The Best Beard Trimmers Out There


Whether you like to keep a tight rein on your facial hair or prefer a grown-out look, a good beard trimmer will simplify your grooming routine. Here are the devices to consider.

Best For… Precision

Philips Series 900 Laser Guided Beard & Stubble Trimmer, £115.67 (was £120)
The world’s first laser-guided beard trimmer promises to deliver a precise shave every time. Follow the laser to get a sharp trim on both sides as powerful metal blades cut through any thick hairs. An LED display screen lets you monitor the length of your trim; waterproof casing means you can use this one in the shower. As a bonus, it fully charges in just one hour.

Best For… Reliability

Wahl Aqua Blade Wet/Dry Stubble & Beard Trimmer, £89.99
Wahl’s Aqua Blade trimmer comes in at just under £90, yet it boasts an array of premium add-ons including 12 attachment combs, a storage pouch, blade oil, cleaning brush and a sturdy charger. That’s not all: it’s suitable for both wet and dry use, is fully washable and offers 180 minutes of cordless usage from a one-hour charge.

Best For… Simplicity

Remington GE Graphite Series Grooming Kit, £35 (was £40)
Don’t be deterred by the understated design, this simple cordless trimmer gets the job done. Multiple attachments include a mini foil shaver, nose and eyebrow trimmer, and an adjustable comb – all of which help with head to toe grooming. Its graphite-coated blades are gentle on the skin and help reduce irritation, while the handy storage pouch is great when you’re on the move.

Best For… Portability

Philips OneBlade Hybrid Stubble Trimmer & Shaver, £26.66 (was £39.99)
This slim trimmer is a solid option for those looking for something portable. It comes with two dual-sided blades – one for the face and one for the body – and three combs, with contour-following technology to help achieve sharp, neat lines. There’s also a handy storage cap and pouch to keep it safe during your travels.

Best For… Less Mess

Philips Series 700 Vacuum Beard & Stubble Trimmer, £79.99
This trimmer features a clever vacuum that catches cut hair while stainless steel, double-sharpened blades deliver an impressive shave. Trim your beard or neaten up stubble with its lift and trim feature, leaving the device to tidy up as you go. Charge it for an hour to get 75 minutes of cordless use, or call on the quick-charge function if you’re in a hurry.

Best For… Your Wallet

Braun Beard Trimmer BT 3021/3221, £19.99
Braun’s remarkably priced cordless beard trimmer delivers an even, smooth cut and you can choose between 20 length settings for its durable stainless steel blades. The trimmer head and beard comb are both washable, while a cleaning brush encourages you to keep the device looking and feeling new. A solid option for those who aren’t ready to commit to a pricier model just yet.

Best For… Versatility

Braun 10-in-1 All-in-One Trimmer MGK7021, £81.99
That’s right: not a 3-in-1, not a 5-in-1, but a 10-in-1 trimmer. This Braun model features 13 length settings to suit a range of beard styles while an auto-sensing motor maintains a consistent cutting speed to ensure an even trim. Whether you just want to neaten up your facial hair or are looking to go completely beard-free, this waterproof device has you covered.

Best For… Quick Touch-Ups

Gillette All Purpose Styler Beard Trimmer, £13.40 (was £20)
Gillette’s easy-to-use model is a great choice for touch-ups when you’re in a hurry. It’s waterproof – so can be used in the shower – and promises crisp, defined lines with every use. It also has an easy-grip handle and comes with three combs to suit an array of beard styles and lengths.
