Cut Your Own Hair

Personal style is a statement and Wahl hair clippers offer a wide array of possibilities with their trimming, detailing, shaving and clipping devices. In 2009, the company introduced the world’s first lithium ion (the most technologically advanced rechargeable battery available) grooming kit. The trimmer delivers a close, clean and efficient trim. It has interchangeable heads that allow for beard trimming, ear and nose detailing, shaving and, of course, hair trimming.

There are many Wahl hair clippers that you can choose from each unique in its own way. Some, like the Deluxe Self Cut Wahl hair clippers deliver maximum cutting power and a soft touch grip for comfort and control when you are using the clippers. On this model, the head rotates, allowing for easy and accurate self cutting. Various accessories are included in each kit. This particular kit contains a blade guard, a soft storage case, a cleaning brush, scissors, a styling comb, a mirror, ten clipper guides ranging in size from 1/8 inch to 1 inch, a left ear and right ear taper and instructions and styling guide. This model can be used with a cord or cordless.

No matter what model you prefer, here are some cutting tips that will ensure that you get the perfect cut:

The first time you cut your hair, make certain you cut only a small amount until you understand the length of hair each guide comb provides.

Attach the largest guide comb onto the clippers and then change it out for a shorter one if this is not the length you desire.

Using long strokes, cut across the top of your head first, and then comb it out before you proceed to see if you will need to do any extra cutting.

Remember to insert the ear guide combs before you trim around your ears to protect yourself.

Always cut around the ear in an upward, outward motion.

When you are finished clipping your hair, push the taper lever up to the close cut position and use on your sideburns and the back of you neck.

Wahl hair clippers have been around since 1919 when Leo J Wahl applied for patents and began manufacturing and selling thousands of them to barbers all over the United States. He passed away in 1957 but over his lifetime he had applied for over one hundred patents for various inventions. The company recently celebrated its 90th anniversary and they still rely on the same principles that got them to where they are now: vision, innovation and customer satisfaction.

One example of their innovation (other than the lithium ion model) is their Sport Wahl hair clippers. This model is used by professional stylists and athletes. It is ideal for all fade style, high and tight and detailing. Athletes use the clippers to trim around their joints. This seventeen piece hair cut set sells for approximately forty dollars.

All Wahl hair clippers are reasonably priced and they pack a lot of accessories in every kit. You really cannot go wrong no matter what model of Wahl hair clippers you choose.
