The Best Beard Trimmers to Tame Your Wild Whiskers

We here at The Manual encourage men to experiment with growing out their facial hair, but simply putting down the razor won’t get you to your goal of a magnificent mane. Whether you’re going full lumberjack or sporting some rugged stubble, you’ll need to put in the work and trim.

Growing a bold and brawny beard can be made much easier when you have the right tools. Taking a trimmer to your scruff can help a patchy beard look fuller or make a bushy beard look neater. It also works wonders to prevent hairs from splitting, which is important if you’re growing to new lengths. We’ve put together this list of the best beard trimmers for all of your whisker styling needs.

Same as its predecessor but with more capability: a confident trim, edge, or shave for any part of the body that needs it.
