You have to admit that if you see the word complete in a product, you are a bit skeptical if it can deliver on that promise. The Wahl 79300-400 Color Pro 20 Piece Complete Haircutting Kit will nearly fulfill that for you. With its powerful motor that cuts through hair without any problems, it is done with the haircutting part of the bargain.
And yes, this includes beard trimming as well. This unit, like most Wahls, will cut through your beard with ease.
If you are a first timer on hair cutting, this is definitely not a problem as the unit is equipped with precise instructions on how to use it. Together with links to the manufacturer’s website and videos that will guide you through different cuts, you cannot go wrong. The kit contains a range of sizes for clipping guards, combs, and even scissors. These attachments are color coded, for easy to follow instructions and effortless use and the guide combs snap on and off without need for strenuous force. There is a blade adjustment lever on the left side of the trimmer which further adds to the convenience of use.
The amazing addition to this kit is the left and right angled guide combs that are used specifically for the ears. This is a really challenging area for barbers not to mention the person who is trying to cut his own hair but Wahl has made it truly easy. This will allow for a total finish when trimming your beard and sideburns – the perfect fade.
If you are still daunted with all those conveniences at your fingertips, you can always start with the thick guide to give you plenty of room to correct any mistakes. After all this is intended to deal with and manage your magnificent head of hair – it’ll easily do wonders for your beard, too.
It has a serviceable plastic cape so all the hairs do not stick on you and they even threw in a pack of blade lubricant. Now with all these features if something still goes wrong and you need a replacement, the 5 year warranty that Wahl provided will easily take care of it.
As with anything mechanical, it does need some cleaning and maintenance. This one is very easy, just oil the blade prior to using it and you should be good to go. Some customers indicated that they hear a buzzing sound and one user advised that it is due to the adjustment screw on the side which can easily be corrected by getting a screwdriver and slowly turning it clock wise until you get rid of that buzz.
The noise level is almost the same as what the majority of barbers have though this is one unit that does not heat up while you are using it.
Do not use without attachments, though, as you are liable to hurt yourself if you press too hard directly. Or you’ll look freshly exfoliated at the very least.
It is a bit weighty but that just builds your muscles, right? Just make sure you use both hands alternately or you might have a slightly bigger right arm than left and what will your friends think then?
To eliminate too much clutter, you can keep the guide combs that you will not need in a drawer and leave only those you expect to use There are 20 pieces in this set, after all.
The Wahl 79300-400 Color Pro is definitely a product that you will be proud to recommend to family and friends. Even moms will get a kick of practicing their newly acquired barber’s skills without being afraid that their kids will have to don a hat to school for the next two months due to horrendous haircut.
So can it shave the neighbor’s gorilla? Absolutely not! But it may open up that same beautiful neighbor’s door when you show her your new haircut and she finds out you are not interested in the gorilla but rather in the owner.
