Saving Money on Haircuts

January 25, 2012

Saving Money on Haircuts, HaircutI have been cutting my own hair for quite some time. First you need to invest in a good pair of scissors. I bought mine from a beauty shop supplier.


I lean over and gather all my hair into a pony tail on top of my head and fasten it with an elastic band. I then stand up and trim the ends. Next I lean over again and put it in a pony tail at the back of my head. I then trim off the ends.

I look at it the mirror and make sure the ends are even on both sides of my head. I then layer it using a comb to bring the hair up to the top of my head and trim the ends to different lengths. After this, I will trim the ends whenever I need to to keep it at the same length.

We save so much money every month! About 11 years ago I decided to start cutting my family's hair. I'm so glad I did. I am by no means a professional hairdresser, but you don't have to be.


It is quite easy, it just takes a bit of practice.

Ways to save money on haircuts for men and boys. Instead of going to the barber shop for a haircut my husband and I bought a set of hair clippers for about $50. After a couple of haircuts the clippers have paid for themselves many times over.

My husband and I get free haircuts at least once a month by professional stylists. A local hair salon chain near us runs training classes for new hires and needs models for the new employees to learn their way of styling.

Save money by cutting children's hair at home. Toddlers usually only need a trim. Remember, practice makes perfect.

The barber where my husband used to get his hair cut got way too expensive so we decided to go out and buy our own clippers and now I cut his hair.
