Hair clippers are easy-to-use hair-cutting machines that you can use in the comfort of home to get and give fresh haircuts. Unlike men’s trimmers, men’s shavers and razors or women’s electric razors and epilators, hair clippers can cut longer hair. You can also use hair clippers for trims and removing a small amount of hair. When you don't have time to run to the barber, this makes hair-cutting kits ideal for quick, at-home haircuts. Also, you can use hair clippers for more than just your head, including trimming longer beards. Once the beard is clipped, you can refine it up with a trimmer.
How to choose the best hair clippers for you.
Most clippers come with a variety of attachments and guard comb sizes and styles, which allows you to personalize your haircut. Being able to cut your hair at different lengths, you can achieve anything from a buzz cut, a layered look or seamless fade. If you like to experiment with different cuts or styles, consider hair-cutting kits that have nine or more combs. If you prefer to cut and trim in the shower or with water, consider water-resistant hair clippers. If you travel frequently, you may be interested in hair clippers with rechargeable batteries and you'll want to make sure it’s compact enough to fit in your toiletry bag or Dopp kit. To keep the hair clippers functioning their best, make sure to use a cleaning brush, which helps with good hygiene. They are also included with most hair-cutting kits.
Using hair clippers at home.
While hair-cutting kits make it easy to give yourself a haircut, you still want to have a good bathroom mirror. You can also consider enlisting a friend to help. Thanks to the guard combs and skin-friendly blades, you don’t have to worry about nicks and cuts that may occur with a barber's scissors. Cordless hair clippers can also help because you won’t have to worry about cords getting in the way while you cut. Plus, many hair clippers are washable or water-resistant, which makes cleanup easier because you can wash the clippers in the sink or shower.
