Remington HC365 Hair Clipper
Advantages: The price and the quality
Disadvantages: Nothing for me
After my bad experience with the babyliss "easycut" clipper I swore off home haircuts for awhile but the time and expense of having to visit the hairdresser every 4 weeks persuaded me to try again with a different brand and model of clipper.
After doing some extensive research online I finally decided to buy the Remington groom professional hair clipper set as it had a lot of fairly decent reviews and the fact it was half price at only £15 on Amazon helped sway me to it.
What's in the box
It arrived in amazon's usual speedy time frame and I was excited to get into it and start using it.
Upon opening the box I found a hard case sort of similar to a workmans tool box where everything was stored. I really like this as it not only keeps everything together but it also stops it from getting damaged and I was quite impressed Remington had included such a good storage case especially considering the price was so reasonable even at the full rrp.
Inside the hard storage case was the actual clipper and again I was impressed, it felt heavy and solid and not just like a piece of plasic that would fall apart within a week. There was also a smaller clipper which is used for trimming the neck and sideburns etc and again this felt solid and good quality.
Besides the two clippers there was also the charger and numerous different accessories numbering 25 in total which seemed a lot for a clipper. There was 8 different sized guards for the main clipper, brushes for cleaning it, a set of clips for pinning back longer hair if you want to cut your sides short but leave it long on top, a comb and a pair of scissors and even a ustache brush and a cape to keep the hair from getting on your clothes.
I have to say that I was really impressed with the look and feel of everything that was included and think it seemed like great value for money.
Using the clippers
I was excited to use the clippers as it had been a few weeks since I had gone to the hair dressers and my hair was looking a little too Worzel Gummage for my liking. Unfortunately I couldn't use them straight away as it had to be charged for 15 hours before the first use. I charged it up overnight and waited until the morning to do it as I was meeting some friends so wanted it done before going into town.
Setting it up to use the first time was a little daunting to begin with just due to the amount of different accessories but I soon found the guard length I wanted and found that the rest of the accessories weren't really needed so it was pretty simple and straight forward.
The clipper itself is slightly curvy meaning that it fit perfectly in my hand and felt really comfortable and wasn't awkward in the slightest. I found that the solid feeling of it really helped me with accuracy as it meant I could twist my wrist around to the right position and the clipper never slid or moved.
Using the clipper was so easy and such a relief after the disaster of the Babyliss easy cut which was painful and lefme with clumps of hair missing. It went smoothly through my hair and was really sharp so there was no pulling or tugging on my hair and the most important thing it gave me a super smooth cut with no track marks or patches missing.
I like to shave my hair to one length all over but not too short and for this it does the job perfectly. The clipper had a lever on the side so that you can also taper the cut and do fancier things with it if you so choose.
The little clipper for the more intricate areas is also fantastic and I manage to do my neck and sideburns perfectly with no help from anyone else and it really does take the unwanted hair away in seconds.
The clippers are ceramic coated which is supposed to make them last longer and the blades are also self oiling which is good for me as this would be somethign that I know I would contantly be forgetting to do.
Once it is fully charged it lasts for quite awhile and you should be able to get a few cuts out of it before it needs charged again but if you need to you can use it from mains but it does state that this will cause the battery to not be able to take as much of a charge in the future if you do it regularly.
I can honestly say I recommend the Remington groom professional hair clipper 100%. It is absolutely amazing quality for the price and looks and feels much more expensive than it actually is.
Remington have included everything that you should ever need for cutting your own hair and best of all it does it quickly and precisely and you don't need to shave your entire hair off to make it look even.
I use it to keep a good inch of hair on my head and at the hairdressers she does this with scissors and charges me £20 for it and now with the Remington Groom I can do it whenever I want at home and do just as good a job as she does and save myself the £20 every month.
It states on the box that this clipper set is the best selling set in the UK and I can definately see why it is even though I have never really seen any marketing for it the word of mouth must be enough.
If you are looking for a clipper set then from personal experience of using a few I definately recomend this one as I really haven't got a single negative thing to say about it.
Summary: Easy to use and brilliant quality
