Maintaining a beard and moustache requires regular grooming care with use of a hair trimmer or shaver. While there are many trimmers on the market, what works best for one man may vary for the next, as there are many different needs for the styles of beards. Adjustable cutting lengths may be more important to those growing longer beards. Likewise, thicker and coarser beards will have different needs than finer, softer ones. Consider the factors presented in these brand choices when making a decision.

Remington MB 200 Trimmer

The Remington MB 200 is a cordless, rechargeable beard trimmer. It is not water-resistant and is meant for dry use only. This model has titanium-coated blades, which are supposed to provide a superior trim. It operates with a choice of nine length settings. Users of this model find it's good for shaving the short hairs from the face and for styling a goatee. In contrast, complaints include having a short battery life and missing difficult neck hairs. The product comes with a two-year warranty.

Wahl 79524 Trimmer

The Wahl 79529 trimmer comes with a five- year warranty. It uses a cord. The clippers are equipped with a high-speed PowerDrive motor, and its design is intended to provide a smoother cut on thick hair. The motor itself is relatively quiet and lightweight, given its power. The comfortable grip is easy to hold for extended periods, and a "Dura Chrome" finish adds a retro barbershop appeal. The clippers use high-carbon steel blades, which are permanently aligned and should never require adjusting. The clippers are also detachable for cleaning. The trimmer comes with ten adjustable guide combs. A thumb-operated, sliding switch makes it easy to adjust the combs to the desired cutting height.

Wahl 9971700 Trimmer

Wahl makes a cordless, battery-powered trimmer, which is compact and perfect for travel--the Wahl 9971700 trimmer. Yet it still provides the power of a full-size trimmer. This beard and moustache trimmer has six position length guides for trimming stubble to shag. Its contoured shape and soft touch nestles in the palm, making it easy to use. Its high-carbon steel blades are precision-honed and self-sharpening. Users say it works well on thick, curly hair.

Andis AS-1 Trimmer

The Andis AS-1 corded trimmer can also be charged. Its design incorporates cutting-edge technology to provide an ultra-close, ultra-smooth shave. This trimmer is recommended for short and close-cropped styles. Its hypoallergenic, micro-thin titanium foils and high-speed, precision cutting heads are designed to glide over skin while trimming moustaches, sideburns and beards. The machined cutters are not supposed to clog and are designed to rinse clean quickly and easily. The use of enlarged foil holes enhance the trimmer's performance, enabling it to shave closer.
