These professional hair clippers from Oster take the cake when it comes to smooth cutting, even on thick hair. They’re made to last as they’re made from valox material (also used in car production).
They use detachable blades which have an antimicrobial treatment to make them more hygenic for use on different heads. Blades are easy to remove for cleaning – and you absolutely want to do that regularly.
Many of the reported issues with these (or other clippers) are due to lack of maintenance. But, all parts are serviceable and replaceable. There is also a clip for hanging and the on/off switch is very easily accessible.
Although these are professional hair clippers, they’re super easy to use and they cut through thick and wet hair efficiently. But, you should know that they’re on the heavy side. They’re hardly the quietest hair trimmers either. And then, there’s the price.
Still – they’re totally worth it if you take head shaving seriously, and it never gets hot in your hands, even if you're using it constantly.
Home or pro model: Professional - make no doubt about it.
Corded or cordless: Corded and you get an ultra-durable, thick 9' cord with it (that's longer than average).
Combs/guards, attachments, and settings: In addition to the detachable blades (available for different lengths), you get:
- left taper
- right taper
- blending comb
Blades: These clippers use detachable blades and you get two antimicrobial, cyrogen-x blades, the #000 (1/50″) and #1 (3/32″) - you'll need to swap these interchangeable blades out to achieve different lengths, though you can use the guards if you don't need a whole lot of variation.
The blades do detach easily with just a screwdriver and you can purchase additional blades (13 sizes are available).
Motor: The heavy-duty, single-speed, universal motor holds up under all day use. It may not be the quietest out there, but it's not going to have a meltdown.
What else do you get: You also get a blade guard, lubricating oil, clipper grease, and a cleaning brush.
Price: Yes, this is one of the more expensive hair clippers, but it is designed for professional use. And, while it isn't included in Prime, it does come with free shipping.
