Conair Home Haircut Kit

Conair Home Haircut Kit
With salons and barbershops across the country mostly closed, it seems that long hair of the '70s may be coming back in style.

What a great time to review my Conair Home Haircut Kit. Conair is an easy to use clipper for all of your home grooming needs.

Most guys I know get their haircut on a regular basis like once every two weeks or once a month.

I'm one of those guys that always wait until my hair is so long that I can't stand it. I don't know why because the salon that cuts my hair is only two blocks from where I live.

I find, the older I get the less hair that I have. Although in my younger days I had sideburns that would have made Elvis jealous.

My hair grows faster on the sides than on top. So, for in-between hair appointments, I bought this Conair 10 piece haircutting system. I have had this for several years now and it still works like new.

This makes it so easy to trim the sides and around my ears to keep me looking neat and respectable until my next appointment.

Conair Home Haircut Kit Includes:

  • The Barber Clipper to Cut.
  • Four guide combs, 1/8", 1/4", 3/8", 1/2" for detailing.
  • Cleaning brush and oil to keep it clean.
  • Barber Comb
  • Blade Guard
  • Styling Clip, this is something that I never need.
Here are some tips and tricks if you're new to cutting your own hair or someone in the family. It's one thing to hack up your hair, but, if you hack up one the kid's hair you may be in big trouble.

Always start with the largest comb. Start cutting from the bottom of the side around the ears and work your way to the top. Don't cut the top of your hair yet. Once you get a little confidence you can move to the shorter combs.

For the top, use the comb to lift the hair. Cutover the top of the comb, starting from the front to the back to blend the hair to the sides.

The kit also includes a full set of instructions for cutting hair. If you're new to this, don't worry with a little bit of practice you'll be cutting hair like a pro just like me.

  1. A home hair kit would be a handy thing to have right now. Thanks for this helpful review of the kit by Conair, Sam.

    1. It sure is a handy little tool, Pat. Especially now with all of the salons and barber shops being closed.

  2. I'm guessing there are plenty of families out there right now that are working on figuring out the whole home barbering gig. This will be a great resource for them. I should buy this and offer up some free haircuts to the homeless individuals I keep a watch over (when it is safe to be inside that social distancing bubble). Thanks for sharing something so useful and practical. Appreciated!

    1. What great idea, I'm sure the people would appreciate a free haircut. I think they would be lining up. So wonderful that your're always thinking of helping other people. You are a saint!

  3. I started cutting my husbands hair for him (using a shaver like the one you have featured) a few years ago when his barber retired. The shavers with the attached combs allow anyone to cut hair IF the man likes that shorter overall haircut. I do use a smaller electric razor (a Peanut) around his ears and on the back of his neck. That took a little more practice to get right, but we have our routine now. As long as he doesn't talk when I trimming over his ears, we're good! If he talks, I could easily make "statement designs" over his ears like crop circles. I just wish there was an easier way to trim my hair. I always mess mine up when I take scissors in hand. I once trimmed my own bangs and looked like a rooster for a few weeks.

    1. I always cut my hair myself. Fran doesn't seem interested in helping me. Although she does tell me when I miss a spot, and then I have to go back and fix it. I start with short on the sides and then blend in the top. I'll have to look into a small one for around my ears. I'm with you, I have no luck using the scissors. You could have started a new trend with the rooster cut :)

  4. This has been a staple in our home for over 40 years. My husband hasn't gone to the barber since we were married. I have cut his hair ever since those "I do" days. These days he keeps it trimmed himself with me just as a second pair of eyes in case he really misses a spot. They are the handiest tool to have for everyone. My personal mantra for hair cutting goes something like this, " it will grow back!".

    1. I like, and agree with your personal mantra, Olivia. You are correct "it will grow back" If I don't think it looks good I just take the shortest comb and zip all off!

  5. What a great idea, especially now, when most salons and barber shops aren't able to open! Thanks also to you and Sylvestmermouse (in the comments) for the tips on getting a good result.

    1. Oh, I don't always get a good result Margaret. But, Just like Olivia said it will grow back. I just cut my hair hair this morning and I very happy with my new look.

  6. I think this is the make we have in the house? I'm not sure, but I believe it is. My hubby and the boys have been using it. Although, he shaves bald (always) so has to use this regularly - two of my four sons are growing longer hair (which I love!), and the other two are cutting their hair - interesting times!

    1. Interesting times for sure, Barbara. I guess bald is easy, If I mess my hair up, I just buzz it with the 1/8-inch comb all over. That makes it real easy.

  7. We used to have a hair cutting set that was similar about 50 years ago, but I never got the knack of cutting my husband's hair. I think I finally got rid of it when he could afford haircuts. Now that the barber shops are closed, I'm thinking I should try to make him respectable again, but not sure I'd be able to do the job any better now than I could then. I'll check it out anyway, in case my husband can't find an open barber before the church opens up again.
