It is very easy to cut the hair. WhilI love that these are rechargeable. No more getting tangled up with cords while trying to give a kid a hair cut or finding a decent workspace in relation to an outlet. Heck I can even cut their hair outside if I want. This clippers this clipper is not silent, he did not seem to notice the noise and was quite comfortable while I cut his hair.Works perfect with my all-the-time moving 2 year old.
