Another reviewer added: ‘I bought this originally for my son’s hair. 

‘But it gives a great even look all over and is so quick! My husband now uses it for his own head as it’s so easy to use, he does it himself!’

Actress Emily Pendergast, 33, didn’t even use a comb when she gave her husband Cory, 42, a quarantine haircut that was so horrific he actually had to buzz off most of his locks when she was done.

To the delight of the internet, the Los Angeles-based couple shared a hilarious video of the at-home haircut on Facebook last week, where it has been viewed more than 2.7 million times.

At the start of the viral clip, Cory stresses to his wife that he just wants a trim, noting there shouldn’t be that much hair to clean up when she’s done.

But just seconds later, she chops off a huge section of his bangs, and he jumps off of the toilet to assess the damage. 

The viral video has shared more than 65,000 times and has received thousands of comments from people who thought it was hilarious.
