Some of you would consider it a blessing, and yet for others you still see it as a curse. I’m taking about shaving your facial hair. The whole notion of facial hair has changed over time back and forth.
At one time it was fashionable to have a long beard. There have also been times when a total clean shave was the norm. And currently we’re living in a time where stubs and a complete beard are fashionable.
Having a beard is even so popular now a days that I’ve even seen several newsreaders coming on TV with well-cultivated facial hair.
So if you have a nice full beard and you follow the current fashion somewhat then getting the best beard trimmer is something that could be on your mind.
Different Strokes for Different Folks
As with history, the current state of fashion also has many forms and shapes. Some stick with the ordinary moustache, while other go for the full Monty and leave their facial hair growing all over for a very long time.
And of course having the best beard trimmer allows you to make many shapes and forms to your beard, adding an extra dimension to your personality and style.
The latest innovation comes from the Dutch electronics company Philips. They have developed a beard trimmer that is so called “Laser Guided”.
When trimming your beard you will see the contours clearly lit by a laser that is fitted on the head of this beard trimmer. It’s not that this one is the best beard trimmer, but it is a nice gadget…
Whether this will qualify as the best beard trimmer remains to be seen.
How to actually use a Beard Trimmer
Buying a good bread trimmer is actually easy; using it could be a different matter for a lot of men. Let me give you some ideas.
Depending on how long you want your beard to be, you adjust the settings to your desires. Then starting from you sideburns you move your trimmer downward where you stop at the middle of you chin. You repeat this process left and right until your whole beard is done.
You then put your trimmer to minimal length and only do the lower part of the beard in your neck. The part at the end (or beginning) of your jaw line and below.
Usually it works best if you do not go against the grain. If you do you might cut out chunks around the area of your yaw line.
How to Get the Best Beard Trimmer
There are plenty of beard trimmers out there, and finding one that suits your needs depends greatly on your personal needs and wants.
A good beard trimmer also doesn’t have to be that expensive. Here are a couple of points you might want to look at and consider before you buy:
Brand; When it comes to brand there is also plenty of choice. But as is usually the case with brands that with a brand comes a price. While often a brand safeguards quality this is not always the case.
Price; As mentioned above, usually brand beard trimmers usually come at a price. And there is your own personal budget to consider.
Wireless or not; To be honest, I’m not 100% sure if non-wireless beard trimmers are still sold. Mine is rechargeable and a full charge lasts for about 5-6 weeks when I use it every other day. Pretty good!
Accessories; You can buy a beard trimmer that does only that. Trim your beard. I would strongly suggest buying a machine that can do more facial hair trimming, like nose hair and hair in and around your ears.
It makes sense that most beard shavers will be electric beard trimmers. But also there they come in all forms and shapes. No wonder that it can be confusing to find the right one that meets your needs.
