BaByliss for Men Super Hair Clipper UK Review
Many of the inquiries we get at the Shaving Emporium are based around one question, “Which are the best hair clippers to use that are good value for money?” I never think that it is simple to reply as there are a decent choice of clippers available that can carry out that task.
Nonetheless, there are not very many that are made to last as good as the Super Hair Clippers from Babyliss. Now I want to say from the start that I am not a huge fan of the “Super” part as it sounds like over hyping to me.
In this article we check out if you are getting good value for your money, and if these clippers will suit your needs?
For those who don’t have time to read my full and detailed review, you can click the link below and go straight to Amazon, where you can find more information, and buy if you think they are right for you.
For those of you who have a little more time, then please read my more detailed review below on the Super Hair Clippers.
Quick Product Features Guide
- At the time of writing there are just over 750 online buyer reviews who rate these on average with an 83% buyer satisfaction rating
- You should be able to buy these for under £40 online
- They are professional grade
- They cover grades 1-8 which covers most cuts that you will ever need
- Can be used as a corded unit or cordless
The first thing to notice here is that these are good value at under £40. They have been around since September of 2011 and continue to sell well and on a consistent basis with solid reviews. Below we will have a look at the main features that we believe to be the most important.
Good Quality Build
For certain there are much cheaper products out there. If you ever consider those then it is worth looking at the lower reviews. Almost always these will be about the poor quality build and performance of the clippers.
These super clippers are very well made and they will last. There are plenty of moving parts on hair clippers and these feel really solid in your hand. So yes you will pay a little extra but you are buying high quality.
It is really all about the blade quality and sharpness when it comes to quality. The blades on this clipper are made from hardened steel and they are sharp. This is ideal for people with normal hair types, but even more important for people who have thick hair.
Many normal clippers struggles to get through thick or tangled hair. The blades on this set of clippers are both sharp and tough.
Noise & Vibration
You will always get some vibration and noise when you switch your clippers on. With some of them you would think you are taking a lawnmower to your head. Again these are not too bad in terms of noise and very low in terms of vibration.
One reviewer said, “Metal blades that cut extremely well, noise and vibration is more than satisfactory.”
Cordless & Charging
These are corded so you can simply plug them into the mains and they are good to go. There will be times though when you will want to use them as a cordless option. The performance then relies 100% on the battery.
This one uses a Lithium-Ion battery which is so much better than the older NiCad ones. They charge quickly and there is a light indicator to let you know when they have been fully charged.
Another reviewer said,
“As a hairdresser I have tried them all. I found these very quick to charge and hold the charge for some time.”
What You Get
This product should come with the clippers, scissors, comb, 8 comb guides, cleaning oil and brush, an adaptor and a storage pouch to keep everything neat and tidy.
Customer Buyer Reviews and Scores
The over riding comments that you will see about this set of clippers is the quality of them. It is only when you have used cheaper poor quality products that you realise just how good these are in terms of being well made and lasting.
At the time of writing we found around 750 reviews who gave this set an average rating of 82%. Overall the reviews on Amazon and other websites are positive, though a small number of reviewers did say that they broke in the first few weeks and had to get a refund or replacement.
In the main buyers at Amazon gave these ratings: 66% of reviewers give these a 5 star rating and 13% say they are a 1 star.
One reviewer said this:
Cut very well and very quick and reliable, highly recommended.
Conclusion & Verdict
You are getting good value for your money with the Super Hair Clippers from Babyliss. We did find a few negative complaints but overall the huge majority of people were pleased with their purchase.
We would not hesitate in recommending these to you because they are high quality and great value for money.
