What's the difference between hair clippers and hair trimmers?
If you're new to the cost-effective world of trimming your own locks and you're not sure whether you hair requires a pair of hair trimmer or clippers, then allow us to guide you in your decision making process to make sure you pick the perfect hair styling device! Whereas a hair clipper is designed to tackle bulk hair cutting on larger areas (in a similar way to hair cutting scissors!), it can't make cuts that are extremely close to the skin. A hair trimmer on the other hand, is specifically designed for edging, outlining, dry shaving, and even a touch of light shaping on smaller areas. These smaller areas of the head include the back of the neck, around the ears, and around sideburns to achieve sleek, neat edges and provide an ultra-smart finish to any haircut.
As hair trimmers are designed to get close to the skin, it's understandable that you might worry about the chances of accidentally catching your skin in the blades - especially if this is the first time you're attempting an at-home haircut! While many hair trimming blades are incredibly sharp to provide a quick cut that doesn't tug on your skin for a more comfortable experience, if the blades are correctly positioned within the trimmer, they should never cut your skin. As a result, you'll be able to snip away with confidence after checking that the blades are never misaligned following hitting or dropping.
Important details to bear in mind before attempting a home haircut
Feeling a little nervous about attempting your first home haircut with a pair of hair trimmers? Don't worry (it'll grow back after all)! Ideal for maintaining and general hair upkeep, hair trimmers are most suitable for (as the name suggests!) effortlessly trimming those necklines, sideburns, and ear arches with a steady hand. Before you start snipping away at your neckline, bear in mind that your hair should be damp, and your hair trimmer should be set to have the taper level in the closest position. Use in the standard, upright position and carefully trim in an upwards direction to target patchy, neckline growth. If you haven't got a friend or housemate nearby to help, try using a mirror to ensure you don't miss any areas for a smarter finish.
For those tricky sideburns, ensure they're also damp before you begin and then comb your sideburns in the direction that they're growing. Adjust your hair or beard trimmer to the closest position and then adopt an inverted position as you gently trim your sideburns. For best results, cut in a downward direction until you achieve your desired sideburn shape. Trimming hair around your ear arches also works best when you're using the inverted trimming technique and holding down your ear. Use a single-direction motion, and you'll look (and feel!) like a brand new person in no time!
