Get ready to define, shape, and sculpt your beard with the skill that comes only from the best grooming products.

Beard comb

The Beard comb is the first tool that we are going to discuss. It is nothing but looks similar to a hair comb.

There are several types of beard combs available made with different materials. Beard combs can be single-sided, double-sided, pocket-friendly, picks, and mustache combs. 

They come in different materials like plastic, cellulite, ox horn, wood, and metal.

Beard combs help to detangle the beard and prevent knots. It also helps in trimming your beard. 

Always choose a wide-teeth beard comb for a thick, long beard and start combing from bottom to upward.

I mostly recommend people use sandalwood beard combs. To know why you can check the best beard combs guide.

Beard trimmer

The next one is the beard trimmer in our list, which is so common and known everywhere.

The Beard trimmer is a tool that helps to trim, style, shape, and dry shave your beard. They come with many attachments like a comb, adjustable heads, chargers, and many more.

People often confuse beard trimmers with clippers, groomers, and shavers. All of them are different and used for other purposes. 

Beard clippers are for cutting hair, and groomers are for body hair like armpit, chest, and abdomen hair. Shaver’s are for clean shaving your beard. All have a different purposes.

There are beard trimmers for short beards, long beards, noses, ears, and hair. You have to decide according to your need.

Never use your beard trimmer on your body. Use trimmers and body tools on the recommended body part. You might end up hurting yourself.

Beard shaping tools

Now the next one is the beard-shaping tool or grooming tool.


The beard industry has come too far. They have beard-shaping tools on their list. 

Beard-shaping tools are stencils for reference to the desired beard shape.

All you have to do is place the shaping tool on your beard and trim or shave the remaining part coming out of the stencil.

The shape of your desired beard will become apparent once you remove the styling tool.

The beard-shaping tools save time and give precision to the look.

Most beard-shaping templates feature three to four edges, including curve cut, step cut, gentle curve cut, and curved step cut. 

Beard brush

So the next one is a beard brush. Every grooming kit should contain a Beard brush, especially a boar bristle brush.

The Beard brush is not only for eliminating knots, detangling, and making it frizz-free. But it helps to improve blood flow which boosts beard growth. 

Brushing makes your skin healthy by removing dandruff and spreading beard oils evenly on the beard. 

It distributes the sebum and prevents our beard from becoming dry. These are best for people with thick beards and must have at least 6 mm beard length.

Beard scissors

There is always an underestimation of beard scissors. People do not bother to make it a part of their grooming essentials.

But let me tell you, beard scissors can save you a lot of time.

Sometimes you might ruin your look and need a quick fix or want to trim the less reachable areas. It can help you in no time.

People usually use safety scissors over beard scissors and say they work similarly. But the kind of precision a beard scissor can give is not comparable.

They are lightweight and precise and help you with sideburns and ears. Also, they are portable and sharper than safety scissors.

Beard razors

Beard razors are of two types: Manual and electric. 

Wahl's Professional 5-Star Razor Edger

We all are aware of manual razors used for clean shaving the face. They are affordable and replaceable, which prevents infections and cuts.

All you need is a use-and-throw or blade-replaceable razor. Apply the shaving cream on your beard and by stretching your skin, glide smoothly.

It will give you a smooth, clean shave in no time.

On the other hand, electric razors or electric shavers for beards come with a guarantee of 2-3 years.

You can remove the blades and clean them. Replace the blades every two or three years, as recommended.

Their initial cost is quite expensive but worth it. You can use the same electric shaver for years without spending money on blades or a barber.

Beard straightener

Finally, a beard straightener is a must-have in any grooming kit.

A Beard straightener is a tool that resembles a hair straightener used by women but is compact.

It helps to straighten long and frizzy beards to make them sleek and sophisticated. The best part is it works exactly like a hair straightener.

Apply heat protectant, divide your beard into sections and straighten your beard with combing simultaneously.

People with short beards can also use a beard straightener. They might not comb simultaneously but can straight directly.

I never recommend using a beard straightener daily, even if you have the best beard straightener, as it makes your beard dry and thin.

Derma roller

We must have a derma roller in our beard growth kit.

A derma roller or microneedle is a device that looks like a face roller with micro needles that help to micro-injure the skin under the beard.

Micro-needling process is used by women to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, stretch marks, enlarged pores, uneven skin tone and texture, and skin laxity.

But now it has gained popularity to improve beard health by stimulating dormant hair follicles in the beard area, potentially encouraging new hair growth or enhancing the thickness of existing hairs.

Also, it improves blood flow in that area, enhanced product absorption and may enhance the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to hair follicles, potentially supporting healthier hair growth.

Blow dryer

You may think a blow dryer for beards make no sense while grooming or styling, but it is the most easy yet effective beard tool.

As you may aware of what blow dryer does, along with fast drying things, it helps in shaping the beard in a particular direction if you direct the airflow wisely.

Also, your beard can get fuller and more volume by blow drying it. You may make your beard appear fuller by raising the hair at the roots and directing the airflow. This will increase the thickness of your beard overall.

In addition, it helps in straightening the curly or wavy beards and in even distribution and absorption of beard care products, such as oils, balms, or styling products.
