The Best Hair Clippers To Trim Your Beard With

Maybe you're looking to save money or maybe you just don't want cluttered bathroom. Whatever the case, it's perfectly reasonable to want clippers that will also trim your beard. I'll show you a few clippers that I use for trimming my beard and that can also be used to cut your hair to a reasonable standard.

Things We Looked For

I want clippers that can handle the job of cutting my beard so they have to fit into a few buckets in order to work


A lot of hair clippers are really big and cumbersome, so they might not be the best for cutting the beard hair under your lip. I've struggled with some electric shavers that are too big to comfortable fit under my lip


Some men like their beard hair low and some men like their beard hair long. Whatever the case, it's important to have enough attachments to fit your specific needs.


Hair clippers to trim your beard have to be able to cut hair reasonably well as they will serve a dual purpose.

The Wahl elite pro is definitely more clipper than it is beard trimmer. This version of clipper is definitely geared towards the needs of a more serious hair cutter. While the pro name is definitely an indication that these can cut some hair, it shouldn't turn you off from using them to trim your beard.

The finish on these clippers is premium and the attachments have a more premium look and feel to them as well.

Wahl makes an absolutely great product and this is about as nice of a hair clipper that I would want to use to trim my beard.

This is the all in one clipper, and hair cutting kit from Wahl. It has the benefit of being easy to use but because it's made from less premium materials, they can afford to include every attachment you'll ever need in one value kit.

I included this option for those who really just want a good kid that's going to have both a hair clipper and a hair clipper for trimming your beard. Sometimes the option is just to find a decent kit that will do both.

This batter powered combo is going to serve both functions. There is a unit for trimming both your beard and clippers for cutting your hair. Obviously at this price point you're not getting the best version of each, but you're not really compromising on the size functionality of either.

The kit comes with basically everything you need to cut your hair and the additional attachment for your beard works wonders on the tight areas beneath your nose for getting after your mustache.

Anyone that really doesn't want to have a one size fits all clipper and doesn't mind a good value clipper and beard trimmer combo.


  • Good combo kit with both beard trimmer and clipper
  • Great value for money


  • Neither the clipper nor the beard trimmer are the best version of themselves
  • Soft storage case
