Wahl Magic Clip and Wahl Beret Pro Lithium

Posted by

Probably the 2 best clippers in Australia at present. First- the Magic Clip. Boasting a Pro Lithium battery for longer performance and crunch blades for a faster feed of hair for more efficient cutting.  Light to hold this clipper packs a punch strong enough for an all day performance at your barber shop.

Next up, the Wahl Beret trimmer.  This is currently my favourite trimmer-all the benefits of cordless with sharp blades which are great for edging up sharp haircuts.  The blades are snap on too, so they are a breeze to clean. Another thing I like about both the Beret and the Magic Clip is the corded/cordless option.  If your clipper is running a bit weak you can plug it in and use it as a corded clipper/trimmer.  Quite a few other cordless options sit in a dock and limit you to cordless use only.
