Wahl® hair clippers allow you to obtain a neat shaved appearance from the comfort of your own home. The clippers typically include up to 10 different guide combs of different sizes allowing you to shave hair to different desired lengths. Additionally, the blade on the device itself is adjustable for further fine-tuning. With just a few adjustments, you can easily adjust the clippers to shave your hair to any desired length.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Locate the guide combs included with your clippers. On the bottom of each guide comb will be a number and a length in inches. The lower the number, the closer the resulting shave will be.

  2. 2

    Attach the guide combs by sliding the front end over the clipper blades, aligning the blade into the blade slot under the front of the guide comb. Press down on the back of the guide comb to lock it into place.

  3. 3

    Adjust the blade length on the clippers using the lever on the front left side of the clippers to further customise the length of the cut. Pulling the lever down will expose more of the blades, resulting in a closer shave. Move the lever upwards towards the top of the clippers to decrease the blade exposure.
