Wahl is known in the hairstyling industry as the brand used by professionals. Their Home Cut hair shaver is a 20-piece kit with all the bells and whistles you need to get down to the nitty gritty – it doesn’t matter if you just need a trim or you’re going completely bald. The secret’s in the self-sharpening steel blades. Sure, the Home Cut kit comes with a plethora of accessories, but the real stars are those blades. Use the clippers without an attachment and you can get a super close cut, or use with a clipper guide comb for a trim.

This hair clipper kit comes with several clipper guide combs:

  • No. 1 – 1/8" (3mm)
  • No. 2 – 1/4" (6mm)
  • No. 3 – 3/8" (10mm)
  • No. 4 – 1/2" (13mm)
  • No. 5 – 5/8" (16mm)
  • No. 6 – 3/4" (19mm)
  • No. 8 – 1" (25mm)
  • Left Ear Taper
  • Right Ear Taper
  • Clipper Blade Guard

The Home Cut isn’t a razor, so it won’t cleanly shave your head, but it can get pretty close. You will still have stubble, but you will look bald. Use it every day for the bald look. If you’re looking for a bald head shaver, you’ll need to find something with a razor.

A hard storage case houses all of the clipper guides, the Home Cut, several combs, a pair of scissors and two hair clips. A cleaning brush and blade oil are included to service the hair clippers as needed. If you keep your clippers well maintained, they will last you for years and years, according to reviews from professionals and amateurs alike. The Home Cut is a corded product, so you have to use it in dry conditions – no shaving in the shower!

Help and support are always available to customers via Wahl's website and support line. Online you’ll find tutorials on how to use the electric hair clippers and even some videos on how to create a certain type of cut.
