Think straightening hair is only for the ladies? Think again! More and more men are discovering the world of straighteners for their beards as a way to turn unruly, tangled hairs into a smooth, perfectly styled beard. It’s a great way to take your beard routine one step further to really stand out in a crowd of bearded men.
Every straightener is unique, and what may be perfect for someone else’s beard may wreak havoc on yours. For instance, you need to consider the length of your beard. If it’s long and flowy, or simply more than around five inches in length, a standard-type straightening iron with heated plates may be your best bet. Shorter beards can get away with being straightened by heated combs or brushes, which are also incredibly easy to use and get the job done quickly.
Another thing you need to consider is how much time you’re willing to put into the straightening process. Want to just be up and out in the morning? Keep your beard shorter and opt for a straightening brush that brushes and straightens at the same time!
Without any further ado, here are five of the most popular beard straighteners for men that you might want to consider on your way to a better, more manageable beard.
You can get a wavy beard straight by
- A press comb (or hot comb)
- An hair straightener
- An straightener brush
Andis High Heat Press Comb – To Run Through Your Beard
Let’s kick off things with this heated press comb from Andis, a favorite of stylists worldwide. This one is perfect for the busy man who doesn’t want to spend too long on his beard but still wants to look great! It comes with a temperature range of up to 405 degrees Fahrenheit, which is more than enough for even the thickest of beards. Remember, you don’t want to single or burn your precious beard!
The comb itself is ceramic, which ensures even heat distribution through your beard and softens as it straightens. This is one high quality tool that any man would be lucky to gt his hands on, no doubt about it.
Note that this press comb also works great on Afro hair, because of the similarity of the beard hair texture and Afro hair
How to straighten beard using a hot comb
Section your beards, work with a small section, start from the roof, come in without contact with the skin beneath, slowly press the back of comb.
Grave Before Shave Beard Brush
We’ve taken a look at combs for beard straightening, but let’s move on to brushes. Like the Andis, this brush is also a great addition to your beard care arsenal. It’s super easy to use, and can even be paired with your favorite beard balm for hold and shine. And from a brand with a name like Grave before Shave, you can be sure that beards are definitely their specialty.
Stiff, boar bristles are the star of this brush, as they’re arguably one of the best materials for beard care. Knots and tangles simply melt away when used with a handheld blow dryer for a blown-out, straightener look. A lovely ergonomic design ensures that this brush is easy to use, comfy and lightweight in your hands. A brand that cares? We have to stan.
CNXUS Ionic Hair Straightener Brush
Let’s continue along the same line of brushes, but this time, let’s switch it up a little. This brush is of the best hair straightening brushes that we’ve seen, and we just have to share it with you too!
The CNXUS Ionic Hair Straightener Brush is a powerful heated brush with a heat range between 300 to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. This is read via a small LCD screen for complete accuracy, which many heating tools seem to skimp on. The safety aspect of this brush is also a winner in ur books, as its design allows it to disperse heat through the bristles whilst also keeping them cool to the touch. This way, your skin and hands are safe from being scalded when you handle your brush.
All men may not know how to use a flat iron, but every man knows how to use a brush, and this is what keeps men coming back. It’s something that they know well, and there’s no learning curve.
AMOVEE Mini Flat Iron Ceramic Hair Straightener
Looking for a powerful tool with great specs? A traditional flat iron might be one to consider.
There’s a reason that flat irons are the most popular straightening tool in the world, and it’s because they are pretty much tried, true and reliable. Good flat irons deliver sleek, soft results consistently, and stylists worldwide often have them as part of their holy grail of hair tools. Their reputation is only made stronger in the world of beard straightening, as irons like the AMOVEE mini flat iron brings the perfect size and power to beards everywhere.
Tiny but mighty, this iron definitely packs a punch. Maneuvering it is easy and worry-free, and it works great in those little spaces against your jaw and chin where you need to get closer to the skin for the best results.
It comes with a heat resistant glove that will keep your hands safe from any potential damage, as flat irons are much more hands-on and operate on open heat, unlike straightening brushes and combs.
One thing is for sure though – shorter beards should opt for brushes or combs rather than an iron like this one. It would be a sure pain in the neck to struggle to catch your hairs between the plates of the iron. This iron is much better suited for medium-long beards.
Since the technique behind using a flat iron straightener is more hands on than with other devices, this glove is invaluable in helping to prevent painful burns.

Here’s a straightening brush that not only gives you a lovely blown out beard, but also adds volume, curls or simply brushes to remove tangles as you see fit!
This heats up extremely quickly – in just 15 seconds! No waiting around forever for it to heat up like with other heated tools. Simply turn it on and be ready to go in an instant! Whether your beard hair is fine or coarse, thin or thick, wavy or kinky, this is a tool that works with any texture. With a user-friendly design that fits snug in the palm of your hand, you’ll love this nifty gadget – as well as the results it gives you!
If You Have A Long Beard
Pressing comb has a advantage that it can go from the root, but sometimes you may accidentally touch your facial skin if you go too close.
Hair straightener may be good but it takes time for you to get used to it. Well, a beard comb is much easier to handle and I found a product that fit anyone with a long beard, the Aberlite MAX – Beard Straightener, though they are to large if you straighten hair from the side of your face, where your hair is short.
The last thing I want to recommend is a cordless beard comb. It can be recharged but it won’t be as effective as the other types. It is very useful for traveling, in some situation you want to quickly manage your beard. movember’s cordless beard straightener can last for 20 minutes. It works nicely for most beard’s length and texture with 3 different heat settings.
DOLIROX Beard Comb – if you have curly beard
- Using these hot tool can cause flakes and itching in your beard, you can spray your beard with heat protection
- Apply some beard and hair oil ( I recommend beardandcompany) after you finish to enhance shine
- Don’t straighten on wet beard and your beard should be clean and completely dry
