Embrace Freedom and Flexibility: Why Barbers Should Switch to Cordless Clippers

This article is for you "OG" barbers out there that are so "OG" that you are still hanging onto your corded clippers. Take THIS as your sign to finally go cordless my friend.

In the ever-evolving world of barbering, staying ahead of the game means adapting to new technologies and techniques. One such advancement that has taken the industry by storm and become standard is cordless clippers. While some barbers may still be hesitant to let go of their beloved corded tools, hopefully we can highlight the (obvious) benefits and advantages of switching to cordless clippers for those who are still on the fence. Prepare to embrace freedom and flexibility as we explore why cordless clippers are a game-changer for barbers.

  1. Enhanced Flexibility and Mobility:

One of the main reasons barbers should consider switching to cordless clippers is the freedom of movement they offer. No more tangled cords or restricted range of motion. With cordless clippers, you can glide effortlessly around your clients, without any limitations or inconvenience. This enhanced flexibility allows for more precise and efficient haircuts, while also improving the overall client experience.

  1. Effortless Maneuverability:

Cordless clippers are designed for easy maneuvering and greater precision. Without the hassle of cords getting in the way, barbers can effortlessly navigate around the contours of the head, creating sharp lines and seamless fades. The lightweight and ergonomic design of cordless clippers ensure optimal control, minimizing hand fatigue during longer grooming sessions.

  1. Improved Barber-Client Interaction:

Cordless clippers promote better communication and engagement with clients. Without the distraction of cords, barbers can focus more on building rapport and providing personalized service. The ability to move unhindered and maintain eye contact heightens the overall barber-client interaction, leading to increased customer satisfaction and loyalty.

  1. Portability for On-the-Go Barbers:

For barbers who are always on the move or offer home visits, cordless clippers are a game-changer. These tools provide the convenience of being able to take your skills wherever you go. Whether it's a photoshoot, event, or home appointment, cordless clippers allow you to maintain your professional standards while adapting to various environments.

  1. Advancements in Technology:

While some barbers may be concerned about battery life, modern cordless clippers are equipped with advanced battery technology. Lithium-ion batteries provide longer runtime and quicker charging, ensuring that you never run out of power during a busy day. Additionally, some cordless clippers even offer the option of dual batteries for uninterrupted use. Not to mention, all of the latest and greatest clipper tech is being released strictly on cordless devices. To be honest, we have not had a new release with a cord on it in years. So if you are still using a cord, you are using out dated technology.

  1. Sleek and Modern Aesthetics:

Aside from their functionality, cordless clippers also exude a modern and sleek aesthetic. The absence of cords adds to the overall minimalist and professional look, elevating the image of both the barber and the shop. Barbers today know that their tools are a part of their "flex", so you don't want to get caught looking like the old cheap barber that doesn't invest in their tools.


In a time where innovation and convenience drive the barbering industry forward, it's crucial for barbers to adapt and embrace new technologies. Cordless clippers offer a myriad of benefits, including enhanced flexibility, effortless maneuverability, improved client interaction, portability, and advancements in battery technology. As you navigate your barbering journey, don't be afraid to let go of the cords and experience the freedom and versatility that cordless clippers provide. It's time to step into the future of barbering.


Traditionally we have always carried every SKU from brands such as Wahl, BaBylissPRO, Andis, etc. However, as of January 2024, due to dwindling demand, we have decided to significantly reduce the number of corded SKUs we carry. We will only restock select few corded clippers/trimmers based on demand such as legacy items like Senior, Master, etc.
