Seems like every time I turn around my kids are in desperate need of a haircut. Now I understand why so many of the quick trims of my childhood were done on a stool in the kitchen. All those haircuts and trims really add up! Luckily for my son, his haircut did not include a plastic bowl. In fact, I was able to use the Wahl Lithium Ion Clippers in order to achieve a great haircut. Wahl gave this novice confidence enough to make that first cut.
The 28-piece kit comes in a soft storage case and is very impressive.. With a Multi-cut clipper, full sized trimmer, 14 guide combs, scissors, Barber cape and more, there is something for every grooming need from my husband to my boys.
I remember giving my husband trims while we were dating. Every Summer he sported a no-muss short-clipped cut courtesy of his old clippers. Thank goodness he loved me because I think I snagged his ears more than a few times. The Wahl kit included left ear and right ear tapers that kept me from worrying about my son’s poor ears. If I had snagged him, I am not sure he would have let me keep going.
The kit also came with quick guide filled with tips and techniques to get started. You can also visit wahlkeepitclean.com for video instruction.I followed the guide and started with the longest clippers and finally worked down to the #2 ¼” clippers for the back. Then I used the longest comb for the front and top of his head.
Other than saying it tickled, my son didn't mind sitting for me. He even approved of the final hair cut.
I still have a lot to learn and more practice to put in before I will consider myself good at giving home haircuts, but Wahl made it easy for me. Investing in a good set of clippers will help keep money in my wallet for years to come.
Here is my son’s before and after:
The Wahl Lithium Ion Clipper is perfect for setting up a hair cut station on the back porch. The lithium ion technology offers 50 percent more power and twice the run time. With a full charge, that is 1 hour and 40 minutes worth of clipping time. I am no longer stuck near an outlet for trims. With that kind of battery power, I can even pack my clippers for long trips.
I am thrilled with my Walh Lithium Ion Clipper and highly recommend it for all the guys in your life, big or small.
