My first review in a while, i was looking around my room thinking what i should review next, and right in front of me i saw my babyliss hair clippers, i checked the model number and surely enough it was right here on dooyoo, so i thought i'd write a review.
I bought these Hair Clippers in 2009/2010 from Argos, i remember they were very cheap at the time, around £15, so i got them - I cut my own hair regularly, mainly because i'm very cheap, but also because i'm quite talented at cutting hair, so firstly i'll say what you get in the box.
Babyliss Mens Hair Clippers with a cable which i would day is around 130cm.
10 Basic Guards (1-10) Number 1 cuts at 3mm, with number 10 cutting at 32mm.
Left and Right Taper Guards
Some cheap scissors which can barely cut paper, 3 hair clips and a brush, i'm pretty sure you get a little pot of oil too, but don't quote me on that.
The Cut - These Clippers cut hair really well, extremely reliable, i usually go over the area's i am clipping twice to pick up any hairs which i may have missed, this gives excellent results, i very rarely experience any hair being pulled from my head, when i do it's usually because i am rushing so i blame myself for that, not the clippers, if you use a steady speed these clippers glide through hair with ease, i myself have thin hair, but i have used these on both my Uncle and my cousins' very Thick hair, and the cut was faultless.
The sound - This is an important factor when purchasing hair clippers, my old set, which i had from 2006-2009 (not babyliss) were too loud, these clippers however are relatively quiet, you can talk with someone as you are using them, i'd say the volume is about the same as when you hear a plane in the far distance, you know it's there but it's not too intrusive.
Comfort/Feeling - These Clippers are very comfortable to hold, they have a very smooth design, with a rubbery grip layer on the underside, and a shiny plastic covering on the top, they're just so comfortable to hold in your hand, this would probably be my favorite thing about these clippers, the design is so simple and comfortable, again faultless. Also, i should add, that these clippers don't get overly hot, of course this depends on usage, i would say the longest i've used these for is 40 minutes non stop, and after that amount of time they were beginning to get warmish, but not hot to the extent that they were becoming unusable, so i can't complain about the hotness.
This review makes me sound like some kind of Babyliss fanboy, i'm really not, i just can not fault these clippers in anyway whatsoever, you even get a nifty little carry case, what more could you want for £15? these get 5 out of 5 from me.
Thank you for reading my review
Summary: Can not fault these clippers
