  • They're not exactly stylish

If you judge these clippers by their appearance, you'll be making a huge mistake.

Yes, the body design will make you feel as though you're playing with a toy. And it's true that these are only 4" long and weigh only 4 ounces. But these are merely compact; they're not a mini model.

These are exceptionally good for close cuts and even shaves.

We would obviously suggest them for travel, except the blade (which is strong and sharp) does need to be oiled before use which means it's not totally convenient unless you're happy toting the whole kit with you. If you are, we strongly recommend these - stylists and home users alike truly love these clippers.

Home or pro model: Although they look a little whimsical, these clippers are definitely a professional model.

Corded or cordless: These come with a standard-length cord, but they make a cordless version as well if that's what you need.

Combs/guards, attachments, and settings: You get guides that allow you to cut at different lengths:

  • 1/8”
  • ¼”
  • 3/8”
  • ½”

Blades: You get a single blade though, replacements are available (but expensive). That said, as long as you oil it before use, you can work with the one you get for years.

Motor: Do not be fooled by the compact size of these clippers, inside is a powerful, rotary electric motor. This isn't child's play.

What else do you get: Inside the box, you'll find blade oil, a cleaning brush, and a red blade guard along with your clippers. You also get a 1-year warranty.

Price: You might be tempted to think these are expensive at just under $45, but remember that you're not paying for mini-clippers, just compact ones.
