The Search for the Best Cordless Bread Trimmer

I’ve been looking for a cordless beard trimmer that not only works great but won’t break my budget for quite some time. I can’t stand trimmers that you charger for hours that give you only give you 15 minutes of battery life. I travel a lot for work and have realized that not every hotel bathroom features electrical plugs in the best position nor are they built to allow for a high wattage of power. Most Hotel electrical plugs have built-in breakers that shut off if you’re using too much wattage. For these reasons, I knew I was done with plugs altogether and wanted cordless beard trimmer.

I researched all of the Wahl Beard trimmers and was amazed they offer so many different versions. The chart below is an excellent comparison of the top six Wahl Beard Trimmers.

Beard Shaping Tool: A Helpful Guide To Grooming a Beard

Beard Shaping Tool

Beard Grooming can be challenging, especially when trying to get clean lines along your neckline or blend the cheek line on the top of your beard.

Luckily, with help from a cleverly designed beard trimming tool, you can easily get the shape you want every time.

Now I know some of you bearded freaks may stick your nose up at this beard shaping tool, but getting a professionally leveled trim without your barber’s costly services is a pretty smart investment. I’m not suggesting you walk away from your trusted barber or anything, I’m just saying these beard grooming tools are inexpensive and a handy item to toss into your beard grooming kit.

9 Beard Grooming Kits Every Man Would Love

Beard Grooming Kits

Beard and Mustache Care Kits

Beard Grooming Kits are a bundle of items that guys love to buy for themselves or receive as a gift. For those not familiar with making a beard grooming purchase, the beard kit takes the pressure off buying the wrong item; as it lumps together a few things like a fruit basket. Wow? Did I just describe a manly box of awesome beard grooming items to a fruit basket? I really could have thought of a better analogy, but truthfully, it works.

Obviously, a beard grooming kit doesn’t include a basket; the kit usually revolves around a cool, stylish wooden box that can be used to keep all the new grooming care items together. These boxes, or kits, come in a wide range of designs, and most of the time the box itself is as great as the items in it.

For years, I had a bad habit of leaving my beard grooming products scattered around our washroom. There’s a window ledge in the en-suite bathroom of our bedroom where I would leave brushes, balms, and scissors laying about. My wife hated it, as it would be the first thing one would see when you walked into the bathroom. I always stood my ground but secretly hated having all my stuff so unorganized. So, last year when I received a beard kit from my wife for Christmas, she said the gift comes with a project. She asked me to add a couple of small shelves in our washroom to free up and organize my beard stuff. It took no time at all and gave me a little corner of the washroom all for my stuff, including my kickass beard grooming kit.

What’s in a Beard Grooming Kit?

Beard Grooming KitsMost beard kits include a new brush or wooden comb, some creams such as a beard balm or oil along with maybe some grooming tools like scissors. When looking for a beard kit, try not to be fooled by the box sets with too many things. Ideally, you’re after a beard grooming kit with four to five items. In fact, sometimes less is more, as you get more quality beard items rather than a bunch of stuff you won’t use.

When picking a beard grooming kit, always read the reviews and don’t get fooled my brands with heavy design. Branding in this industry plays a significant role in salesmanship. What you’re really after are reviews of the items by people who have purchased them before. Amazon is perfect for this.

If you’re concerned about the price, add up the cost of all the items individually in the beard grooming kit then factor in the expense of the box it comes in. Most of the time you’re going to get a deal by buying things as a group, but sometimes the box is a lot more than what it’s worth.

5 Wooden Beard Comb Designs With Style

The Wooden Beard Comb

There’s something cool about having a stylish wooden beard comb that’s hard to put into words. Aside from that obvious satisfying feeling of running it through your beard or the collectible appeal of having yet another elegant men’s grooming product in your possession, there’s a calming feeling, an almost self-medicating aspect to combing your beard. While everyone else reaches for their iPhone or starts puffing on an ECIG, you can take a relaxing moment and zone out from the chaotic world.

Combing your beard, in the right context, can also be viewed as very sexy. You know, that casual moment you break out your comb and stroke your beard when you know the girl across the pub is checking you out. She’s noticing your manly beard and sees that you take the time to groom it. Your high-quality wooden bead comb says a lot about you. You show dedication to your craft. You show you can take excellent care of the things that you’re interested in, and you won’t settle for crappy products.

You may think I’m laying it on thick, but I’m not. Women – and Men – notice all kinds of things you wouldn’t usually think about. Your shoes for example. I remember an old girlfriend told me that she would notice and Man’s smile, then look for a wedding ring right before checking to see the condition of a guy’s shoes. Her logic was that if he took care of his feet, the part of the body that we all use the most, then he was well-kept and clean. He was a “keeper.” Women care about a man being clean, and for some reason, men have trouble remembering that. A scruffy, unkempt beard is not helping your cause. Sure, it’s cool you have a beard, but your Sex appeal goes through the roof if you can present your beard in an impeccable stylish manner.

Beards in the Workplace: Have it All

Beards in the Workplace 2017

Beards in the WorkplaceEverywhere you look, a beard or mustache is being sported. It stands to say that facial hair has come a long way from previous notions of the clean-shaven aristocrat parading around the office. You might even say that Beards in the workplace are taking over.

Whether a beard is acceptable for a job is still as much of a mystery as what is inside of a thick beard. Newer industries tend to be more accepting of the haired-look, and older areas still have that fondness for cleanness.

But why? The reason for this vagueness is the perception of a beard versus no beard. Beards will have others talk to you about maturity, confidence, or the art of growing a beard. Coming from a face that has grown significant amounts of facial hair since 16, trust me—there is no better way to get strangers to talk to you than having a beard. On the other hand, being clean shaven still, holds a lot of respect within society. Who’s the last empowered political figure that you’ve seen with a beard? There’s a reason for that. Read More

We took photos of my son sporting the thick black eyebrows and mustache and posted them on Facebook. The relatives didn’t think they we’re all that hilarious, but to a couple of sleep deprived new parents, we laughed so hard tears rolled down our faces.  Read More

Beards For Round Faces: Add Length and Character to Your Look

beards for round faces

One of the biggest mistakes I ever made while grooming my beard was not paying attention to the guard I put on my razor. I was in a rush or just distracted and wasn’t focusing on the guard size. As a result, I mistakenly shaved my beard too short right before a good friend’s wedding. I had a nice, full beard and grew a custom to my face. Aside from being pissed off that I had screwed up and cut my beard too short, I also sadly discovered my face was a lot more round than I remembered it. My wife and I have a couple of kids, and I must have put on a little weight from the added stress of taking care of children or the lack of time to go to the gym over the last few years. I never realized I had such a round face until I shaved my beard too short. Read More

Beard Oil Benefits

Beard Oil 101

Beard OilYou’ve got the goatie or long beard, complete trimmer set, special comb and beard guide, what else is missing?

For the love of beard, get some beard oil for that final moisturizing touch. It’s the final part of the vain man’s beard routine – wash, trim, shape, and rubabdub some magic oil. You’ll need beard oil for two reasons: the awesome scent that amplifies your manly charm, and its magical power that makes your beard smooth and soft.

As a beard grower, you don’t want your awesome hair to grow frizzy, coarse and with split ends. Even you will be disgusted to touch coarse and unkempt hair, and how much more other people? Dry hair is caused by lack of vitamin E and B, and is very common during winter season. At worse conditions, you’ll get brittle and dull hair, with unwanted dandruff falling off your chin. Proper maintenance and grooming routine can avoid this, and will keep your manly beard looking clean and full of mojo.
