Can a traditional wet shave compare to a beard trimmer?

Can a traditional wet shave compare to a beard trimmer?

A traditional wet shave, to some is incomparable to anything else the finesse and functionality of a traditional wet shave can far outreach the expectations of the modern beard trimmer user. However is this still the case? Technology isn’t just advancing in your home, for your TV, for your mobile and your broadband modern utilities such as toothbrushes and yes even your beard trimmers are advancing faster than people realise making the chores of trimming your beard simpler than ever before, so with all of the advancements is there any need to go to your local barber and fork out £40 for a perfectly tailored wet shave?

Costs of Traditional Wet Shaving

I go back to my original point that for most comparing the two is somewhat irrelevant, there are many advantages to having a traditional wet shave if performed by yourself, although tricky can become very cost effective and having a sharper single blade can give you a closer shave than using a beard trimmer who’s smallest setting might only be used for beard maintenance as opposed to skin close styles. This is where round head shavers and multi-blade trimmers come in to really give you that baby skin finish.

When looking at the cost of a modern beard trimmer you are looking at anything from £15 up to £100 for a top of the line beard trimmer, conversely if you are looking at investing in a wet shave these can cost anything from £20-£40 per shave! If done by a trained professional. Investing in your own wet shave equipment can of course save you a few pounds but it isn’t a simple case of picking up a single blade razor and going to town, a traditional wet shave takes preparation and a steady hand to do things correctly and of course to avoid some disastrous mishaps.

Another advantage of a traditional wet shave is the use of a traditional shaving brush, which creates a finer lather and protects the skin from the irritation caused by multiple passes with a razor, ironically those who choose to simply trim their beards and not gain a close to the skin finish don’t run the risk of cutting themselves, rough shaving methods and the need to lather and fuss about with the time consuming wet shaving method, so ultimately it is up to you what you prefer?

Both are very popular ways of maintaining a beard or getting rid of one completely. Both have their pro’s and con’s, thanks for taking the time to read this article, feel free to leave your comments below and let us know what you thought of beard trimmers vs. traditional wet shaves.

Famous cartoon beards

22 October 2012

Taking a step back on seriousness for today, is going to take a look at some of the most famous cartoon beards thats have had the opportunity to bless our TV screens, from a whole host of different decades do you remember any of these crazy cartoon beards? Maybe we should recommend them a new beard trimmer to use when they arn't busy 'hunting those pesky rabbits' and of course entertaining our children?

First up on our famous cartoon beard list is 'Papa Smurf':

Papa Smurf is a lovable wise character from 'The Smurfs' who is at the golden age of 542! He is the third oldest smurf after granpa and grandma smurf! He keeps a very tidy and well maintained beard for his age, we think he must be using the Phillips QC5380!

Next up we have Yosemite Sam! from the land of the Looney Tunes!

He is a grouchy, gunslinging prospector, outlaw and all round meanie! He has a particular grudge against Bugs Bunny, maybe he needs to team up with Elmer Fud more often? Trimming his beard might make him look a lot less mean, so we wouldnt advise him to do so!

Another very famous cartoon who loves sporting a fantastic beard is of course the legenary Homer Simpson.

Home Simpson, father of 3 balancing his work / life commitments means he doesnt have a lot of time to use his beard trimmer. This means he is often always found sporting his designer stubble, not a full on beard but a remarkable feature nonetheless. We think Homer would do well to keep making us laugh and not change a bit!

While not necessarily a cartoon character, Gandalf the Grey from the lord of the rings deserves a mention on our list of great cartoon beards.

He has captured many childrens hearts across the world and we feel his beard is a trademark that makes him who he is today. Gandalf is a wise and powerful wizard from Middle Earth, who is always willing to share and help out his friends in need.

Last on our list today is the one and the only... HAGRID! We absolutely love Hagrid.

Rebeus Hagrid is the lovable game keeper from the wonderful world of Harry Potter. Having catpured our hearts with his lovable trinkets, hobbies and his loving care for Harry himself, Hagrid is a valuabe member of the Hogwarts staff. His beard is justifiably epic, true and long! It would take more than just a simple beard trimmer to tame his wild hair.
