Hair Clippers: Bring The Salon Look Home

By Julia Brown

Gone are the days when a hair stylist or a barber is limited to the traditional pair of scissors when it comes to tools for cutting hair. Now, there are literally hundreds of tools to choose from when you think of styling hair, be it for men or women. Along with modern styling techniques, manufacturers of hair styling products have developed state. of-the-art equipment to help barbers and stylists make their jobs easier.

A hair clipper is an example of such essential tool. It used to be available for professional use only, but now there are hair clippers which can be used at home to give a simple home haircut that salon-styled look. Whether you are a professional hairdresser or if you just want to use the tool at home, there are several factors that you should first consider if you want to buy the perfect hair clipper and get your money's worth:

Q. Can it be used for both wet and dry hair?

A. The latest hair clippers available can be used to cut both wet and dry hair. This offers more styling options, especially for professional users. Be it a quick haircut or a more detailed hair sculpturing, they can now choose to work with either wet or dry hair, depending on their styling preferences and the customer's needs.

Q. Can it cut different hair types?

A. Yes! There are several hair textures, from very fine to coarse and brittle, so choose one that is suitable for all hair types.

Q. Are hair clippers big and bulky? Could I fit one in my purse?

A. Most hair clippers are already handy in size, but it is better to choose one that fits in the contours of the user's hand. This gives the user a firmer grip on the tool so that the hair can be styled easier.

Q. Is the blade adjustable?

A. Some have this ability, some don't. Check if the hair clipper can cut different hair lengths. Choose one with adjustable blades. This type makes for a better styling variety, as the user can quickly change the length of cut by adjusting the blade position. Also make sure that the blades are for heavy-duty use.

Q. Is it noisier than a hair drier?

A. Check on the product package to make sure that the power of the motor will meet your styling needs. You also do not want that annoying buzz while using the clipper so make sure that the motor is quiet.

Make sure you get a hair clipper with good quality. The latest state-of-the-art hair clippers in the market feature a titanium blade, as compared to the usual metal razors of regular hair clippers. Titanium-coated blades stay sharp twice as long as the regular blades, so why settle for anything less? A good, quality hair clipper -no matter how expensive. is a sound investment, especially for the professional users.

- Look for a sturdy casing to make sure that your hair clipper will last for a very long time

- Check if the hair clipper does not require to grease or oil the internal parts. There are maintenance-free variants available

- Some brands of hair clippers have rechargeable batteries, which you might want to consider as well

- Check if the hair clipper is designed for both home and professional use

If the hair clipper that you are thinking of buying has most of these qualities, go ahead and purchase it. It will make the task of hair cutting and hair styling a breeze.
