Not once in your life have you probably contemplated how George Clooney cuts his hair, but now, you'll never be able to stop thinking about it. Straight out of the 1980s comes the Flowbee haircutting system, aka Clooney's go-to method for cutting his own hair at home. For those who aren't familiar with this cutting-edge technology, it's a hair clipper vacuum combo, and yes, it was sold on infomercials.
Before you dismiss this information as just another quarantine discovery, we have news: Clooney has been using this device for the last 25 years. In an interview with CBS, Clooney disclosed that his DIY haircutting routine has been going strong for the last two-and-a-half decades, all thanks to the Flowbee. "I've been cutting my own hair for 25 years," he said, before going on about just how easy his hair is to cut. "It comes with a vacuum cleaner and the clippers? Yeah. I still have it. . . . Listen, man, it works!"
The Flowbee haircutting vacuum was invented in '86 out of creator Rick Hunts's garage in Texas and has supposedly been helping people cut their own hair ever since. You can get your own Flowbee online at Flowbee.com for $140 for the entire system, which includes the haircutting tool and a mini vac, or for $99, you can just pick up the haircutting attachment, which is compatible with many of your standard vacuum cleaners, as long as they have a hose attachment.
Clearly it works for Clooney, and if it works for Clooney, it works for us.
