Trimming your beard and hair is the key to keeping it looking in good condition. Trimming promotes growth and is essential to shaping your hair into a cool looking style and maintaining your beard in good condition. However, hair trimmers for all their virtues tend to make a bit of mess.
I’ve tried everything from trimming over the sink to the toilet even in the yard! But you always end up finding your hair clippings! That was until someone recommended I try some hair clippers with vacuum attachment. I’ve never looked back since. So, let’s take a look at 5 of the best trimmers and hair clippers with vacuum attachment.

We have reviewed five fantastic hair clippers with vacuum attachments. All are feature-packed and will provide you with a quality look.
The Remington HKVAC2000A and the Remington HC6550 18-piece kits are great value for money and are perfect for a home-based hairdresser or home enthusiast as they provide everything you need to get started.
The Wahl professional vacuum clipper offers a top-quality clipper but having to attach it to your home vacuum cleaner makes operating this clipper’s suction capability not very user-friendly and requires the noise of your vacuum cleaner.
The Philips Norelco BT7215/49 is a fantastic all-in-one trimmer with plenty of length settings and self-sharpening blades. It lends itself to beard trimming as its principal function but will undoubtedly be suitable for shorter hair work as well.
We particularly like the Remington VPG6530 for its multi-function multi usability, decent battery life, and range of attachments.
Whichever hair clipper with vacuum attachment you choose, we hope it has you looking fresh and trendy for years to come.
