No one in my family pays to get their hair cut. I cut everyone's, including my own.
I know what you're thinking, "Why, Myfriendconnie, but your hair looks stunningly mediocre!"
Isn't it great that I can achieve that for free?!
My husband and son like their hair very short, which I can cut very quickly with one of those clipper sets I picked up for about $20 at WalMart. Which, incidentally, is about the cost of one haircut.
All of my girls have long hair that I keep trimmed straight across in the back. It's very simple really. I just make sure I only cut a little at a time. I can always take off more if it is uneven.
For my own hair, I found this site to be very helpful. Since my hair is wavy, I like to keep it layered, and little imperfections don't show.
I layer it by turning upside down and gathering it all in a high pony tail on top of my head. Then, while upside down, I just cut the pony tail straight across the top. Not too much, though! A little bit at a time, then check, then go back to trim more if needed, is the best way to go about it.
I figure that we would spend literally hundreds of dollars a year if we all went to salons to get our hair cut. Even those discount hair cutting places would add up for 8 people several times a year. Doing it myself saves a bundle!
