Use a Flowbee to Cut Your Own Hair

I purchased a Flowbee in May of 1994. I have been using it to cut my own hair since then. Still using the same one I might add. I have also been using it to cut my two sons hair. The hose slides on to a vacuum cleaner and as it sucks your hair into the unit the blades cut your hair at a length determined by spacers added to the unit. According to the manual, it can cut hair up to 6 inches long. I have not been back to the barber since then. I would guess conservatively that I have saved at least 1500.00 over the past 15 years and it only cost 49.00 for the unit. I think they can still be purchased at flowbee.com. Sam
