Factors to Consider before purchasing a good beard trimmer:
It’s possible to buy a good beard trimmer even if you have a tight budget, as the market is diverse with different options. The price also greatly depends on the attachments you get with the trimmer, like those to cut your hair or to remove ear, nose, and excess eyebrow hair. The more functions there are, the higher the price will be, so choose only what you really need if you want to save some finances.
- Corded or cordless.
You have to think whether you may need your trimmer outside the house or any other place with outlets. If you think you may find yourself in such a situation, a cordless beard trimmer will be the best. However, they may cost more, so if you think you will need the device only at home, a corded variant will not become a bad idea. In both cases, there are models that come with a special block that contains all the attachments and other details you may need. This will help you if you plan to take the device out or you tend to lose small pieces even at home.
It’s important that your trimmer is regularly cleaned and maintained, because if it’s not, the quality of trimming becomes much worse. You will have troubles not only with the work of the device but with the quality of your beard, too. Some trimmers come out washable, which makes it easier to clean them after every usage. Some other models may need a special oil you will have to apply on the head of the device every now and then. You can even find a model with self-sharpening blades that don’t require much maintenance.
Decide according to the point of how frequently you will use the device. If you use it every day, you need a model that will be easy to clean, better washable. Using it just to maintain a good appearance of your beard, trimming it one a week, for example, you shouldn’t worry about maintenance much.
- Styling options.
In case your main goal is just to maintain a classic beard, this option won’t be an issue. You can buy a common trimmer with one or a couple of heads just to trim the excess hair every now and then. But if you want to try some interesting original shapes and style your beard in different ways, consider getting a trimmer that would allow you to do so. Look for a device with lots of heads that serve different needs, so you could maintain your original type of beard.
- Comb settings.
This point is extremely important, as you need to know more about the comb settings on the trimmer you are about to buy. It determines the length of your beard, so if you don’t want to accidentally shave a part of it or make it too short, make sure you choose the right comb. For example, if your goal is to have a stubble look, make sure your device has settings that adjust its length. The setting has to be adjusted low enough to achieve such a look.
