Best Hair Cutting Kits for a Complete Haircut - UK Reviews
Cut your hair at home the right way by having all the right cutting tools at your disposal
BY ENDA MCLARNON
When starting to cut hair at home, many people start out by buying a good set of hair clippers. There is nothing wrong with that of course. However they quickly realise, there is a little more to this, if you want to do it right.
Quickly they realise that you also need a good set of hairdressing scissors, and a cape to keep the hairs off the clothes. They may also need something to help make neat lines, at the back of the hair, and at the sideburns. Having a storage box for all the parts would also be useful.
There are also all of the hair clipper combs, neck brushes etc. That is where buying a full hair cutting kit might be a better option for some people. That is especially true for someone doing a lot of family haircuts.
Below we have done some reviews on the top 5 hair cutting kits currently available in the UK marketplace.
