Buying new clippers: how to choose one?
The Beardman is happy to help you compare clippers, but in order to find the right one, you need to have a few things clear for yourself:
- Budget: how much are you willing to spend? You can buy a clipper from 20 euros and prices for professional clippers go up to several hundred euros.
- Desired cutting length: the available cutting lengths differ from one device to another. For smooth results, choose clippers starting at 0.5 mm. With different attachment combs, you have a choice of lengths.
- Apply lines: do you want to apply precise lines on the neck or nape? Or do you want to make figures? In this case, you need clippers for professional use. Best one that is small in size, that way you have more control over it.
- Head and beard trimmer in one? Do you plan to use clippers to trim your beard or mustache as well? Then we recommend Philips clippers. These come with a special attachment comb for the beard.
- Cordless or corded? Most clippers today are cordless. Should you still buy a clipper with cord, make sure the cord is at least 1.5 meters long.
- Size: a small and lightweight clipper will take you on the go, but will also make it easier to apply details. While a larger clipper, again, can be a little nicer to hold.
- Cleaning clippers: a washable clipper is the most convenient. These you rinse under the tap after use. There are also clippers that only have a cleaning brush.
- Easy maintenance: while some clippers require you to replace the blades or lubricate them regularly, there are also maintenance-friendly clippers with self-lubricating and self-sharpening blades.
Are you taking the clippers with you when you travel? Then choose clippers with a storage bag, pouch or case. This prevents damage to the clippers and makes it easier to store all the included accessories.
What is the difference between a trimmer and clippers?
With clippers and trimmers, we distinguish between a trimmer and clippers for head hair and a beard trimmer.
The difference between clippers and trimmers for head hair is in their application. For example, you use a trimmer primarily for detailing and a clipper for the big stuff. In short, trimming or shaving the edges is done with a trimmer, while for the big pieces you use clippers.
Do you want both? Then we recommend Philips clippers. For example, the Philips 5000 Series HC5630/15 was voted best buy by The Beardman.
Conclusion: which clippers to buy?
So which clippers are best for you depends on your needs. Do you use clippers mainly for a bald result? Then BaBylissMEN® Japanese Steel E990E is the best choice. Do you also want to use the clippers as trimmers for detailing? Philips 5000 Series HC5630/15 does it all!
For home barbers, we recommend clippers for professional use. You might then consider buying a separate hair trimmer with it. The best professional clippers for big work is the Babyliss Skeleton gold + GoldFX
Would you also like to touch up your beard? Then consider the Braun Multigrooming Kit MGK3045 This is an all-in-one trimmer and clipper.
You can buy a good pair of clippers for just a few tens of dollars, but a pair of hairdressing clippers can easily buy hundreds of euros. Wondering if there are interesting clippers offers right now? The best deals are listed below:
