Latest clippers of THIS year - Zay's Barber Supply

If you haven't yet purchased clippers and hair-cutting equipment, there are some compelling reasons to do so. Not all hair clippers, however, are produced equal. Here's a rundown of some of the most recent hair clippers on the market to help you figure out what to look for.

 Philips QC5570 Clippers


This isn't the model for you if you want the coolest-looking hair clippers to put next to your bespoke MC1 Blood Cream and Guerlain Royal Extract aftershave on your bathroom shelf. Step right this direction if you're more concerned about how your hair looks after a haircut than about how sleek the clippers are. Not only does it fit perfectly in your hand, but the head can also be rotated around 180 degrees, allowing you to hit the back of your head, just behind your ears, at the perfect angle.

 

BaByliss Japanese Steel Digital Hair Clipper


BaByliss' hair clipper is more fashionable than most, thanks to its digital screen and precision-engineered Japanese steel blades. But, just as you can't judge a barber's ability to cut your hair based on his own, you shouldn't base your investment on his own haircut. Thankfully, the consistency of our haircut was not a case of style over substance. With a lithium-ion battery that can last up to 160 minutes of cordless cutting time, depending on your abilities, you could cut your own hair, then the hair of your neighbors, before charging it for two hours.

 

Remington HC4250 QuickCut Hair Clipper


With this Remington clipper, there is no equivocation. There's a reason your barber doesn't use a clipper like this: it lacks the precision of more compact models. That said, it's quite the weapon for those who want to keep it short all over without paying too much attention to Love Island-level fading, slipping easily into the palm of your hand like a Wolverine-esque bolt-on. The fact that the longest cut length is only 15mm demonstrates the variety of cuts this model is capable of.

 

Philips Series 5000 Clipper


Even with its generous 2.8m range, Philips' cordless offering doesn't have quite the same maneuverability as those on this list, but for under £40, it has a lot going for it. For starters, it feels a lot more substantial than its price tag suggests, with an ergonomic thumb grip that makes it easy to manage when touching up your own hair in front of the mirror. There are also the many accessories that come with the clipper.

BEST hair product for MEN - Zay's Barber Supply

Best hair products for men

 

Hair products, ranging from hair gel to hairspray, will give you the long-lasting finished barber look that ensures your hair looks great and stays put throughout the day.

When applying any substance, keep in mind that less is more. Often start with a small amount of product, around the size of a 50p coin. If you need to, you can always add more later. Applying too much at the beginning can make your hair look greasy, unflattering, and distract from the texture and shape of your hair.

Here are the best hair products for men, without further ado:

 

Salt Spray
Salt spray will give you the impression that you've just returned from the beach and taken a refreshing dip in the sea – not a bad vibe to have, right?! When you spray salt spray on your hair, it gives it a thicker appearance and a firm grip. This product gives hair length and a matte finish while holding it in place.

Salt spray is suitable for fine to medium hair; thicker hair should avoid it.

 

Hair mousse
Mousse, also known as styling foam, is made specifically for curly hair and works best when scrunched or diffused dried. Mousse's ingredients help curls take on a more defined form. If you have curly hair that tends to frizz, it also helps to calm it down.

When wet, mousse may be added to curly, messy, or straight hair before blow drying. In a blowdry, it will add volume and maintain a strong hold. If you don't want to use any other beauty items after your blowdry, it will have a natural grip. If you're looking for a lightweight product, this is a great option.

Mousse is ideal for sculpting volume and is suitable for all hair styles.

 

Hair Gel
Hair gels are available in three different strengths: low, medium, and solid. Using hair gel before blow-drying will give your hair a layer of weight, making it appear thicker.

There are various strengths to choose from for various effects, such as hair height and length. For eg, if you want a more natural look, you should use a low strength hair gel, whereas if you want drastic height and an uplift, you should use a strong strength hair gel.

Both hair types will benefit from hair gel.

 

Pomade
In comparison to gels and waxes, pomade has become the preferred hair product for men these days. Applying pomade to your finished style will give it a strong hold and a more natural appearance. Slick backs, pompadours, side parting designs, and even messy styles would all benefit from pomade.

Pomade is suitable for most hair types, but it is not recommended for fine hair because it can appear limp and smooth. It's possible that the pomade would stick to your hair. Pomade has the advantage of allowing you to run your hand through your hair without breaking the look.

 

 

Every barber's MUST HAVE EQUIPMENT - Zay's Barber Supply

Hair cutting is a career that never really goes out of style because people need their hair and facial hair cut and styled well in any age, even though it does take a certain level of ability and knowledge. If you are a professional barber, you will need a specific collection of equipment to complete your services. Are you curious as to what they are? So, here are the tools that any barber should have.

 

Hair Comb 

If you're styling or clipping the hair on your head, beard, or mustache, if you're a pro or just getting started, you'll need a hair comb to prepare for any barber service.

Clipper for hair

When you need to shave the hair off your head, beard, or mustache (yours or someone else's) easily and cleanly, a wired or wireless trimmer comes in handy, and it's a must-have barber tool.

Razor with a straight edge

A straight razor comes in handy when you need to get a near shave on your head or face at a certain angle. You might even be able to pull off a good fade haircut with a straight razor if you're a professional with barbering skills.

Hair Shears

One of the most fundamental skills of a barber is trimming and cutting hair, which, of course, necessitates having a pair of shears on hand at all times. Trimming the hair away with shears works better for such cuts, whether you're cutting with the hair between your fingers or pulled over a comb.
