During a recent interview on CBS Sunday Morning, George Clooney dished on one of his biggest beauty secrets—he's been cutting his own hair with a Flowbee device for a long time. "I've been cutting my own hair for 25 years," Clooney revealed in his sit down with Tracy Smith. "Years ago, I bought a thing called a Flowbee. It comes with a vacuum cleaner and clippers. I still have it."
For those who've never heard of a Flowbee before, Clooney isn't joking—it actually is an electrically powered vacuum cleaner attachment made for cutting hair. The devices were often sold on the home shopping network back in the 1980s.
Unsurprisingly, Clooney's revelation made major headlines. Shortly after his appearance on CBS Sunday Morning, Clooney visited Jimmy Kimmel Live! for another interview. Host Jimmy Kimmel asked the actor to prove he really uses the Flowbee by giving himself a haircut on live TV. Clooney rose to the challenge and gave himself a spur of the moment trim with a Flowbee.
"You turn the vacuum on. You turn the buzzer on. You go to town, like this on your hair," Clooney said as he demonstrated how to use a Flowbee. While Clooney made it look easy, Kimmel struggled to keep up with his own device. "You do it that fast?" Kimmel asked in shock. Clooney had the perfect response: "Can't hear ya, I'm Flowbeeing!"
If you're looking to get the George Clooney cut, Flowbee's website is still up and running. Maybe Flowbee will even be the hot item for the holidays this year?
