The movable comb body and the stationary comb chassis cooperate to form a complete attachment comb unit. To supply the adjustment feature, a plurality of adjustment formations are located on the stationary comb chassis, and at least one cooperating adjustment formation is located on the movable comb body. The movable comb body can be releasably secured upon the stationary comb chassis in one of the predetermined settings by a mating interaction between one of the plurality of adjustment formations and the at least one cooperating adjustment formation. One of the predetermined settings may be selected whether the attachment comb unit is in an attached state or an unattached state with respect to a hair cutting device, and whereby the selected predetermined setting is maintained even after the state of the attachment comb unit is changed from an attached state to an unattached state and vice-versa.
