Wahl 100 Series
Mains Hair Clipper Kit
This is our UK review of one of the very affordable Wahl 100 Series hair clipper kits. Wahl are a very well known hairdressing brand, but this one is at the lower end of their price point.
Here at the Emporium we think this is a very good choice for someone who wants to try out cutting hair at home, but doesn't want to spend a fortune on an expensive hair clipper kit. We class this Wahl kit as a great entry level kit.

How Buyers Rate the Wahl 100 Series Hair Clippers
Overall UK buyers rate these Wahl clippers with an 82% buyer satisfaction rating. We found over 1,700 buyer reviews, and that tells us two things.
First these sell really well mainly because of the combination of a good price and good quality.
Secondly, that the huge majority of buyers have rated these very highly.
That is reassuring because should you decide to buy these, then you will own a very good set of affordable hair clippers, from a very good brand.
What Do You Actually Get For Your Money?
Before we have a closer look at what the buyers actually said, including the pros and cons, let's see what you get for your money.
That is everything you need to be able to complete a haircut in the comfort of your own home. These also have an adjustable taper lever. You can set that to do different lengths when it comes to tidying up the neck line and any other edges.
You can see from the image above that this is not a large kit, but it does cover the basics. The quality of the products are good. The cutting width is 3.75 cm and the cord length is 2 metres and they come with a 3 pin UK plug.
The RRP on these is £12.99 and you can usually pick these up online a little bit cheaper, but prices vary so hard to be 100% accurate.
We think you will agree that for what you get, this is not a high price to pay. Ideally we would have liked to see a barber's cape in there, but those are cheap enough to pick up.
Many home hairdressers simply use an old towel for their hair cutting exploits.
What Buyers Say About the Wahl 100 Mains Clipper Kit
We know that buyers overall rate these highly at 82%. However we like to gather and present all of the information here at the Emporium. The best way we know how to present that information, is to show it at a glance, in the form of a Pros and Cons table.
We have shown that below. Around 12 out of every 100 buyers gave this a poor review, so we have included their complaints in the Con's section. Please be aware though that the majority of buyers (82%) rated this highly just to give the table below some balance.
Buyers will always have differing opinions on products that they buy, and hair clippers are no different. When we checked on Amazon and other commercial websites online, we found that around 12% of buyers said these were not for them.
That is higher than we normally like to see.
On the other side of the equation, 6 out of every 10 buyers rated these as a 5 star product. There were then a few buyers in the middle ranges of ratings.
Ideally we like to see around 8 out of 10 buyers rating these as 5 star, as this is a sure sign of very high quality. This set don't hit that criteria, but the satisfied buyers realise that they are scoring an inexpensive product.
Our Overall Verdict on the Wahl 100 Series Hair Clipper Set
We think the 82% buyer satisfaction is too high and we would have them at around 75%. These are not the highest quality clippers on the UK market, but they are certainly one of the most affordable. It is hard to find a Rolls Royce for a fiver though.
