Clippers that Cut it: Why Cheap Ain't Always Cheerful in the World of Home Grooming

Trying to save a few bucks by going for the cheapest hair clippers may sound smart, but trust us, it's a bad idea...

Those clippers are likely to break down easily and leave you with a useless tool that's just gathering dust. Plus, repairs or replacements can cost you a sweet buck, and that's not even the end of it.

Poor performance and results are another downside of cheap clippers. They just don't cut it (pun intended) when it comes to achieving the grooming results you want. You might end up with uneven cuts, snagged hair, and even more expenses from having to go to the Barbershop earlhy to fix mistakes.

it's important to note that while investing in a good set of clippers is crucial for home grooming, it's also important to choose the right set for your needs.

"You don't want to end up with a set that claims to do it all but falls short in every category" 

It's best to choose clippers specifically designed for the area you plan to groom, whether it's your head, face, or body. So, be sure to consider your grooming needs before making your purchase.

So, invest in a good set of clippers, and you'll never look back. Better performance, durability, and results will be all yours. You'll save money in the long run by not having to pay for repairs or replacements. 

When it comes to home grooming, you deserve the best. So, make sure you choose wisely and save yourself the trouble and expense of dealing with cheap clippers. Check out our top picks for your new pair of decent home clippers, and start grooming like a pro!

Clipper best home clipper for bald men

If you're looking to shave your bald head, it's best to use an electric razor that can easily follow the curves of your skull and provide an even, close shave without missing any spots. Look for a razor with pivoting and adjustable blades that can easily navigate the head's uneven surface. Our barbers recommend the Skull Shaver electric razor for its ergonomic design and rotary blades that cut hair close to the skin without causing irritation. For the best results, use gentle pressure and ensure even contact with the scalp while shaving.  We love the Skull Shaver Pitbull

How to Keep Your Clippers Buzzing: A Guide to Clippers Maintenance

So, you’ve invested in a good pair of clippers. Nice! But, now you need to know how to take care of them. Here are three tips to keep your clippers running smoothly:

1: Oiling  Don’t forget to oil your clippers after every cut. For shorter buzz cuts, oiling every other cut is fine.

2: Clean off the leftover hair  Remove all hair after every cut. When people see your clippers laying around with hair on them, we'll be honest, they think pubes. So lets make healthy habits and clean each time. A small toothbrush can do the job if you lose your cleaning brush.

3: Disinfect  Clean and disinfect your blades at least twice a month, especially if there is contact with your skin, we would say do it each time.

Luckily when you buy a good pair of clippers it'll likely come with oil and a brush, but we’ve got some disinfectants on our top pick list too.

At Daniels Barbershop we do these three steps between each cut, but when it's just your head its a little different and you can take it easy, but care is at the end of the day what keeps your clippers clean and sanitary and alive for longer. 

If you have more questions you can always ask our Barbers in the comment section below.
