Representing a CARBON COMB EVOLUTION, next gen comb clips go to great lengths to offer superior heat resistance, anti-static and non-slip qualities for better stylist control, speed and efficiency 

(BUFFALO, N.Y.) – Based on the wildly successful launch of the original Barracuda Comb Clips last year, Amplify the Stylist has updated its line of precision styling tools with THREE new hybrid combs: 

  • The Extra Long Amplify 257B Carbon Tail Comb – with a longer 10” stainless steel tail, it’s perfect for any type of sectioning. 
  • Amplify Hybrid Carbon Comb 927 – this all-purpose hybrid comb inspires all types of styles due to its smooth, strong, flexible and sturdy grip. 
  • The Amplify Carbon Comb 295 (available November 2023) – the latest addition to the Carbon Comb Evolution styling suite, this 10” extra long cutting comb allows for durability, speed and precision.

Like the rest of the products in the Amplify the Stylist line, all of the new combs – made from a special resin and carbon fiber combination – are corrosion-free, non-slip, anti-static, heat-resistant (up to 365 F, 180 C) and can be sterilized by boiling. They’re made in Japan and are chemically resistant to acid, alkali and oil. 

“Like the Barracuda Comb Clips before them, what I’m calling the Carbon Comb Evolution represents the next generation in comb technology,” said Amplify the Stylist founder Rob Burgio, who is also an award-winning Goldwell National Artist, Master Stylist and owner of Tesoro Salon in New York. 

“After seeing the interest and success with the Barracuda Comb Clips, I knew I had to find a way to reinvent the most commonly-used combs so they would offer a better-quality, more versatile and innovative option to what’s currently on the market,” said Burgio, who estimates he’s trained over 5,000 professionals during his 30-plus year career. “And because I’m also an educator and stylist who literally uses these combs every single day, I know what a hassle and detriment it can be to have low-quality tools that don’t perform the way you need.” 

With demonstration videos on YouTube, Barracuda Comb Clips and Carbon Comb Evolution Sets are the ideal choice for women’s short haircutting, men’s grooming, hair extension installation, Balayage application, color blocking and even makeup application.

On April 21, 2024 Burgio will be appearing on the main stage as well as hosting a booth at “America’s Beauty Show” in Rosemont, Illinois. He also plans to be at numerous hair shows in 2024, showcasing Amplify the Stylist products and providing the latest education, techniques and tools to new and established stylists.

The Amplify Combs retail for $11.99 each or $6.99 wholesale. They also come as sets: 1- Amplify HYBRID Carbon Comb 927 and 1-Extra Long Amplify Carbon Tail Comb 257B, for $21.99.

All tools in the Amplify the Stylist line, including its revolutionary Barracuda Comb Clip, which increases user control, speed & efficiency, are available on, Burgio’s website that offers videos and step-by-step tutorials with descriptive PDF head sheets to accompany all tutorials, in addition to a professional line of styling tools. The tools can also be purchased on Amazon and eBay, and are distributed globally through Goldwell, Hair Brained and M.I.X.
