    What buzzer gives the closest cut?

    • admin says:

      All of the popular hi-end clippers are very similar. I’d recommend Andis’ clippers which will reportedly give you just about the closest cut you can get

    Here’s my personal experience of cutting my own hair.
    It saves time & money and there’s no small talk with the stylist!
    But it pays to get the right trimmer!
    I’ve been cutting my own now for over 15 years, however
    Having now used both the rechargeable types and the
    Battery types, for me the battery types wins hands-down.
    Why? Because rechargeable always seem to run out
    Just when you get to the final stages, leaving the user
    Covered in hair and not knowing what to do!
    ( This is based on a ONE HOUR hair cut )
    My hair is quite thick/bushy, so takes almost an hour.
    Most rechargeables WHEN NEW do indeed last for an hour,
    However, after a few months, they usually drop to 30 minutes
    Or less, especially as most are fitted with cheap Chinese internal
    Batteries these days, that don’t hold full charge after a few months!
    Yep even the newer Lithium types too! These also perform poorly after a while!

    Also the review doesn’t reveal cutting lengths for all models!
    This is important guys! This should have been included for all of them!

    Anyhow, this is my take on it.

    1/Mains power is the way to go ideally.
    The higher power and the fact it won’t cut out half way through your session
    Makes it a clear winner ( that’s why the pros don’t use rechargeables! )
    However, the cable can get in the way
    especially If you’re cutting your hair yourself.
    Plus not safe around water, if using in a bathroom etc.

    2/ Battery is next best, as regular batteries are cheap these days,
    And if your trimmer runs out, while in the middle of a haircut,
    Just pop some more in it, easy! Plus battery trimmers are
    Usually smaller, so easier to handle. Better for travelling too!
    ( Both electric and rechargeable are usually more bulky! )

    3/ Rechargeable.
    Nothing good to say about them, due to the internal
    Batteries tanking out after a few months!
    I guess Rechargeable models are fine for guys that
    Can complete their haircuts in 30 minutes or less,
    As that is all your rechargeable will offer after a few months!

    My advice is to find the best REGULAR BATTERY model you can find
    That offers the most lengths! ( 1mm through 25mm will suit most )

    Just my 10 Cents worth!

      I totally agree with you! The best trimmers I find are the corded wahl detailers. Ive been trying to find a trimmer to replace my 3rd silver bullet rechargable metro. I only use it for clipper over comb holding it like a pen however the battery life absolutely sucks. Any recommendations? If they brought out a corded version, would have bought it in a heartbeat

      Hi Dave,
      I appreciate your 2 cents! I completely agree with your reasons for going the self-haircut route as most men’s hair cuts are straightforward without the need for a stylist. In your experience and based on your comments, what model have you found to work best? What are you currently using?

    Norelco rules in the hair department. Wont use anything else.

    The Oster Juice you have listed at#3, is not $130.. It runs $450-$500..

    I have a Wahl 9916 bought on the recommendation of friends, and believe me I regret buying it from the first cut. Hence I am scared to go for another Wahl even though it’s number 1 here.
    Few questions from those who know about these things:
    Which low cost trimmer above is the best for thick hair and thick beard please?

    • Hey, thanks for stopping by. If you want good quality, you’ll probably want to invest a little more money. With hair clippers, “you get waht you pay for” really rings true. That being said, I’d still stand by the Wahl 79600-2101 mentioned in the post. Hope I answered your questions!
