The Best Hair Clippers
Only the best hair clippers for men will tame your facial hair, keep your coif in line between haircuts, and attack rogue follicles.

Unless you’re giving yourself a marine cut or mercy killing the last remaining strands of hair from your balding head, you probably shouldn’t cut your own hair; it’s too easy to screw it up. So when we talk about the best hair clippers for men, we’re talking about versatile trimmers guys can use to snip stragglers, touch up the neckline, and keep facial hair in order.
While beard trimmers essentially do the same things as hair clippers, using a tool that saws through thicker hair without the yanking or tugging you might experience when relying on the smaller motor of a trimmer isn’t a terrible idea. We capped our hair clipper selections at $75 and targeted reputable brands and models that will come through in the clutch.
Andis Professional Outliner II ($45)
You may recognize the Outliner II from barber shops, so it’s no surprise that it’s one of the best hair clippers for men. Its carbon steel blades allow precise trimming for beards, mustaches, and the neck area — plus, you can carve your favorite sports team’s logo into your fade! The motor is powerful, but it won’t produce a loud and annoying whir. Its eight-foot cord also provides you with ample room to maneuver. And yes, it’s also safe for guys to use down there, leaving little to no chaffing or irritation when you’re through.
