Hair Trimmer Comb: Barber-ism Begins At Home
Back when I had hair (that grew in the right places), my mother had one of these Hair Trimmer Comb gimmicks. The plastic handle conceals a couple of alarming double-edged razors. You're meant to simply comb this through your hair (the instructions say that you should count the strokes on each side to keep hair even length). This gadget is designed to extend the time between haircuts by trimming just the tips of your hair with its comb -blade combo action.
So maybe I don't fully understand the nuances of this device, but how does it know what bit of your hair is okay to slice through? As I recall with some embarrassment, the thing just shaves a big trough in your hair. Yes, that could potentially delay a trip to the barber, but speed up your trip to the Army recruitment center. Fortunately after only a few tries we saw that the gadget was a bust. Despite lavishing 79 cents on it (marked down from a dollar!) it was okay to just throw it away.
It reminds me of when I finally made the decision to start shaving my head. I was thinning on top, and every hair style I tried made it look like I was vain and was trying to hide the inevitable. I knew that the time was right when I realized that haircuts cost twenty dollars, and clippers cost just $12. That day was the beginning of my adventure as a member of the pate patrol. Then again if we'd hung on to this cheap tetanus factory, perhaps I could have gone bald a lot sooner.
