Most of us have gotten more into DIY than we ever expected to over the past couple years. We're also, as a society, more aware of self-care needs than ever before. With those two things in mind, you definitely need to have a good pair of hair clippers and trimmers on hand at home. Regardless of how often you go to the barber, there are certain touchups you can and should do yourself. And there are others that you and your barber probably aren't on close enough terms for. So we rounded up the best hair and body trimmers out there for home use. Depending on your personal grooming needs, there is something right for everyone on this list. However, we do not take accountability for any styling mishaps the come with the learning curve of becoming a DIY barber.

ConAir MetalCraft High Performance Clippers

Best All Purpose Clippers

Chances are that your barber buys professional grade equipment outside the price range of what you want to spend for at-home trimming. The ConAir MetalCraft series is the closest thing to professional grade equipment that you'll find for an affordable price. The clippers, along with the 8 attachments that come with them, will do everything your non-professional hands can handle. Best of all, this trimmer looks pretty good doing it.

Andis Master Cordless Clippers

The Top of the Line

If you’re going to cut your own hair at home, we highly recommend Andis’ cordless clipper, which is a favorite among professional barbers for its long battery life, sleek design, and adaptability. It’s durable enough to run through thick, coarse hair without any nicks, but can also gently trim fine hair. It’s been a lifesaver for influencer Phillip Holmes, who uses this daily to keep his lineup sharp.

The Beast

Barbers call this clipper a beast for a reason. A sturdy body and a 45-watt motor (similarly priced clipper motors average about 15 watts) allow it to plow through even the curliest hairs with speed and ease without any nicks or cuts. Perfect if you want a quick quarantine buzz cut. Beware though, its motor is as loud as it is powerful.

King C. Gillette Style Master

Best Beard Trimmer

King C. Gillette is the high-end wing of the Gillette you know. How does a company built on shaving compete with the rise of beards? They make a beard trimmer, of course. And a company known for facial hair removal wasn't going to jeopardize their reputation with just any beard trimmer. They went top of the line with the Style Master and it will keep your beard looking fresh.

Remington Virtually Indestructible Grooming Kit

The All-In-One Kit

Looking for a multipurpose clipper at a great price point? Grab Remington’s taxi-colored cutter, which comes with five clip guards, and a beard attachment so you can shape your mane and facial hair in one go. While it’s smaller than most of our other favorite clippers, it definitely punches above its weight class. We found that it can still cut hair relatively quickly, and without any snagging.

Ballsy B2 Trimmer

Best Manscaping Trimmer

Trimming the hedges, so to speak, with just any old clippers is risky. Surfaces aren't as smooth and everything is more sensitive so mishaps can be painful ... or worse. With that in mind, Ballsy set out to make a purpose-built manscaping trimmer. The B2 has the power and sharpness needed to handle the job while maintaining the precision and protection needed to prevent any unfortunate damage.

The Classic Clippers

The Wahl Chrome Pro just looks like what you picture hair clippers should look like in your head. They are the no-frills classic that gets the job done every time. With the Chrome Pro Haircutting kit you get all the accessories needed to start a barbershop in your kitchen. The plug-in feature may seem outdated but it provides maximum power every time and allows for prolonged use if you're giving a few cuts back-to-back.

The 15 best beard oils reviewed for the modern man
Man putting product on his face and beard.

Growing a beard is an automated process. Your body does it for you. And, if you're blessed with highly hirsute genes, your beard might even grow out thick and lush in the exact shape to frame your face. But that's not the case for most men, who see their beards grow out patchy and unruly. To tame and manicure that face monster properly, you're going to need to put in some grooming time. One of the most basic elements in a man's grooming arsenal? Beard oil.

Beard oil keeps your whiskers soft, staving off unwelcome itchiness and smoothing the hair into a presentable condition. No matter the season, we suggest you eschew the big, bushy beard in favor of a neat, trim version. Beard oil can help keep your beard looking its best. You don’t want just any product, though — you want to invest in quality. Behold, the best beard oils reviewed for the modern man.

Don't get burned! Get better with these soothing and healing aftershave balms
Bald man shaving face over sink

Like any of life's pursuits, looking our best means keeping the right tools handy. If keeping your face clean-shaven is your ideal, you'll need more than just the best razor to get an efficient shave. Your shaving regimen isn't really complete without using one of the best aftershave balms, a critical step in keeping your skin fresh, hydrated, and in the best shape possible following a close shave. Which one is best for you? Here are a few things to think about before you start shopping for your next aftershave balm.

Shaving can overly irritate the skin, especially if you’re not careful or properly equipped. (Black men in particular can benefit from using one of these moisturizing balms — rather than a drying, alcohol-based, classic aftershave — as part of keeping skin in great shape and fighting ingrown hairs.) Use one of the aftershave balms we recommend below to deliver comfort and relief. These aftershave balms are designed to target problem areas and cool down the skin while hydrating, moisturizing, and protecting your skin, fighting the wear and tear of climate and aging. Change the way you shave by adding one of the best aftershave balms to your essential grooming products, then thank us later.
