Whether you’re looking for a clean cut on your head or sharp and defined edges for your beard, the new Philips Clippers are designed to give a close precision cut or shave, cutting the hair at skin level. They also offer the freedom to play with multiple hairstyles by simply adjusting the blade and clicking-on different length combs.
“Philips conducted extensive research across a cross-section of men in sub-Saharan Africa; the Philips clipper was developed and extensively field tested taking into account the core concerns that came out in the research – mainly the need to get that clean shaven feeling but to avoid the scratches, cuts and bumps that sometimes develop on the skin,” states George Mudhune, General Manager, Philips Personal Health – East Africa.
“These are the first clippers Philips is introducing in the African market, underscoring our commitment to delivering innovation based on the need of the consumers. Our new clippers cut your hair, not your skin. This not only ensures that you have a painless short and sharp look, but also improves your overall skin health,” Mr Mudhune added.
Razor bumps on the face and head remain one of the biggest concerns when it comes to grooming. A considerable number of men would rather refrain from shaving regularly than have to deal with a bumpy face.
“I love a good, sharp cut and nicely trimmed edges. But I love an unblemished skin even more. If you can assure me that I can shave without bumps and rashes then you have my attention,” said Anthony Mutua, a Kenyan media consultant.
The two clippers in the range, the Philips Clipper Pro (ideal for professional barber styling) and Philips Clipper Home (for personal use) offer blades designed to avoid cuts and bumps for optimal skin comfort, close precision and durability.
