Amazon presents a regularly updated list of the most wished-for products in men’s hair trimmers and clippers. It is probably little surprise that it is pretty similar to the best seller list.
The most wished-for item is the hugely popular Panasonic ER-GN30-K Vortex Wet/Dry Nose and Facial Hair Trimmer. Here is an excerpt from one of more than 1,800 Amazon customer reviews:
This is the first time I’ve used a trimmer and I love it. Wasn’t sure what to expect, whether it would hurt or if I would be sneezing all day. None of that happened. The trimmer is:
– very easy to set up
– requires a AA battery (not included)
– operates at an acceptable noise level (low humming sound)
– gets rid of hair with no pull or tuck feeling
I used this for my nose and ears and it worked great. The rounded cap on top has a blade on the inside, the blade is placed slightly lower than the tip of the cap. This helps avoid any skin tucks, making it completely safe to use. There is a small opening in the top cap that can be exposed by rotating the head of the trimmer. The opening here is what makes the trimmer washable, it lets water in to wash the blade and also drains it out.
The list price is $20, but at the time of writing it was selling for less than $12.50 at Amazon.
The second most wished-for product is the Wahl 79300-400 Color Pro 20 Piece Complete Haircutting Kit (picture). It has a list price of $41, but at the time of writing was selling at Amazon for just $19.
Third on the most wished-for list is the Philips Norelco NT9130 D-Finer Precision Trimmer, for nose and ear hair, which was recently named by Amazon as its top-selling men’s grooming product of the past 15 years. It has a list price of $20, but at the time of writing was selling at Amazon for $18.95.
