    Default Hair clippers - recommendations?

    Does anyone have hair clippers at home that work well?

    We need a decent set as we do DS's haircuts at home and want to be able to get his hair tidied up quickly and effectively (he has ASD and haircuts are very unpleasant for him).

    Any particular brand that is really good? I can't recall what brand our current clippers are, but they were inexpensive and aren't top notch. Need to replace them, stat!

    DH has a wahl set which seem to work really well. He's recently replaced them as they wore out.

    Wahl.
    Even the sets at the cheaper end are really good.

    Dh bought this set to get him through until he could get a better Wahl set, but hasn't bothered replacing them because they're good anyway. He cuts his own hair, as well as all of his friends' and they've lasted over a year.

    They're the same as DH's. Work perfectly well.

    Thanks all!

    I'd never heard of this brand, so I'm glad I asked

    And now to shop around for the best price.

    Another vote for Wahl - DH uses them as he does his own hair.

    Another wahl vote here too. DH has had his for about 6 years, uses them every week (clips beard and hair) and we clip DS's hair every couple of months with them too. Still going strong, never had any issues.
