Philips was named the best beard trimmer brand in Australia by consumers in the 2019/2020 Finder Retail Awards. And with the OneBlade Pro garnering plenty of positive consumer reviews and boasting a host of versatile features, it's our pick as the best overall beard trimmer.
This hybrid device is designed for trimming, shaping and styling hair of any length. It features 14 length settings so that you can trim your beard to the perfect length, while the dual-sided blade allows you to shave in either direction. The OneBlade Pro is also compact, cordless and suitable for both wet and dry use.
If you're in the market for a budget-friendly beard trimmer, this Beard Styler Facial Grooming Kit offers lots of useful features for an affordable price.
The kit features a rechargeable beard trimmer and a separate, battery-operated ear and nose hair trimmer. The beard trimmer comes with a 2-18mm adjustable comb, and it runs for 45 minutes on a full charge. The trimming blades are stainless steel and the cordless design makes the Beard Styler easy to use.
Philips was named the best beard trimmer brand in Australia by consumers in the 2019/2020 Finder Retail Awards. And with this 18-in-1 trimmer capable of managing a wide range of grooming tasks, not to mention receiving lots of positive consumer reviews, it's our choice as the best luxury beard trimmer.
Featuring self-sharpening blades and Philips' DualCut technology, the Multigroom is capable of cutting in two directions. It lets you shave hair as short as 0.5mm, plus it comes with a 3-7mm adjustable beard comb and two stubble combs. Other attachments include a detail trimmer, precision shaver, nose and ear hair trimmer, and two body combs, providing a huge range of tools to tackle all your grooming needs.
If you're searching for a beard trimmer that can help you get your stubble just right, the Wahl Stainless Steel Lithium Ion Beard Trimmer is well worth a closer look.
This trimmer comes with four detachable heads: a T-blade to cut hair as well as edge and shave; a trimmer blade to tackle your stubble, beard, sideburns and body hair; a detail shaver for finer detailing work; and an ear and nose trimmer.
This Wahl trimmer allows you to cut hair to lengths between 0.2mm and 25mm, offers a four-hour runtime and comes with a matching storage stand.
The Braun BT5060 boasts plenty of positive customer reviews and a number of features to help you trim your beard to perfection. Featuring a precision dial and two combs, the BT5060 allows you to choose 39 different length settings between 0.5mm and 20mm – just use the precision dial to select your desired length.
This trimmer also features an auto-sensing motor designed to keep its speed constant when tackling hair of different thicknesses. It's also fully washable under running water. And with a 1-hour recharge providing 100 minutes of trimming time, it could be a very useful addition to your bathroom.
The compact size of the Philips OneBlade Pro that was our best overall pick also makes it well worth considering as a travel trimmer. But if you're looking for something a little cheaper and very practical for use on the go, there's a lot to like about the Wahl Precision Beard Trimmer.
Because it's powered by two AA batteries, you don't need to worry about adaptors and different power sockets when travelling overseas. It's also lightweight and compact for packing in your travel bag, and it comes with a guide comb that locks into 6 different positions between 2mm and 12mm. It also features three separate guide combs for cutting lengths of 1.6mm, 3.2mm and 4.8mm.
It's no surprise that Wahl won this year's Finder Award for the best beard trimmer, given it topped every category. 95% of Aussies recommend Wahl, thanks to its great trimming performance, safety, ease of use and value for money.
You've managed to keep your beard in check using a razor and shaving cream for most of your life, so why would you want to spend your hard-earned on a beard trimmer?
While they might be an unnecessary expense for some, if you spend a lot of time trying to achieve the perfect facial hair, a beard trimmer could be a wise investment. Electric trimmers are gentler on your skin than regular razors, reducing the risk of shaving cuts and irritation.
Beard trimmers are designed to get your beard looking just right, regardless of whether you're sculpting the perfect stubble or keeping a long, unruly beard in check. Regular trimming can also get rid of split ends – yep, they affect beards too – and help promote beard growth.
Some beard trimmers are designed to do exactly what their name suggests and nothing more. Other "all-in-one" models are designed to take care of a variety of grooming and trimming needs, including removing hair from your nose, ears and head as well as styling your beard. Some can even be used on your body to take care of any "manscaping" requirements you may have.
Another factor you'll need to consider is where the trimmer can be used. Some models must be kept dry, but many trimmers these days are suitable for wet and dry use – so you can take them in the shower.
You can pick up an entry-level beard trimmer for around $20, while top-of-the line wet/dry trimmers can retail for as much as $300.
Compare beard trimmers across the following categories to find the shaver that's right for your needs.
Check what attachments the trimmer comes with and the lengths to which they allow you to trim your facial hair. Cutting lengths generally range from around 1mm to 20mm, with many models also including a 0.5mm option for precision trimming.
Check how practical the trimmer will be to use on a day-to-day basis. Is the trimmer easy to grip firmly to prevent any beard-trimming blunders? Does it come with a stand or charging dock you can use for storage? Is it easy to change cutting lengths and change attachments?
Check whether the trimmer features a rechargeable battery, uses AA/AAA batteries, or whether it needs to be plugged into a power socket while in use. Wrangling a cord in a tight bathroom can be a hassle, so most buyers tend to opt for cordless models. If you regularly travel and need a shaver on the go, look for a cordless model.
If there is a battery in your beard trimmer, how much shaving time can you expect out of one charge? Look for a model that offers a minimum of an hour's use when fully charged and also remember to check the amount of charging time required.
Check what you'll need to do to keep the trimmer clean and working properly. Some models allow you to remove the blades and guards and rinse them in water, while other trimmers are completely waterproof. You can also use the little brush that comes with most trimmers to clean away hair.
Many trimmers come with a small bottle of oil that needs to be applied to the blades regularly to keep them functioning at their best. However, some have self-sharpening blades that remove the need for replacement blades and regular oiling.
