Title: A CUTTING ASSEMBLY FOR A HAIR CUTTING DEVICE
Abstract:
There is provided a cutting assembly for use in a hair cutting device. The cutting assembly comprises an optical waveguide having a sidewall corresponding to a long edge of said optical waveguide. A portion of the sidewall forms a cutting face for contacting hair. The optical waveguide is moveable between a first, retracted position and a second, extended position. During use the cutting edge is arranged to be in contact with the hair in the extended, and not to be in contact with hair in the retracted position. The cutting assembly further comprises a movement mechanism for effecting cyclic movement of the optical waveguide between the retracted position and the extended position. A hair cutting device is also provided.
