Simplified my life.
It was so great not having to clean up the floor after cutting my husbands hair! I down graded it a star because it was a little tricky getting the cape off head without spilling the cuttings. Otherwise, still pleased with the product. Most excellent price too.

I would not buy it again
The first one I got I opened it and it ripped so they sent me another one and soon as you took it I took it off my husband's head hair always all on the floor was waste my money once you unfold it you can't get it fully back up or else it rips. It's bad when you have rate something when you don't want to

I have 4 boys, this is a must for doing clipper cuts at home
I purchased one for myself and one for my sister. We both have found this very helpful with keeping the floor clean while cutting. Being a hairstylist myself, I really do not like cutting hair at home because of the mess it makes. Having a family with four boys it is not always convenient to bring them into the salon. This has been a great fix. Clean up is a breeze.

Doesn't stay up like picture. still caught the hair.
It works. The upside down umbrella has no real support. But, caught the hair, and easy to dump out. Didn't cost a ton of money.

We love our purchase!We're so glad that we bought it.

Wish I had bought this sooner.
I cut my husbands hair. Especially in the summer months. This makes it easier to keep all the hair off him.

Hair
So much nicer than having to sweep up lots of hair that goes everywhere. Very good use.
Feb 26, 2016
Helpful.
I have my hair done at home. It helps with cleanup. I wish that it opened all the way to the edge of the umbrella. It would be easier to get on and off.
Feb 24, 2016
worked as good as we had hoped.
Works great for catching hair while cutting.
Feb 20, 2016
Catches the clippings
The hair umbrella works great. I clip my husband's hair and catch all clippings. It it easy to use. Works great.

Hair collecting
ok to collect hai from cutting
Jan 19, 2016
Horrible
Not at all like picture. Wire breaks in half when trying to fold. Hangers place wrong won't even collect the hair. Too tight in shoulders. Who did you try it on? The chinese? Very poor quality would expect something like this from the dollar store.
Jan 06, 2016
VERY CHEAP MATERIAL
I OPENED UP PACKAGE AND MATERIAL (PLASTIC) WAS SO CHEAP, FELT LIKE IFI PULLED AT IT WOULD RIP.
Dec 02, 2015

Nov 10, 2015

Folds up neat for storage.

Cutting umbrella
It was easy and helpful from keeping hair off the floor.
Sep 11, 2015
don't judge a book by its cover
It doesn't hold up as good as it looks in the picture. It is flimpsy and I had to be careful to make sure the hair I cut actually fell in the right place. The purpose is to keep the hair off the floor.
Aug 15, 2015
not at all as pictures
people this does not sit like the picture at all. I had to pin up the two straps to make a catch the hair lip around the umberella. I will keep it cause it does do what I need it to do, but don't be fooled by the picture, cause its not as pictured

hair cutting umbrella
This sure keeps the hair from flying all over everything including the floor. I always use this umbrella when I cut my husbands hair. Only con would be that it could be a little wider at the shoulders. But, it still works great.
Jul 08, 2015
Works Good
No Instructions so first we had it upside down. Didn't look right so we changed it back AFTER she had colored my hair. Was easier to clean with my packet clean up from myy hair color kit. Does not sit like that on me. I guess I had bigger shoulders and chest. Did catch some. Would be great for childrens haircuts..No problem with service. Just believe this should be for children and heavier material and bigger for adults.
Apr 29, 2015
not as pictured
The straps are too long. The rim cannot be pulled up to catch the trimmed hair. By temporarily taping the straps to shorten them we were able to use the device.
Apr 19, 2015
Didn't like it at all
This had so much static electricity in it that it was all over the place. It's too bulky, too and impossible to get off without dumping the hair all over the place that it's supposed to prevent. I thought it was a great idea but, will be in our next garage sale.

Hair Cutting Unbrella
It does not create an umbsrella to catch the cut hair. The neckline is quite small and has to be put over the head and it might rip in trying to do that. I would rather return it than attempt to use it. Have not used it and will not use it.
Feb 19, 2015
Great product.
The hair cutting umbrella has a great design and it does collect all the hair easily. To store after use you learn how to fold it, but it is not difficult, just tricky the first time. Well designed product.
Jan 20, 2015
Works pretty much as advertised
Catches hair as advertised after CAREFUL positioning of straps. Due lightweight material, it is difficult to remove over head without spilling some clippings. Fairly comfortable around neck. It works quite well if care is taken when removing the umbrella.
Jan 08, 2015
Not like picture
It's not sewed like the picture and falls down. I had to see it to make it stay up . It's missin a string
Jan 03, 2015
It is not what I expected.
It did not sit on the shoulders right. It was complicated.
Dec 20, 2014
good for cutting hair
Perfect for small places
Nov 25, 2014
Not for noneck people
Best use is to cut hair indoors, good idea, but not for all people, without major some adjustment.
Nov 15, 2014
Haven't used it yet.
Haven't used this product yet, but I don't think it is going to set right on shoulders. Will give it a try.
Nov 12, 2014
Clean up saver
Saves from having to sweep up hair.
Oct 30, 2014
No more dreaded hair on the floor.
Prior to purchasing this product I read both positive and negative reviews so I was forewarned. I am definitely on the positive side. The worst thing about haircutting is the cleanup. This makes the process enjoyable. There is hardly any cleanup, only if one doesn't pay attention to where they are aiming the cut hair. I love this umbrella. It must be IRONED prior to use. The edges don't turn up if the material is wrinkled from the packaging/mailing process. The material doesn't melt under an iron. Thank you so much for this clever product.
Aug 02, 2014
Great Product
Does exactly what it says it will. Easy to use, attach and fold and put away.
Apr 28, 2014
Cleaner bathroom
Collects hair during haircut quite well. Easier to use and clean up than a beach towel. I haven't found the trick to folding it up.
Apr 22, 2014
Does it's Job
Makes cleanup after haircut simpler. Does it's job as described. Use it on grandson every 2-3 weeks. He likes his hair short. Thanks.
Apr 01, 2014
Not as described
The pocket is not as deep as shown in picture. Theres barely any pocket at all. If you did have hair on it, by the time you take it off , all the hair will be in the floor, so you have to go outside to take it off. Great idea but poor design.
Mar 14, 2014
Diappointed
Once it popped open, it will never close and fold back the way it was received in the package. It is very thin, and does not fit anything like the picture in the catalogue. I am sorry I bothered buying it.
Feb 22, 2014
Okay product
I have had another similar product that I have used for years but is now torn and thought this would be comparable. It is okay, but does not fold down as shown and is difficult to fold up as well. I was a little disappointed that it was not more like the old one I was using.
Jan 03, 2014
You cant fold it up
Once it is popped out of the package, its impossible to close back. Bulky and takes up room. I thought it would be a space saver but its a space taker!!
Dec 24, 2013
Disappointed!
I wish they made this sturdier, it actually came ripped at the seams. Nylon is VERY thin! I'm surprised the stitching didn't completely rip thru! Too bad.
Dec 14, 2013
good but impossible to close!
I'm a licensed cosmetologist and the purpose of my use of this product was for my elderly parent and also grandchildren, along with my husband at home. It would have helped to have directions with it, ESPECIALLY how to close it ! That is impossible. I halfway close it and have to quickly place something on top of it so it doesn't open up again !
Dec 12, 2013
AWKWARD
First, no instructions to explain how to leverage the cup. Then my haircutter explained that it was too bulky and asked to take it off. Now it is just trash.
Dec 06, 2013
It helps
We love the product have had it for years. Need to get a new one they are not made real durable, but works during the winter when we cut hair inside. Needs to be bigger around the neck made more for a child.
Nov 18, 2013
Works great
My husband is a fairly large man, and we use this all the time. Before this we used a long vinyl cape which was hot and let the hair fall on the floor. This IS lightweight; that is one reason we like it. Yes, you have to be careful taking it off so the hair doesn't fall out, but it is not difficult and you can easily dump the hair in the trash can. It does not easily fold up, but I just leave it open.
Oct 30, 2013
Worked as expected
I liked it. My husband always cuts our boys hair and leaves a huge mess every time. The hair cutting umbrella worked great for keeping hair off the floor. The boys felt silly wearing it but it did its job.
Sep 19, 2013
GREAT PRODUCT
GREAT CONCEPT & KEEPS FLOOR CLEAN WHILE USING
Sep 17, 2013
Works ok.
Not exactly as pictured but keeps the hair off of the floor. My husband walked outside and then we took the "umbrella" off. The cost was minimum so the product is worth what I paid.
Sep 10, 2013
not as expected
Pocket is shallow. Hair sticks to velcro rendering useless after a while.
Aug 24, 2013
Didn't like it
This might work great on children, but not on a man. When we took it off my husband, the hair fell out.....on him and on the floor.
Aug 07, 2013
BETTER THAN NOTHING
Edging broke the first time used. Very difficult to refold. Looks nothing like the advertisement.
Aug 05, 2013
Great Product
It was interesting trying to get it to sit on my husband's shoulders, but we managed. What is best about it is that NO hair hit the floor. Hubby helped get it over his head and carried it to the trash can and dumped the hair, and that was that.
Jun 24, 2013
Too flimsy, would not recommend
Item might work on small build people, but a large framed person I work not recommend this item. It will not set on your shoulders as shown.
Apr 24, 2013
hair cutting umbrella
Eliminates hair mess on floors; definitely good product.
Mar 26, 2013
Not as Advertised
I frequently cut my husband's hair as well as my grandsons' and hoped that this product would help to keep the hair off both them and the floor. I could not make the lip of the hair umbrella stay up as shown in the photo, even using clips. The material was like that of a windbreaker and the metal band around the edge was so thin it broke the first time I used it. I would rather pay a bit more for a more durable product since I could really use something like this.
Mar 01, 2013
Too flimsy
Not worth the money, Thin wire suport broke when unfolding. Way too cheap nor held cut hair well
Feb 28, 2013
love it
if you use correctly,it looks exactly like in the photo. I love that it is not too rigid as I had one before that was a hard plastic and it was so hard to store. the neckline is velcro so it is adjustable. Really a good product that I could not find anywhere else. I tried all beauty supply stores and all of their products were capes that did not hold the hair off of the floor.
Feb 01, 2013
Did not work well
Tried to use it once, didn't work.
Nov 26, 2012
Too flimsy, would not recommend
Did not like it.

Hair Cutting Umbrella
Perfect for cutting hair. No clean up
Jul 22, 2012
Works great
I've had this for a number of years. It works great. I use a binder clip to keep neck part close to my husband's neck. Fits great over his shoulders. Very easy to gather all the cut hair into one area, grab it and throw away. Then I just shake any leftover hair into the garbage, and quickly twist the wire into a small circle and put away the umbrella until the next time.
Jun 01, 2012
Does not work as in picture
Construction too flimsy & interferred w/cuttings. Does not fall around individual comfortably, neck sizing too tight.
May 26, 2012
Don't believe everything you see/read
A waste of money, tried it twice (benefit of doubt), so flimsy. I used to cut my husband's hair, this got in the way, sides didn't hold up, still got hair all over. Hubby cuts his own hair now.
Mar 21, 2012
Head opening too small
I could barely put it over my husbands head. The velcro did not close around his neck. The umbrella did not cover the full shoulder.
Mar 10, 2012
Good quality for the price!
I cut my husbands hair once a month and was looking for something to make clean-up a lot easier. This product is perfect for our needs! 1) It keeps hair from getting all over him. 2) It keeps hair from getting all over our bath/laundry room! The material does seem a bit flimsy, so I am not sure how long it will last. But we didn't pay much for it, so I will be happy if it lasts 5 years. The hair-cutting umbrella arrived in a small box and for the life of me I cannot get it to collapse to fit into that small of a space. I just store it in the space between the dryer and the wall, and that works. Overall, good product for the price.

Feb 27, 2012
Not worth it!
Love Harriet Carter, but this item wasn't worth the money to ship it. Very flimsy material, small head opening and the edges do not "flip up" as shown in the picture. No way would that catch falling hair! I am shipping it back :(
Feb 20, 2012
Easy to use easier clean-up
The hair cutting umbrella worked about as well as I expected. It did catch the hair as it was cut. I thought the velcro fastener could have been designed to tighten a little more than it did. Over all I am glad that I bought it.
Jan 22, 2012
I'll be the judge!
The hair-cutting umbrella is quick to unfold, very easy to use, and convenient. My husband loves how the hair-cutting umbrella contains the hair trimmings, and when I'm finished, he's good to go!
Jan 17, 2012
Like the idea but disappointed with it.
It worked well. I was pleased with how it caught (most) of the hair. HOWEVER: The diameter could be just a little bit bigger. It was a bit hard to slide off my husbands neck. The material is very flimsy, NOT at all durable like the picture seems to show. The wire frame broke the first time I tried to fold it. And folding it?! I have yet to figure out how!
Jan 12, 2012
Dont judge a book by its cover
very helpful when cutting children hair,no mess to clean up when they will not sit still.
Dec 07, 2011
So-So
This did work for cutting my husband's hair with some tweaking. The material is flimsy. The umbrella does not stand up as shown. I had to pin up the side straps to make it stand up. It needs to be larger. Even pinned up, the umbrella isn't as deep as shown. Getting it off his head after the cut was a little difficult but most of the hair stayed in the umbrella. Will continue to use it for as long as it will last.
Dec 01, 2011
Works Well
I use it when I cut hair.
Oct 17, 2011
love this product. easy clean up!!!
this is a great product. my husband cuts my hair and this product provides easy clean ups.
Sep 01, 2011
I would recomment ths to others
It is a great idea for hair cutting. The only difficult part is twisting it into a smaller circle to store. I am sure I will get the hand of it the more I use it.
Aug 25, 2011
this item is great
This item is easy to use and cleaning up was a breeze.
Jul 29, 2011
Hair Cutting Umbrella
The hair cutting umbrella worked beautifully. I don't think one piece of hair hit the floor during the whole process. I do think that the hole that you slip your head into should be a little bit bigger, I could just barely connect the velcro. Not a lot bigger though.
Jul 07, 2011
Nice idea,poor quality!
This product does work but is made cheaply.Dissappointed!
Jun 28, 2011
So far works great
No more messes when my boys cut their hair.
May 24, 2011
Great, 2nd one purchased
Product worked great until weld joint on expansion rim broke.
May 22, 2011
GREAT DEVICE FOR SOMEONE AT HOME
GREAT PRODUCT
May 06, 2011
not as good as it looks
This product would work great if it actually stood up like it does in the picture. It does a good job collecting some of the hair but it doesnt hold up. Its not worth the price.
Apr 28, 2011
works great
My husband used this to cut his fathers and brothers hair, Both have large heads and this umbrella went right over their heads with no problem. It looks funny but it really works.
Apr 19, 2011
This is great. Would buy another
No more mess all over the floor. When your through just walk to trash can.
Apr 09, 2011
Too big for kids
I bought this for cutting my 12 year old son's hair, but this won't adjust down to fit around his neck snuggly, so the hair just falls all round his neck & clothing. I'm disappointed. It would have been easy for the manufacturer to put some extra velcro on it for a better fit on all sizes. I didn't think my 12 year old was THAT small.
Mar 23, 2011
"Hair Everywhere"
This product has to come over your head. The opening for your head is not large enough. The major problem is disposing of the hair once it's in the hoop and you try to get it over your head to empty. Hair everywhere.
Mar 21, 2011
nice product
very easy and simple to use the product.
Mar 18, 2011
Easy to use
This product has been very helpful with my hair cutting at home. Saves on clean-up time and sweeping/vacumming.
Mar 09, 2011
it does what it says it would
I cut my husbands hair without worry of a mess
Nov 21, 2010
Great for Cutting hair!
I use this every time I cut my husbands hair. Keeps the hair from falling in the floor and makes it easy to dispose of. He has wide shoulders and I just pinned the two straps up a little higher to make it fit him better.
Nov 13, 2010
Good product
We have used this product for many years and have worn the one we have out. The spot that the wire is welded together broke on it so I ordered a replacement. Good product
Aug 16, 2010
A cut above the rest...
Only suggestion I would have to improve this product would be to make it in different sizes to fit all sizes of people's necks and shoulders better.
