FOUNDER OF WINDLE LAB, AN AWARD-WINNING SALON & HAIR PRODUCT BRAND
Magic Clip Cordless, £104.80 | Wahl
“For something powerful and super accurate, this is the trimmer for you – especially if you want to achieve a great fade. I like to use it over the comb with no guards and pair it with the Windle Lab Essential Oils Elixir. This is amazing for beard hair and is formulated with apricot, coconut, camellia and oat oils, and leaves the beard soft and smelling great.”
FOUNDER OF HORACE, A NATURAL GROOMING BRAND
“I am very fond of this one from Braun – it’s great for both beard and keeping nose hair tidy too. Typically, I only need to trim my beard once a week and in terms of prep, I like to use a scrub and naturally opt for my Horace Gentle Face Scrub – it’s great at removing dead skin cells to make the shave even smoother. After trimming my beard, I clean my face with Horace Purifying Face Cleanser and follow this with my usual skincare routine.”
FOUNDER OF PATRICKS, A MEN’S SKINCARE & HAIRCARE BRAND
“These clippers have a blade that’s 40mm wider than other trimmers’ – which I value for its ability to cut quickly but evenly. I also find the guards on these larger clippers give a much cleaner cut thanks to the adjustable taper lever. This makes it much easier to do 0.5 blade lengths for a tighter fade. I use the number 1 guard for the beard and cheek area then switch to a 0.5 (no guard) for my moustache and chin where I have thicker, darker hair.”
One Blade Pro Face & Body, £99.99 | Philips
“I always keep this one on hand, both on grooming jobs in my professional kit, and in my personal grooming kit too. I love it because it's one of the only trimmers that doesn’t irritate or cause redness to my sensitive skin. It also has great battery life and it can be used on wet or dry skin. My favourite way to use it is to cleanse my skin, pat dry and shave on the lowest blade possible. I follow this by cleansing, before finishing with cold water. This way my skin is protected from getting any ingrown hairs. I also love how versatile it is as it’s equipped with several different blades.”
FOUNDER OF THE GREY, AN AWARD-WINNING MEN'S SKINCARE BRAND
“I love the firmness of this professional clipper and its adjustable lever. The cutting length can be adjusted between 0.5 and 2.9mm without having to change the blade which makes it so easy to use – when I travel I don’t need to bring extra detachable combs with me. To use this trimmer I just prep my skin with an exfoliating face scrub (especially my neck area) to avoid any ingrown beard hairs. I then use a face cream to calm down and nourish the skin post-shave too.”
