Futuristic beard trimmers

Futuristic beard trimmers

Imagine a world where beard trimmers become so accurate you can set a cutting distance using a laser that bounces off your skin thousands of times a second and alters the height of the blades to keep the hair length exactly the same throughout the contours of your chin and cheek. Imagine a beard trimmer that uses skin recognition software so only you can use your beard trimmer and no one can turn it on if they steal it. These additions might seem pointless but these features might soon become a reality as consumers demand for newer and more high tech devices to come onto the market.

It would be awesome if futuristic beard trimmers would start coming on the market, and I feel an advancement of modern male grooming is long overdue. I want to be able to sit in a chair and let robot arms cut my hair, shave my stubble and pamper me in half the time that it would take a traditional barber to do the same, because frankly no one enjoys small talk.

We already have the computing power to be able to make a device that could easily trim our beards for us and do so in far greater accuracy than we could ourselves, but could we trust a blade wielding computer to trim our beards for us? Maybe not as I’m sure a few horror stories would spring up if the technology didn’t have reasonable fail safes in place.

Blade wielding robots aside, what if we invest in not only advanced shaving tools but advanced shaving creams too? I have long wondered if men could use a shaving cream that partially dissolves the hairs on your face enough so that the blades would cut through even easier eliminating the need for shavers with 6+ blades, just a thought.

Futuristic beard trimmers could be the way forward to revolutionise the way in which men prioritise their daily grooming tasks. One such suggestion was a form of plastic face mask that used targeted vibrations to draw hairs out of the follicles and simply... ‘Fall off’ painlessly, I can’t begin to think about the scientific implications of this technology but hell I wouldn’t mind a pseudo beard trimmer/face massager in the mornings.

Attending a beard trimmer and shaving trade show

Attending a beard trimmer and shaving trade show

If you are a trader or if you own your own your own grooming salon or barbers you might have attended a shaving trade show in the past. Shaving and beard trimmer trade shows are actually a lot of fun and although these events can be quite daunting being held in large venues such as the NEC in Birmingham you’ll always learn something new on the day and possibly even come across some new and innovative shaving products and beard trimmers.

Most recently I have attended a beard trimmer and shaving trade show because I was looking for a new selection of products which I could drop ship using an e-commerce store in addition to running this price comparison website for all of you. One of the main things I enjoy about trade shows is that you will always meet some very interesting and bright people, young and old who all have a passion for the industry. Trade shows provide excellent networking opportunities and you can make some great contacts on the day.

I spent most of the day looking at shaving accessories, and came across some new innovative beard trimmers that aim to become the next big thing on the market, one particular beard trimmer had a laser recognition system built into the blade that could tell how close it was to the skin and if you applied too much pressure it would extend the blade guard so that it reduced the risk of cutting you as well as maintaining a perfect cutting distance from your skin resulting in flawlessly accurate stubble. To me this seemed a little over the top for a beard trimmer and came with a price tag of £299.99 that has managed to price itself out of the market completely, at least I believe it will as you can get a decent beard trimmer these days for a little under £40.

I had also managed to spend the day scouting out competition, talking to existing suppliers and sourcing new marketing opportunities for 2013. It’s all standard stuff within business really and as a result I feel just beard trimmers has an exciting time ahead of itself for this year and hundreds of new products being released and will be available soon on our site, obviously for the best prices! Cheap beard trimmers come in all shapes and sizes but only here will you find out who is selling and for what price, as well as being able to get some great reviews, product descriptions and demonstrations before you commit to buying.

Keep stubble in check with beard trimmers

Keep stubble in check with beard trimmers

January is here, Christmas is over and we've probably put on a few unwanted pounds. Why not distract attention away from an unsightly belly with some designer stubble? With a quality beard trimmer you'll be smouldering more than the fireplace during this cold start to 2013.

The key to keeping your stubble in check is to use a quality beard trimmer with a fine grade setting that can be applied smoothly over your chin, cheeks and neck. Many brands of beard trimmer are proving perfect for the job like the Remington MB4110 Beard Trimmer.

Each beard trimmer has their own benefits and drawbacks and normally it takes a few trial shaves to determine which beard trimmer you are going to enjoy using the most and will provide the most consistent results. Allowing for a decent amount of stubble can be a welcome addition to any male's grooming habits, the 5'Oclock shadow or 3 day growth are popular terms used these days to describe sexy male stubble by the most important of critics of all, women.

We recommend attending to stubble with your beard trimmer regularly to keep the hair at a consistent length, there is nothing worse than having uneven stubble across your jaw line, it can alter your face shape and become more of a hindrance to your complexity.

Letting your stubble grow out further won't be a bad thing but there is a fine line when it comes to stubble being attractive to then being classed as a full on beard, there is no universally recognised stubble length and unfortunately it is down to the individual but mroe often than not as long as stubble is not grown for more than 3-4 days you can safely remain in the 'sexy' zone.
