1. A vacuum cleaner comprising:

  • a cleaning head having a suction nozzle adapted to be moved along and in contact with a surface to be cleaned in a first direction and a second direction opposite the first direction;

    a hair collection assembly provided on the cleaning head and comprising an elongated, cylindrical hair collection element which is stationary relative to the cleaning head and adapted to collect hair from the surface to be cleaned as the cleaning head moves along the surface to be cleaned; and

    a cover flange on the cleaning head extending beneath and partially covering the hair collection element to substantially preclude the hair collection element from collecting hair on the surface to be cleaned when the suction nozzle is moved along and in contact with the surface to be cleaned in the first direction and to allow the hair collection element to collect hair when the suction nozzle is moved along and in contact with the surface to be cleaned in the second direction.
