The Andis Easy Cut Clipper Kit is extremely powerful, yet compact for professional results at home.
Hairstyles and cuts that can easily be re-created at home include: A minor trim, or triming bangs or the back of the neck between salon visits. Easy-to-care for children's hairstyles. Styles such as a buzz cut or cropped hair that needs only clippers.
For a great-looking cut, be sure to: Wash hair before cutting. Wrap a towel or cloth around the neck to collect loose clippings and prevent squirming or itching. Provide a way for children to sit still during a home cut (watching TV etc). Cut hair when damp to keep strands together and under control. Brush hair carefully and comb frequently during cutting to keep strands together and even. Step back frequently to survey length and cut from a distance for a better perspective. Start with small trims first to gain experience.
Cuts best left to a professional stylist incude: Elaborate styles, particularly for a special occasion such as prom, homecoming or a party. Layered styles. Extreme changes, such as going from long hair to a short shag style. Replicas of celebrity styles. All of these cuts require expertise to cut correctly, and once mistakes are made, it may be impossible to correct them without drastic action such as a shaved head.
