Ahhh beard trimming. It’s the time of year where male grooming needs to sharpen up and embrace the colder months (except for you Australian readers – grrr).
Lucky for me ( and my face fuzz) I’ve managed to get my mitts on the at home Wahl Lithium Blitz Beard Trimmer for review. Backstage at fashion week or in TV I see hairdressers and barbers using Wahl clippers EVERYWHERE. Wahl is one of the go to brands when it comes to beard and hair trimming for men – have a look in your local barber, I’d be amazed if you don’t spot a Wahl.
Mainly a grooming brand sold into the professional market, the Wahl Lithium Blitz Beard Trimmer has been designed for consumer use (aka for mugs like me). As a man who has experienced a beard trimmer running out of battery half way through a trim – I kid you not, this happened in Ireland roughly 1 hour before I was due to do live television, I am always SO scared of being in that situation again and usually swerve toward having my beard trimmed professionally – you can see where I go on my social media channels (Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat – @julesvonhep). The Wahl Lithium Blitz Beard Trimmer boasts an impressive 240 minutes trimming time after a 1 hour charge so the chances of that happening again to me whilst overseas are minimal – HURRAH!
The Wahl at home beard trimmer comes equipped with guards, brushes, oils the usual trimming gang. What I love about the Wahl trimmer is that the head is wider than most other trimmers on the market, meaning if your beard trimming in a rush, it’s so much quicker to cover vast amounts of area. I usually trim on #2:3/16” clipper – I find it offers the perfect no-trim-trim. The beard trimmer is much easier to use than many others I’ve tested in the past and the results were even and I was left fuzz free. WIN.
When it comes to beard trimming always shave in the direction of your hair growth, and go over the same area a few times to ensure a uniform hair length. Remember it is best to start with a longer clipper setting a first if using a new trimmer.
Hope you enjoyed this beard trimmer review!
