One of my best investments was a $25-$30 haircut kit from Target. I bought it shortly after my husband and I got married 5 ½ years ago and I’ve cut his hair ever since! Owning a hair clipper has not only saved us money, but it also SAVES my husband a lot of TIME if we can cut it in the evenings or weekends instead of having to schedule an appointment or wait in line at a barber shop. Now that we have a son we can save money on his haircuts as well!
I’m obviously not comfortable cutting my own hair (although there was about 6 months that I had my husband cut mine!), so my daughter and I get ours professionally cut. Keep in mind that there are many salons that give you cheaper rates if you come with your hair already washed and wet. It SAVES them time and MONEY if they don’t have to wash and style it for you. The women in your family can save a few dollars too!
Does the thought of cutting a guy’s hair make you cringe? Don’t worry! It is not as hard as it looks. There are haircut kits that come with an instructional DVD which can be helpful. My best AdvicE is to always start with the thickest blade guard and then go down from there (until you get the hang of it). Even if you do make a mistake (which I have made a time or two), it isn’t the end of the world. The guys just get a shorter-than-normal hair style for the next 4 weeks Ü
