The Male Grooming industry has recently come out with various models of water resistant gadgets. With products likes waterproof nose hair trimmers, Wet & Dry Electric Razors, and electric shavers, waterproof hair clippers, shower grooming has become very possible.
'Shower grooming' (and this is not a term I made up myself, check it out) is when you take care of all your male grooming needs directly in the shower, and I'll tell you; it's extremely convenient!
In this post I will be reviewing the three best waterproof hair clippers available on the market.
Waterproof Hair Clippers. Shower Time!
Before we go ahead and review the best waterproof hair cutting machines, I can tell you that there is a whole debate on whether it's better to cut your hair while wet or dry, however we won't get into this here.
What I will tell you is that there are some real benefits gained from choosing wet and dry trimmers.
Hair clippers and trimmers that can be used in wet conditions, give you the obvious advantage of cutting your hair while taking a shower. This means that the wet hairs will not get dispersed all over the bathroom floor and sink.
It will therefore be much easier for you to clean after the job is done.
Another benefit of water resistant hair cutting and shaving machines is that you can use them together with the various shaving gels, foams or lotions available on the market.
This makes it easier and more comfortable to cut the hair. The only issue is that you might get your clipper or trimmer all messy, but hey, it’s waterproof! Just run it under the shower and it will get cleaned up in seconds.
Now, we need to clarify one thing before we continue. All waterproof hair clippers are in fact cordless, since you obviously don't want to go into a shower holding a gadget that's plugged into an electric outlet. However, not all wireless hair clippers are waterproof.
I'm clearing this out since I noticed that when searching for best waterproof clippers, most results that popped up were relating to cordless clippers, which is not correct. In fact we have a completely different list for the best cordless hair clippers which you can find here.
Now that's clarified we can continue on to our reviews; and rest assured that the three clippers we mention in this post can be used in both wet and dry situations.
Review of the 3 Best Waterproof Hair Clippers for Shower Grooming
Now that we understood why you should consider investing in a waterproof grooming gadget, let’s take a more detailed look at the wet and dry hair clippers we think are currently the best on the market.
When we talk about men’s personal grooming goods, the Panasonic brand will often crop up since they have some excellent products in this sector. The Panasoni ER24S Trimmer is definitely one of these.
This is one of the best cordless, waterproof trimmer, yet it is a reasonable priced model that most people can easily add to their personal grooming kits.
Apart from using it as a precision hair clipper, the ER224S can also serve as a facial hair and body hair trimmer.
Panasonic ER224S - Review Summary
A cordless, waterproof trimmer that can be used on the head and body, offering real precision cutting.
- Sturdy Body .
- Stainless steel Blades
- Fully Waterproof.
- Easy to Clean.
- Less Noisy then most other Clippers.
- The Guard is a bit flimsy and it might break off easily.
- Does not allow for a close shave option.
The unit casing has a sleek ergonomic design, with a black and silver color code, a power switch on the front and an LED light that will show you when it’s time to recharge the batteries, which is quite handy.
Many gadgets on the market don’t have this feature, which means you either get the device running out of batteries in in mid job, or else you end up charging it after every use to make sure that it will do the job next time round.
The attachable length comb can be adjusted for various sizes by turning the large dial right or left. This will move the comb up or down to increase or decrease your preferred hair trimming length.
The best part is that there are fourteen different lengths that you can obtain by moving this dial.
This model has spring-loaded, stainless steel, precision blades installed on it which are set at the 45 degree angle, which is the optimum cutting angle for blades.
With this combination the blades on the ER224S should get the job done with one pass of the trimmer over the hair. It will also work well on all types of hair, thick or thin.
Now, for the best part of this hair clipper; you can opt to use it in both wet or dry conditions. This means you can trim and cut your hair either while your hair is still dry, or else you can use it directly in the shower when you’re wet.
This hair cutting machine is water resistant and therefore will not get damaged if it gets wet, and can also be used directly on wet hairs.
It is so water proof that you can also use it while in the bath tub. Now if you’re using the ER224S in wet conditions, it is important to make sure that the device is not connected to any electric outlet at the time.
As with any water resistant machine, the best part of this device is probably the ease of cleaning it after use. I just ran my Panasonic ER224S Trimmer under the running water in the shower and washed the entire device without any issues.After a quick shake to get any remaining water out of the internal mechanisms and drying it off with a towel, it was all clean and ready for next time’s use.
This product pack, however also comes with a cleaning brush which is ideal to help you clean the hairs off the guards and blades if you’re using it in a dry conditions. As with most clippers, the Panasonic model also supplies the lubricating oil in the box, so that you can maintain your trimmer blades in optimum working condition.
Now unlike some other rechargeable machines on the market, the Panasonic ER224S will also operate while connected by cable to an electricity outlet.
This means that if you didn’t notice that the machine’s battery were running low, and you now need to use it, you don’t necessarily have to wait for it to charge before using it. Just plug it into a wall socket and start trimming while it’s plugged in.
Obviously in this case do not use it in wet conditions (ie in a shower or in the bath).
It takes around eight hours to charge the ER224S in full and this will give you approximately fifty minutes of cordless use.
The Panasonic ER224S is a very affordable hair clipper and has extremely good reviews online which I completely agree with after trying it out for myself.
I would definitely recommend this clipper and trimmer for anyone who needs a multi-purposes hair cutting machine for the head, face and body, and which can be used directly within the shower thanks to its waterproof casing.
It really makes your grooming routine more efficient and flexible. When you purchase the Panasonic ER224S, a standard box set will include the machine, a cleaning brush, one small bottle of blade lubricant oil, and an AC charger.
Remington is another popular brand for male grooming tools, and their wet and dry model, the PG6250 WetTech Head, Beard, and Body Grooming Kit is one of their flagship products.
This clipper is a fantastic all-in-one solution for total body hair removal.
With its blue/black plastic body, this wet and dry hair cutting machine is 100% waterproof and can therefore be used in cordless mode.
Remington has patented this feature with the terms “WetTech”.
Remington PG6250 WetTech - Review Summary
An all-in-one wet and dry machine that can handle all your hair grooming needs.
- Can be used to trim and shave all parts of the body.
- Fully Waterproof.
- Hypo-allergenic blades means it's ideal for those with sensitive skin..
- Effective non-slip grip.
- Short Handle makes it difficult to reach certain areas.
- The clipper head is smaller than average which means you need to pass over the area more times to trim the hair.
The ‘WetTech’ feature allows you to use it in water without damaging the device. Grooming yourself in the shower or bath means you can apply shaving foam, lotions or gels to your body or head and use the device directly on the lathered skin which will give you a more comfortable shaving or trimming experience.
The hair trimmer has a circular power button in the front and comes with various attachments that can fit on the head of the shaver to adjust it for the different parts of the body that you want to groom.
The non-slip rubberized grip on the sides and backs which ensures you can handle the clippers with ease and manoeuvre it as you wish along your head or body.
Once you’re ready you can hang it in the shower or bathroom wall thanks to the convenient hook found at the bottom of the trimmer.
The stainless steel blades that are built in the Remington PG6250 WetTech Head, Beard, and Body Grooming Kit are high quality hypo-allergenic blades. Hypo-allergenic blades are essential to minimize discomfort and razor burn on the skin.
Stainless steel blades are sharper and last longer then the nickel blades found in cheaply made clippers and trimmers. They also enable you to cut thicker hair more effectively.
At the top part of the Remington PG6250 we find a metal trimming head. On this head you can attach any one of the five plastic combs of different lengths that come in the box when you purchase this model.
Choose the comb size you need and simply snap it on the clipper head to trim your hair to the desired length. The combs can also be used to trim your beard.
Alternatively the clipper also comes with a foil-style shaving head which you can use for a clean shave of the face.
The Remington PG6250 has a rechargeable lithium battery that powers the motor. Unfortunately the clipper does not come with a charging stand but just a charging plug and cord.
A full charge will give you around sixty minutes of usage time which should be more than enough for what you need to do. Thanks to its LED battery indicator, which can be found within the power button, you can easily know when your battery power is running low.
One of the coolest features of this model is its worldwide auto voltage which adapts to different electricity volts and therefore can be used wherever you are abroad or at home.
Online reviews of the Remington PG6250 are quite positive with many customers who purchased the product giving it a rating above 4 stars, and I tend to agree with the crowd on this one.
With the Remington PG6250 WetTech Head, Beard, and Body Grooming Kit, you can easily get all your hair cutting grooming needs taken care of with one machine.
What’s more; you can do it all in the shower or bath which means you don’t get hairs all over the floor and therefore it’s extremely easy to clean after use.
