Meet the Air Cut
In 2008, Norm Yerke and his engineering team began working on designing a handheld, easy to use, hair cutter that could be utilized for home haircuts. Thus, the AirCut was born, and the AirCut haircutting site was launched. The AirCut is now sold globally online by nearly 100 top affiliates. The AirCut has been praised for its ease of use, cost savings, and overall ingenuity.
Each AirCut system includes:
- AirCut Haircutting Device
- Set of 8 Straight Stylers from 4″ to 1/2″
- 1/2″ Tapered Styler
- Cleaning Brush
- Lubrication Oil
- AC Transformer
Our Air Cut Experience
With a boy in the house, hair cuts are a frequent ritual for us. Every six weeks or so, our son is in desperate need of a trim. While we typically cut his hair at home with clippers to save money, occasionally a hair stylist is needed to take of the mess I leave behind. As you can imagine, that gets pretty expensive, time consuming and worst of all, MESSY.
When we were asked to try out the AirCut system I was feeling a mix of excitement and skeptism. But in the end, the worst that could happen is we would end up at the hair salon paying for a hair cut that he needed anyways.
One of the really great things about the AirCut system is how versatile it is. With 9 stylers included in the kit, you can use this for a girl, boy, dad, whoever needs a trim and doesn’t want hair any longer than 4 inches.
The instructions were fairly simple to follow. Oil, place the filter, snap on a styler and start cutting. With the 1/2 inch styler in place we used up and down motions across our son’s shaggy hair. At first, I thought I must have been doing something wrong because I just didn’t see any hair missing. It wasn’t until I opened the storage compartment on the AirCut that I found a pile of freshly cut hair.
Thirty minutes later, our son had a fresher and trimmer look. I can say, getting the hang of the up and down bobbing technique isn’t the easiest and requires a bit of practice and patience. If you’re looking to save time, this may not be the best option. If you’re looking to save money, you’ve found the right tool.
While it’s not quite as short as I prefer his hair to be, the edges are even, there was no mess of hair clippings left behind and I never ran the risk of clipping him with the blades which has been known to happen with the hair clippers.
Room for Improvement
At the price of nearly $100, I’d really like to see a sturdy travel and storage case included rather than a thin plastic packaging inside a cardboard box.
The AirCut system is available for purchase online at www.aircut.com priced at $99.95 or as 5 payment installments of $19.95 plus free shipping from now until Easter 2010.
