Give a man a hair cut and he will look good for a week.

Buy him a good hair clipper designed to cut his hair himself and he will always look good, and save money.

I got one from Amazon Prime and have done my first cut and it's very good I reckon. Great time and money saver. Took me five minutes earlier.

Has a wide, curved blade with ergonomic design for one handed use, and provides a good consistent trim.

Battery lasts 40 mins per charge.

You can get a Lionel Blair cut like mine

I've cut my own for around 15 years now, but have always done it with normal clippers. It's not that difficult to get the hang of, and I'm talking fades, disconnects etc.

I've looked at these types of products before and the consensus is, generally, they're a bit pants unless you're doing a buzz cut.

Same here but I don't bother with fades and all that

No 1 back n sides
No 2 or 3 top
No 1 moustache and eyebrows (I hate Dennis Healey eyebrows)

Clipper cost about £7.50 from ASDA or Argos and somebody gave me another brand new unused set that's been stuck in the wardrobe waiting for this cheapo set to die or go blunt and I'm still waiting 6 years on.

Forget buying any oil - just use baby oil to keep them cutting and to clean them << if that's wrong then why am I still using the same cheapo set for 6 years?

You sound like a seasoned pro, what do you recommend then?
I posted the deal last week when these were £24.99. they're excellent.
This clipper is great due to its shape ultra easy to use highly recommended!

Just did a quick search and couldn't see the deal (?). Was it amazon.out of interest. I do think the headline 'previous price' of £69 sound a bit daft, but very happy with it for £30

I got these from Argos before, no guard buzz cut my head and beard every two days for 3 mins max and I’ve never looked so good or same same day to day lol.

Would recommend these, much easier than normal clippers.

I've just bought a Panasonic ER-GB80, but that's replaced a reasonably cheap limited edition Wahl colours, alongside a BaByliss 7845BU I-Trim beard trimmer. I'd had them for about 5 years.

Basically, it's pretty impossible (in my experience) to blend in smaller grades (0-2) on the sides unless you have something that steps in 0.5mm adjustments (or very thin hair). 5 years ago that meant buying clippers, and a beard trimmer for the finer details. These days you can get an all-in-one that comes with a wide range of combs - the Panasonic I've bought has 3 combs, but 40 lengths, so it's a great replacement (but still needs the blades oiling, which is a down side).

A lot of it is down to mastering and applying a technique, so expensive equipment isn't a prerequisite, but it definitely helps to have a range of cutting lengths available. A small clipper head can be useful around the ears if you're going for a decent blend on the side.

That's fair enough, sounds like you're doing a pretty straightforward cut.

I've heard that the comb adjustment can move if you apply to much pressure on higher grades, leading a 3 to become an unintended 1?

Alopecia for a kid not that funny.


It's a well used stock image for 'Cut your own hair'

If you run the clippers back and forth - there's a greater risk for the plastic size guard to pop off leaving you with potentially a stubble cut. The trick is to move forward, lift, re-site (is that the right word?), move forward
Got these for Xmas last year, they are the dogs danglers, you buy clippers for 6 or 7 quid these are definitley worth the extra.
'Customers who bought this item also bought' is the most random mix I have ever seen......
I have the first edition of these and have been using them for 5 years. Brilliant if you only want one length all over. Don’t let the negative comments put you off.
I use grade 0 on my clippers. In other words, just the blade, no comb attachments. I don't see the advantage in this item?

The £35 off Vans is running it close!
Take one from John Lewis with 5 year guarantee
These are excellent. Easy to use and control. If you just have a simple clipper cut why waste a tenner a time at a barbers, i paid 60 for these a year ago and haven't spent any money at a barbers since. Bargain at this price!
