Introducing the Zylist

The Zylist is the first trimmer designed for longer hairstyles (chin-length and longer). Salon haircuts can be hard to fit into a busy schedule, and they can be expensive. The Zylist offers you the convenience to keep your bangs or longer style looking beautiful whenever, wherever you have time. Use it to freshen you ends between salon haircuts, trim your bangs, cut simple hairstyles at home, or create layered styles.


How It Works

Easy Steps  Place a segment of hair into the Zylist, comb down to the desired length, and squeeze to cut. The Zylist cuts in a perfectly straight line. The clear paddle enables you to see the hair you've just cut so you can align one cut with the next, for perfectly even ends. 






What Makes the Zylist Better than Scissors?

If you’re a hair stylist, cutting hair with scissors is easy. But if you're a novice, taking scissors to your hair and ending up with a great haircut might seem like an impossible feat. Hairstylists use a comb, their fingers and scissors to comb out, secure and cut hair in a straight line. We observed professional technique and designed the Zylist to simulate these comb, secure, and cut movements all within the tool, so it's easy to achieve perfectly even ends. And you don't have to worry about cutting yourself - the Zylist blades are safely between the paddles, away from your fingers.

Creating Layers - Haircutting Basics

Most haircuts fall into one of four categories: blunt, graduated, layered, and long layered. Blunt haircuts have no layers, but the other three styles have some degree of layering, achieved by combing the hair out to a designated angle before cutting. The Zylist makes these styles easier to do at home than they would be with scissors.
