The beard bib is one of those blatantly ridiculous but wildly useful things that you might see on a show like Shark Tank. And in fact, that’s exactly how the beard bib came to be. The original beard bib was pitched on Shark Tank as a solution for pesky trimmings that can get all over the sink and floor when shaving.
The way it works is that it clips around your shoulders, like a bib, and the bottom part is attached to the bathroom mirror using suction cups. This creates something of a hammock between your face and the bathroom sink that loose shavings can fall into. When you’re done, you carefully fold the bib and dump the shavings. The basic principle and design is not dissimilar from something you’d wear at a barbershop, except it only goes on the front of your body.
The original version from Beard King is featured below, but you can also pick up inexpensive alternatives that work the same way. It’s a great buy if you have a beard, and perhaps an even better gift for any bearded people you might share a bathroom with.
1. BEARD KING Official Beard Bib
This is the original beard bib, and it has a variety of thoughtful features to make shaving easier and cleaner. The back has loops so it can be folded without removing it from the mirror — this is designed for those times when you’re not done shaving, but need to pause for something. Plus, it packs into a built-in pouch for travel and storage purposes.
Pros: Packs into a built-in pouch, one-size-fits-all design, has straps to hang it up if you need to take a break from shaving.
Cons: Some reviewers noted that bib material can lead hair to stick to it, making cleanup more difficult.
2. KING POSEIDON Beard Shaving Bib
While this beard bib doesn’t pack into itself, it does come with a carrying pouch for travel and storage. The suction cups have release hooks, so you don’t have to try to forcefully pull the cups off when you want to remove them. Plus, it comes with a beard comb.
Pros: Comes with a carrying pouch, suction cups lock and unlock for easier attachment and removal.
Cons: Some reviewers noted that they wished the bib was wider to catch more hairs that might fall from the side of the face.
3. Bear’s Beard Beard Bib
The Bear’s Beard beard bib (trying saying that five times fast) comes in black and white. Tongue twister aside, it offers the same basic functionality of the other options. It has grommets on the ends to attach to the hooked suction cups. It also comes with a carrying pouch and a small washcloth.
Pros: Available in black and white, comes with a carrying pouch and towel.
Cons: Some reviewers didn’t receive the towel that is supposed to come with the bib.
