Proper clipper and trimmer maintenance is a crucial every time you perform a hair cut. MODERN spoke with BabylissPRO barber/educator Harry Hernandez, @houdinistyle who recommends the following 3 steps for each client:

Step 1: Clean clipper blades of excess hair buildup with a small brush.

Step 2: With the clipper blade running spray BaByLissPRO All in One Clipper Spray across the blade with two passes.

Step 3: Turn off the clipper or trimmer and wipe any excess lubricating residue.
