THE FIRST step to a righteous beard? Grow one. Like, don’t touch your facial hair at all for several months. The second step—once you have enough length—trim it up. The first step is definitely the hardest, but the second comes with its own challenges. Whether you want a long, flowing beard or something shorter and cleaner, keeping your beard style in shape ensures that it not only looks great, but your whiskers stay healthy.

But in order to do that, you need the proper tools. Namely, a beard trimmer. Most beard trimmers come with multiple length options that allow you to easily cut your beard to the exact length you want and shape it however you desire. The trick is, especially the first time you trim, to start longer than you think you’ll want. You can always cut it shorter, but if you go too short, your only option is to wait for it to grow.

Length possibilities are the most important part of choosing the right beard trimmer, but there are other things to consider as well. Like how coarse your beard is—if it’s very thick, you’ll need a more powerful trimmer. If you’re new to growing a beard, you might want to go on the simpler side to make sure you get the hang of beard trimming before you invest. And if you’re a beard veteran, you may want to go with something more professional grade and fly without the protection of guards.
