Best Beard Trimmers – Tools For a Perfect Beard

Last updated: September 19, 2022

Have you ever gotten your beard trimmed at a barbershop? The lines are so clean, the trim is so uniform, and you just look so crisp and clean. Wouldn’t you love to replicate that beard trim at home? Of course you do.

Here is something your barber will never, ever use when trimming your beard – and that is a trimmer that is marketed as a “beard trimmer”. These beard trimmers are absolutely garbage, not only will you not get a good outline on your beard, or a uniform trim overall, but the actual guards they come with are often inaccurate.

What your barber uses is a high quality hair trimmer that is meant to cut through thick hair and outline properly – they will be using a professional grade product because it works properly.

Beard Trimmers You Need


You’re going to need 2 tools to get a perfect beard trim every time – an outliner trimmer and a hair trimmer. A high quality outliner will give you those crispy neck and cheek lines that only a straight razor or a high quality trimmer can achieve, and a barber quality hair trimmer will cut down your beard to a proper length – an ACCURATE length and in a uniform manner.

The Outliner

BaBylissPRO GoldFX

When looking to get a high quality outliner, we highly recommend BaBylissPRO GoldFX Outline Trimmer. This is a barber quality outliner that will give you a perfect neck line and cheek line, and will allow the hair trimmer to do it’s work.

The Hair Trimmer

Wahl Cordless Magic Clipper

You’re going to be using a regular barber quality hair trimmer for your beard – none of that “beard trimmer” crap. Here we highly recommend the Wahl Cordless Magic Clipper.

These tools are an investment. They are expensive but will keep you saving money for years and years.
