Which is the best beard trimmer for maintaining stubble?

One of the simplest beard styles out there, a stylish stubble beard is the ideal way to trim 3 days' worth of growth into something that still looks naturally well-groomed.

While this style may be minimal, without the right tools you'll struggle to get a consistent smart stubble between 1mm and 3mm in length. If you want to know how to style a stubble, our guide recommends this even length.

To keep this rugged look groomed and sharp, one of the best men's beard trimmers is the BT9441 Pro Beard Trimmer. This is the best tool for the job of maintaining stubble thanks to its precision dial. This professional beard trimmer is equipped with 40 length settings arranged in 0.5 mm steps for the ultimate in precision. Use the handy Memory Lock to lock your setting selection avoid any unwanted errors.

What's more, the BT9441 Series 9 is one of the best beard trimmers for stubble because it benefits from AutoSense technology. This adapts to your beard's density for a perfectly even look. Coupled with its updated lifetime sharp ProBlade, this rugged unit is built to last.

Which beard trimmer is best for longer beards?

If you've outgrown a stubble look and want to know how to shape a beard that takes longer to grow, be ready to have some patience. For a thick and full beard, you can expect hair to grow around half an inch every month. So, if you're hoping to style a hipster look or Viking beard, it'll take more than a few days to reach your goals.

But what should you look for in a beard trimmer set for longer beards? As you won't be shaving this down to your skin's surface, you'll want a wide range of attachable combs to customize lengths as you need.

The Braun beard trimmer BT9441 is a great choice for longer beards as it comes with no fewer than 11 different premium barbering tools. These include a pair of beard fading combs, two adjustable combs and beard stencil. Use them to achieve smooth fades and even trims for perfect finishes. They'll also help you to tackle any unwanted overgrowth and keep a long beard looking symmetrical and stylish, maintaining it at any length you want.

Which beard trimmer is best for short beards?

If you're not ready to wait around for a longer beard or think it may not complement your face shape, there are plenty of stripped-back styles to choose from. We'd suggest growing out a short beard should take around 4 to 6 weeks for most men.

Once you're ready to work that growth into a short beard style, you may be tempted by a low or short boxed beard. Both these looks are all about carefully sculpted edging for symmetrical and striking beard styles.

If you're wondering how to shape a beard of the shorter variety, Braun's beard trimmer sets have an option with this in mind. We'd also recommend the Braun beard trimmer BT9 series for short beards. As it is one of the best men's beard trimmers for stubble and long beards, it can also cope equally well with short beards. Its precision rotary dial will help you to maintain the shortened look of a closer cut beard while the powerful Li-Ion battery it is supplied with means you can enjoy up to 180 minutes of sustainable cordless runtime.

Tools you will need

Which beard trimmer is best for other beard types?

As we all know, no two men are the same and you may want to sport a beard style that doesn't fit into these categories. A goatee is a classic beard style that's ideal for men with a square jaw that may be hidden by longer facial hair looks.

To highlight these natural angular features, one of the best beard trimmers around is the Braun BT9 Pro Series. It comes with a Detail Pro Head. Use it for styling your jawline, moustache or goatee. With beard fading combs and adjustable combs as well as its aforementioned rotary dial control, you'll be 100% in control.

With AutoSense technology, this trimmer will help if you're struggling with patchy beard growth, it will catch tricky hairs that others might miss.

Optimum battery life for beard trimmers

When choosing a rechargeable beard trimmer, it's also a must to consider your battery needs. Luckily, modern models are designed around men's needs and their busy lifestyles.

With one full charge, the long-lasting Lithium-Ion battery of the Braun beard trimmer BT9441 delivers up to three hours (180 minutes) of trimming making it the best professional beard trimmer for power, too. With one, you won't need to worry about charging ahead of each use. Even better, it comes supplied with its own charging stand.

Waterproofing and Maintenance of Beard Trimmers

While manual razor heads should be replaced regularly after the blades become dull, cordless beard trimmers don't suffer from this problem.

In fact, Braun beard trimmers feature lifetime sharp blades. To ensure they match this lifespan, you should use a blade wash solution after you're done trimming to maintain your beard trimming device.

Rinsing thoroughly is also recommended as clogged blades won't last as long. Some of our beard trimmers, such as the BT9441, offer wet and dry usage so if you like to trim in the shower, then be sure to look out for this feature.
