Easy to Handle with 180-Degree Rotating Head
Thanks to the innovative 180-degree rotating head on the Do-it-Yourself Hair Clipper, you can trim your own hair with ease and precision. Instead of trying to move your hand or arm into an uncomfortable and difficult position, you can simply rotate the trimmer's head to achieve the angle that gives you the best reach. The rotating head has a 41-millimeter cutting width that lets you cut more hair with each stroke, and it provides a consistent and even cut every time.

Easy Adjustments for the Perfect Length
With 20 length settings between a #1/2 and #9, the Do-it-Yourself Hair Clipper gives you the options you need to create the haircut you want. It's easy to adjust to the length setting using the integrated zoom ring. Simply turn the wheel until you reach the right length for your hair--check the length settings on the side of the comb for accuracy.

Contour-Following Combs and Skin-Friendly Blades for Comfort
The Do-it-Yourself Hair Clipper features 2-D combs (big, small, and precision) that move slightly up and down to follow the contours of your head for a smooth, even, and comfortable haircut. Both the combs and the stainless steel blades feature rounded edges that prevent scratching and increase comfort.

Precision Trimmer Contours Around Ears and Trims Sideburns
A precision trimmer is included for contouring around the ears and trimming your sideburns. This handy attachment ensures you'll always have a well-groomed look.

Easy-Clean Design
The Do-it-Yourself Hair Clipper is fully washable for easy cleaning. Keep it neat and tidy by simply running tap water over the combs and blades. There is no maintenance or lubrication required with this easy-to-use clipper--simply use, wash, and pack away for the next time.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I've been cutting my own hair for probably over a year now using the Philips Norelco QC5170 180-Degree Hair Clipper so naturally I was excited to try this do-it-yourself hair clipper. After a few haircuts, though, I must say that I can't really tell that much of a difference. When comparing the two, the only significant difference I could find was that this model is washable.

So, if you've seen the two models and aren't sure what to get, well then I guess this one is better for the washability because both seem to work well. Here's my list of pros and cons, which (with few exceptions) applies to both.

Pros:
- Cuts very well. I have thick hair so I was nervous that a wireless clipper wasn't going to be able to actually cut like a professional. It does. Sometimes you gotta go over the same spot a few times to make sure everything is even, but otherwise, this beast could shave you bald in a matter of seconds. Also, I'm quite impressed that the blades have stayed strong and sharp even after a year of use.

- 180 degree angle. I wouldn't necessarily call this feature THE selling point, but occasionally I find adjusting the angle to be beneficial in getting odd areas of hair. 90% of the time I just keep it upright, though.

- "Adjustable zoom ring" - I really like that there are so many length possibilities. Personally I prefer the 1 - 5 numbers on the QC5170, but the same concept is featured here and it lets you play around with how close or unclose you want the clipper to shave.

- Good charge life.

The rotating head is a great idea, and it makes reaching all sides of your head a lot easier. Unfortunately, the plastic guides are very soft and flex if you push the clippers to your head. This means that you end up with closer to a #1 shave in the middle of the clipped area, and the actual setting near the edges.

The first time I used the product, I ended up clipping my entire head with a #1 to make it consistent. The second time, it was better, but you could still see some differences in the length of the hair on my head. The third time I tried extremely hard to use the clippers without applying any pressure. It was hard, and took a lot longer to cut my hair than normal. At least that time it looked OK.

If Philips would use a stonger plastic that didn't flex, the device would rank 4-5 stars

Very satisfied with this unit. The swivel head is very useful, especially for cutting the left side of the head using the right hand. You swivel it 45, then 90 degrees one way to cut from the back of the head, and 45 then 90 degrees the other way to cut from the front of the head. Nice height adjustments with a wide range. It is difficult to get hair to stand up enough for larger guard lengths so clippers can trim the tips off, but that is the art of hair cutting. I suspect that is why at salons they do it by hand with comb and scissors. I use a brush to help it stand up on top just prior to the clippers coming in. I use #6 on top, #3 on the sides and back, and #2 on the lower sides and back, in that order. I do it once a week just prior to a shower, and have a small canister vacuum cleaner to clean up the small amount of hair in the bathroom. Bathroom has great light and mirrors. Just prior to showering, I plug unit in to recharge then put the vacuum away. It is recharged soon after showering and dressing and I put it away for next week's use.

Well...... when I first got the Philips Norelco Qc5530/40 Do-It-Yourself Hair Clipper, I took my time and was really careful. I had never clipped my own hair before. I am close to 70, and this was my first try. I read the instructions. I read all of the reviews. Then I carefully tried to clip in the direction of the hair. I set up two mirrors so I could be careful to cut in the right direction and that I would not take too much off. I was using the largest attachment and had the clipper on the longest hair setting.

It was coming out OK but I was much too timid. I was afraid of botching my haircut and having to hide-out in my home for a week or two until it grew back.

Well...... today, I blundered into a few videos on YouTube showing how other men cut their own hair. They cut their hair quickly, in all directions, up and back, up the sides, across the sides, up the back and over the top of the head, etc., in ALL directions, over and over again just like they were combing their hair! Plus... they didn't need to use a mirror!

I tried to do the same thing. Without the use of a mirror, and without regard for my well being, I threw caution to the wind, turned the little sucker on, and then started clipping in all directions as calmly as I could, just like I was combing or brushing my hair. It turned out GREAT!!! I LOVE it! No more waiting in line for a haircut. No more spending the bucks on a haircut! No more wasting good gas money driving to the barber! Who says that you can't teach old dogs new tricks! :)
