New Launch: First Clipper Designed To Ensure No Bumps

  • One of the biggest concerns for men is that cuts, scrapes, redness and sensitive skin are a necessary evil when it comes to grooming, because the majority of men develop bumps on their skin after a very close shave on their face*.
  • More and more men worry about hygiene when sharing a hair clipper tool with other people at their barber*.


This August, Philips introduces the first clippers designed to ensure no bumps and less rash. The blades reduce the risk of cuts when clipping your hair or beard, offering the confidence of a precise cut and shave without the humiliating damaged skin. 

Whether you’re looking for a clean cut on your head or sharp and defined edges, the new Philips Clippers are innovated 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.

In 2017, Philips Male Grooming celebrates 78 years of innovation and commemorate this with the launch of the new Philips Clipper specifically designed with the African man in mind.

The two clippers in the range, the Philips Hair Clipper Series 5000 – Pro Clipper and the Philips Hair Clipper Series 3000 – Home Clipper offer blades designed to avoid cuts and bumps for optimal skin comfort, close precision and durability; ideal for a touch-up at home or a professional barber styling.

The Philips Pro Clipper is intended for a powerful expert trim, cut or shave. Its chrome matt finish is complemented by a smart textured handle for a comfortable grip, and a 2.8m cord to give a greater reach and allow you to move around easily while clipping. Compared to the Philips Home Clipper with a lacquering and textured high gloss plastic finish and a 2.4m cord.

The Philips Pro Clipper gives full creative freedom with seven click-on combs, including 3mm, 6mm, 9mm, 12mm, 16mm, 19mm and 25mm length options, as well as a styling comb and scissors, while the Philips Home Clipper comes with four click-on combs to give you additional freedom to play with multiple hair styles.

The new Philips Clippers’ robust design promises to become a hair-loom for generations to come. Its strong steel blades are manufactured to withstand chips and cracks lasting up to four times longer than the leading brand, while its state-of-the-art copper motor coil will outrun its predecessor four times over**.

A bump free cut or shave with less rash, now that’s smooth.


The Philips Hair Clipper Series 5000 – Pro Clipper (RRP: R499) and the Philips Hair Clipper Series 3000 – Home Clipper (RRP: R349) are available at Dis-Chem, Clicks, selected Edgars stores, and Takealot, and comes with a 2-year worldwide guarantee.

*In 2014 Philips conducted an in-depth qualitative study consisting of 20 barber interviews, 20 consumer focus groups with eight participants per group and 40 in-home interviews in SA, Nigeria and Ghana.

**The linear motor runs up to four times longer compared with predecessor model.
