No, to the title, more "shaved" well. I am very happy with my purchase. As usual it came to me within 48 hours, which is a a testament to Amazon and the sellers who ply their wares. The cutter's themselves are very well put together, I have had other clippers but not through Amazon, and I was disappointed because they have been very flimsy compared to these clippers. Sturdy construction, well packaged. I did my hair for the first time and was pleasantly suprised when the clippers were so smooth when cutting. In my opinion I thought the clippers were, money well spent.
