How to choose a hair clipper? Compare and find the best
For a lot of people, a haircut simply means a number one or two, or perhaps a number five for those less confident in the shape of their head. Hair clippers are used by many barbers and its not unusual for people to pay ten or twelve pounds a time (perhaps more in London!) for a simple cropped cut using a pair of hair clippers. This is fairly surprising considering how many clippers are on the market for a reasonable price and how easy it is to clip your own hair with one of these models.
History of the hair clipper
Hair clippers have their history in Greece where it was traditional for all male students to have their hair clipped with manual hair clippers (and later electric ones) but this was actually banned for safety reasons and to promote personal choice in the 1980s. The same practice is familiar in the UK as it was the standard treatment for soldiers joining the military until very recently.
Manual hair clippers are very old but electric hair clippers were invented by Leo J Wahl in the 1920s and these are the forerunner of what is available on the electric razor market today. Usually made of rust resistant stainless steel, the blades cut hair to a very short level with little fuss and difficulty. An attachment is added to the blades to hold the blade a greater distance from the hair leaving more hair uncut. These attachments come in various sizes so that the user can choose exactly what length they want their hair. Compared to scissors, the clippers provide a more consistent cut that ensures every blade of hair is the same level. They are also faster than cutting with scissors and have the advantage that you can cut your own hair with hair clippers without danger of making a hash of it.
