The new DIY.

Thanks to local and national stay-at-home orders during the pandemic, many of us had to learn how to cut our own hair. The barbershops were closed or boarded up, and even if we thought we could get away without a cut, at the very least trim, at some point, we all began looking up how to cut our own hair. For some, this came naturally. For others (myself included), we were average at using a pair of scissors and clippers. And for some, patches of no hair, or uneven lengths from 2020 cuts still give us trauma.


You might have rejoiced when barbershops opened back up. After all, nothing really beats a professional service. But don’t you remember how convenient it was to cut your hair at any hour on any given day, without the need to schedule an appointment, wait in line, or make awkward small talk? Or what about the greatest pull towards an at-home haircut, the guarantee of not being charged?


Sure, there’s the initial payout to get all the supplies you need (comb, hand held mirror, clippers or razor, blades, and styling tools), but knowing these will last for months to come is a huge save. And now, there is a tool that will provide the most accurate cut for any level, all in the comforts of your own home. Enter: CutCam clippers.


Why CutCam?

Essentially, the clippers have a built-in camera that, through the app, will show you exactly where you are cutting—great news for those hard-to-reach places. The smart app will record how long it takes you to cut your hair, how long it has been since your last cut, and most importantly, will show you exactly where the blade is going, allowing you to make adjustments if you need to. Never before has a hair cutting system included a camera. And sure, you can hold a handheld camera to look back, but this is the most accurate and seamless way to cut your hair, beginners and advanced barbers alike.

CutCam is the most customizable hair clipper out there. When you purchase the product, you will get the clippers and an app with multiple videos of professional and well-known barbers who will keep you abreast to all the latest haircut trends and techniques. Plus, they offer up tutorials on exactly how to get the look. The CutCam is different in that it really shows you exactly what is going on.


Clippers aren’t the only tool you’ll need for a next level at-home cut. Listen to the professionals about what else should go in your barber kit arsenal. And in case you didn’t know, here’s what all the clipper number lengths at a barbershop mean.
