When it comes to keeping a beard or hairstyle neatly groomed, there is no substitute for an electric trimmer. It puts the power of a professional barber right in your own hands to subdue shaggy sideburns, overgrown mustaches, or any other hirsute region begging for attention. Here are three features you’ll want to consider when looking for an electric beard trimmer.

At minimum, an electric trimmer should have both a fine and a coarse cutting blade. Ideally, it will also include an attachment for skin-close shaving, as well as a narrow head for fine trimming, shaping, and etching.

You can’t have too many blade guards. From fading combs for sideburns and temples to body, beard, and stubble guards, each one has a specific profile and depth of cut to achieve whatever look you are going for.

Among the many cutting blades available with an electric trimmer, the nose/ear attachment is perhaps the most undervalued. But when it comes to weed-whacking troublesome foliage of the nostrils and ears, only a tool designed specifically for that unique terrain will suffice. To own one is to love one.
