How do I use The Cut Buddy?

We have a variety of helpful tutorial videos that will show you how easy it is to use The Cut Buddy available on our "How To Use" page and on YouTube. You will find numerous helpful videos that can help with using our product to trim a beard or haircut with ease!


What are the best cutting devices or clippers to use with The Cut Buddy?

The Cut Buddy is designed to work with any good pair of beard or hair cutting equipment.  It works great with all brands of hair clippers and with both straight and disposable razors (along with a good shaving cream).

We personally love Andis products; the Andis Outliner and Slim Pro are the best you can get! If you want to get fancy, zero gap the blades.

If you are looking for a good shaving gel, check out EZ Blades.

If you need a great mirror, get yourself a Self Cut System!  These are the best mirrors for seeing all angles of your head! You can purchase the Self Cut System here.


How is The Cut Buddy different or better than any other beard or haircut shaping tools?

What a great question!  And from such a good-looking person, no less! But seriously… We’re glad you asked!  

The Cut Buddy is the ONLY patented multi-curve beard and haircut template on the market! 

Our curves were EXPERTLY-DESIGNED by a NASA & Air Force-consulting engineer to work on ANY head size or hairline shape! 

There’s a reason it became a #1 Best-Seller on Amazon within 4 months of release and we have 80,000+ satisfied customers who will tell you the same! When it comes to grooming, you really get what you pay for. 

If you get an alternative product for cheap, you’re going to get a cheap product.

How long should I use the product before replacing it with a new one?

Great question! 

While there is no “magic number” of uses, we generally recommend  that you replace The Cut Buddy product every year for maximum effectiveness and to keep your beard and haircut looking sharp with ease.

The Cut Buddy is built to last but – like any other beauty product -- after repeated use the plastic may begin to show wear-and-tear and be less effective as a guide. The Speed Tracer Pencil generally lasts for about 15 uses.

Please be sure to wash The Cut Buddy with soap and water after every use. We also recommend you have a great after shaving or facial wash.

How did you get onto Shark Tank?

It was very difficult, only a select few companies are lucky enough to get on the show.

If you’re interested in being on Shark Tank, we recommend you visit ABC.com or the official Shark Tank website!  Good luck!


Does this tool replace my barber?

Hell no!  

The Cut Buddy is a guide strictly for shaping your beard or haircut.  A barber or stylist is a professional who is capable of doing SO MUCH MORE than that!  We still go to barbers and stylists whenever we need a full haircut!

Consider The Cut Buddy an “in-between barber/stylist visit” tool.  If you’re good enough to do your entire haircut by yourself, kudos to you!


What kind of hair does The Cut Buddy work with?

The Cut Buddy works for anyone with a hairline that needs shaping, beard or haircut!  We have customers from 120 different countries and of all races!

The EXPERTLY-DESIGNED curves are designed to work with ANY head size or hairline shape!  Coarse hair or fine hair, it all works with The Cut Buddy! If you want to look great and you have a hairline (unlike our now balding inventor…) then The Cut Buddy is FOR YOU!


How many discount codes can I use?

Great question! 

You may only use one discount code per order.  You may not compound or add coupon codes together. We’re a small business trying to pay our bills, after all!


How can I clean/sanitize The Cut Buddy?

Great question!  Soap and warm water works best. You may also use rubbing alcohol or any cleaning solution that is safe and does not irritate skin.


What are the best clippers to use with The Cut Buddy?

The Cut Buddy is designed to work with ANY BRAND of clipper or hair-cutting tool or razor.  Personally, we love Andis products and trust them the most.

Our favorites:

  • Andis Slim Line Pro
  • Andis Outliners

The best devices are the ones that cut down right to the skin. A regular hair clipper will not do the job, you need an actual shaver or zero gapped trimmer.


My product is broken, can I get a replacement?

That depends… How did it break?

We only replace The Cut Buddy if it arrives broken, you will need to send us a photo within 24 hours of receiving the product to info@thecutbuddy.com.

If it arrives broken, we are happy to replace it!  See our return policy here.
