What saves me at least $450 a year?

I bet you have thought of doing this your self if you have more than one guy in your life. I happen to have 3 and let me tell you it gets expensive getting my guys hair cut every 5 weeks are so (3 maybe 4 for my husband, he like a chia pet).

Well anyone can do a buzz cut but thats not something I find very attractive, i'm a crew cut kinda gal. So I went online to YouTube and watched a million videos on cutting guys hair. Was I ready no, I just new id mess up big time but I dove in and learned along the way what works and what don't.

My kids hair easy peasy, My husband not so much his hair is like broom bristles Ive never seen anything like it. When I first started cutting their hair it was a real chore and took forever, but I stuck it out and now 2 years later I can have all three of them done in 20 minutes with clean up, and I think of how much money I just saved.

Ya maybe its not for everyone but if your thinking about it go ahead and give it a try, you may need to do it a few times before you get the hang of it.

So Maybe not $100 hair cuts but they work for us, and with all the money we save I can go get mine done!

Great post! We haven't paid for haircuts since I couldn't tell you when.
I was scared to try it, too, but really, there's not hardly a way to mess it up.
Well, ok, sometimes I trim the over-the-ears and sides a little off-kilter without the guard, but it grows back out fast.

I don't know how you wear your hair usually, but if you let it grow out some number of inches, Great Clips will cut it free if you donate your hair to the Locks of Love thing.
I'm not sure if it's just Great Clips around here or all of them, though, I can't see anything about on their website.
