PREPPING YOUR
NEW TOOL
CHARGING
The Cut & Detail clipper is so easy to use. But before you start using your new
tool, you must take the time to charge it overnight for 16 hours before its first
use. Your new tool comes with a small amount of charge, but the initial charge
will ensure your new tool will have optimum power performance to give you
smooth fast cutting, every time.
-- Before using for the first time, fully charge your new tool continuously for
16 hours.
-- Maximum battery capacity will only be reached after 3 charging &
discharging cycles.
-- Ensure your new tool is switched off.
-- Insert the small plug on the charging adaptor into the socket on the bottom
of your new tool.
-- Plug the charging adaptor into a suitable mains power socket and switch on.
-- The red charging LED indicator light on your new tool will remain on when
correctly connected to the mains power.
-- A full charge will supply 60 minutes cordless runtime.
-- To maintain optimum capacity of the rechargeable battery, it is highly
recommended to fully discharge & then recharge your tool for 16 hours every
6 months.

THE CUT & DETAIL / TOOL TIPS
OILING THE BLADES
To get the sharpest, most precise cut, it is highly recommended to oil the blades
before each use.
Using the oil supplied with your new tool, unscrew the cap & cut off the very end
of the plastic tube with a pair of scissors to release the oil.
Switch your tool on, gently squeeze the oil tube & apply 2 drops of oil onto the
blades. Leave the tool on for a further few seconds to allow the oil to thoroughly
spread across each of the blades. Switch off the tool & remove any excess oil by
gently dabbing with a cloth.

CLIPPING TIPS
Hit up www.vsformen.com.au for more grooming tips, inspiration & guidance on
how to get the best use of your clipper.
CREATING AN ALL-OVER EVEN CUT
1. Ensure the clipper is switched off.
2. Attach the desired cutting comb guide as required.
3. Switch the clipper on – the blades will start to move.
4. Start cutting at the nape of the neck, holding the clipper with the teeth of
the clipper pointing upwards, ensuring that the comb guide is resting flat
against the head.
5. Slowly move the clipper upwards and outwards through the hair towards your
crown, against the direction of the hair growth. The comb guide will help to
lift the hair and the blades will cut the hair to the length as shown on the
comb guide.
6. Once the desired length is achieved at the back of the hair, start clipping the
top and sides.
7. Hold the clipper to the front of your hair with the teeth pointing towards
the back of your head, and move the clipper towards your crown. Repeat as
necessary, moving in rows from the front and the sides of your head to the
back.
8. For finishing around the ears, attach the required ear taper comb guide and
trim down any longer hairs around the ears.
9
THE CUT & DETAIL / TOOL TIPS
CREATING A SHORT BACK & SIDES LOOK, WITH
LENGTH ON THE TOP
1. Ensure the clipper is switched off.
2. Attach the desired cutting comb guide as required.
3. Switch the clipper on – the blades will start to move.
4. Hold the clipper to the front of your hair with the teeth pointing towards
the back of your head and move the clipper towards your crown. Repeat as
necessary, moving in rows from the front and the sides of your head to the
back.
5. If you then wish to take the back and sides of your hair to a shorter length,
switch off the appliance and attach a shorter comb guide.
6. Start cutting at the nape of the neck, and with the comb guide flat against
the head, move the clipper upwards and outwards over the area you want to
take shorter.
7. Repeat on the sides of the hair, starting with the teeth of the clipper pointing
upwards and comb guide flat against the area above the ear, again moving
the clipper upwards and outwards.
10
THE CUT & DETAIL / TOOL TIPS
OUTLINING
1. To tidy up the edges around your cut e.g. neckline and sideburns, detach the
comb guides.
2. Hold the clipper upside down, so the front of the clipper is facing towards
your head.
3. Hold the clipper straight on your sideburns or neckline and move the clipper
downwards. This will give you a clean, smooth finish.

THE CUT & DETAIL / TOOL TIPS
CLIPPER CLEANING &
MAINTENANCE
Because the clipper blades are precision made for a very special use, they
should always be handled with care. To ensure long-lasting performance of your
clipper, it is important to clean the blades + the comb guides after every use.
After each use, clean the clipper blade set as follows:
1. Switch the clipper off or unplug from the power outlet if it is charging.
2. Remove the blade set from the clipper as shown below (fig 1).
3. Using the cleaning brush, gently brush and blow any hairs from the
blade set and head of your clipper.
4. Replace the blade set as shown below (fig 2). Make sure that the taper
lever is set to the lowest position before replacing blade set.
5. Do not disassemble the blades for cleaning.
6. After replacing the blade set, always remember to oil the blade of
your clipper.

closest trim possible.
5. Move the trimmer slowly and carefully, so as not to cut any hair you do not
intend to trim.

the blade and can result in injury to the skin during trimming.

marking is visible
