Hair clippers/shaver

Looking to get a kit to have my SO cut my hair at home. It's starting to get out of hand lol. Anyone have any recommendations?

I use a Conair barber kit (paid like $25 from London Drugs, 12 years ago). Still working and no issues. I cut my hair myself every 2 weeks, I prefer to have shorter hair, I feel more fresh.

My hair grows back pretty quick, even the odd day I mess it up, it'll grow back in no time LOL

Most of the stores online I've looked at are all out of stock for the more well reviewed Wahl clippers I was looking for. Ended up ordering a Conair set from Costco online. Should be here next week.

My hair's starting to look like Boris Johnson's.

I received this from Amazon earlier yesterday and did my cut today. The hard part was doing the back of my head. One hand held up my selfie cam while the other held the clippers. Overall, it took about half an hour and turned out pretty decent.

I tried looking for the Wahl ones but they're sold out everywhere.

been using this for years.
i perfer metal than crappy plastic ones.

Have you SO use 2 digits than you actually need to start off.
I'm usually a #1 but i start with #3 first... and just work the way down.

whatever you do, PLEASE LUBE your clippers cause after 30 minutes (1st few tries) it does get hot (esp summer is coming).

Phillips 7000 Series comes with 23 pieces

i shave my head and i've used different trimmers over the years. philips is great because if something goes wrong they just send you a new one no questions asked (in my experience). i think i even returned something after the warranty period was over and it was super easy.

nowadays i use a wahl senior trimmer, it's basically barbershop grade and asides from the bulky cable, it works amazingly. if you're using it every week then i'd go for something like the wahl. if you're just trying to get through covid, then any cordless one is probably fine, but eventually like all cordless products the battery will crap out.

How much nipple hair do you have that you would need to use an electrical trimmer for lol

Realistically you can cut your whole head, the back of your head just use a handheld mirror and use inverted controls. Pretty trippy

Yeah I went to the barber's yesterday and had to wait.

The first half hour went by, and I thought to myself "well I waited this long already I might as well stay, it won't be much longer anyway". 30 minutes became 1 hour and 1 hour became 2.5 hours LOL.

They jacked up the price like crazy too. When you go in, there are literally dividers in between each person lol.

In the end it was very worth it though. There was no way I'm letting anyone else touch my hair.

My Wahl clippers get really hot too at around the hour mark (I'm cutting my own hair), so I'll try lubing it up to see if that helps. I'm curious if anyone else has any suggestions to fix how hot the clipper gets. It get to the point that I have to take breaks inbetween the cut as it's burning my hand holding it.

I already lube the blades in the beginning before I start, but I think you're suggesting it needs to be continuously lubricated?
