“ Brand: Babyliss / Type: Hair Trimmer „
I thought I would write a review about a gift I purchased last year for one of my sons for Christmas.This is the Babyliss for Men Titanium Clipper Set.
Now my son has liked to keep his hair fairly short and in the last couple of years he has been shaving it completely. Now you might say why buy him a set that contains different cutting clippers, well I just thought that if in the near future he decides to grow it longer he can at least cut it to whatever length he wants with the help of these clippers.Also Hubby wanted to give it a try!
The whole set comes in a handy neat leather look luxury case, with a zip that goes around the top, then this opens up to display all the items that you get with this set. There certainly are a few bits and bobs here!.
Now firstly the clipper is quite large and is black in colour, being made from a heavy plastic, with a silver disc on the front saying "BaBylissformen" next to this is a black button for Turbo boost. On the left side you will find the 5 position adjustment lever. This allows you to increase or reduce the cutting length of the hair.At the bottom there is a red light that comes on when you are recharging this clipper.
The main blade is made from Titanium and this is where you will decide on which of the 8 clipper guides you wish to put on. Now Hubby always goes for a No.4 look, which isn't to short. The different lengths are;
~~~Grade 1 = 3mm~~~
~~~Grade 2 = 6mm~~~
~~~Grade 3 = 9.5mm~~~
~~~Grade 4 = 13mm~~~
~~~Grade 5 = 16mm~~
~~~Grade 6 = 19mm~~~
~~~Grade 7 = 22mm~~~
~~~Grade 8 = 25mm~~~
This can be used either cord/cordless so on first purchasing this it is best to charge continuously for 16 hours,this will give you about 40 minutes charge. So this is best charged maybe overnight.After 6 months this needs to be discharged and recharged for the 16 hours again.This will help give the rechargeable batteries optimum capacity.
As well as the 8 clippers you also get;
~~~Also includes Battery Operated Trimmer with 2 comb guides~~~
On switching this clipper on you will be met with quite a loud buzzing noise, like most razors make. You then just glide it over the head and will find that you get an even haircut all over. It really does a good job and is something you can do for yourself! I'm still trying to tell Hubby this, as he thinks I'm the only one who can do his hair!!
With all the other attachments it's pretty much a "Mans Beauty Box", as they can do their sideburns, beard, moustache and shave the back of their necks if they are hairy!!
Now the only problem for me is that when my son shaves his head ( and being 6'2" ) he tends to look like a thug and it can be quite strange for me to see people give him a wide berth when he has just shaved his head, as I know he wouldn't hurt a fly!! So we shouldn't judge people by what they look like!!!!!
When I purchased this it was from Boots and was on special offer half price for only £19.99, but I can only see it now for around £40. So if you are looking for a gift for a hairy man then this might just be perfect! Also saves loads of money from not having to go to the Barbers!.
I will give this a good 5 stars as it performs really well and gives you a professional look.
