Sharing my experience with some tips and guidelines
After some years of having barbers and hairdressers not cutting my hair the way I wanted it to be cut, I decided to purchase hair clippers and cut my own hair all myself. I am glad that I ended up choosing this model. I am very much satisfied to be frank. Out of the package, everything included was in good condition and the blades smelled freshly oiled. The sound of the clipper turning on is really something super cool and awesome to hear
The clipper was cutting just a tad longer than what the 000 position should cut at, so I zero-gapped the clipper
by loosening the blade screws a little bit slightly and pushing the bottom blade closer to the cutting blade. If you do this, make sure that the two blades aren’t actually touching each other, and the cutting blade should never pass in front of the bottom blade. Make sure there is a slight gap between the blades that isn’t visible from a distance. When you’re satisfied with the adjustment, then firmly hold the bottom of the the blade by its sides and carefully tighten the screws. If the blades are zero-gapped but even slightly misaligned (the far left tooth of the cutting blade should overlap with the 2nd tooth of the bottom blade), try redoing it once again to make sure it’s properly positioned. Turn on the clipper for a few seconds and then turn it off and check to make sure the blades are aligned. If they’re not, then adjust the power screw until the cutting blade is properly adjusted and gets fitted. By performing these steps, You will be able to zero-gap the clipper and align the blades properly. Needless to say, it cuts through hair like butter now 💔; the length is also closer to a true 000. Be careful with a zero-gapped clipper: if you don’t press the blade flat against your scalp and use the teeth instead, you’ll get a minor precise cut.
So far, I’ve only done one haircut with wahl super taper 2 clipper and it turned out too great. If you’re cutting your own hair, you have to be careful and slow, especially when it comes to tapering (don’t use the clipper for too long though). The best part is The Super Taper 2 does not pull hair when it cuts and it cuts evenly with proper adjustments. Then I’ve to mention this Wahl Super Taper 2 shaver is not loud to be frank. The taper lever can allow you to blend from #000 (closed, up) to #1 (open, down) in length if the clipper is zero-gapped. The guards are of good quality. When you’re cutting your own hair, use at least two mirrors to see the back of your head and feel to make sure everything is proper. I recommend you to get someone to make sure you are cutting the back accurately.
If you are cutting the hair of multiple people, I recommend you to purchase andis clipper disinfectant spray
This will prevent the spread of blood-borne illnesses. Also, once you are running low on oil, buy a large bottle of Wahl clipper oil; they last a long time. If you don’t oil your blades, your Wahl clippers will perform like junk. Oiling your clippers is not necessary after every cut, but maybe after several (clean the hair off the blades too!). If the clippers are behaving strangely, you may have to oil them, adjust the blades or fine-tune the power screw.
Make sure the guards snap onto your clipper; many people find their guards detaching in the middle of a cut. Make sure the blade doesn’t chew the guard and don’t use the clipper too roughly during a haircut. When the clipper is not in use, keep it unplugged and away from moisture while leaving the blade guard on. If you receive a faulty/damaged product (or) a defective one, then feel free to contact wahl support; this wahl super taper II clipper has an one-year warranty and customer service is great. Note: Do not drop wahl super taper clipper; this one’s frame is plastic. If you want a way more durable strong rough clipper, I recommend you to go with Wahl Senior clipper as it doesn’t get damaged if you drop it down even harshly
Finally, if you are interested in cutting your own hair or someone else’s, (or) if you are a barber, this clipper (wahl super taper 2) is a great option to go with. This will last for a long time with proper maintenance and Wahl super taper II hair clipper is a an affordable and I would say a powerful product, It’s a great step between cheap clippers and expensive ones, I recommend this product to anyone who is interested in hair cutting (or) simply needs an affordable, reliable quality clipper. Wahl is one of the best company which makes universal electromagnetic high quality clippers that will serves world wide.
