Back in 2007 I bought a Flowbee hair cutting tool that attaches to my vacuum cleaner. I figure it has saved me about $200 per year. It is still working great,although it is starting to take a little longer to cut as it is getting dull. I use WD40 in it before or after each use. It has been fairly easy to use. I cut my hair by using the long spacers to match the longest part of my hair and start on the top and front where it is longest. Once I get the top and front as short as i want I stop cutting there and continue on to the sides and back using smaller and smaller spacers. it is best to cut less than more. You can always cut more. I use scissors to do a final trim around the ears and straighten up the back which is tricky even with a mirror.
I have had several people compliment me on my haircut over the years, although if it looked bad most people would probably not say anything so maybe it evens out.
You can get these on amazon here and there is also a competitor.
The price has almost doubled since i bought mine 10 years ago, I did not know that when I made the video, I thought the price had remained about the same, although i don't know now why I thought that.
here is a competitor to the Flowbee but I have never used it, but it does come with a vacuum
I recommend the scissors with the round ends very highly, they were initially bought to trim my dogs hair and are great because they do not have sharp ends to poke accidentally.
I filmed this with a Samsung F90 and uploaded with out any editing. The Samsung is very interesting camera and is one I will be doing a video on soon as it is very unusual in that it enables the video maker to film many short clips and keep them all on the same file so they can upload them as one file without having to edit and splice them together in an editor.
Unfortunately you can only pause the camera for 5 minutes before it makes a new file, but I think it may be a very handy camera for a youTuber that was trying to reduce the time spent in making and uploading video.
Thanks for watching.
