Are you someone who already has a luscious beard or are you someone who has decided to grow one? Do you wear your beard with pride? Or are you interested in experimenting with your facial hair?
Whatever the case, we have something interesting to tell you that will help you bring your ace styling game forward – you need to take care of your beard. And by taking care we do not merely mean putting up the essential oils, washing it or styling it by applying wax. Your beard needs all the love and attention as well. And you can do that in any form – be it trimming, shaving, detailing, or pruning. If it sounds like your grooming routine and you want to take it even forward then you need to invest in one good Trimmer for Men. Among all other devices or items, a men’s trimmer holds a significant place in men’s grooming essentials.
But finding the best trimmer is a challenging task. Especially when there are so many brands and options available online, you really need to be sure about a few things before investing in the ‘one’!
In this blog, we have compiled a comprehensive guide that you can count on to identify the crucial aspects that must not be overlooked when buying a trimmer for men.
But before we get into the specifics, there are a few things that you need to establish from the beginning.
1. Firstly, know why you are buying a trimmer. What we mean is you should establish the purpose of buying a hair trimmer. Do you need something that will help you style your beard in different styles? Or are you looking for something more versatile that takes care of your body’s grooming needs as well? A standard blade might work perfectly for you if you need a trimmer to simply maintain your lustrous growth. While an all-over body groping demands particular blades for each area of the head and body. This can be anything from a personal trimmer with a changeable head for removing unwanted ear and nose hair, to a multigroomer with interchangeable heads that caters to the face, body, and head hair.
2. Secondly, it is important to be aware of your beard type. The type of facial hair you have or choose to grow will determine the hair trimmer you need. Once you have established these two pointers, keep in mind to have a look at the following features when buying hair trimmers for men.
You need a trimmer that is designed to make grooming at home an easy task. Since you are going to groom yourself, you should look for a trimmer that is easy to hold for long durations. Trust us, you do not want something that does have a solid grip as it might lead to unwanted cuts and unpleasant accidents. A good trimmer for men should be ergonomically designed for comfortable handling and use. Also, consider the fact that it reaches the most remote parts of your body. It should have the finesse and power to give the desired results.
Wet vs dry usage
Both dry and wet body groomers are available in the market. While wet ones can be fully waterproof or partly waterproof, they can be used with shaving foam or gel to protect the sensitive skin from rashes and irritations. If it’s fully waterproof, you can use it under the shower. Otherwise, be careful while using, as even small amounts of water in the battery area can destroy the groomer. Dry body groomers come in handy as you can use them anytime and anywhere. However, they can irritate the sensitive skin.
Take a look at the type of trimmer motor – is it rotary or foil? Rotary trimmers are versatile and adept at handling longer hair, while foil trimmers offer precision for close shaving.
Corded Vs Cordless
You can either buy a corded trimmer or go for a cordless one. If you go for a corded trimmer then you will need to ensure that you have a source of power around you when you decide to groom. While the corless ones give you the freedom to attend your grooming needs on the go.
Length options & versatility
Adjustable combs that can be attached to the trimmer allow you to be able to cut or trim for different lengths. Especially if you are going to experiment with your style, having a trimmer with varied comb options is going to be really helpful. Close trim attachments that range from grades 0.5-1.5mm help you maintain short stubbles, whilst long lustrous beards may require taming with a bigger length blade. Hence they are essential for creating your desired look.
Blades are one of the key features of trimmers. A cheap blade will not be sharp and will not be made of strong metal. It could even leave burns and rashes, as a poor quality blade tugs at the skin rather than slices through the bottom of the hair. As long as it’s stainless steel, you should not be worried. Stainless steel doesn’t rust and lasts a long time. Another option here is titanium blades. As with the stainless blades, they are also strongly built.
Ease of cleaning
Trimming and grooming is a messy affair. While you will clean the mess outside, you will also need to clean the trimmer. Hence, look for trimmers that come with washable head attachments that can be cleaned easily under water.
Last but not the least. Take a look at that price tag. If you think that a good trimmer should cost a bomb then you are in for a surprise. There are many trimmer options available online but you need to be cognizant of the fact – are they actually worth the cost?
Now that you have gone through the guide we hope that you have a fair understanding about buying a trimmer. Do your research, consider these things and then decide accordingly.
