When it comes to cutting your kids hair, using a regular sized set of hair clippers can be a nightmare. They’re too big for a start, they’re an intimidating colour, and they’re loud enough to give your child something to worry about. I wasn’t having much success using my regular hair clippers on my child – due to the above reasons – so I thought I’d give the Philips Norelco CC5060 Kids Clipper a go, and see how that faired up. Are they really that much different to regular “adult” clippers? In this review I’ll give my honest opinion on what I think about these kids clippers, and hopefully help you make a more informed decision as to whether they’re right for you. When searching for you kids look through the best cordless hair clippers 2017 to find the best clipper.
First off, and most importantly, I can report that the home hair cutting sessions have been a success since I purchased these clippers (compared to the previous nightmares anyway.) So that at least goes to show that the product is doing it’s job.
I think the key reason is that it’s a lot less intimidating for my child. It’s smaller and it’s a “friendly” blue colour. It’s also easier to hold and manoeuvre on a smaller head compared to the regular sized clippers, so this overall makes the job easier.
I especially like the rounded tips on the clipper comb as opposed to regular trimmers where the clipper comb can actually be significantly pointy. This is a lot more useful than I would have initially imagined, and it simply gives a “softer” cut and the clipper runs more smoothly over your child’s head in a more pleasant way. They’ll thank you for this!
The product is advertised as having a much quieter motor which would definitely be seen as a positive with my kid. The only thing is, it’s not that much quieter than my normal clippers. That’s possibly because my regular clippers are quite quiet anyway, but even so, I thought these would be even more quieter.
On the other hand, if you were to compare these to a lot of “adult” hair clippers, then yes, they would be significantly quieter. I didn’t really know how quiet I was expecting these to be but I guess they’re clippers at the end of the day and will make noise. As I say though, the hair cutting sessions so far since using these clippers have been a noticeable success, so this hasn’t been an issue and don’t think it would be for most people.
In conclusion, the Philips Norelco CC5060 has definitely made cutting my child’s hair a lot easier and thus, does the job they are designed to do. If you want to make the job of cutting your kid’s hair a lot easier, then I’d definitely recommend these. It’s the perfect shape, size and colour, just don’t expect that “quieter” means that it is significantly quieter. Overall, a very happy customer and would definitely recommend this product to parents.
