Self-care is intrinsic to mankind. However, a decade ago looking good was practically the domain of women. Style and fashion were shunned by men primarily as it was thought that dynamic men did not need self-care. Turns out, with dynamism and power, all men now go that extra mile to appear dashing to the world. If yesterday’s man thought a beard was a sign of machoism, today’s metrosexual man sports a sassy stubble to stand out from the crowd.
Yes! Facial hair is back and it’s here to stay. While men take pride in their appearance, some tools and products help them in their bid. Trimmers and shavers, therefore, take a place of importance on a man’s dresser. Men who want to sport the right look and a dashing beard are more than willing to spend the time to achieve it.
Now let’s get to the million-dollar question. What exactly is the difference between trimmers and shavers? Here’s what it is:
- Essentially, trimmers are used to shorten hair, whereas shavers are used to cut or remove hair.
- Trimmers will give your hair the desired shape whereas shavers will remove the hair completely
- Shavers give a much smoother shave as compared to trimmers
- Trimmers come with attachments that enable style whereas shavers do not provide these add-ons.
- Trimmers use a foil to enable cutting whereas shavers use rotary blades
Depending on whether you want to style your beard or trim it, you can opt from a plethora of trimmers and shavers. Here’s our list to help you decide more quicker:
