There is disclosed a cutting mechanism (4) for a hair cutting apparatus (1), such as a shaving apparatus, comprising an outer cutting member (6) comprising a plurality of hair-entry openings (14) and an inner cutting member (8) comprising a plurality of cutting elements (18) each having a first cutting edge (20). The inner cutting member (8) is moveable with respect to the outer cutting member (6) so as to perform a cutting operation within a cutting region of the cutting mechanism. Adjacent hair-entry openings (14) are separated by a dividing element (16) comprising a cutting section (32) that lies within the cutting region and a non-cutting section (36) that is outside the cutting region. The non-cutting section comprises an inner wall (30) facing the inner cutting member (8) and a side wall (24) which is substantially perpendicular to the inner wall (30). A single chamfer (40) is provided between the inner wall (30) of the non-cutting region and the side wall (24) of the non-cutting region.
