Hair Length Settings & Combs
HC5550 comes with 2 attachments guards which can be adjusted to 15 length settings. In addition to that, it also comes with a stubble comb.
The stubble comb gives you a cut of 1.5mm ( about ½ inch ) which is suitable for most people but not all. Some of you might be maintaining a much shorter shadow look stubble for which you will need it to cut down to 0.5mm to 1mm. Unfortunately, this trimmer would not do that for you.
You have the option to trim without any guard but that will give you a much shorter length ( about 0.2mm). For those who have a dense beard, this length can still give you a shadow look.
It can also be sued for normal shaving as the blades are quite sharp but it will not give you a shave as close as a shaver or a safety razor would.
It is important to mention here that the combs are quite fragile in quality. They would not last long in the hands of a heavy handed person. It is advisable to use them carefully, especially in the beginning until you get enough practice to attach and remove them.
You get a wide choice of lengths and best is to start with the higher length and move down gradually till you find your preferred size.

Cleaning is very easy as it is washable under tap. So, no messing around with a tiny brush to clean the blades. However, the manual tells you that you must not submerge it in the water.
