Re: Hair Clippers

Depends what you mean by break the bank. Ive gone through loads over the years, Personal experience is Wahl is the best brand, by miles. theyre just solidly built. wired, as opposed to batteries are best. my recommendation would be https://www.amazon.co.uk/Wahl-Baldfader-Ultra-Close-Clipper/dp/B0785...
