6th May 2020

With a few weeks into the stay-at-home order in place, by now, your hair will start to look shaggy, unkempt, and a bit life-less. And with the slim chance of you being able to access your hairstylist, you will have to resort to cutting hair at home.

Drastic times require drastic hair-measures.

If this is your first experience with cutting hair at home clippers, you can never go wrong with Andis basic starter machine. In fact, it is a famous clipper for first-time buyers.
