This is good for a really close shave for my black dudes/dudes with sensitive skin.
post #32 of 411


Just bought this after my conair crapped out on me. I cut my hair every 2-3 weeks and I give most wahl, conair, andis clippers a shelf life of about 1-2 years so buying it for $21 seemed okay to me.

I also have the andis pivot pro for line up and shaving my mustache. goatee down.
I think I've figured out why time slows down when your high. It's simply because when your high, you are truly in the moment. You can truly "see" it for the first time. Think about it.

To be honest, the professional level clippers are a better value. They cost you twice as much, but will last years and years. Plus they get the job done 4x better.

Hey what's that little tool that helps you align the blades on the andis trimmers?

I remember they were posted on here a while back, but I don't remember what they were called.

About the thread though...

I have the regular Andis Outliner the one without the T blade (probably going to upgrade to those promate blades since you guys recommend it), I have the Wahl 5 Star Seniors in black and I have all of those color coded guard clips that go on the Seniors to take my hair down if needed, I have the Styleliner 2 that I hardly use, and I have the Andis Masters that I hardly use now too since I started messing with the Seniors more and more.

If you get the Pro-Mate blades, you won't need to readjust them, though. The factory setting is already close. Nice clippers/trimmers you have there! I have all of the same ones, minus the Andis Masters.

I will say this. Since our hair (black men) isn't usually straight, we should avoid putting razors on our faces. We are more prone to razor bumps and in-grown hairs. I suggest using T-Outliners to shave.

Of course you know that you can get a closer shave depending on how dry you face is at the time.
What I do is wash my face with soap and let the soap just sit on my face for about 7 mins. Then I wipe it off, and let my face dry for like 10 mind until it is completely dry. Then I shave with the T-Outliners.

post #43 of 411
Anyone recommend a good set of clippers for me? I shave my head once a week with no clip so it's a close shave. I don't go down to the skin, it's extremely close though. My wahl clippers i've owned for at least three years and they are dull as hell. Bought them at Target back in the day, don't know much about this stuff so i don't know what's good. Looking to spend $40 max. Thanks.

EDIT: Came across this, looks pretty good and within my price range.

Those are liners that you posted. I wouldn't recommend them unless you're trying to go really really close. They will cut closer than a 0. For your price range, something like the Wahl 5-Star Magic Clip would be a great choice. Affordable price, outstanding clipper.

The stock blades aren't bad, but the Pro-Mate blades cut much better and you don't have to adjust them any closer.

this is for the fist question...

yea so, i dont like my mustache/chin hair veyr long at all, but its to short to just cut with the blade its self, i might as well shave if imma do that.... i have the andis outliner... not with the t-blade...(had that joint but i would be so scared to hit my eyebrow wile doing my line up)...

any ways.... can i use the outliner i have, with clippers on it? so i can trim my facial hair? I want like the smallest guard possible...
i copped some on amazon, but the dont let the blade move, so it doesnt cut... and i have the ones from my old t-outliner but those dont let the blade move to much either...

sorry if this is confusing... please help

Nah, I get what you're saying. When I trim beards, I always use clippers with either a 2 guard (2/8 in) or 1 guard (1/8 in). I know what you're talking about, and it's those guards that click onto the Outliners, right? Liners aren't really meant for taking hair down to a desired size. They are meant for outlining. I suggest you invest in some clippers if you really want to trim your facial hair. They don't have to be expensive ones, but just know that the cheaper ones will occasionally pull on the hair.

Also, I need an explanation behind your avy laugh.gif. I always catch myself staring at it for 15 seconds.

If you needs guards for the Magic Clip, I'd get these. The color coding makes them very easy to tell apart:

Haha, nice story.

OK, so there's a lot of lower end clippers out there that can get the job done. I'm just not sure which ones specifically because I've only ever used the higher end professional clippers. I'd look into some Wahl or Andis clippers in the $20-30 range.
post #54 of 411
man screw them expensive clippers. no needed if your cutting your hair only

I got the wahl 5 star clippers but i just bought the Andis Envy clippers for $28 that on a comparable level to the seniors

I got some wahl 5 star clippers for sale. probably will post it in the for sale section here and andis t liners with pro-mate blade

@ Trav T, you should check out the Pacinos app on the app store. its alright, its kinda like the vids that cakinisrandy and vickthebarber do, but pacinos is the new hype. i thought he was whatever though.

if anyone is looking for a pair of clippers to just take down facial hair, wahl designers for 36 dollars are pretty good for the price.

post #58 of 411
yeah youre right i didnt see that magic clips were that cheap. i thought that they went for more. i agree with you though in that investing in a pair of clippers like masters or fast feeds would work better than buying a cheap pair of clippers. clipper oil is also a necessity too. always gotta keep the blades oiled.

i recently just ordered some oster speed lines from altantabarbers. waiting for them to get in tm.
