Ensure the hair is dry. Hair clippers perform best with dry 7 7/8” (22mm) hair, making it easier to see how much hair is being cut. 7. Hold the hair clipper in the palm of one hand with your 8 1” (25mm) thumb resting firmly on the top of the hair clipper. This grip provides comfortable cutting control. Giving A Comfortable, Even Cut ■ Allow the clipper to cut through the hair without moving it too quickly. Moving the clipper too quickly may create a pulling sensation. As the clipper cuts the hair, the vacuum sucks the clippings through the inlet into the hair chamber. ■ Use short strokes when cutting, and initially use the longest trimming guide. You can always use a closer trimming guide later if you want a closer cut. How to Give a Haircut STEP 1 – Nape of the neck • Set the comb to 3mm or 6mm. • Hold the clipper with the blade teeth pointing upwards. Begin starting at the centre of the head at the base of the neck. • Slowly lift the clipper, working upwards and outwards through the hair, trimming just a little at a time. STEP 2 – Back of the head • With the comb set at 12mm or 18mm, cut the hair at the back of the head. STEP 3 – Side of the head • With the comb set at 3mm or 6mm, trim sideburns. Then change to the longer 9mm guide comb and continue to cut up to the top of the head. • To trim around the ears, remove the trimming guide and replace with either the left or right ear guide. The shorter guide teeth are designed to be toward the ear. Move the clipper from the front of the head to the back. This creates a tapered effect around the ear and back of the neck. STEP 4 – Top of the head • With the 18mm or 22mm guide comb attached, cut hair on top of the head against the direction in which the hair normally grows. Note: For longer desired lengths of more than 22mm, place finger over hairs and guide into the guide comb and blade to better guide the hair trimmings into the vacuum chamber. • Always work from the back of the head. STEP 5 – The finishing touches • The final trim can be made with the hair clipper or the included scissors. Make sure to check over the entire head for any uneven areas. For styled hair or giving quick trims, you may prefer using your hair clipper without the trimming guide. • Use the clipper without a guide comb for close trimming around the base and sides of the neck. • To produce a clean straight line at the sideburns, reverse the hair clipper. • Place the reversed clipper at right angles to the head, tips of the blades lightly touching the skin and then work downwards. Longer Styles • For optimum performance do not trim hair 18mm or longer with one pass of the clipper. • When cutting hair 18mm or longer use a finger on your free hand in between the comb and clipper to guide hair into the blade by applying slight pressure. As you move the clipper up to cut, your finger will help keep the longer hairs from slipping away before they can be cut. If the hair extends well past the hair collection chamber opening, place your finger on top of the chamber near the opening. Short Tapered Styles – “Flat Tops” and Short Cuts • Starting with the longest guide comb attached (25mm), cut from the back of the neck to the crown. Hold the guide comb flat against the head and slowly move the clipper through the hair. • Use the same procedure from the lower side to the upper side of the head. • Then cut the hair against the direction in which it grows and level with the sides. • To give a “flat top” look, the hair on top of the head must be cut over the top of a flat comb. • Use a closer guide comb to taper the hair down to the neckline as desired. Emptying Hair Chamber: 1. Turn off the unit. 2. Hold the unit from the back end of unit, cradling the bottom with one hand. 3. Push the chamber release button with your gripping hand thumb and with your other hand rotate and then lift the chamber off. 4. To empty contents grip the chamber securely in hand with opening facing down over desired collection container. Shake chamber up and down, but stopping rapidly on the down stroke. This may have to be repeated several times. 5. You may have to vigorously shake the chamber or scoop out some of the compacted hair clippings. 6. Be careful not to puncture the screens on the hair chamber while emptying the unit. 7. The mesh side of the vacuum chamber can be opened to aid in hair removal and cleaning of the mesh. The mesh can be brushed or rinsed under water to be cleaned; however it needs to be completely dry before it is reattached to the unit. 8. Once finished emptying, place the chamber back onto the unit by putting the scoop end in first and then gently rotating the mesh end back into place until it clicks. Cleaning and Maintenance Mesh Release Tab 1) Press to release. 2) Then, Grip/Push to swing mesh open. Mesh is hinged to swing open and closed.

Blades ■ It is recommended to oil the blades after every use. ■ Place 2 to 3 drops of lubricating oil on the moving blade and turn on the clipper. The oil should distribute on its own. Wipe off any excess oils. Battery Battery Removal When your rechargeable clipper reaches the end of its useful life, the batteries must be removed and recycled or disposed of properly in accordance with your local and state requirements. The following should be followed for battery removal: ■ Ensure device is unplugged from any electrical outlet and discharged of all power. ■ Remove blade for ease of disassembly and safety by following instructions for blade removal (see Blade Removal section). ■ Remove vacuum chamber by following instructions for emptying chamber. ■ Using a small screwdriver, remove 3 screws at the top of clipper where the vacuum chamber was. ■ Using a small screwdriver, remove 2 screws at the bottom of the unit near the back (plug end). ■ Pry the top housing, starting from the back (plug end).
