What Are Hair Clippers?

10 Best Hair Clippers For Men 2018


So, in as simple words as I can write, hair clippers is just a tool that you use to shorten or remove unwanted hair on any part of your body.  In this article about 10 Best Hair Clippers For Men 2018,  I will be talking about hair clippers, the various brands, and the best time to clip your hair. Let’s get started!

According to Wikipedia, ‘A hair clipper (often individually known by the apparent plural hair clippers in a similar way to scissors) is a specialized implement used to cut human head hair. They work on the same principle as scissors but are distinct from scissors themselves and razors.'[1]


When Is The Best Time To Clip Your Hair?

Of course, the best time to clip your hair will depend on:

  • Your preference for style
  • Your time available
  • Your budget to get it done – whether by yourself or a  paid stylist

Keeping all those above points in mind, you also need to be aware of the state of your skin. It is best to clip your hair when the skin has been ‘warmed’ as this makes the hair easier to manage, just as a suggestion. You can cut the hair wet or dry as you choose. There are trimmers which can facilitate a wet or dry cut as needed. I will include them in the 10 Best Hair Clippers For Men 2018 list below.

What Are The Benefits Of Clipping Your Hair?

Basically, the main benefits of clipping or trimming your hair are:

  • Create clean hair ends so that they won’t be prone to splitting, breaking
  • No snagging on your clothing or furniture (wherever you may sit or stand)
  • To maintain a certain style

I am sure that you may have others in mind, feel free to share your thoughts about this in the comment section as well.

In this list of 10 Best Hair Clippers For Men 2018, doing my research, I noticed that the Wahl brand seems to have conquered the market in the number of great tools it offers, so don’t be surprised when you see the suggestions.

Wahl is a family-owned business and an industry leader in grooming products. Wahl ‘invented the first consumer cordless beard trimmer in 1984’ and continues to make outstanding products of great quality. The company maintains live customer service support which speaks a lot for their loyalty to the customer. Wahl is also conscious of the impact on the environment and strives to reduce it.

Ideally, I hope you will be able to find one to do the best job for you from this 10 Best Hair Clippers For Men 2018 review!

As a woman, I trim my hair with designated hair scissors, this is easier for me. Although I must confess, I sometimes use my husband’s trimmer for a close shave for my legs and underarms. What is important for me is the precision of the trimmer as well as the portability – the cordless factor.

I suspect the reasons might be different from the perspective of a man.

    I have an Oster brand, not the one you have mentioned, the model escapes me right now but it has done a good job for me for many years. It was highly recommended when I got it so probably an older model.

      Hello there, Craig.
      Thanks for stopping by. Yes, Oster is not much of a popular brand, however, it has made its mark. I am glad that you found the article useful.

    Hi Michelle,
    I usually use trimmer to cut hairs in my body, legs and arms. But recently the hairs in these areas grow faster than before and the trimmer is not strong enough to cut all the hairs. I need to have a hair clipper for this purpose. Panasonic Milano All-in-One Trimmer looks good. What is your opinion? Thanks for your review.

    1. Michelle Post author

      Hello Anthony,
      Thanks for your visit.
      Well, whatever you are eating, it is doing your body good!! Sometimes, I wish the hair on my head would grow faster. I think your choice is a good one, especially as it is ideal for close shaving and I think the closer you shave, the longer the time before your new hair grows in. Of course, nothing tried, nothing achieved. If the budget is right, give it a go!
      Let me know how it goes for you and good luck.

    I have had many clippers and trimmers, I prefer the Wahl. They are comfortable to use and cut better i think. The biggest problem I found with others is binding up, this can cause pulling or gouging not to mention additional maintenance time for the unit.

      Hello Jim,
      Thanks for dropping in!It is nice to have feedback from a guy who uses one of the mentioned trimmers, and better still, that he likes it!
      I once used a trimmer and it caused me pain because it pulled my hair a wee bit too much, so I can identify with you on that point.
      Come back anytime and share your thoughts, Jim.

    I used to own the Wahl Professional, and I am glad it is on the top of your list. It was recommended to me by a professional barber. I use to cut my son’s hair as a boy, then finally he needs a professional barber, which happens to be my brother in law. So I end I up giving it to my brother in law, and it still works! It is a great machine. My brother in law loves it too.

      Hey there, Den.
      Thanks for stopping by. It is great when readers have experience with the products that I review. And especially if it is a positive view. SO happy to hear that Wahl still lives up to its name. I guess your future as a barber is not in the cards? LOL
