As someone who’s been cutting his own hair for about 15 years now (I gave up any pretence of needing a hairdresser after a friend told me “baldness is really trendy these days – just accept it”) I need no instructions about how to use a set of hairclippers. But the new Remington Touch Control Hairclipper is so easy to use that neither will you, even if you’re a newbie to home cutting.
The world’s first hair clipper for men with touch-screen technology it allows you to adjust the length of blades in at the touch of a button and by the tiniest of increments (from 0.4mm to 42mm) meaning you don’t just get a good cut you get a truly bespoke one.
Its versatility means you can buzz cut, trim, blend, taper or create the perfect cut for you. It’s perfect for people like me who simply whizz over their heads to keep their hair at a manageable length but is also great for guys with longer hair who want to maintain their style between visits to the barber or, for that matter, for ones who want to create their own unique styles.
It also features self-sharpening Titanium coated blades, USB charging and a Pro-Power Motor to speed the whole process up and can be used on wet or dry hair. And unlike some clippers, you can lock the length setting so you don’t have any cutting accidents mid trim (something I must confess I’ve been a victim of in the past).
A couple of tips to get the most out of your clipper:
1. Keep it charged (sounds obvious but helps!).
2. Dispense with the guard altogether to remove annoying neck hair and to tidy up the nape of the neck.
3. For a professional-looking blended finish begin cutting with the comb guard flat against the head, move it upwards against the grain and flick it outwards aways from the hair as you do so.
The Remington HC5950 Touch Control Titanium Hair Clipper is available from Boots with a RRP of £69.99. You can also buy it from the Remington site where you can get a third off the normal price if you enter the voucher code TCSAVE. Happy clipping!
