    Clippers or Trimmers?

    For the past few years, Mrs Frostlich has been using clippers to get rid of the poofy hair that grows outward from the side of my head but refuses to grow on top. No guard and I've been satisfied with the results.

    However, while Mrs Frostlich has been on vacay I decided to go to a local establishment to have the hairs cut. The nice middle aged lady asked to use trimmers vs clippers with no guard. I gave her the OK and the result was delightful. Near squeeky smoothness and could only get closer with a razor.

    Thing is I never knew there was a difference between trimmers and clippers. For fathers day I think I'll treat myself to a new set of trimmers as they're evidently more effective for my needs. Any recommendations for trimmers?

    Have you considered a hair system?

    Didn't know there was a difference. I use Oster clippers with a 0 guide (1/8") and trim every two or three weeks.

    Just make sure your nuts don't get clipped.

    Didn't know there was a diff either...until today. Gotta cut once per 10 days or it gets poofy. Will check the Oster. Thanks.

    I picked up an Oster Sculptor Cordless Clipper/Trimmer # 76560-020 for about $85. I comes with a 000 blade, which just enough stubble to secure my hat in the winter. It has two blade attachments, that allow 1/8" and 1/4" cut as well.
    $85 seemed like a lot at the time, when you can grab a crappy set from Duane Reade or CVS for $12-15, but my trimmer is going on 14 years now, and I use it
    on myself every three days 9 months out of the year. And have given at least one thousand mohawks to my youth rugby teams over the last few summers.
    Keep it clean and oiled.

    In the milder months I use a Headblade, which is a handy little shaver that uses disposable Gillette blades, and leaves a nice cue ball appearance.

    I've had a Wahl clippers (I think, didn't know a difference) for over 10 years now. No problems. Keep it clean and oiled. I use no guard and it leaves just a 5 o clock shadow.

    There is this new procedure now where they actually make an incision in the scalp and push the hair together. Or you could try the hair from your ass, it might make you smarter.
