About this deal

After that it’s a case of how much you want to spend on precision tools for styling your beard and trimming the hair on your head and body. Testers were impressed with how sharp the blade remained during the trial, leaving their beards looking neat and tidy throughout. Some models come with detachable heads that can be rinsed under water for quick and effortless cleaning. Philips OneBlade is an innovative new take on how an electric shaver should work and what it should do.

I find the area above the lip hellishly difficult to get right and that Wahl Aqua Blade made it so much easier. Having experimented with hair clippers during lockdown and various disastrous at-home haircuts,” Stephen says, “it’s clear that beard trimmers are far more adept at gliding around difficult areas of the face and jaw. If you like to spend your time perfecting your beard in the morning, you’ll want a long battery life to keep up with your intricate routine. Solid and reliable, Remington’s X5 clipper doesn’t just stand out because of its turquoise and black colourway, but because of its performance too. It certainly feels odd in the hand at first, though you quickly get used to it, and its shape actually makes it easier to use on the back of the head and around the nape.

For overall value-for-money, performance and reliability, we couldn’t fault Wahl’s colour pro lithium ion hair clipper. As it’s so small, it also means it works rather better as a shaper (or styler, as in the name), than for removing vasts swathes of hair. The series 9 is still by far the best thing I've ever used for head shaving, But we are talking about face here so that's a different story and I'll get back on topic. It’s best to go for smaller, lighter-weight beard trimmers that come with a cordless rechargeable option, which will help both speed and accuracy. Trying to shave the groin with a push-style groomer is in my experience more cumbersome (you have less leverage) and more time-consuming.

But if you’re in a rush, here’s a quick look at my top five: Which are the best beard trimmers in 2024?

No such worries with this one, the Series 9 feels expensive and is the perfect shape to get a good grip on. As you might expect from the hair clipper with the lowest RRP here this no-frills model from Braun eschews fancy functionality, add-ons and accessories in favour of does-what-it-say-on-the-tin simplicity, which is its strongest suit. When trimming our hair, we looked at how easy the clippers were to use, battery life, design, noise and vibration and, of course, its performance in achieving the desired results.

They were pleased with the battery life and found the adjustable dial eliminated the typical ‘faffing’ they’re used to with changing heads. But unlike the fixed head of the 5000, the Bodygroom 7000 has a flexible head, allowing it to swivel during a stroke. The Precision Dial Comb can be set to specific lengths and the angle of the blades can be tweaked, allowing you to use different settings to achieve the holy grail of that lovely faded look. The SkinGuard comb protects skin from the blade-for a comfortable shave that's close enough to look great while staying gentle on skin.

The battery life of the Philips Bodygroom 5000 is pretty solid as well at 60 minutes of cordless use. QP2530/30 has Lithium-ion battery which lasts 60 minutes which needs four-hour charging while others models like QP6510/30 and QP6520/30 needs only one-hour charging for a longer time of usage 60 minutes and 90 minutes respectively.
