Wahl Professional Balding Clipper Review

Overall Rating: 4.5

wahl balding clipper

If you’re looking for a hair clipper to achieve (an almost) complete head shave, you need look no further than the Wahl Professional 5-star Series Balding Clipper.

Let’s face it, the name of the product is a pretty good indication as to what this clipper is all about!

This is a professional mains hair clipper that is specifically designed to remove all of your head hair, or at least 95% of it!

Most men who go for the bald look actually prefer a slight covering to give the head some texture.

These clippers are ideal for that look, and will achieve the equivalent of a single day to 3 days hair growth.

Naturally, with this style of cut, it is very easy to cut your own hair.

If you really want a completely bold cut, you should take a look at the very popular Panasonic ES-LA63-S Arc4 Men’s Electric Razor

Features

Chromed Fine-Precision Blade

It’s all about the blade with these clippers!

To cut that close to your head, the blade needs to be sharp, and cutting as close to your scalp as possible.

The Balding clipper blades are fine-toothed and made from surgical quality steel, plated with rust-resistant chrome.

They have a cutting width of 40 mm and a notional cutting length of 0.4 mm.

The blades are set with zero-overlap to achieve a near balding finish.

Basically as close as you can get to your scalp without cutting the skin – “be careful!”

The blades are sharp, and will cut you if you don’t concentrate.

Oscillating Armature Motor

These Wahl Balding Clippers are widely used by salon industry professionals.

With constant use, and getting switched on and off, the motor needs to be robust and powerful.

Wahl doesn’t disappoint with these clippers.

They have installed a powerful V5000 oscillating armature motor that is twice the speed of regular pivot motor clippers.

It is a corded model (with a 2.4 m cable) that ensures the clipper is always at full power.
