Remington HC5018 Apprentice Hair Clipper UK Review

Remington is a very well known and respected manufacturers of clipper who have been in business for over 75 years. They pride themselves on their quality of products and they are at the cutting edge of technology and innovation. They produce a range of top quality clippers but they also make some cheaper, entry level models. 

 At around £9.99 there are not many cheaper options on the market but they manage to get 4.1 out of 5 in the ratings so its easy to see why they are so popular. You would expect a cheap product for this price normally but its rare that any model scores as high as this in the customer satisfaction rating for such a bargain price.

So what do you get for £9.99.A lot more than you might think actually!

Remington HC5018 Features

  • Self-sharpening steel blades
  • 3, 6, 9, 12, 18 mm guide combs
  • Neck brush, cleaning brush and styling comb

This clipper is extremely cheap and not what you would expect from a name like Remington but don't let that fool you as its actually a really good starter clipper set . For value for money, its pretty unbeatable as you get a full 10 piece kit that will do most things. With the backing of a 3 year warranty you shouldn't be scared of the price.

As you know the blades on clippers come in a variety of materials ranging from stainless steel right up to titanium and Japanese steel and this clipper comes with steel blades. Probably what you would expect at this level.

  1. hi

    I have the Remington 5018 and get on very well with it.

    I am however having difficulty in getting hold of some replacement guide combs. A number 1 (3mm) and a no 2 (6mm)

    If you can provide any advice on who can supply these it would be appreciated.
