THE CONAIR GUIDE
TO CUTTING HAIR AT HOME
Before you start:
1. Inspect your clipper. Make sure it’s free
of hair and dirt, properly oiled, and running
2. Place a towel or cape around the neck of
the person whose hair is being cut.
3. Seat the person so that his or her head is at
your eye level. This gives you greater visibility
4. First, comb hair until it’s tangle-free. Then
hold clipper in a comfortable grip. Now you’re
ready to cut.
Please note your [number] cut
haircut kit comes with easy-to-use
number-coded combs, so you can easily
remember your favorite comb once you
start to use the kit on a regular basis.
MEDIUM TO LONG CUT
To begin with, cut only a small amount of
hair until you become used to the length each
attachment leaves the hair. Try the longest
attachment on the clipper first. If you want a
shorter cut, you can then use shorter combs.

hair to 1/8".
• Medium-Short attachment comb (number 2)
cuts hair to 1/4".
• Medium-Long attachment comb (number 3)
cuts hair to 3/8".
• Long attachment comb (number 4) cuts
hair to 1/2".

upside down (see Fig. 1) and, holding it against
the skin at the length desired, move the clipper

For best results, do as the professionals do:
comb hair often, and check clipping results as
you comb. This way you avoid uneven sides,
bangs, neckline, etc.
SHORT CUTS TO PERFECT
FLAT TOPS, CREW CUTS, ETC.

crown, using the longest comb setting. Hold
the comb attachment flat against the head
and slowly move the clipper up through the
hair. Use the same technique for the sides,
cutting from the bottom to the upper side of
For the front to the crown, cut the hair against

CARE OF YOUR CLIPPERS
MAINTENANCE OF THE BLADE
Always apply oil to the blades before, during and
after use. This will ensure maximum cutting
performance. Hold clipper away from your body
in a downward position and apply oil on the front
and sides of the cutter blade. Wipe excess oil off
with a soft dry cloth.
hair clippers are carefully inspected to
insure that the blades are in perfect alignment.
You will need to realign the blades if they
should be knocked out of alignment. How can
you tell if the blades need realigning? Simply
match them up, point for point, to conform with
the drawing below.
To replace cutting comb and cutter after remov-
al for cleaning, replacement or because they
are out of alignment, slide the cutter back onto
the black plastic oscillating head. Next, you
must make sure that the cutter (small blade)
and the cutting comb (large blade) are properly
aligned. Line up the new or existing cutting
comb with the two screw holes. Place the
original screws, one in each hole, and lightly
tighten with a Phillips head screwdriver.
Then, match the two blades up, point to point,
conforming with the illustration below in Fig. 4.
*The top edge of the cutting comb should be
1/32" to 1/16" (.79 mm. to 1.59 mm.) higher
than the top edge of the cutter. This is important
so that the clipper does not cut too close or
come in contact with the skin.
*The extreme left tooth of the cutting comb
must cover or be to the extreme left of the first
small tooth of the cutter.
*Be sure that the extreme right big tooth of the
cutter touches the extreme right tooth of the
