For 20+ years I've been going to a stylist for $65 haircuts. This was the best way I could get a haircut of good quality. To save money over the past 3 or 4 years I've downgraded to shops like Sport Clips, Hair Masters, and even local barbers and these all charge $25 to $30, which would be fine, except getting a decent (never mind good) haircut is a hit and miss proposition at best. Too many times I'd get home and wash my hair only to then find out what a bad cut I got. Occasionally, I'd get an okay or even a good cut but the next time around that person wasn't employed there anymore.
So it's a $65 fleecing or a $25 mystery cut... I did some digging around and came across the Flowbee, but it was expensive at $130 so I rigged up my old Wahl Electric Trimmer to my vacuum and gingerly "went to town." My DIY cut actually came out okay, better than the $25 cuts for sure. But it was a hassle and the vacuum only sort-of worked leaving me with a hair mess to clean up. Since that DIY cut was mostly successful I got the extra confidence I needed to spend the $130 on the Flowbee. Previously I was getting more and more interested in the Flowbee after watching many YouTube posts of user demos.
My first cut with the Flowbee went very well, I was extra careful and I took my time and haircut came out great. What I found out on my next Flowbee haircut was that I didn't need to be overly concerned about doing something wrong, the Flowbee "system" really is simple to use and the product's design kept me from making any mistakes.
I did buy a Norelco Multigroom MG3750 to trim around my ears and detail my neck area, a very good purchase. My old Wahl Trimmer was just too clunky and difficult to use.
It's really easy to a great haircut with the Flowbee!
