The best beard trimmer should keep your facial hair from looking unkempt, properly cutting all the hair after just a few passes.

There are a few things you should consider before buying a beard trimmer. After all, different people have different beards and styles, and you might even be looking for something that you can use for other areas of body hair, too. Here are a few things to keep in mind:

And, of course, the beard trimmer should be safe to use. After research and real-life usage, we have narrowed down the list of our five favorite beard trimmers.

I have been using older variants of the Philips Norelco Multigroom 3000 for nearly eight years because of how reliable they have been – even though I originally bought them because of the low price and they carried the Norelco name, and not so much for longevity. It’s proof that you don’t need to spend a lot for a good trimmer.

The Multigroom 3000 comes with three interchangeable trimmer heads: full size, precision, and nose and ear. To clean, just pop the head off the trimmer and rinse it. For the full-size trimmer head, there are seven guards with varying lengths, including three for trimming head hair. An included bag helps keep everything in one place.

Regardless of beard style, this trimmer does the job: tackle a full face of hair and shave down for a stubble look. The precision head is handy for creating that professional look.

What I like about the Multigroom 3000 are the high-quality steel blades and contoured shape that allows for a comfortable hold. Be careful: The blades are sharp, so make sure you use a guard or exercise care. The rechargeable battery is rated for 60 minutes of continuous use, but as someone who only needs to trim his facial hair every other week, I find these trimmers to have enough standby power. If you trim on a regular basis, you may need to charge it once a week.

While reliable, the motor can die on you – as it did with my first trimmer. For the price, you will get good use out of it before you would need a replacement. – Les Shu

The Wahl Lithium Ion Plus has stood the test of time as one of the best-selling beard trimmers, thanks to its reliability and the many attachments that the trimmer comes with. You’ll find this trimmer recommended by other reviewers, like Wirecutter and The Strategist, and not just us

The Lithium Ion Plus has one attachment to trim your beard and another for precise detailing. There are also attachments for trimming nose and ear hair. On top of that, it has 12 combs for different hair lengths. There is a power adapter for recharging the internal battery and tools to clean the heads. The size and weight also makes it ideal for travel

Wahl products are popular with professional barbers, but that doesn’t mean they’re indestructible. You’ll want to be careful with how much water it’s exposed to, as some users have noted a little rust after longer periods of time, and the running water can cause the blades to wear out quicker. Because of that, cleaning the device can take some time, as you’ll have to use the included brush. Since the heads are removable, you can purchase new ones should you wear them out.

For the hirsute among us who require a trimmer that handles both face and body, the Philips OneBlade Face & Body Hybrid is the tool to consider.

Operational in both wet or dry, you can rinse it under water or shave in the shower – just don’t submerge it in water. The OneBlade comes with two removable blades (each for face and body), combs for different trim lengths, and a guard for trimming around delicate areas. The blade is designed for trimming, edging, and even shaving your face, although we recommend using a separate shaver instead since it doesn’t shave as close – unless you want the stubble look. But, it’s comfortable to use as it doesn’t pull hair out completely.

The rechargeable battery is rated for 60 minutes of continuous use, which is fine for quick, daily maintenance.

Each blade will last up to four months depending on often you use it, according to the company. However, a two-pack blade replacement is not cheap, which means it will cost more to maintain this product. – Les Shu

Pros: Can be used for trimming and shaving, works for face and body hair, reasonable price point, wet or dry operation

Some trimmers are a bit difficult to clean, but Philips Norelco makes the chore easy, thanks to a built-in vacuum.

Philips claims that the vacuum in the Norelco 7200 will suck up 90% of cut hairs. After shaving, all you have to do is dump the reservoir into the trash.

Of course, the vacuum isn’t the only advantage of this trimmer. It also comes with a beard comb and two detail comb attachments. Plus, you can tweak comb lengths by 0.5mm increments simply by turning a dial, making for a super precise trim.

This trimmer can be recharged, but instead of the 60-minute rating you’ll find with most Philips Norelco trimmers, this one works for 80 minutes before you need to plug it in. It can also be used while charging, so even when the battery is dead, it isn’t completely useless. A plus: There’s a battery indicator.
