If a hectic schedule is keeping you from booking an appointment with your hairstylist, you're practicing social distancing, or your favorite salon is closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, you might be tempted to nix some split ends on your own or give yourself a bang trim — though that could certainly spell disaster. (Cue flashback to high school when I gave my curly-headed friend first-time bangs and cut straight across like a total amateur. Still sorry, Kate!) Luckily, it's not as intimidating or difficult to DIY as you might think, thanks to a handy tool Amazon shoppers have discovered: the Bangmeng Hair Cutter Comb (Buy It, $8,

It has dual-functioning combs: one end combs through and sections hair while the other actually cuts your strands, using two different razors designed for either thin or thick hair. To use it, you simply lightly stroke the comb over the area where you wish to cut off the hair. (Yes, apparently it is that easy.)

The $8 price tag makes it incredibly affordable, and it also comes with five extra blades to swap in once the original razors become dull. Also nice: The razors have a safety shield, so you don't need to worry about nicking yourself. (

This hair cutter comb has received over 2,400 glowing reviews on Amazon, with shoppers praising it for being easy to use (the "learning curve is quick"), working equally well on fine, straight strands and thick, curly hair types, and that it effortlessly trims both long tresses and short pixie styles. Many customers revealed that they resorted to this tool during the pandemic to cut their partners' hair — and one user was "floored" by the end results, sharing "this is now my go-to tool since he's asked me to keep doing his hair from now on!" What's more, countless reviewers mentioned that this nifty gadget might have them breaking up with their salons for good, since it does such an effective job at a fraction of the cost of a professional service.

One reviewer wrote: "I have zero experience with cutting my hair and ALL KINDS of experience with not being able to get haircuts because I can't afford to pay $30 plus tip every two weeks! Honestly, unless you're changing your hairstyle you will never need to go to the salon again! You can just trim trim trim."

"Ok I just gotta say this thing saved me during covid lock down," shared another. "My bangs got sooo long and when this normally happens, it's time to get in to get my hair done. But there was no place for me to get into. So I watched a YouTube video on how to texturize my bangs and the girl uses a tool like this one. It worked! Not only was I able to trim my bangs but for the first time ever, I was able to make them look texturized and not like buster brown. The fact that it has two sides made it even better because the one side is varying lengths in between the teeth so it made it even more easy to obtain the right look. I love this thing! And it was actually fun to play around with. I almost got so carried away I could have just given myself a whole new look. A must-own for the in-between hair appointment times."

Whether you're trying to keep your hair from looking like a hot mess during quarantine, wanting to do a little maintenance between salon appointments, or on a budget and don't want to fork over the dough for a simple trim, Amazon shoppers say the Bangmeng Hair Cutter Comb should be in your beauty arsenal.
