For minor trims, such as my mustache or a patch that's out of control, I use barber sheers. For major trims, I have an electric hair trimmer. It's a cheap version of what they use for buzz cuts or shaving the back of your neck when you get your hair cut. The cheapest ones come with an adjustable comb that lets you trim the length from stubble to about 1 inch. You can also by hair cut kits that include the razor and multiple combs. The ones I've seen have combs up to 3 inches long. If you get a razor cut at the barber, this is what they're using. I works on beards just as well as the hair on top.
