Before my husband and I got married over 11 years ago, he had a regular appointment every other week to get his hair cut. This usually cost about $12-15 each cut. Then I decided if I watched carefully how the barber cut it, I could probably duplicate it and cheaper to boot!
You can view some videos on youtube about how to cut hair.
For the last 10 years or so, I've been cutting his hair. And for the last 6 years, I've been cutting my own hair. I know that sounds crazy but I've had really short hair that was pretty easy to cut. Over the last year, however, I've been letting it grow out. So there isn't much to maintain now. I also cut all of our children's hair. This is a huge cost saver and I'm glad I'm able to do it.
I purchase hair clippers at Walmart about every other year since it's cheaper to buy new clippers rather than to have the blades sharpened. A nice set of clippers will cost about $20.
Cutting your own hair can save you as much as $400 a year! That's a lot of moo-la!
