Caress / Hair Clipper


Haircut is every child’s nightmare. A haircut at the barber’s usually means high chair, plastic capes, shiny scissors and buzzing clipper etc.
Thus, we design a brand new way to cut hair. The user can simply wear the clipper like wearing a glove, and cutting hair gently like mother’s caress over child’s head.
To reduce discomfort, the bottom of the hair clipper is made of silicon gel. Every possible mechanical components are hidden inside, thus keeping the pebble-like shape.
This can be adapted both at home and at the barber’s.
