washed and rinsed off.
