Speaking as someone who hates cleaning the bathroom after a shave, I completely understand why guys would want to find the best vacuum beard trimmer.
A good beard trimmer is an essential tool for guys with facial hair, whether you like to maintain a little stubble or prefer to grow one of those luscious, long beards that attract attention.
But while a good cordless trimmer can make beard maintenance much easier, removing body hair from the sink, drain and floor is as annoying as it is time-consuming.
That’s where a good vacuum trimmer comes in.
Unlike a standard electric beard trimmer, vacuum trimmers immediately suck up the vast majority of cut hair as you trim, leaving fewer stray hairs for you to clean up later.
To help you find the best trimmer to give you a close shave and a good suck (yeah, I heard it – leaving it in!), in this post I’ve rounded up some of the best vacuum trimmers and hair clippers on the market today.

Another solid option from Remington, the MB6850 boasts stainless steel blades that provide a clean cut and can easily be removed and cleaned.
The high-velocity fan provides maximum power to the vacuum function, which has enough suction to gobble up both short hair and even the longer hair that results from using a longer guard setting.
And speaking of guards, while this model only comes with one guard attachment, it can be adjusted on the unit to give you 11 different length settings.
I’ve had this trimmer for a few months now and I can say I am super pleased with it…
On average using the trimmer for 2-3 minutes once every few days, I can easily go 4-6 weeks between charges, and I’ve even taken it when I travel so it’s durable to boot.

A worthy successor to the (now discontinued) Remington VPG6530, the Remington HKVAC2000A is your best bet if you want a beard trimmer that can double as a body trimmer, and even handle head hair.
(Though we recommend using a different trimmer to clean up your pubic hair, for reasons that I hope – good sweet God, do I hope – are obvious.)
It comes with 12 different comb attachments that give you multiple length ranges, but when guardless its precision trimmer blades provide a close that you can use to create clean edges.
Solid build, feels great in the hand. Blade / cutter is so sharp, you feel no tug on any hair even when cutting thick hair quickly.
The suction concept is amazing…much cleaner while cutting and leaves little debris for clean-up. It comes with an excellent selection of accessories. Top drawer!

Though not technically a vacuum trimmer, there’s still a good reason to consider this cordless model from Conair:
It has a large compartment that catches body hair as it’s shaved off, achieving much of what you want from a vacuum trimmer even without the same suction functionality as some of the other models on this list.
In addition, it has a whopping 39 different length settings, making it ideal for guys with shorter beards who want to keep them at a particular length.
After using it for a few months I’m impressed with its performance and how the cut hair is able to collect into the hair compartment without a vacuum.
Also, there are many settings for trimming levels, and it can trim very short if that’s your preference.

A good candidate for the title of best budget beard trimmer, this is the only model on this list to come in at a sub-30 dollar price tag.
While it may not have all the bells and whistles of some of the top-ranking trimmers on this list, it’s got a powerful vacuum, a powerful blade motor that reaches 6,000 rpm, and rechargeable batteries that offer 60 minutes of use for a three-hour charge time.
These work really well! I found them to be extremely helpful cutting my dogs hair and the Clean up was a breeze!

The first thing to note about the HKVAC2000A is that it’s a corded trimmer, which may be a deal breaker for some guys.
(And is the main reason why we ranked this model much lower than the other Remington options above.)
But it’s a great option if you don’t mind a corded trimmer, and only want one tool that can handle everything from mowing through a full beard to shaping the clean lines needed for a precise cut.
It comes with an 18-piece kit that includes eight different guide combs, in addition to barber scissors and a cleaning brush, while the removable trimmer head makes for quick and easy cleaning.
This is the best personal self cutting haircut clippers I have ever had.
The vacuum works perfectly and I can cut my hair flawlessly in front of my bathroom mirror without getting hair all over the place.

In addition to being a good trimmer for beards and bods, this Wahl model comes with separate attachments that can handle nose and ear hair, making it a great all-in-one electric razor and grooming tool.
Its rechargeable battery boasts an impressive 90 minutes of cordless use on a full charge, which is more run time than most vacuum trimmers offer.
Other important features include a full adjustable guide comb kit, with trimmer attachments that offer 12 different length settings, self-sharpening precision ground blades, and (of course) a strong vacuum cleaner with a powerful motor that sucks up as much hair as possible.
I really enjoy using the vacuum trimmer kit. It trims well with no snags and has a large variety of attachments and travel case to fit all of my needs.
The vacuum feature collects 90-95% of hair clippings…
I would strongly recommend this product to anyone looking for a well made trimmer with great performance.

Sometimes the best products have the worst names.
If you can get past the (truly god awful) moniker, the Clownfish (ugh – honestly, what were they thinking?) actually has a lot to recommend it.
For one thing, it’s quite possibly the best waterproof beard trimmer on the market.
It has IPX7 certification, meaning you can use it in the shower without fear that warm water will seep into the device and cause it to malfunction.
Nor do you have to be worried about too many loose hairs going down the drain, because it has a dedicated motor for the vacuum unit, offering it more than enough power to gobble up the majority of hair before it hits the floor.
I bought for my son for Christmas. He absolutely loves it.
It charges quickly and keeps charge for a long time. He likes that it’s not messy and it’s easy to clean and store.

This model from the Philips Norelco series easily ranks on our list of top picks thanks to an impressive combo of precise trimming, powerful suction and a reasonable price.
Its maintenance-free blades stay sharp without requiring blade oil and the adjustable comb offers 18 individual settings.
That means you can trim to a wide range of different lengths, making this both a good stubble trimmer, and one that can handle the demands of longer beards.
Meanwhile, its lithium-ion battery provides more than enough battery life for a good shave, giving you up to 75 minutes of use on a single charge.
But arguably the most important thing to note about the 7300 is its large vacuum compartment, which has enough power and size to catch the vast majority of cut hair, without compromising ergonomics or ease of use.
If you want the convenience of a vacuum clipper with the precise shave of a top-of-the-line beard trimmer, this is definitely your best bet.
I have nothing but positive things to say about this beard trimmer.
I previously had the precursor to this product (T980) I believe and in almost all ways this is an improvement.
Unfortunately it looks like the 7300 is out of stock for now.
We’ll update this post if/when that changes, or if Norelco comes out with a newer/upgraded model.
