Panasonic ER-GP80: Seriously, is this the best hair clipper in the world?
May 14, 2018

At BeautyWorld Middle East in Dubai last week, Panasonic unveiled the ER-GP80, the Japanese brand’s flagship hair clipper. And there’s enough reason to believe this made-in-Japan device is the best in the world.

Made in Japan, the ER-GP80 is built with unique X-Taper Blades, which are specially-designed to reduce stubble and that firmly catches and cuts hair that are often missed.  The stainless steel X-Taper Blades are honed to a 45-degree angle for precision cutting and trimming for efficient cutting performance, reducing stubble by 40%. In addition, this professional hair clipper uses a powerful fast 10000 cuts/min linear motor drive. This power is enhanced with Constant Control, with advanced sensor technology that detects the density of hair and automatically controls the speed of blade movement to assure smooth, steady cutting. The result is a clean cut even with dense hair.

The device features six cutting lengths with three comb attachments, while in terms of height adjustment control, it goes from 0.8mm to 2.0mm

The brand also announced two other new Japan-made professional trimmers– the ER-GP21 and the ER-1511. Panasonic also showcased a new beauty product, an advanced styling iron called the nanoe Hair Straightener EH-HS99.

Panasonic Grooming and Beauty products are available in the UAE at Panasonic showrooms, as well as in major retailer outlets.  They are also available in other GCC markets, as well as in Iran and Pakistan.
