How do I change the length settings of my Philips Groomer?

Your Philips Groomer may come with different trimming combs and attachments. These products can also be used without any attachment to clip the hair very close to your skin (around 0.5mm). Find out here how to adjust the length settings when using these attachments.

Click-on combs

If your groomer comes with multiple click-on combs, you can use these to get the desired hair length. The numbers on the combs indicate the length of the remaining hair after trimming. Simply click-on the appropriate comb onto the appliance ​​​​​and start grooming.

In case you have a device with adjustable cutting element, check the setting of the adjustable cutting element before attaching the comb, to make sure you are setting the right length setting.
