Top 3 Goatee and Beard Trimmers

Updated on May 28, 2010

Everyone knows goatees are sexy, right? There are times when a goatee doesn't suit a man's face, but even then they can usually be trimmed a bit differently with fabulous results. Goatees are rugged and manly and many women love them; particularly those who like the bad boy look. What isn't sexy, however, is a scraggly goatee, stash or beard. If you've got a goatee, you need to maintain it properly or most women are not going to entertain dirty thoughts about where that goatee might end up later. Therefore, it's absolutely essential that you take good care of your facial hair. You needn't necessarily use the most expensive goatee trimmer, but you should get one that works well. And before you suggest otherwise, I maintained my ex's goatee for 5 years, and I know what goatee maintenance involves, and I know how the gadgets work.

Philips Norelco Turbo Vacuum Trimmer

This Philips Norelco Turbo Vacuum Trimmer is amazing and super futuristic. The blades are self-sharpening and come with 9 lockable length options (lockable is so important, and you know this if you've ever accidentally shortened the setting and took way more off than you meant to!) But one of the coolest things about this goatee trimmer is that it sucks the hair into a see-through chamber which you then empty when full. This is so much better than cleaning up all those obnoxious little hairs. Rechargeable battery and it's cordless, too. Only meant for dry use and only meant for the face.

Wahl Groomsman Beard and Mustache Trimmer

This Wahl Groomsman Trimmer comes with a beard regulator to help you maintain the shape you want. It has 6 memory settings and can be used for the beard, sideburns and mustache. Can be used whilst plugged in or go cordless with its very long lasting (3-5 years) battery. Does not pull and works well with thick, stubborn hair.

Wahl All in One Trimmer

One of the coolest things about the Wahl All-in-One Trimmer is the 5 minute Fast Charge. Granted, it takes an hour to charge fully, but if you've ever forgotten to charge up overnight, you know how annoying it can be to wait eons for your electronic razor or trimmer to juice up. Comes with 3 beard guides and can even be used on the eyebrows, ears and nose. As the name suggests, this does everything, including shave and clip your hair!

Goatee and Beard Trimming Tips:

  • Longer is better. If you trim your goatee or moustache too close, your woman will not enjoy having your face anywhere near any part of her for very long. Be mindful of this, please, as women do not enjoy getting shave burn from men.

  • Use the shave guard. A uniform hair length is far more attractive than a scraggly one. Be sure to make the most of your shave guards; they work wonders.

  • If you'd like to trim your chest hair, you'd be better off getting a body hair trimmer to better cope with the larger volume of hair.

  • Keep it clean. If you don't, the hair can build up rather quickly, which could make it impossible to trim properly.

  • Size matters. Pay attention to how wide and well-formed your goatee or beard is. You don't want to look like Buffalo Bill, but you don't want the hair to be so sparse that it's invisible, either.
