Wahl 5 Star Detailer Pros

This detailer is made for professional use only, which means in your hands it will feel seamless and powerful. You can cut your own hair, your buddies’ hair, and even your kids’ hair. It has a T Blade for a close cut, it is quiet, and it comes with all the equipment you will need for a professional cut.

You can use this hair trimmer for more than just hair too. This trimmer will not only cut your hair, it will keep you looking tight until your next haircut. Sometimes you just need a little off the back, a buzz along with your sideburns. The Wahl is perfect for this. You can dry shave with ease, so you don’t even have to worry about taking time out for a wash.

Further, you can trim or shave your beard or your mustache. You can also eliminate the hair off the back of your neck and upper back if it grows there. (It happens.)  Click here to read reviews posted about Wahl Detailer Pros on Amazon.

T Blade

The T Blade is specially designed for precision cutting. It is what makes the Wahl detailer professional. You will not have to worry about tufts of hair jutting out from the back of your skull or cutting the tops of your ears as you aim for a close cut.

T Blade technology is a far cry from the trimmers of old. This blade will essentially give you the same shave you get from a barber with red, white, and blue stripes outside his door. If you are aiming for a perfect, baby’s butt shave, the T Blade on this detailer will give it to you. Conversely, if your goal is a close cut, a buzz cut, or just a fade on the sides, this blade will give you that as well.

Peace and Quiet

The reason for wanting quiet is a plethora. Perhaps you have a kid at home you don’t want to wake up from a nap. Maybe your wife is doing yoga. It could be that your dog is hypersensitive to sound. Or, hey, maybe you just want a little peace and quiet.

This detailer will barely make a peep as it gives you a streamlined cut. It has a soft purring sound that is little more than a whisper. Your baby can nap, your wife can meditate, and you can enjoy a clean cut while you rock out to the latest tunes in your headphones.

Squeaky Clean

The nicest thing about these clippers is that they come with oil and a  cleaning brush. Keeping your trimmer in perfect condition requires regular cleaning and oiling. You will have to take apart the trimmer and then brush it down with oil. It is a classic piece of machinery, which means it needs to be well kept.

Because it is a professional set of clippers, the Wahl has the potential to last throughout your lifetime. You can pass it down through the generations. It comes with a power cord, so you are in good shape to maintain your trimmer for life.

Maintenance requires only a quick cleaning every couple months or so. In addition, you can always replace your supply of oil and brush that come with your trimmer. Indeed, you may want to order extra supplies in advance; that way you will be sure to have everything you need for proper care and maintenance of your equipment.

Comb Cutting Guides

The Wahl comes with three comb cutting guides, 1/16, 1/8, 1/4, so you can get as close or as long of a cut as you like. The comb cutting guides will keep you cutting close. You won’t’ have to worry about having an uneven cut or a cut that is longer or shorter than you were hoping for. Once you get used to your guides, you will feel confident that you can get it done with little more help than a mirror.


The cherry on top of this beautiful pie is the ergonomic fit of this trimmer. If you are, for example, a barber on the side, if you run a side hustle out of your garage, this trimmer is the one for you. It molds to your hand, so at the end of a long Saturday of haircuts, after a long week of your full-time job, your hand won’t be cramping up.

Comfort may seem like a non-issue, but in the end, if you can’t enjoy what you do, if you are hurting at the end of the day, you may not want to do it for long. A passion may become a burden, a burden a crippling mistake. These clippers will care for you as much as you care for them.

Wahl 5 Star Detailer Cons

Which brings us to the negative. You have to take care of these clippers. They are, for all intents and purposes, delicate. You need to oil and brush after each use and store them well. Or they will fall apart. That is the worst thing we have found with these hair clippers.
