How long can a hair trimmer last? The lifespan of a hair trimmer can vary greatly depending on several factors, such as how well you maintain it, its build quality, how it’s stored, how often it’s used, etc. A hair trimmer can last approximately between 5 and 15 years, depending on the abovementioned factors.

The two parts that typically wear out first on a hair trimmer are the blade, which loses its sharpness, and the battery, which loses its capacity.


How can I make my hair trimmer last longer?

  1. Clean after use: After each use, make sure to remove hair and dirt from the trimmer’s blade. Use a small brush to remove hair and dirt. Then, you can wipe the trimmer with a slightly damp cloth to remove any residue. Follow our maintenance instructions for hair trimmers here.
