Bold guy

I'm looking for a good quality clipper to shave my head. I want to do it myself. Any clipper recommendations? I did a quick research but I cant decide. The price range is between $20 and $200 ... and I'd rather not pay $200

Why do you want to do it yourself?

I got the same clipper that the barbers use. It's just a $50 chrome Wahl clipper. Easy to clean, comes with all the combs for different height adjustments. No need for a $200 German precision instrument.

Ive been bold my whole life but about 4 years ago decided to be even bolder and shaved my head. Been through several clippers and like these alot.

Water resistant, easy cleanup, nice cut.

I've been shaving my head with a Wahl clippers for over 5 years. Within the last year I decided to go straight bold. With some Shave Secert and my Gilette Fusion Proglide, it's a beautiful thing. When I'm to lazy to lather up the head, I use the Panasonic ES8243A for a nice close electric shave.

My buddy who has been shaving with a clippers for over 10 years highly recommends the "Wahl Peanut". He says it's the fastest and closest shave he has ever had with a clipper.

I think it's the "How to Be Bold" gay edition

"Do something unpredictable. What could you do that would completely surprise the people who know you? Wear high heels? Take a dance class? Bold people aren't afraid of trying new things"

Thanks for the recommendations.

Man, I've been shaving my head since, shit, 1992. Anyhow, razors and cream take too damn long. I just shave dry with Norelco. the 8200 or 7000 series is all ya need.

I use a wahl trimmer kit for the goatee and basic manscaping. Both of these should cost you less than $110 total with tax.

It's the opposite for me; I find if you prep your head first, I can have a clean shave with a razor in 10 minutes or less. With my electric I feel I have to go over the same spot 3 - 5 times to get a close shave. Plus, the razor lasts a good 18 hours before I feel the stubble. If I shave before bed with my electric, I wake up the next morning with stubble.

Maybe my electric shaver sucks though. Not sure...

Well thanks to this thread, I finally went completely shaven instead of just using the buzzer without a clip. I only have an electric razor, but I'm tempted to get a safety razor and cream and do it nice and close. I like it so far, but it felt weird against my pillow last night.
