The Best Clippers for Scalp Micropigmentation

When it comes to choosing the best clipper for scalp micropigmentation, there are a few key factors you should consider. First, think about the specific size and shape of your head – do you have an oval or round head, or perhaps a narrow or wide shape? Different clippers work better for different shapes, so this is an important consideration.

You should also consider the type of blade that your clipper uses. Some blades cut hair very close to the skin, while others are designed for use on longer hair or thicker beards. For gentlemen that are rocking a shaved-look you want the cut to be very close or else you’ll give away the “secret” to your SMP (and make sure to shave every 2-4 days). Finally, take into account any features that are important to you, such as an ergonomic design or a quiet motor.

In the end, there are many great clippers available for scalp micropigmentation, and the best one for you will depend on your individual preferences and needs. However, some of our top picks include the Andis T-Outliner, Andis Wireless T-Outliner, and the BabylissPRO GOLDFX Outlining Trimmer.

The following product links has affiliate links to Amazon at no extra cost to you.

This one is first on my list because of how affordable and durable the trimmer is in light of how frequently we have to shave our heads. It comes with a powerful electromagnetic motor which ensures even, clean and smooth cutting all the time.

The T-outliner Beard & Hair Trimmer has a powerful high-torque rotary motor with quality machines drive components to allow for professional-grade shaving at home. The Bump Free Technology prevents razor bumps and irritation by providing a super close, clean shave without over-cutting the hair. The carbon steel blades are durable and stay sharp longer than other blades, maintaining long term sharpness without pulling the hair. This all in one device is suitable for those that have scalp micropigmentation and are on a budget.


BUILD LIKE A BOSS – This trimmer is built to last with a solid construction that feels like it will last a lifetime. Plus, it’s reasonably priced, so you won’t have to break the bank to get a quality trimmer.

GET A CLEAN SHAVE WITHOUT RAZOR BUMPS – The diamond-finished T blades provide a bump-free shave without causing irritation or razor bumps. You’ll be able to get a super-close, clean shave every time.

KEEP YOUR BEARD & HAIR TRIMMED – With this all-in-one device, you can trim your beard, hair, sideburns, and mustache with ease. Perfect for those that are lucky enough to grow a beard.

Andis Professional Corded/Cordless Hair & Beard Trimmer is a heavy-duty machine designed for professional-grade shaving at home. The high-torque rotary motor with quality machine drive components allows for consistent power with or without a wire, while the 7,200 SPM generates minimal noise and retains long-term availability. This is a cordless version of my first pick. The surprising thing about this trimmer is that even though it doesn’t sound as powerful as the corded version, it cuts as good or even better than the original.


GET CLOSE CUTS – This trimmer is perfect for a close shave. With its deep tooth carbon steel blades, it can easily cut through hair without having to go over the same spot multiple times.

LONG LASTING BATTERY – The lithium-ion battery in the Andis trimmer is one of the best in the business. It can last up to 100 minutes on a single 1 hour charge and has a voltage of 100-240V.

WIRELESS POWER – This trimmer doesn’t need to be plugged in to function. You can get consistent power with or without a wire, giving you more flexibility when using it.

BaBylissPRO® GOLDFX Outlining Trimmer is an eyepleasing cordless and corded trimmer that features an exposed T-blade with 360 ̊ view. The DLC Titanium Ultra Thin Blade (FX707Z) can be replaced when needed. It has a high-torque, brushless motor that also runs at 7200 RPM for fast and efficient cutting. The Lithium ion battery will run for 2 hours on a single charge and the all-metal housing helps to protect the trimmer from damage during use.


DURABLE & LONG LASTING – This trimmer is made of high-quality steel which makes it durable and long lasting. The all-metal housing also protects the trimmer from damage during use.

GET THE CLEANEST CUTS EVER – Super quiet and powerful, this trimmer gives you the cleanest cuts with ease. The titanium-coated blade is ultra thin and sharp, making it perfect for all of your outlining needs.

SUPER QUIET – The BaBylissPRO® GOLDFX Outlining Trimmer is the first of its kind, featuring an exposed T-blade with 360 degree views.

FIRST OF ITS KIND – The 360 degree view on the exposed T-blade makes this the first of its kind! You’ll be able to get into those hard-to-reach places with ease and make crisp, clean lines every time.

ZERO GAP TOOL INCLUDED – No need to worry about pesky gaps in your trimming anymore. This trimmer comes with a zero gap tool that will help you adjust the blade to perfection.

Our top picks are specifically chosen for those with SMP, ensuring that your investment stays looking great for years to come.

Scalp micropigmentation is quickly becoming the leading solution for hair loss around the world. Compared to other options like hair transplants or hair systems, SMP is a non-invasive, cost-effective, and long-lasting solution that provides natural-looking results. With the increasing popularity of SMP, it’s important to stay informed and up-to-date with the latest products and techniques to keep your treatment looking its best.

In many cultures, physiognomy is the belief that a person’s character or fate can be read in their face. By framing your face with a hairline tattoo that is unique to your features, you can take advantage of this knowledge and present yourself in the best possible light. Check out our post on the cultural significance of hairlines and hair loss to learn more about how SMP can enhance not just your appearance, but set the tone to how people may perceive you.

P.S. I’ll continue to update this list in the future through recommendations but as of now, these are my go-to.
