Posted by Philshaunda Abdus-Salaam on

At The Cut Buddy, we specialize in providing top-notch men's grooming tools, and we're here to guide you through setting up your very own home barbershop.

If you are hoping to have what you need at home for those one off emergency situations, looking to eliminate those trips to the barbershop altogether or if you just need the ability to manage your grooming needs as you travel, we will give you the details you need to get the job done.

Creating an at-home barbershop is an empowering step towards self-reliance and style independence. With the right tools and a bit of know-how, you can achieve professional-looking haircuts and grooming without stepping out of your house. Let's look at the must have and the additional tools to get you set up for at home grooming.

Must-Have Tools for Your Home Barbershop

  1. Quality Hair Clippers: This the the cornerstone of any barbershop, professional hair clippers come with a variety of guard sizes for different hair lengths and styles. They're essential for everything from buzz cuts to detailed hair sculpting.
  1. Reliable Trimmers: For finer work like edging, shaping beards, or cleaning up hairlines, a good trimmer is a necessity. It's all about precision and control.
  1. Barber Scissors: High-quality scissors are crucial for trimming overgrown hair and adding texture. They’re ideal for those looking for more than a basic clipper cut.
  1. Comb and Brush Set: A good set of combs and brushes are indispensable for styling, detangling, and ensuring even cuts. They also help in evenly distributing natural oils through your hair.
  1. Maintenance Kit: This should include clipper oil, brush for cleaning blades, and disinfectant spray to keep your tools in top condition.
  1. Bald head shaver: We didn’t forget about our bald head friends.  None of the stuff above may be applicable if you are simply looking for a tool to give you that classic, clean bald cut feeling  
  1. Mirror: A large, well-placed mirror (or even a three-way mirror setup) is critical for seeing all angles while cutting your hair.

Additional Tools for Enhanced Grooming

  1. Barber Cape and Neck Duster: Keep your space clean with a barber cape, and use a neck duster for comfort and a professional touch.
  1. Razor: For those who prefer the old school way to a clean shave or need to maintain edges and sideburns, a high-quality razor is an excellent addition. Don't forget to grab something to keep those ingrown hairs and irritations at bay. 
  1. Hair Styling Products: Stock up on hair styling products like pomades, gels, and waxes to add the finishing touches to your hairstyle.
  1. Beard Care Products: If you have a beard, consider beard oils, balms, and conditioners to keep it healthy, soft, and manageable.
  1. Blow Dryer: A good blow dryer can make a significant difference in your styling routine, you can use this to straighten out your beard or for adding volume to your hair if you have a longer style.
  1. Hot Towel Warmer: For an extra touch of luxury and comfort, a hot towel warmer is perfect for pre or post-shave treatments.

Building your at-home barbershop is an exciting journey into grooming and self-care. With these essential and additional tools, you’ll not only look your best but also feel the pride of mastering your personal grooming. Remember, investing in quality tools like those offered at The Cut Buddy pays off in the long run, as they provide better results and a more enjoyable grooming experience. 

Happy grooming!
