Discovering the Creaclip
While trying to come up with a solution to my quandary, I came across the Creaclip which you can see here on Amazon
. I see that since the product was launched they now have some cheaper rip off’s of the original product. I can’t vouch for the cheaper ones but the Creaclip itself is really good.
There are two individual clips, the smaller one is for cutting fringes (or bangs for my American friends) and some children’s styles and the larger one is for the main body of your hair. There is a YouTube channel
dedicated to the clip created by the creator of it who is a celebrity hairstylist. Watching some of the video tutorials we felt comfortable enough to get the clips and for Michael to cut my hair himself. I think he did a pretty good job! A few months later we used the clip again and this time I was a bit adventurous and actually cut the front of my hair into an Asymmetrical bob which I had several compliments on – but no photograph to share with you… Although I have been able to fit in a trip to the hairdressers this time and I needed the professional help because I wanted my hair thinning and some restyling we will certainly keep using the Creaclip at home to maintain the cut. So I still very much recommend it. If you have a simple style and just need to keep removing split ends etc you could probably save on all hairdresser costs. Of course, you would lose out on all the pampering that goes along with a trip to a salon though, but you could save a lot of money and travel. Only you know if this would be a benefit for you or not.
