One of the ways we save quite a bit of money is by cutting our own hair. By that I mean I cut everybody’s hair. We purchased a $20 pair of clippers, which is about the price of one haircut now-a-days. The clippers usually last around a year. I only use the clippers on the boys because it’s pretty easy to buzz their hair off. It may not look professional but I don’t think it looks bad. The last time I did Joel’s he asked, “Are you sure your a professional?” I’m sure I’m not, because moments later I proceeded to accidentally cut his ear with the clippers.
It looks like I’m really butchering his hair and torturing him, but really he’s just got light hair and wanted look silly for the camera.
Jonathan likes my hair short and that means getting it cut monthly by a stylist. Well, short hair for me isn’t in the budget right now. So, now I’m growing it out. I’m about ready for the change anyhow. I think I’m just getting past that middle length awkward stage, where I just can’t do anything with it.
The girls have had shorter hair but are now growing it out too. I did have to even out Lydia’s hair a little and think it turned out okay. It was the first time I had attempted to cut the girls hair, not counting bangs. I’m looking forward to fixing their longer hair again. There’s so much more fun things that you can do with girl’s long hair. Time to start a new board on Pinterest.
Do you have any bad memories of getting your hair cut at home?
