Philips Norelco Do-It-Yourself Hair Clipper Pro {Review}

When it comes to purchasing gifts for my husband, I find that shopping for him is much more difficult than others.

When I'm stuck trying to find something for my mother-in-law, I know that I can always count on a pretty stationary set. When I'm not sure what to give one of my girls' friends for a birthday present, there are always the toys like Magneatos that never fail to bring a smile.

But my husband? He's far too practical to want something frivolous, so his gift needs to combine form, function, quality, and style all into one convenient, portable product.

Fortunately, that's what can easily be found in the Do-It-Yourself Hair Clipper Pro from Philips Norelco.

When it comes to men's shaving and grooming products, Philips Norelco has a collection that makes it possible for guys to look their best from a clean shave to a good trim. For men, it is easy to see that a trip to the barber can give a boost of confidence and help keep their style fresh, but often finding the time can be difficult.

Instead, the QC5530 Do-It-Yourself Hair Clipper Pro is an excellent tool to get a cut in minutes and allow quick at home maintenance to provide a perfect look. When the Philips Norelco box arrived, right away I was admiring all of the features that would make this a great gift for just about any man.

As I removed the pieces, I was happy to find that Philips had included everything necessary to make this a high quality, easy-to-use hair trimmer.

The included instruction manual had every detail and instruction for this trimmer, but I also liked that it came with illustrated steps that made it easy to get started using this tool by simply glancing at the pictures.

As I checked out the trimmer itself, I was impressed that it truly makes it easy to cut your own hair even in hard-to-reach places.

The 180° rotating head gives 100% reach all around the head and neck, so no matter where the user is trimming, he can reach. Simply select the right angle for comfort and you're set to cut!

At the same time, the versatile range of length settings (a precision comb for lengths between 1 and 3mm, the regular comb for 3 to 15mm, or the big comb for 15 to 30mm) allows a man to customize his cut to his liking.

Each of the combs and the precision trimmer (great for neatly trimming the hair line and sideburns for a sharp finish) easily pops on and off of the base in seconds.

All in all, the Hair Clipper Pro is fast and easy to use... and provides impeccable results! My husband has appreciated how the 2D combs gently follow the contours of his head for a smooth, even cut and that the rounded edges on the self-sharpening blades and combs are designed to avoid scratching the skin for a more comfortable experience.

Having the ability to use this trimmer corded or cordless has provided the freedom to pull this out just about anywhere for a quick touch-up and the fact that the entire tool is fully washable makes for easy cleaning. It's just about the closest thing to having a barber on call in your home day and night!

(Other than the Do-It-Yourself Hair Clipper Pro that I received from Philips Norelco to facilitate my review, I was not provided with anything or enticed to do this review in any way. This review is solely my honest opinion of this product.)

I cut my dad's hair about once every three weeks and recently on a nice Sunday afternoon after finishing I dropped my old clippers, chipping some of the teeth and offsetting the head. I like these that you have reviewed, seems as though they adjust easily and I like that they are cordless. Thanks for the post!

Great review! This would be perfect for both Heath and Hayden, since we cut Hayden's hair at home!
