How to Use Clippers (Jan, 1924)

Your Appearance is one of your greatest assets


Such men as lawyers, bankers, doctors, executives and successful business men, consider their personal appearance one of their greatest assets. This applies equally to yourself. Your chance of promotion may depend largely upon your appearance. Neat clothes, clean collar, trimmed hair and good taste today help considerably in the making of a business man. Perhaps the most important of these factors is your hair. What is more slovenly looking than when the hair grows down over the collar—and what is more easily remedied ? Keep it neat appearing between trips to the barber by trimming it at home. It’s simple and easily done with Brown & Sharpe Hair Clippers— used by barbers the world over.

The Clipper Your Barber Uses is the Clipper to Use at Home

Keep a Brown & Sharpe Hair Clipper at Home for use between trips to the barber—for trimming the children’s hair or sister’s ” bob,” and for use on vacations or when a barber is not right at hand.

    My mother had one of these. When the blades got dull and out of alignment, it would pull out your hair in clumps! I still shudder.

    I had one of those things recently, but I have no idea how old the one I had actually was.

    I have 2 pair of these!! My Dad told many horror stories of his haircuts and attributes his baldness to the ingenious design of this product. I would be very curious to find more information as well as the worth of these torturous items. Wow!

    Kathy: Ever hear of Google or even Google or maybe Google?

    Thanks Firebrand38. I haven’t ever heard of Google, but then again I am still using hair clippers from the early 1900’s. I will check into Google as soon as I put some more coal into my computer.

    Kathy: You’re welcome. In between shovels of coal click on the links I provided and all questions will be answered. I mean, it was a reasonable assumption on my part because I went to Google, typed in sharpe brown hair clipper and answered your questions.
