Going to a good barber every month can really set you back. So, if you do not have the money nor time to spend then the best solution is getting your own clippers.
Now, there are so many clippers available in the market today that you can choose from.
You can get the consumer grade clippers or get one of those fancy haircut kits that are a little bit more expensive. It is a matter of how much and how often are you going to use this.
These days you can get quality clippers that will provide you with some clean cuts and a perfect trim. We review of these, which is the Oster Fast Feed Adjustable Pivot Motor Clipper.
This clipper is equipped with a steel blade that can adjust between 000 and 1 size. It has four guide combs that give you the freedom to cut different hair lengths, styles and areas of your body. For a more detailed explanation of what the different guide comb sizes mean, take a look here.

The Oster Fast Feed Adjustable Pivot Motor Clipper is a little shorter than most clippers available in the market today which makes it easy to handle and is great for travel.
This particular clipper is also lightweight and is quite handy so it fits comfortably in your hand when in use. The 12-amp pivot motor is definitely its best feature.
Its motor is way above the motor you would normally find in a consumer grade clipper. This means that you get a more powerful unit that gives a smoother cut, trim or shave.
It cuts and shaves pretty well on short hair so you can pretty much achieve that clean look.
Although it has a powerful pivot motor compared to other consumer grade clippers, it has minimal vibration so there is less discomfort when you are using it. It also creates minimal noise.
A few who have reviewed and used the Oster Fast Feed Adjustable Pivot Motor Clipper found that the pivot motor does tend to heat up a bit when in use.
This can be a bit worrying that it might have the tendency to overheat. They found that it heats up when it is left running for 15 minutes or more.
Although there are a few guide combs that come along with this clipper, some who have used this clipper found that these can easily slip off the main clipper.
This can be an issue particularly if the clipper is in use. You may have to keep slipping the guard combs on while using the Oster Fast Feed Adjustable Pivot Motor Clipper or get a different set of combs to use along with it.
Some also found that the housing is not as of high quality as they expected. They also found the guard combs to be of the same low quality as the housing itself.
Since it is made from plastic, it tends to be a little uncomfortable against the skin when using it. It also seems to be flimsy and can break easily any minute. The lever on the clipper also does not move as freely.
A few who have used the Oster Fast Feed Adjustable Pivot Motor Clipper also noted that it does not cut or shave off short hair as much as they wanted. They would have to go over the same spot several times to get it as close to clean as possible.
The Oster Fast Feed Adjustable Pivot Motor Clipper has a powerful motor that cuts and shave hair quite well. For the amount of power its motor has, it does emit minimal noise.
You may have to deal with the clipper getting a little warm as you use it for longer periods of time. However, if you are looking for a clipper that will do the job then the Oster Fast Feed Adjustable Pivot Motor Clipper is a good option.
