Cut your own hair!

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!

Features:
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!!!!

Problems:
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.

Recommendation:
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!

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.
