These Wahl hair clippers for men are perhaps one of the best deals you’re going to find. In addition to the brand name, you’re going to get everything you need in one box.
All of the attachments are color-coded to make it easy to use this machine. You will need to do a little unscrewing to clean and oil the blades, but it’s not a whole lot of work.
There are a few users that have reported issues with these Wahl hair clippers out of the box, but it appears that the manufacturer is responsive and ready to make the Wahl experience a pleasant one.
Now, you won’t get a super-long cord (they are designed for home use), but you do get a 5-year warranty. But, you'll also need to work on those fades and blends for a long time before these heat up. Luckily, these clippers are good at that.
Home or pro model: It's a home model, but it feels like so much more.
Corded or cordless: Corded; the cord is a little shorter than average at 6'.
Combs/guards, attachments, and settings: You get a whole bunch of comb attachments here:
- No. 1/2 (light green) 1/16”
- No. 1 (red) 1/8”
- No. 2 (purple) 1/4”
- No. 3 (dark blue) 3/8”
- No. 4 (orange) 1/2”
- No. 5 (yellow) 5/8”
- No. 6 (lavender)- 3/4”
- No. 7 (green) 7/8”
- No. 8 (light blue) 1”
Plus, you get left and right ear tapers. And, all of this is color-coded so you don't have to think too much.
Blades: The self-sharpening, high-carbon, stainless steel blade is precision-ground to last longer than other blades. You shouldn't need to replace it for years. You can adjust the blade length with the side taper lever.
Motor: The high-speed, relatively heavy-duty PowerDrive motor allows for a clean, no-snag cutting experience.
What else do you get: Expect a small bottle of blade oil, a barber comb, a styling comb, a pair of scissors, plus a blade guard and ear trim guard, all tucked into a solid storage case.
Price: You’ll pay $20 to $25 for the complete set and you get a 5-year warranty with that. That’s pretty freaking amazing.
