The Remington Beard Trimmer provides the ultimate grooming experience. Fitted with ceramic coated cutting blades you can choose from the 9 different cutting grades to give the precision style and look you are after. The advantage of having ceramic blades over steel is they will last longer (not rust) and because they are self sharpening you will not have to worry about the blades losing their cutting quality. The silica that is mixed in with the ceramic coating tends to make the blades more robust in the long run The 9 nine various lengths that can be achieved range from 1.5mm, which will give you an almost clean shaven look right up to 11.5mm beard oil.
If you are familiar with the hair grading scale these measurements translate to 0.5 through to grade 4. In order to to get precision detailing of your beard the Remington Beard Trimmer also has a pop out trimmer. To select the desired grade just use the zoom wheel and check it is correct via the clear view window installed on the body.
Unlike other Beard Trimmers available the Remington cutting blades never need to be oiled, so no more messy clean up required. You can use it right out of the box. To ensure complete control when using the Remington the housing has rubberized anti-slip grips. Once fully charged you should be able to achieve around 40 mins of continuous use, and as an aid there is a handy charge indicator fitted so you can see the state of battery.
Extras that also come when you purchase your Remington are – a pouch to store when not in use, a barber style beard comb and to help keep your Trimmer in top condition a cleaning brush is included as well. Remington have been making all varieties of grooming equipment for many years (over 70) and are innovators in design and technology.
One of the basic feature is that it should be a rechargeable device. There are cheap battery operated beard trimmers for men available, however, after having trimmed only half of your beard the batteries die out and you will be sporting a very unkempt look. Look for devices with long-lasting lithium batteries. Make sure the trimmer has at least four detachable combs. This ensures you a nice trim beard at a desired length. Of the combs, one of the combs should be small so that you can have a stubble look. The blades should be of carbon steel so that it will have a long service life. It should be robust but easy to use.
What will a decent beard trimmer cost?
A cordless battery operated trimmer costs in the range of $30. However, for about $45, you can get a good brand such as Wahl, Braun and Remington with all the extras such as charger, comb attachments and a case. The top end beard trimmers for men have a lot of useful features, including a small vacuum for sucking in hair as it trims. These top end trimmers cost in the range of $50 to $60.
A trimmer in itself will give your beard a neat look, but the edges need a bit of extra attention. You should also purchase some straight edge razors. With these razors you can pay attention to the neck, nose and chin. By using the razor, you can shave the outer edges of your beard to have a neat, clean-cut border. A well-trimmed beard, with neat borders will make it look well-groomed. The trimmer blades will need oil for lubrication and some light oil is needed in your kit. It should be used only sparingly.
