We all know the struggle: after months of growing out enough facial hair to form a respectable beard, you finally learned how to trim a beard, find a day to dedicate towards trimming and shaping it, and find yourself drowning in the hair you trimmed off.
Almost all beard styles require trimming at some point, meaning you have to face the monster that is loose beard hair.
Just one beard trim can absolutely ruin any hopes you had for keeping your bathroom respectable and clean.
It tends to stick to any part of your bathroom that it can reach and is all but impossible to clean up once it’s spread.
Thankfully, this is such a widespread issue that many men have come up with their own DIY solutions to fix beard messes, and some men have created products designed to keep your counters and floors clean.
What Doesn’t Work?
Over the years, men have tried many things to minimize beard messes. While a few shining examples have led to a clean space, many have proven ineffective.
To keep you from making the same mistake as us, we’ve listed the ways that DO NOT help clean up after a beard trimming.
What DIY Methods Work?
A few of the many methods we’ve tried were bound to work, and work they did. We found that taking preventative measures to keep hair from spreading throughout the bathroom definitely worked best for us.
We’ve collected a few DIY prevention and cleaning methods that we’ve used or seen used to keep bathrooms clean.
Try these things:
What Products Work Best?
Best Beard Trimmer
We recommend an electric trimmer as it can catch a bit of the hair on its own, making clean-up easier.
Our favorite electric trimmer is the Philips Norelco Multigroom Series 3000, complete with 13 attachments for a variety of beard lengths and textures.
Best Beard Scissors
The Marbeian Beard Scissors have sharp blades that ensure a clean cut, meaning that your beard hair will fall quickly and directly rather than sticking to the scissors and spreading throughout your bathroom.
Best Beard Bib
The holy grail of bathroom cleanliness is a beard bib. These revolutionary products attach to the mirror or wall in front of your sink then wrap around your neck like a bib.
The fabric catches loose hair as you trim it, keeping your bathroom squeaky clean.
We’ve built a Beardoholic Beard Bib for no-mess grooming. Our bib is easy to use, secure, and high-quality, so you can keep using it for a long while.
The Final Word
Gone are the days of spending more time cleaning up than you do on actually trimming your beard.
No matter your beard style, you’re bound to end up needing a trim at some point, and our DIY solutions are a great way to keep a mess from forming.
For an easy, all but guaranteed clean bathroom experience, check out our Beardoholic Beard Bib to ensure your bathroom stays squeaky clean.
