Posted 6th Feb

This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

The Wahl balding clipper is available for £27 after 20% newsletter subscription discount refurbished to factory standard with Wahl, this usually costs £60 new from Wahl. It has excellent reviews in YT. Failing that on very there is a babyliss super trimmer with Japanese blades, currently down to £60 but can be had for £30 with the £30 off £60 offer very keep offering. I’ve actually received the Wahl but I believe it’s heavy and as a novice probably prefer a cordless lighter clipper.

I went bald naturally - thank you genes of my dear old Dad. Didn't need to fork out for a clipper to help it along.
Edited by: "bookdream" 6th Feb
I had these. They do take the hair down to the skin, but it's not as smooth as a bic job. If you're happy with that, then this would be perfect for you. The do need a regular clean though.
Where is the Babyliss offer?
Had these for 15 years (2nd pair) may grab these and keep the old for backup. Cheers
I’m undecided between this or the babyliss which has a 5 yr warranty.
Every Babyliss I've ever owned was so underpowered that I avoid them now.

There's no comparison against these.

Do you mean in terms of the cutting ability? Because cordless and 5 yr warranty is a comparison

I’m not sure where I heard this but as a fellow baldy it must have been some article about baldness I read but for years now I’ve blamed my mum as the gene for male pattern baldness comes down the mothers side surprisingly (or if rubbish, not surprising at all)

Well, my dad was bald but not my mum. Either way as Larkin said 'your parents are to blame'.

From what I read theoretically yes, it's maternal grandfather that it comes from, as the gene variation is passed down in the x chromosome, which comes from the mum.
This seems to no oos now.
Looks like a good deal, thanks, but unfortunately out of stock when adding to basket
Stock is updated regularly, keep checking, it comes in and out often

Wahl's all me flipping hair gone?!

High fiving that, my noble bald brethren.
Do these have an adjustable length, if so what is the range?

For anyone not at ease with their balding, my friend [RIP] had a scalp tattoo , I didn't have a clue until he told me months after I met him. It looked 100 convincing, I had been put off them by weird unnatural hairlines, but his looked perfectly natural. He only paid about £800 too (Manchester area). He said it improved hois confidence a lot and thought it was great value.
So I used this today instead of returning it. I must admit I’m very impressed. I’ve never used clippers before and it was very easy to use.for the record I have a 85% head of hair and I’ve just decided to go for a baldy look for now. I had to stand in the bath so i dont make a mess all over the floor, the mirror is therefore a little far on the wall. Despite this I managed okay. I need to figure out how to get a mirror close up. Whilst this is actually really good I think a razor blade can do get up closer. Someone asked about adjusting this. This came set from the factory. It does have a zero over ride I’m told. So you can get very close but I’m not brave enough to try that. Besides you have to adjust the screw. Makes me wonder if I should get a cordless set and use a razor, but since I only paid £27 for these I might hold on to these.
I had babyliss , they didn't last more than a few months, I'd buy these if I didn't already have a few Wahl trimmers

The baldness gene goes through both parents. The mother line pitch is a bit of a myth.
I used these before I started using a razor, they are quality. The blades are extremely sharp and if you rush youre likely to cut yourself.

I have quite a few options, but these are my go to device. I just put a towel on the floor under the mirror.
I have a Philips wet and dry, but it struggles to do around the ears. Gets a little closer than the wahl though.
I've had these clippers for six years or more, I got them trade when my daughter worked in a hairdressers wholesalers, the price then was £53 including VAT so £27 is a cracking deal. I clean them and oil them after every use, (it takes 30 seconds) and I'm still on my first bottle of clipper oil which cost three quid all those years ago.

In response to a few comments I've read I'll add my own, they're not a replacement for balding naturally-they're for when you are balding and want to keep your hair short and even. They won't be as close as a Bic, they're clippers, not razors but they'll leave you hair ready to shave if you want to take the remaining 0.5mm off. After I've used this, if I want the wet shaved look and feel I use a regular electric razor and it's as close as any barber who's ever shaved my head can get it.

In short, three moderately priced barber clipper cuts comes in at about the cost of these, from the fourth onwards you're quids in.

I'll throw in a little story that has nothing to do with this deal but us HUKDers love a discount...

One Sunday morning I had time on my hands and was badly in need of a shave and good haircut (you can only do it yourself so many times before you need to involve a pro) so I thought I'd pop into the Turkish barbers in town as it would be empty, I waited my turn and after a few minutes I was in the chair.

I asked for the works including head shave and face shave. The guy set about his task, he shaved my head, set a machine to steam my beard, then shaved my face, I had the hot towels, a neck and shoulder massage, straightened my arms out and clicked all my joints, I got a proper pampering. I was in the chair for well over an hour and looked and felt great afterwards (or so I thought). Anyway, I went to the till to pay, got me forty quid out (after tip I was expecting a couple of quid back) and the guy asked me for £21, the guy saw my eyebrows shoot through the roof so he explained "I gave you the VIP but with senior citizen's discount it comes in at £21"

I had to do the instant calculation, do I take the insult and the discount or do I be the bigger man and pay the full price?

So pride wounded I took the discount and scuttled out of the door as fast as my little legs would carry me.

I was 58.
