6 Things To Consider Before Buying A Trimmer:
Let’s find the trimmer that works for you, before jumping into buying a trimmer you should consider a few options first. Purchasing the best trimmer isn’t always the most expensive on the market; rather, it’s what will do the best job for your beard or body hair. We broke down a shortlist of the critical components to fine-tune what you should be looking for in a trimmer to suit you best.
1. Universal Functionality:
The trimmers themselves come in various sizes along with adjustable guard attachments to scale down the length of hair on your beard. Choosing a trimmer that will work best in your daily life is a must, many times people go to the store and grab the first trimmer they see. In reality, you need to know the dimensions and which attachments or blades work best on your hair or skin type.
Having thick curly facial or body hair could overwork the trimmer and leave the blades dull and unmanageable over time. Ensure you’re getting a quality trimmer that can both withstand your hair texture and have enough durability to be considered an investment in the long run.
Being universal is fantastic, although being good at everything doesn’t make you the best at everything. If you need sheer cutting power, you might want to look at trimmers with a reasonable motor size that can cut your facial hair swiftly and without a pull. On the other hand, a lighter, more universal trimmer might be better to maintain body hair rather than waving around a bulky face trimmer around the corners of your body, for instance.
2. Corded & Cordless:
Corded trimmers are as the name suggests. These types of trimmers need a power cord to work properly. The advantage of a corded trimmer is that they are getting a continuous power to your trimmer, giving it strength and reliability when performing a trim. The only hassle is the cord itself and always having to be conscientious of it while trimming.
Cordless trimmers are ideal for functionality and make trimming your beard or body hair easier. Keep in mind cordless trimmers do use a battery, most of which use a lithium-Ion battery for strength and longevity. The life of trimmer batteries ranges from 60-90 mins on a full charge. Which, on average, is plenty of time to get yourself well-groomed and presentable.
Trimmers come with various guard sizes to help you get a flawless single length look and feel. Make sure you’re looking for a trimmer with multiple guard sizes to make your beard short, medium, or long. Most people use guards for precision work such as; goatee, full man chews, sideburns, and other stylized looks that need proper maintenance. Trimmer guards are essential in buying the trimmer set because some guards only work with a particular trimmer, and not all guards are universal.
Some trimmers cannot be used with water or have your beard or body hair wet at all. The blades on dry trimmers will start to rust and, over time, ruin your trimmers. Your facial or body hair must be completely dry before using it.
Whereas, wet trimmers such as the “Manscape Trimmer” work on both damp or dry hair. The wet trimmer option is, of course, your preference for using the trimmer. Most people enjoy a wet trimmer when standing in the shower, away from the showerhead. They can run a few easy passes with the trimmer over their face to maintain their hair length and quickly wash the hair off with the water.
***IMPORTANT*** Please note that wet trimmers are great at cutting damp hair because they use a ceramic blade that doesn’t rust or wear, this doesn’t make the overall trimmer device waterproof. Avoid submerging the trimmer by all means!
5. The 3 Types Of Blades:
Trimmer blades will make or break your idea of what you think of when it comes to a quality trimmer.
are longer lasting and more comfortable reducing irritations. Look for trimmers with many modules to get optimal results quickly with one or two passes.
Titanium is an exotic metal known for its durability making it a great blade that can be used for a lifetime if you take good care of it.
The third option is readily available to you if you don’t prefer titanium or stainless steel blades, known as ceramic blades. Ceramic trimmer blades aren’t steel or titanium but a chemical compound. Known as zirconium dioxide (ZrO2), this is done by dry pressing a firing zirconia powder into the material. The only way to sharpen this blade is with a diamond cutter.
Being able to pack light when you travel is essential to making any trip as minimal as possible. Make sure you find a trimmer that is both powerful enough to perform the trimming services, along with not be to bulky and unmanageable when placing the device into your luggage our bags.
