Cut your own hair!

  • May 26, 2011
  • by

So over the past year or so I've been really into DIY stuff. I watched some videos on youtube of people teaching you how to cut your own hair and I figured, sure, easy enough. So once I got over the whole fear of messing up my hair so bad that I'd have to shave it all off, I was actually able to cut my own hair with minimal damage. The problem was, normal hair clippers aren't great for cutting your own hair so I found this Philips Norelco on Amazon. It definitely made things much easier!

The blades rotate making it easier to cut the sides and back of your hair and it comes with two adjustable clipper heads.

It's cordless!!!!

Some people complained that it wasn't cutting close enough but I had no problem with that. You just needa press it closer to your head.

Recommended for anyone who wants to cut their own hair. This thing does the job. It just takes some practice. I know eventually I'll get the hang of it but for the next few weeks/months my hair will look kinda jacked up.

So you can say I've become a clipper fan: a Philips Norelco clipper fan!

What did you think of this review?

About this product


Cut your own hair. Even in hard-to-reach spots. Cutting your own hair has never been so easy. Introducing the Philips 180° Hair clipper--the first hair clipper specifically designed for do-it-yourselfers. With its unique 180-degree pivoting cutting unit and its ergonomical design, the clipper handles almost like a brush and allows you to reach all areas with ease. The hair clipper can be used both corded and cordless, and comes with a powerful battery that allows up to 4 haircuts (60 minutes running time). As with all Philips hair clippers, there aren't extra pieces to juggle: this clipper has simply two integrated guide combs that adjust to cover all hair lengths up to 7/8in. Once a length is selected, the guide comb is locked to ensure a clean and even haircut. The "do-it-yourself" hair clipper comes with a click-on precision trimmer for finishing up the neckline, sideburns and fine edges.
