Hefty, powerful motorMar 17, 2010
By Mark in Tempe
I bought this today after reading reviews that it has a powerful motor. I usually get a #2 on the side, and #5 on top. I haven't had a haircut in 4 months, so my hair was a long and thick. This clipper cut right through it, no problems. Only bogged down twice.
This is the first time I cut my own hair. It turned out as good as the barber. This comes with good instructions, and links to Wahl's website with videos showing how to give different haircuts. It says to start with a thick guide. But, since I knew I always get #2 and #5, I did that, using #3 & 4 to blend the side and top. Turned out fine.
I usually pay $15 (including tip), but save money by delaying haircuts for 3-4. If this thing lasts 2-3 years, I'm going to save $120-$180. Plus, I'll cut my hair more often.
For the price, I'm impressed with the quality of the clipper. It's heavy and the motor feels powerful. The plastic case leaves a little to be desired. Everything's loose in it. And, I worry the plastic guides won't last long. But, for $20, it almost paid for itself with the first cut.
I'm usually leery of cheap products. I was going to spend $120-$150 for a professional-grade Oster Classic 76. But, since I've never cut my own hair before, I was worried about making that kind of investment. Based on the positive reviews, I gambled on this Wahl. I'm glad I did. The quality is definitely worth more than the $20 price. And, the instructional materials were valuable for a first-timer like me.
I was thinking when this breaks (after the experience I would have obtained at a low price) I might invest in a professional clipper. But, I don't know. If it lasts 2-3 years it's probably a better value to pay $20 for that length of use compared to a more expensive pro model requiring blade sharpening, replaced motor brushes, etc.

Nice for the price -- Updated: Still going strong after 4 yearsJun 25, 2008
By Josh Newman
I bought this kit to replace a Wahl "Designer" which developed a problem after about 10 years of home haircutting and would have cost more to fix than this kit cost as a replacement.
The clipper is quiet and works well. It gives the impression of a lot of power in reserve, and doesn't heat up in the hand. I was pleasantly surprised by the left and right angled guide combs used for the ears, which are included in the kit. They made that part of the haircut really easy. After years of cutting my hair with only the straight guide combs that came with my old clippers, I didn't think I would use them, but I tried them once and I'm very happy I did. They're great, and if you bought them separately, they would go for about half the price of the kit, making the kit a bargain.
The clipper itself is intended for home use and feels like it, unlike my old one, which felt a bit more heavy-duty. But this one does as good a job of cutting my hair, and costs about half as much. If it lasts half as long as the old ones did, I'll be more than satisfied.
Editing to update after a little over four years (probably about 40 haircuts, although I haven't kept an actual count): The clipper is still going strong, without any problem.

A Product that works well and costs littleMar 30, 2007
By Braden Piper
I am a college student, and I bought these hair clippers so I wouldn't have to mess with finding a barber who I can trust to cut my own hair. I had no experience whatsoever with cutting hair, and I've found that it is really easy with these clippers. They come with a number of different attachments that makes the very easy to use without worrying about completely ruining my hair. They also have instructions which aid in learning how to cut, and a nice plastic cape so you don't get hair all over yourself.
Everything works properly, and it works well. Best of all, it is cheaper than most comperable products out there.
I highly recommend this.

Good deal.Dec 08, 2011
For the price, you can't beat it.
The "buzzing" problem people complain about is just their own ignorance to the adjustment screw on the side. Just get a screwdriver and turn it slowly clock-wise until it stops. It happens to ALL clippers.

Must have for a mom of 3 boys...Jul 02, 2011
By Ellen from N.C.
I haven't reviewed anything in ages, but I am so pleased with this that I had to say so. I'm having my 3rd boy, and haircuts for my 2 and 4-year-old boys were definitely taking a hefty bite out of our budget. I knew I had to do something. My sister-in-law taught me how to cut my oldest son's hair on a visit, but I was nervous to get home and go it alone.
I bought a set of clippers from Sally Beauty Supply. They were $40, and I couldn't figure out the directions. Plus, the blades were misaligned, and I had no idea how to change that. The vibration when I cut them on was awful. Frustrated, I returned them and got my money back. Then a hairdresser told me about this kit, and that I could get it at Target.
It is perfect for people who want to cut hair at home. There is a clear, illustrated guide to cutting men's hair for you to follow. They give you clear, illustrated instructions on what the blade should look like before you get started and directions on how to fix it if it's a little off. Mine was, and a simple screwdriver fixed that with no problem. There are plenty of hair guide combs, and the clipper feels heavy duty without lots of vibration. This is a WAY better deal for my money than the overpriced clippers at Sally's.
I have two squirmy boys, but their first haircuts with me by myself went really well. These clippers blended better than my sister-in-law's set. I feel like I definitely got my money's worth out of this set already, and I've only used it once. Everything fit back in the kit just fine, and it wasn't hard to get the hair out with the little brush included.
Tips to giving a haircut to little boys that I've already learned.... 1. Do the haircut outside where you can sweep or blow off the hair. 2. Use long guards to start off with, and only use two guards, something like a 7 on the bottom and sides and a 6 on the top. You don't have a lot of time when cutting little boy hair. =) 3. Coat your kids in baby powder after you're finished. It takes the hair off really well and brushes off pretty easily.
