How to Select Small Hair Clippers

Weight: When selecting a small hair clipper, consider its importance, as a heavy clipper can strain your hand while cutting.

Noise: Look for a clipper that runs quietly and smoothly without excessive noise.

Detachable Comb Attachments: Many top hair clippers have detachable comb attachments, allowing you to cut hair to different lengths easily.

Magnetic Motor: A small hair clipper’s motor is essential for performance. The magnetic engine utilizes magnets to generate power and provides precise control.

Pivot Motor: Pivot motors are more potent than magnetic motors, quieter, and generate less heat. They are commonly found in clippers and trimmers.

Consider Your Needs: Different hair clippers have various motors, each with specific advantages. Consider your needs for cutting thick or wet hair, power, noise level, battery life, and ease of use.

Blade Guards: Blade guards regulate the length of the cut and are usually marked with numbers indicating the haircut size. Choose a guard size that suits your desired hair length.

Blade Size: Select a blade size that is at least as long as your longest hair part to avoid uneven cutting.

Self-sharpening Blades: Look for clippers with self-sharpening blades for longer-lasting sharpness and a great haircut.

Ear Combs: Accessories like ear taper guides can help achieve desired haircuts and simplify trimming nose and ear hairs.
