What is a Hair Trimmer?

Well, hair trimmers do trim hair, indeed. Specifically, hair trimmers remove unwanted hair on the face, head or other parts of the body. Hair trimmers are ideal for sideburns, beards, moustaches, as well as tidying up hairlines and necklines. There are two types of hair trimmers: battery operated and main electricity trimmers.

What are Hair Trimmer Results Like?

Think clean. Hair trimmers create a clean finish for the neck and ears, or a manicured, structured look for facial hair. This is the beauty of hair trimmers: hair can still be present but the desired length of hair is customisable. Trimmed facial hair on men is the Hollywood look, thanks to David Beckham, Justin Timberlake, Brad Pitt and Johnny Depp.

Is a Hair Trimmer Different from a Beard Trimmer?

Nope, exactly the same.

What’s the Difference Between a Hair Trimmer and a Hair Clipper?

Good question! Hair clippers remove the bulk of hair from your head or even shave your head completely. In barber parlance, hair clippers are referred to as #1, #2, #3. The number refers to the attachment added to the hair clipper and specifies a certain length of hair.

While hair trimmers can also be used with attachments for desired hair length, generally a true hair clipper is needed for cutting your whole head of hair as hair trimmers are not designed for such a purpose. Hair trimmers are more of a finishing tool or tidy up. However, sometimes hair clipper and hair trimmer terms are used interchangeably.

What are Comb Attachments?

Comb attachments cut hair to a desired length. For example, the Silver Bullet Metro Hair Trimmer features a choice of lengths of 12.7mm (1/2”), 6.3mm (1/4”), 3.2mm (1/8”) and 1.5mm (1/16”) to suit your needs. Attachment combs are clipped over the trimmer blades to prevent direct contact with skin. For complete hair removal, no comb attachments are needed. Comb attachments are a breeze to use. Simply clip on and you’re guaranteed even results.

What are the Hair Trimmer Options Out There?

Battery operated hair trimmers, cordless or smaller, usually take AA or AAA batteries. They are ideal for travel, if you’re short on bathroom space, or you only need minimal trimming. Recommended: Silver Bullet Mini Clipper
