A quick update on the happenings in the hair and beauty industry.
Clooney cuts his own hair
We heard of many celebrities doing at-home haircuts during the lockdown, right? Now hear this. It’s not only the lockdown; George Clooney has been cutting his own hair even during normal times. The Oscar winning actor recently mentioned in an interview that he has been snipping his own hair for the last 25 years! While discussing his grooming routine in the interview, the Hollywood star admitted that he uses Flowbee, the vacuum cleaner attachment for at-home haircuts. “My hair is like straw and so it’s easy to cut. You can’t really make too many mistakes. So years ago, I bought a thing called a Flowbee. The thing with the vacuum cleaner and clippers, yeah. I still have it,” he admitted. He added that he became familiar with the device as a child and his haircuts take, literally, two minutes. Now that’s amazing, we think.
