A little background first. I’m a 48 year old man who sports a conservative haircut. I have always disliked going to the barber. I don’t like making small talk. I also have rarely liked the results of my cut. Typically, the cut isn’t how I prefer, and it takes a week or two for my hair to grow in to the point where I deem it acceptable. When I have important events coming up, I try to time my haircuts a couple weeks ahead of time so my hair is how I like it at the time of the event.
So, this weekend I couldn’t get to the barber to get my hair cut.
Admittedly, I had waited too long, and my girlfriend was commenting on how long my hair was. On Sunday morning I ordered the Flowbee because I wanted to give it a try and knew I wouldn’t get to the barber until the following weekend. It amazingly arrived late that day (yes, same day. Thanks Amazon).
I unboxed it that evening, and figured I’d give it a try…conservatively. I started with the longest attachments, figuring if I screwed it up, I could have the barber fix it up. With the first try I didn’t cut anything. I shortened the attachment, and started it started to cut.
Remaining conservative, I swapped out attachments and cut until I got to the point where my hair would typically be two weeks post typical hair cut (the point where I was usually satisfied with my hair cut). When I was done, I was pleasantly surprised with the results. My hair was exactly how I liked it.
I have to admit, I always thought the Flowbee was a joke. I thought it was one of those infomercial items on the level of the Chia Pet. The reality: the best haircut I’ve had in years. I’m totally happy with the purchase, and believe I will never have to step foot in a barber shop again.
Very good product, easy to use, and cuts hair very evenly.
