7 Best Beard Trimmers for the Rugged Professional

Whether you’re looking to tame that grizzly beard of yours, or sport the stubble look that women can’t get enough, you’ll need to invest some cash into a good beard trimmer. Beards have seen a strong surge in popularity over the past few years, and oddly enough, beard trimmers haven’t really kept up with the market. There are still a large amount of low quality products out there, but thankfully for every handful of underperforming beard trimmers we tested out, there was one that would stand out – leaving us with perfectly groomed facial hair.

Seeing that I have a beard that has me looking like a street walker within weeks (which works out great during the winter season), it wasn’t hard to test a large amount of beard trimmers on the market in a short period of time. The goal was to find the best beard trimmers out there – ones that would not only leave you with an evenly cut beard when all was said and done, but were also both easy and comfortable to use. Keep in mind that although you can just use your set of clippers you use for buzzing your head, they won’t let you dial in the details quite like a pair of trimmers dedicated to your face. These devices were designed specifically for the contours and softer skin on your face. We tested both battery powered, and corded versions to find the best performing groomers on the market. Keep in mind that while cordless models are more convenient, and often more ergonomic (no messy cables getting in the way), you will be sacrificing power more times than not. So stop wasting time doing the research, wondering which beard trimmer to purchase. Check out our list of the 7 best beard trimmers on the retail market – in no particular order.

Andis T-Outliner

Andis T-Outliner

After being recommended this product by a friend of ours that works at a local barbershop, we had high hopes for this trimmer- and it delivered. The contoured housing is not the most comfortable on the list, but its blades provide precise, close-cutting effects that are designed specifically for trimming your beard and mustache. The blades can be adjusted for different lengths, and this dry shaving trimmer also works great for cleaning up your neck, and trimming those pesky hairs around your ears. [Purchase: $48]

Conair i-Stubble

Conair i-Stubble

Equipped with a floating, contoured head, the i-Stubble was design to follow of the curves of your face. The end result is a comfortable shaving experience with accurate cutting capabilities. There are 15 different length settings to choose from, all of which can be selected from the LCD screen. While it is a little underpowered compared to some of the corded options (as nearly all battery-powered options are), the dual battery system does provide for a much longer battery life than some of the other trimmers on the market.

Philips Norelco QT4070 Vacuum Beard Trimmer

Philips Norelco QT4070 Vacuum Beard Trimmer

While it does offer length settings ranging from 1-18mm, it’s in the cleanup department where this trimmer really shines. No longer do you have to worry about sweeping up all those tiny hairs after a trim. This Norelco model comes with a built-in vacuum that will suck up all your clippings, providing a truly mess-free experience. The multifunctional display display battery status, and selected hair length, while the turbo boost button gives you a bit more juice for those thicker beards. After an hour of charging, the lithium-ion battery provides up to 50 minutes of wireless shaving. [Purchase: $50]

Wahl Peanut Professional

Wahl Peanut Professional

Many consider the Peanut to be the absolute best bang for your buck when it comes to beard trimmers, and for good reason. This thing is portable (measuring in at 4 inches and weighing just 4 ounces), is very comfortable when in use, and downright outperforms nearly all of its competitors in its price range. Sure it’s corded, but the cord is long, and you will absolutely love the additional power it provides. Our only complaint was the fact that it comes with just 4 cutting guides. [Purchase: $34]

Panasonic Milano Series ER-GB40-S Beard Trimmer

Panasonic Milano Series ER-GB40-S Beard Trimmer

If you’re in search of a beard trimmer that will also let you trim body hair with ease (and you don’t mind spending a bit more money) this is a solid choice.This all-in-one hair, beard and body trimmer provides both wet and dry shaving. Thanks to the built-in water drain feature, this Panasonic trimmer can be submersed completely under water, meaning you never have to take it out of the shower. The cordless operation offers up 50 minutes of shaving, but it is worth noting that it requires 15 hour of charging. The one con is far outweighed by the many pros though, which include a precision-cut stainless steel, Hypo-Allergenic blades, comfortable rubber grip handles, and a 19 different length settings. [Purchase: $78]

Wahl Lithium Ion Stainless Steel Trimmer

There are 22 different accessories included with the trimmer, along with an ear and nose hair trimmer.

Braun Cruzer 6 Beard Trimmer

Braun Cruzer 6 Beard Trimmer

The Gillette Company owned brand is known for their electric razors, so it only seems fitting that their flagship model finds a spot on the list of the best beard trimmers – and it was certainly earned. This is the brand’s most powerful beard trimmer on the market, and while it was designed for your face, it also doubles as a pair of clippers. There are six different settings for your beard (ranging from 1-11mm) with six different hair comb settings for your head (ranging from 10-20mm). When you’ve got the perfect length, use the ultra sharp precision trimmer to get everything lined up perfectly. The one drawback to this particular trimmer would have to be its battery life. Braun equipped the Cruzer with a dual battery setup to boost power, but it drains the battery more quickly, offering up 40 minutes of shave time. [Purchase: $40]
