Facial hair isn’t as simple as beard or clean-shaven; there are also many different styles you cultivate on your chin! However, some might find that keeping their beards neat and tidy isn’t the easiest job in the world. If this sounds familiar to you, it might be useful to try a beard straightening brush!
Beard straightening brushes do what they say on the tin; these can help keep your beard in an orderly style while maintaining the growth. Those with naturally curly hair may benefit most from these brushes, but they’re great for all beards. As a barber, I find that most men don’t even know about the brushes; this always seems crazy to me, as they’re a game-changer for beard styles.
I’ve picked out the top beard straightening brushes I often recommend to clients and friends alike. Hopefully, this can help a few beards out there stay stylish.
If you’re new to the straightening brush game, these may sound confusing to you – but don’t worry, I’ve been there, and it’s actually all quite simple. If you’re after a straightening brush that has a good amount of power and can tame any hair, try the BEARDWORLD brush. This brush uses ionic technology and allows safe, rapid, and even heating. Many men swear by this brush, and I often recommend this to guys at the barbers.
The iconic technology is where negative ions moisten the beard and prevent any frizz or split ends. The advanced MCH heating technology allows for uniform heating, fast dissipation, and high thermal conductivity. Also featured on this brush are ceramic heat teeth and rubber anti-scald bristles. Anti-scald bristles are great to stop burns yet also give a gentle massage effect when used closer to the skin.
This brush has so many great tech aspects, so if you want to invest in a long-term option to do the job, I’d recommend this one. This is also a great buy as it’s easy to travel with, it has universal voltage and is lightweight – take it everywhere!
Another great option is the Grow Alpha Beard brush; this beard straightening brush is an electric hot comb with beard oil and balm. It is a great deal if you want to take extra care of your beard or need to restock your oil and balm. As a barber, I know the importance of beard care, especially if you’re trying to grow one – oil really is your best friend.
The comb is multifunction; this allows for curling, straightening, and even volumizing. This is particularly useful if you’re a fan of styling your beard and don’t always fancy the average ‘straightened’ look. The brush also features quick heating and a ceramic plate. The brush is even made from durable raw materials to ensure a long lifespan for the product.
If you’re looking for a first electric beard straightener, I would definitely recommend this one as it can do all necessary jobs and comes with complimentary oil and balm. I wish my first beard brush were like this one; unfortunately, mine didn’t heat up fast enough and then dried my hair out! Do not fear; with this brand, there is no need to worry about hair damage at all.
If you know you’re the kind of guy who likes to have the best product and you’re not bothered about finding the lowest price, make sure you check out the Arkam Premium Beard Straightener. This is an excellent option for a splurge; this product’s luxury element ensures your beard will be the best in the room. If you’re looking for a gift, this is a great grooming present for any man in your life.
The brush can even double as a beard straightener and a hairbrush styler too, so this is absolutely for those who love to look good. It uses ion technology and MCH dual ceramic plates – meaning you can groom quickly with fast heating. Not only that, but the brush comes with a wooden pocket comb to maintain beard appearance throughout the day, so you’ll be covered at all times.
I love this product and personally use this on my beard, I have also gifted this to some of my bearded friends on their birthdays, and it always goes well. The pocket comb is handy and completes the look. Arkam has sold over 500,000 units making it a favorite for men worldwide; they perform rigorous testing on all products, so safety and usage are ensured!
Do you ever look at barbers and think, ‘I could easily do that’? Well, good news for you wannabe barbers, the Sqauresilk straightening brush is the answer for you. This beard straightening brush comes with an additional two accessories – a wooden pocket comb and argan oil that will protect your beard from heat while nourishing it. This full set gives you all the tools you need to become your own barber and stylist, all while at home.
All hair types can use this kit; whether you have curly, straight, thick, or thin hair, you’re covered. This brush also works on long or short beards – allowing you to experiment with styles too. The brush is anti-scald, has three power settings, and a 360-degree swivel. The swivel is excellent if your plug is at an awkward angle or if you’re getting into the nooks and crannies of the beard. The power settings allow for various styles, and if you’re a fan of low heat, this gives you the option.
I would recommend this for all those keen beard owners out there; this allows you to really get to grips with styling and taking care of yourself. Plus, with all the lockdowns and quarantines happening this year, it’s perfect to have at home.
If you’re worried that some options on this list won’t cater to your hair type, try the Aberlite EDC – this brush is designed for all beards and hair as it has densely packed bristles that can work with long, medium, and short beards. Curly or straight, this brush works on both! It can even style head hair, making it an excellent buy for 2-in-1 usage. I always keep one of these in the shop with me as it works on all clients and always looks good.
The brush has an anti-static coating and provides an effortless glide through facial hair, with less snagging and frizz for a comfortable process. This also gives longer-lasting results, so your hair will stay in style for more extended amounts of time – no need to rush back and wax it or restyle. Six heat settings can heat up within two minutes; your life will not be interrupted with a tedious styling process here!
This is an excellent product for keen travelers, too; the brush is also designed to be compact and lightweight, making it great for portable usage. Always look your best on the go with the Abertlite EDC.
Though all products on this list are great for giving you that tidy beard look, the XIKEZAN straightener is deemed one of the best. Unlike others, this brush uses PTC heater technology, which offers fast and stable heat distribution up to 482-degrees Fahrenheit (220-degrees C). High temperatures are great for getting the dead straight styles, making this brush perfect for a professional look. I like to use this when my clients need a precise technique, often for formal events.
The brush also comes with beard balm and oil – these are must-haves if you often opt for high-temperature styles. The balm and oil nourish and protect the beard, offsetting the hair’s heat and potential damage. Also, you get an E-Book, which summarizes beard care and growth, written by men for men! This could be a good option if you are new to the styling game, no need to do additional research on the brush.
Another feature the brush boasts is intelligent security protection – this means the brush doesn’t get as hot as a straightening iron so that you won’t burn fingers, and hair damage is very unlikely. There are protective guards, too, so even if you slip, you’ll be safe.
Are you someone that likes things done quickly? Often in a rush due to a busy schedule? I know the feeling, I’m usually trying to get to work while still having so many things to do, but luckily my beard straightener heats up so quickly I don’t have to wait around for ages anymore. This brush is perfect for those who know they don’t like waiting around, as it can heat up in approx. The 30s! This is music to your ears if you don’t like to spend hours in the mirror.
The Raffin beard brush comes with three temperatures to suit all hair types, ensuring everyone is covered. Safety is provided with an anti-scald design and also 30 minutes off function that prevents the brush from being left on – we’ve all been there. It also uses universal voltage and small portable size to allow for easy travel, making it suitable for frequent travelers.
This brush is excellent due to its convenience and speed; I have used this brush in the past, which suited my lifestyle very well. I like to recommend this to friends as a great starting point within beard care too.
This option may seem a bit rouge on this list, but hear me out. If you know a lady that is also a fan of straightening her hair – why not share a brush? This can be half the price spent on buying hair tools and make things easier when it comes to travel. The Veryfun brush allows for unisex usage while not compromising the ability to straighten your beard well.
The 2-in1 brush straightens hair while you brush it due to the MCH heat distribution and quick temperature settings. The high-density bristles easily separate your hair for a faster and more in-depth straighten. This gives you great results in half the amount of time; the brush also has 50% less breakage, frizz, and flyaways than other options – ensuring a perfect style. It’s designed to navigate a coarse beard but is also gentle enough for head hair.
As mentioned, this is an excellent option for travel – its two applications in one with a compact design. It also comes with a long cable, so it can be flexible wherever and whenever you need it. The universal voltage means it can help you style your beard worldwide. I quite like this brush’s concept, as I know many men that would benefit from the simplicity of sharing it on the road!
When it comes to personal grooming, we know what works best for us. If you’re partial to a traditional comb-shaped brush, you may be interested in the Wokaar Hair Straightening Brush rather than others on this list. This brush has a linear comb shape, which can work well with longer and thicker beards, giving them a good untangle while also styling them with heat. Not only that, the brush has a six-level temperature option, very flexible if you’re keen on low-heat options.
The brush runs on ceramic negatively ions technology, with an anti-scalding ceramic double-layer design. The negative ion technology increases shine and keeps the hair looking healthy. Due to the different temperature options, the brush has an LCD temperature display, allowing you to be sure you’re in the right heat setting. This is great, as some may be cautious using extreme heat on facial hair – you can always keep an eye on it here!
If you often find yourself in a rush or live a hectic life, this can be a good option for you. The brush boasts a fast 30-second heat-up time, making sure you won’t waste your time waiting. I personally love a quick heating brush, as when in the shop I hate to keep a client waiting – some people have the worst small talk.
Now, when it comes to buying gadgets and styling tools, I’ll be the first to admit an ergonomic design or an aesthetic look can easily sway a purchase. When thought and effort have been put into the product’s design, it can easily outshine the competition. The Scree beard straightener is an excellent example of just that! This has been designed for easy and effective use while maintaining good style results! The brush is also 2-in-1, allowing for men to comb their beard and hair.
The brush has dual heat settings, which offer a 180-degree C° heat or 200-degree C°; these can suit all hair types and textures. They recommend coarse, thick hair to use the higher temperature and the lower for thinner hair. The device takes 60 seconds to heat, this may not be the fastest on the list, but the brush makes up for that in other ways. It also has a 360-degree swivel cord to prevent wire entanglement and facilitates easy and effective use. No muss, no fuss.
If you need any more persuasion, the device has a one-year warranty. If any fault or mishap develops and customers have used the brush as per the operating instructions provided in the manual, it will be replaced at no extra cost! Nothing like a bit of insurance to calm the mind.
When brushes have multiple temperature settings, it’s important that they clearly display them. This may seem insignificant, but it does really matter when it comes to different hair types and heat. No one wants to fry their hair accidentally, and on the other hand, no one wants to be brushing their beard and wondering why nothing is happening. The Cayzor has an LCD display and five adjustable temperatures, perfect for all hair types, and perfect if you like to change beard lengths.
Cayzor recommends 210-280 degrees F for a thin/fine beard and up to 360 degrees F for a thicker and curlier beard. This is important if you are opting for a dead straight style. The temperatures are created with an advanced PTC heater, which delivers even and safe heat to optimize straightening with every pass and avoid any ‘hot spots.’ The brush’s back is a heat-resistant silicone coat, allowing you to use the brush and keep the heat away from your hands.
This option is very versatile, so if you want to fluctuate between longer and shorter styles, I would recommend it. I like to keep a multiple setting heat brush in my shop, as it works on various clients and always gives a good style.
Auto shut-off seems like another rouge feature to look for in a beard straightening brush, but trust me, it’s an important one! Leaving a hot brush on is often easier to do than you think, so it’s always good to look at safety features when buying. This beard brush comes with auto shut-off after 30 minutes, so no need to worry if you leave the house and wonder if you unplugged it.
The brush also allows for 60-second rapid heating and five adjustable temperatures. The brush’s teeth are excellent and dense to allow easy and effective use – they can detangle all beard types. It also utilizes PTC Technology and has a ceramic-coated straightener to stop irritation to the skin.
This brush is excellent in terms of good style with adequate safety. The brush has an additional layer of protection as the shorter ceramic teeth are surrounded by higher rubber comb teeth – protecting your skin and hair. This is a perfect option if the brush will potentially be around young ones, keep them protected from heat with a safer brush.
Beard brushes can make a world of difference to your style, you don’t need to use them every day, but if you turn up to an occasion every once in a while with a perfectly styled beard, you’ll look the best in the room. Each brush suits a different user, so make sure to do thorough checks and compare products before buying them. These are the best in the game when it comes to beard care; take it from me – I’ve tried it all. Have you tried a beard straightening brush? Tell us your opinion in the comments!
