Wahl Lithium Ion Vacuum TrimmerGET IT
I’m going to guess if you’re a guy under the age of 35 that you’re likely nurturing a beard that lives somewhere between a 5 o’clock shadow and the point when significant other keeps asking “When are you going to shave that thing?” Like you, I’m in the perma-stubble camp and for years I kept a 1/8-inch guide affixed to a bulky, full-size trimmer—the sort your barber might use—to mow my face down each Monday. It works, but the head’s wide and not easy to articulate, it’s loud, and it leaves a mess in the sink.
All reasons why you should upgrade to this Wahl vacuum trimmer—and I know, it sounds infomercialish to have a beard trimmer-Hoover hybrid. But it works: Nearly all the clippings get sucked into a little, removable mesh trap and the first few times I had to stop and look inside just to prove to myself it was working because you can barely feel it cutting and there’s no mess. The kit has all the guides you need, the buzzer is just over a pound in weight and runs pretty quiet, and it lasts about 90 minutes before needing a recharge. —Sal Vaglica, Senior Editor
