Braun Silk-Epil 9 9-579 women’s epilator is for wet and dry use and obviously cordless.  It proudly boosts with 7 extra different heads and attachments.

So I am going to give you an overview of how every head works and what its functions are since I have been testing it for a long time.

This is not the cheapest device and you can get it for a little bit less from online but basically since it costs so much money.

I am sure Anyone who interested in it would want to know whether it is worth that money.

I have tested it for six months, I think it is a worthwhile purchase for me.

You will get a bunch of different things in the box.   The first time when I opened the box I was slightly intimidated because there are so many things, I did not know what everything was for.

I was confusing to look at them but the special shout-out to the User guide.

The User Guide 

The user guide is really useful for this Braun epilator otherwise you will be confused. Personally, I hate looking at user guides.

But I needed to look at this one because it could not figure out what all the heads were on my own.

You can also see the details on the side of the box too.

So, just open the user manual and I think this will be your best indicator.

If you spend just like half an hour or less than half an hour and reading up on what every single thing does and how you can use it you won’t be confusing later.

It’s got a lot of different things so it was all quite detailed and cleared here.


Wet and Dry Epilator

The Braun silk-epil 9 9-579 is a wet/dry epilator which allows you to epilate the hairs in wet conditions even under the shower.

You can use the epilator or the shaver head to remove hairs with shaving cream, foam, gel, soap or water for soft and comfortable hair removal.

This feature makes the device super comfortable and durable.


Battery Life

Braun engineered the epilator set with a powerful Lithium-ion battery.

It will take 1 hour for being fully charged and provide you 40 min work time.

So, it offering you 40 minutes of cordless performance to remove hairs with any of the heads.

The mild operation will drain the battery less and the turbo power will drain the battery quickly.


Braun provides a nice travel bag with the Braun silk-epil 9 skin spa epilator package.

The bag is very useful for carrying all the things for a trip and it keeps the device dust free.

The package comes with a multi-voltage(110v-220v) adapter charging adapter.

The adapter allows you to recharge the device from anywhere anytime.

This worldwide voltage helps the device to be more suitable for traveling with it even abroad.


100% Waterproof

Braun engineered the Braun silk-epil 9 epilator with 100% waterproof body and parts.

So, you can easily clean the device and all the parts with direct running water for thorough clean.

The device will not face any water causing problems although you sink it under water it falls into tub accidentally.

Since 100% waterproof, you can use it in any wet atmosphere even in the bathtub or under the shower.

Pivoting Heads

The Braun silk-epil 9 heads are very flexible and pivot in different directions to follow every angle and contours of the body to adapt to the skin.

The flexibility of the head makes the device more comfortable for smooth hair removal.


2 Years Guarantee

Braun devices In my experience are usually very well made and they last like forever and ever or at least a very long time.

But Braun silk-epil 9 9-579 epilator comes with a 2-year guarantee.

The manufacturer will replace it if anything goes wrong in that period as well as if there are any manufacturing defects.

The Epilator’s Light

I thought the light to be put on the epilator body was short of a gimmick and it did not really serve any real purpose.

Most bathrooms have like kind of dimmer mood lighting and then you do not see some here maybe on you tend to miss it and this thing is really useful.

It is very bright like an LED,  I think it is so bright and you can just see the hair on your legs and it helps you not miss anything, so that is a genius feature that I would not have thought of but here it is.


The Massage Head

I mentioned there are three different epilator heads with the Braun silk-epil 9 skin spa package. One of them is the massage head.

There are beads on both sides of the massage head.

So, that is what they call the massaging aspect but I think what sets it apart is this a little more distance between the epilator blades.

It is not actually a blade don’t worry. the rotating things and between the skins there is a little more space.

So that is why it is recommended for beginners because if you like a decent removal of hair on your leg or you are trying to epilate it at one time and it is not going to pull it all out together.

So you need to go twice or thrice or you need to do more slowly.

Is Braun Silk-Epil 9 Painful???

You can use the massaging head longer time but it is going to hurt less. I got a lot of questions about how much the epilator hurts?

It all depends on your pain threshold. Does that pull out the hair from the root but do not feel that it hurt too much.

If you waxed, it is pretty much the same and like waxing even if you find it painful.

The more you use it the more your body is going to get used to.

I have been shaving for a long time so I have not been removing my hair by the root have not been waxing end I feel the pain a little bit but it is not entirely unbearable.

I can just do it and I like the convenience of being able to do this in my home rather than going to a parlor and meeting and even waxing at home can do that but it is really messy.


Skin Contact Cap

Now I am going to talk about the skin contact cap.

You will see in the back Arrow, just aligns with an arrow at the back then just click it on. You will hear a nice click it is very satisfying and you have the new head on.

So the skin contact cap is also for your body hair but this is recommended once you are little more comfortable with epilating.

This one will touch your skin more and it will take out all the hairs as you are moving the epilator together.

It is much quicker but it is also going to hurt you a little more but if you are used to it is not going to hurt.

When you open it you always need to remember to put your risk in a little bit light whenever you are epilating, because it is going to put the hair from the root and so it needs the skin to be nice and taut.

Cleaning Brush

There is a cleaning brush since time immemorial. Braun will give you a nice little small hard brush and you can just clean the hair from the inside.



There is a charger with the Braun epilator.

The charger looks like I mean the plugs, I think this is called European plug.

This is basically the standard one that we use in our country(The USA).

It offers the universal voltage 100- 220 volts to recharge the device.

The Shaving Head

I want to talk about another surprise and this is the shaving head. It is a foil shaving head to directly shave the hairs of your body and face.

When you are putting on the shaving head or even the exfoliating brush head later you just need a takeout this whole top part of the device and it is very easy.

It can be used in rectum three different ways, it can give you a close shave and you can use it also trim the hair to a certain extent.

It was really quick, so it is extremely easy to use and 100% waterproof.

You are not going to cut yourself or anything and this is what it looks like I assume that this is something like many shavers- but I have never tried a men’s, Electric Shaver.

My dad has the Braun Series 7 Electric Shaver.

I should have a look at it but I would assume, it is something like that but it has really nifty features.

This head you put on you want to just trim the hair and you don’t want to completely shave. This is the plastic head.

Why This Head?

You might think why do I need a fancy epilator with the shaving head.

I have used a razor for a long time. Now I just tried this on my thigh area, because I am still a little bit nervous about epilating.

There I have never waxed. They are also more sensitive for lower legs and until above the knees.

I have no issue but otherwise, I tried shaving on my thigh area.

It was just so much quick as well as easy and the razor it is kind of a small and it takes more time but the Braun epilator just finish its work within 2 minutes or less than 2 minutes.


Final Thought

Braun does say that obviously this blade will eventually need to replaced and I don’t think it is so widely available but they have just given the Brown contact number, you need to contact them or mail them and they will tell you how you can get it and why I said it was pleasant surprises, it is not mentioned prominently on the outside that there is a Shaver’s head but it is so much better than a regular razor.

If I have to shave, now I do not think I will even feel like using a razor. When I have this it is just so much more efficient and quick.
