You know how they say you should never cut your own bangs??
I do it all the time.
Who wants to go in for a ban trim every couple of weeks and pay for something you can learn to do yourself? I don’t. I can spend my $6 elsewhere.
But I actually take it a step further sometimes…and cut all of my hair!
I actually did it for an entire year once.
And do you know that I got compliments all the time on my hair? Especially after I had just cut it. Everyone was surprised when I told them I cut it myself….because no one could tell!!
I don’t spend a lot on my haircuts (never more than $25) but it was sooooo nice to use all that money I saved on getting my hair done for other things! Like getting a pedicure or two—which is also something I don’t normally spend money on since I can do it myself. But it is very nice to get pampered every so often.
I have been cutting my husbands hair since we started dating. As just a rough estimate, if he cuts his hair once a month, at $10 a haircut that’s a minimum of $720 we’ve saved in the last six years! I have also been cutting Luke’s hair for the last two years (he’s only really had hair to cut since he was two years old) and I plan to cut Sam’s as well! So much money saved that way, and it really isn’t that hard.
Here’s my current self-cut fresh from this morning scissors:
I didn’t take a before picture because I usually don’t really plan these self-haircuts. It usually starts with me just wanting to cut off the ends a little to freshen things up and ends with a whole ton of hair in the sink! I just get tired of the same old thing that ends up in a pony tail every day.
And just like that…a haircut.
