Philips HC7460 Hair Clippers €32

Just on Amazon there to buy some of these and expected to pay the usual price of around £50 or so and was surprised to see them reduced to just £32 with free shipping.

Currently £70 on Shavers.co.uk

^^ the first review on the bottom of the page is a shocker, with pics of the back of the guys head. Nice spot, but think I'll steer clear

The chap is clearly a clown. Wouldn't judge the product by his review.

Was on there today buying one as a gift as I already own one and was, like I said, pleasantly surprised by the price.

Bought this directly from Wahl for GBP35 to Parcel Motel. Seems to be decent.

Bought a skull shaver a few months ago and it’s by far the best head shaver I’ve ever had.

It’s only of use if you fully shave your head though as you can’t change the cut on it.

I've ordered one directly through Remington UK website a few days ago. Haven't got any email of shipment yet though. Shipped to parcel motel address and used revolut, had to change my address on revolut to that of parcel motel address for it to go through. £30 on the website.

How difficult are these to use for a diy job? Do you change blades etc and just go for it?

I had a set years ago in college. Just choose whatever blade and yes go for it. Easy enough to do

Tesco Extras ( and maybe some medium sized Tescos ) stock a few different models from Wahl. I bought one - not the cheapest one on the shelf - the other day for under €25.

Cutting my own hair for years. depends on your style, 2 on the back and sides and 5 on top with a 3 to bridge the cap between, takes practice.
