Ok, this was the first time for me to cut my own hair. Usually go to my regular stylist but wanted to save some cash. Before purchasing this product I read as much reviews on this product as I could. Most reviews were good so I decided to invest in the product. Below are the pros and cons that I came up with during my use of this product. This is my true opinion and experience of this product. Pros:
The look and feel of the remington shortcut was nice. Small and compact. Product has to be charged overnight but battery life was good during my initial use. Gives an even shortcut as described. Cons:
Ok, if you've never cut your own hair like I did before I would suggest to think it over really well and plan ahead on where you will cut your hair. I kind of knew that it would be messy so I decided to go to my parents house and use their backyard for my adventure. Best move ever! Cutting my hair was very very messy and I totally looked like a shaggy dog after my initial trim. Also, cutting your hair alone is not as easy as I thought. Even though this product says that you can't mess this up, you can if you don't look in a mirror. It did give me an even trim eventually with several passes on my head but you definitely need a mirror or have someone help you as you do end up with missed spots and short areas I call "landing strips". If you plan to do it in the bathroom or somewhere indoors, make sure you cover everything up as the clippings will get into everything. I'm not lying! The shortcut was good in some areas of my head but the sides of my head and around my ears were very difficult to cut with this product because of the arched design. Even though this unit has a built in trimmer it's not the best and prone to trimming disasters. So, I recommend having a good adjustable trimmer handy afterwards and someone's help! In fact I recommend it!! The clean up of the product was not a breeze and needed several passes in hotwater to wash all the clippings from the unit. Good thing is that you can wash the product in running water but it used up a lot of water during the process. Overall, the product did it's job as described and gave me an even shortcut but the hassle of the mess, clean up, holding a mirror in one hand, and the trimming afterwards made me appreciate my stylist even more. My stylist takes about 15 minutes tops to cut my hair but it took me a good hour to get a cut with this product. Yes, cutting your own hair with this product will save you money but for me it's not worth the all the hassles. I'm going back to my stylist!
