With hairdressers and barbers closed for business until 12 May, men have been enlisting the help of their friends, family, and housemates to help them keep their barnet in shape.

Whether you’re letting your wife loose with the scissors or your friend try out their steady hand on your head, there’s no denying that not all trims have gone to plan.

The best way to keep control of your hair, both literally and figuratively, is to invest in a pair of hair clippers.

But given that once lockdown is over, it’s unlikely we’ll entrust it to anyone other than our barber ever again, it seems a bit of a waste of money.

Well, not when you pick up an affordable pair - and they do exist.

To help you keep ahead of spending on your head, we’ve rounded up the five best affordable hair clippers available for delivery right now.

Hold tight, help is just around the corner.
