In the middle of my latest grooming session, my good old Philips beard trimmer suddenly stopped working. The battery ran out of energy, but the machine never gave we a hint on that in advance.
I realized it’s finally time to buy a new one – because I’m trimming more and more friend’s beards and I don’t want to risk to run out of power with unfinished works.
I was thinking about a Wahl Detailer first, as many professional barbers are using one, but my home mate lent me his Wella contura to finish the Sunday trim and I was totally convinced. It is wireless, which means it loses power after a while. This might be a no go for a pro, but for my purposes, it’s a good choice as my home is not well equipped with power supplies and I love to be free of cables. I purchased the machine at Amazon.de for nearly 100,00 EUR, I will write a review as soon as it arrives.
Together with the trimmer, I ordered some accessories to make the trim experience more comfortable:
Hair brush to remove stubbles and hairs from face and neck
A hair cutting cape – I have a black one, but it’s nearly impossible to see contours of dark beards on that
Plus some paper ruffles to keep hairs away from customers necks
I gonna test these products and write some reviews soon.
