    This probably sounds weird, but I have been cutting my own hair and familys' hair for the past 25 years with a standard pair of scissors and one of those trimmers which is about 15 years old. But now the time has come for me to change the scissors and trimmer as I have sharpened the scissors to its limit and the trimmers have just stopped working.

    So could anybody recommend me where I could buy the professional equipment that haidressers buy from. Or do I need to just pop in boots and pick up one of those kits? if so which one??

    Cheers

    I bought a decent kit from boots about three years ago in the January sales, still going strong. Couldn't tell you how it compares to Pro gear though.

    There's an old thread on GC about guys who give themselves a "prison cut" if that's useful... :rotfl: I think there were several recommendations on clippers on it. Only remember it as I still pay for a No1 :eek:

    My daughter is hairdresser and gets her stuff from here:

    http://www.ellisons.co.uk/

    or just look for hairdressing wholesalers in the yellow pages :)

    You will choke when you see the price of the some of the hairdressing scissors, especially the Japanese ones - some are over £500 a pair!
