The A-List Actor & Former Most Handsome Man Alive Takes a DIY Approach to Style

Ever since COVID-19 hit, a whole lot of people have been deprived of their regular visits to barbers and hair salons, but for one man, that hasn’t been a problem. It turns out George Clooney has been cutting his own hair for over 25 years, and if that isn’t shocking enough, he revealed he’s been using a Flowbee – a $99 hair-styling device – to do it.

The truth came out during an interview with CBS Sunday Morning: "I’ve been cutting my own hair for 25 years. My hair is really, like, straw, so it’s easy to cut. You can’t really make too many mistakes. So, years ago, I bought a Flowbee, which [came out] when I was a kid. It comes with the vacuum cleaner and the clippers. I still have it. My haircuts take, literally, two minutes."

The Internet, of course, reacted with laughter to the news that one of the wealthiest and most stylish men in the world doesn’t, you know, visit stylists. The promotional Twitter account for his latest movie, The Midnight Sky, issued this statement:

Flowbee must be loving the free publicity, especially since traffic to their website increased so rapidly that it temporarily crashed their servers.

Of course, those hair-cutting skills have also come in handy, as he’s taken responsibility for cutting his young children’s hair during the quarantine, in addition to taking on all the other household chores: "[I’m] vacuuming and doing the laundry and doing the dishes every day. I feel like my mother in 1964. You know, I understand why she burned her bra."

You, too, can cut your own hair, with or without a Flowbee, but we don’t recommend giving up on barbers and hairstylists in the long term. They’re professionals, after all, and they can help find the perfect style for your face and skull shape, or push you out of your comfort zone with an entirely new look.
