What is a Professional Beard Trimmer?

A beard has been the most on-trend accessory men can maintain for several seasons. For this very reason, a beard trimmer is justly considered as an essential tool for every man. It doesn't matter whether you need to trim your full beard, detail it, or want to get a 3-day stubble look, the right trimming tool will come in handy. But what really differs professional clippers from those used for personal use? They are much more powerful and can be used throughout a whole day. Professional beard and mustache trimmers cut through any hair type easily. Having used a professional trimmer just once, you will see a huge difference. For sure, you'd never want to return to those standard models.

Some people prefer using corded trimmers while others give their preference to rechargeable models. Of course, none of the trimmers that run on batteries can beat corded models in power, yet cordless models are easier to maneuver when trimming in hard-to-reach areas. We recommend you to opt for a model that has an ergonomic design making a tool easy to hold and use. As for the guides, combs, and attachments, you can always purchase them additionally, but, of course, it's a great plus if the set already includes some.

We would also recommend you to look through our review of the best hair clippers that will make you look amazing.

Remington MB-200

Great Trimmer at an Affordable Price

The cordless beard trimmer from Remington is one of the simplest devices on the market. You can adjust the cutting length even without changing guide combs. The thing is that the trimmer comes fitted with 1 comb offering 9 different length settings (from 1.5 mm to 18 mm) that can be changed with a zoom wheel. The wheel gets securely locked once you set the desired length. You can be sure that you won't jump to lower or higher setting accidentally during the use.

As for the blades, they are coated with titanium and guarantee smooth trimming without pulling. Moreover, the blades are-self-sharpening and require no lubrication. They can be simply rinsed under running water after each trimming session. The trimmer cannot be used while it's charging, so it is better to juice the tool up in advance. The full charge takes from 14 to 16 hours.

Pros:

  • Titanium coated self-sharpening blades;
  • Zoom wheel for choosing the length setting from 1.5 to 18 mm.
