One way to save money is to cut your own hair. More and more people are taking this approach to keep themselves looking tidy as well. Here are three very popular hair clippers that are popular with not only home hair stylists but also used by professional stylists as well for men.
Oster Classic 76 Hair Clippers
The Oster Classic 76 hair clipper is one of the best hair clippers with lots of power. You will need to lubricate the engine in the trimmer to keep it in top operating condition. This trimmer feels hefty when you pick it up. It will easily cut through thick hair without problem; yet it can be used to complete trim and delicate edging.
This is simply a single speed trimmer designed to be used over and over again. The trimmer comes with two blades in sizes 000 and 1. These are the most commonly used blades. Oster provides a variety of blades in other sizes. The trimmer comes with a 9-foot cord that runs on 220v. The clipper comes with a sturdy housing available in seven colors. This trimmer is about 7 1/2 inches long and about 2 inches thick. The case makes it easy to store and travel with. If you want a clipper that will work through a family’s worth of hair styling and last for years, this is a great clipper to consider.
Skull Shaver Beast Clipper
Another choice is the Beast Clipper from Skull Shaver. Designed to easily shave the head, it can also style your hair with a variety of combs that come with the clipper. This clipper is small and easily held to reach the back of your head and the neck area. It comes with a rechargeable lithium battery that will work for about an hour without a cord. The beast will cut through any type of hair and is easy to use once you master the shape of the clipper. Many people who travel frequently enjoy this trimmer for its smaller size and the sturdy traveling case that comes with it. While this is mostly for shaving heads, it is also strong enough to shave facial hair easily without pulling. If you want to style your hair, you will need to purchase other blades which are available from Skull Shaver.
The Philips Norelco Do It Yourself Shaver is another heavy duty trimmer. It features a separate head trimmer that makes shaving the head quite easy. For those who want to trim their hair, the clippers come with a rotating head. This makes it easy to reach all positions by yourself and it great for left handed persons. The trimmer comes with a rechargeable battery which lasts about 60 minutes, enough to finish your cut. The shaver comes with two blades: one for short trims and one for longer trims. Other attachments are available if you need a different size blade. However, each blade comes with 14 options that can be easily changed by the user. So, the two blades provided have more options than two. All of this fits into a compact, rectangular case.
Depending on your needs, there are great clipper options out there to use for self-grooming. While it is still nice to treat your self to a professional stylist at times, most men will save time and money by learning to to their own grooming. Each of these clippers comes with a video available on You Tube that is very helpful for new users to these products.
