Professional Hair Cutting Kit Buying Guide

Professional Hair Cutting Kits are great for a clean, professional looking hair cut without having to go the barbers or hairdressers. Hair Cutting Kits offer an incredible range of options when it comes to getting the exact look that is required from the comfort of your own home.

All Professional Hair Cutting Kits come with clippers as standard but there are a large range of features available on the clippers and lots of accessories to tailor your hair style to just how you like it, so you don’t have to wait for a trip to the barbers.

These kits are also great for grooming different hair types such as nostril hairs, eyebrows and stubble. Professional grooming is a must in the world today and eBay have a massive range of professional hair cutting kits available in the Hair Care and Styling Tools category.

What is a Professional Hair Cutting Kit?

Professional Hair Cutting Kits are essential for grooming. All of these hair cutting kits will come with a professional grade clipper. Some of these clippers will have only one grade setting which is great for trimming stubble. However, a lot of the hair cutting kits available will include detachable grade clips so it is possible to cut the hair as short as is required. The grade clips will normally range from Grade 1 to 8 – including 3 mm, 6 mm, 9.5 mm, 13 mm, 16 mm, 19 mm, 22 mm and 25 mm - every hair length is achievable with the 8 comb guides that come with these hair cutting kits.

Clippers will either be mains operated for continuous power or can be powered by batteries for ease of use around the home. The higher you go in terms of price the better the clippers will generally be, and sometimes a stubble clipper will be included within the set to help get that designer stubble look anywhere and at any time. Of course the clippers are a major part of any professional hair cutting kit, but there is a large range of accessories that are either available with the kit or sold separately. A whole range of hair cutting kits and hair cutting accessories are available to buy now or bid for on eBay.

What is in a Professional Hair Cutting Kit?

To get that exact look that you want, it is very important to have all of the tools to hand as and when needed. It is so easy to keep hair looking trim, neat and tidy with a professional hair cutting kit and can be taken and used anywhere from the home to the office. Most professional hair cutting kits will come with some or all of these accessories to help make sure there isn’t a misplaced hair on your head, body or face. All of these accessories are available to buy now or make a bid on eBay.

Comb Guides

These guides allow you to select the length of hair you want left on your head. These guides normally go from Grade 1 (3mm) to Grade 8 (24mm) and are interchangeable. The comb guides are easily attached and detached and are cleaned with warm water after use.

Left and Right Ear Taper Guide

Ear Taper guides are used with the clippers to create evenly blended tapering in a short haircut.

Battery-operated Trimmer

These are great for trimming facial hair to have nice even stubble and also for rogue hairs at the back of the neck. Trimmers can generally be used for hairs all over the body.

Jawline Blending Combs

Jawline blending combs are great for cutting hair along the jawline which can be tricky as sometimes the trimmers can’t go along the contours of the jaw. Cutting hair along the jawline can be quite painful as well and the jawline blending combs are great for increasing comfort.

Barber's Comb

This is a standard comb which helps to move the hair around whilst cutting. Combs are generally made of plastic and can be used while blow drying hair as well as cutting.

Moustache Comb

This is a small comb to keep the moustache in check. These small combs are great to carry around as well as for use when cutting at home.

Styling Comb

A run of the mill comb that helps to keep freshly cut hair looking neat and tidy to keep you looking your best at all times.


Scissors are one of the most important parts of the hair cutting kit. Hair Cutting Kits come with specialist barber scissors to cut through hair with ease. Be sure to look after them and dry after cutting as the scissors can rust and be unusable.

Sectioning Clips

These clips help to pin hair into place in order to cut different sections and are great for layering and making sure a nice even cut is guaranteed.

Cleaning Brush

Get rid of all the cut hair by brushing the face and neck with a handy cleaning brush. Use talcum powder to brush under the neck and the back of the neck to remove all cut hairs.

Lubricating Oil

This oil should be applied to the skin before cutting to ensure that the skin doesn’t get agitated with cutting. It also allows for the clippers and trimmer to glide over the skin and cut evenly.

Luxury Storage Bag

The bags are great for keeping the kit together and can easily fit into another bag when travelling or using changing rooms.

Most professional hair cutting kits will come with these accessories in order to help maintain your hair at home. However, these additions can also be bought separately in the Hair Styling and Tools category on eBay.
