I never imagined I’d ever write about a haircut kit, much less ponder if I should buy one for myself (spoiler alert: I did, the first time I ran a version of this deal in the midst of the pandemic), but these are strange times. Last summer I hadn’t had a haircut in two months and as the months went by, my appearance started to increasingly track toward “bass player in 1968 psychedelic band,” rendering some kind of DIY haircut essential. At the time, here in Los Angeles all barbershops and hair stylists were closed, and these kinds of clipper kits were off-the-chart expensive — finding one for even $75 was a bargain. Thankfully, prices have settled and I’ve been able to tell you about some really affordable hair clippers. Here’s the best deal yet: Right now you can get a Limural Professional Cordless Clippers kit for $28.09 when you click the product page coupon code and also apply discount code NKVYTWPW at checkout.
That’s about $19 off the regular price of $47 and is the lowest we’ve ever seen this model sell for. Frankly, given the apparent quality of the cordless clippers, I can’t imagine the price going any lower. The kit includes the wireless clipper with a digital status display and five-hour runtime. It comes with six guard attachments (ranging in size from 3mm to 19mm), a comb, barber cape (the kind that traps hair, not the kind that helps you fly) and other miscellaneous accessories.

I’ll be honest: Prior to buying this model, I’d never taken a clipper to my own hair and so I don’t know exactly what to look for in a product like this. But this one has 4.8 stars from over 8,300 reviews on Amazon, and I’ve used it successfully on my own head several times now — I find it works great. So if you’re looking for a way to get a trim without breaking the bank or waiting till the vaccine makes its way to you, consider this kit — and let me know in the comments if you’re cutting your hair at home, or waiting it out until the world opens up again.
