" ...  I started using the #1 under arm with good results over the trimmer built into my electric razor.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Finally a clipper that fits a head. ... It gives an even cut after some practice. ... I've cut my hair 3 times without even considering a recharge.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I have been using normal hair clippers for a few years now at home, and have always cut my hair as short as the clippers can go. ... It cut shorter, more even thanks to the curved blade, and was much lighter and easier to handle than the basic clippers. ... This may be a little more expensive than a regular pair of clippers, but it is worth it no doubt.  ...  "
comment
" ...  It's a great hair clipper, rechargeable, the curve is great easy to do ears and side.  ...  "

" ...  LOVE THESE CLIPPERS  ...  "
comment
" ...  I have shaved my head weekly for over a decade, and this is by far the most comfortable, easiest trimmer I have ever used. ... My last trimmer was a Wahl balding trimmer because I like to keep my hair one tiny step up from bald, which the Wahl did very well. ... This one, without any guard, trims my hair just a little longer but it is so quick and easy to use I just trim my hair twice a week now if I want.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Simple to use, the shaped cutting edge is the same shape as my head .  ...  "
comment
" ...  Love this clipper. ... Wide blade makes for a quick cut. ... For about a year now, I have been using the Wahl Color Pro Complete Hair Cutting Kit, #79300-400T, which is a corded model. ... The Wahl is still a very good clipper. ... All due respect for barbers, for a 3mm cut all over, I can do this myself just fine.  ...  "

" ...  I've been using a typical Wahl shaver for years to shave my head and it was ok. ... Having no cord to get in the way makes shaving so much easier. ... What I love most about it is the shaver is wider that typical shavers like my old Wahl so I can shave my entire head in only a few minutes as it covers more area.  ...  "
