I have a little boy who is always in need of a haircut. My husband and I keep his hair fairly short, but still find ourselves having to take him twice a month to get a haircut.
This can get quite expensive. However, we have found a better way to save on my son’s hair.
Recently, we bought a nice pair of clippers and began cutting my son’s hair at home.
With the clippers, they have different guard lengths so it makes it almost impossible to mess up my son’s hair. After three haircuts, we had paid for the clippers and now save a lot of money every month on haircuts for our little guy.
While I am able to do my son’s haircuts at home, I am not as comfortable to cut my pre-teen daughter’s hair. Still, we are able to save when it comes to her hair.
My daughter has an extremely simple hairstyle. She likes keeping her locks at the length of her shoulders so the longer style allows us to stretch out our time between haircuts. We typically go eight weeks between cuts.
By keeping her haircut simple, we also are able to take her to a discount salon for her hair care needs. We have found our favorite hairdresser and she provides us a great quality haircut for a fraction of the cost. Our salon also provides coupons, which makes our haircuts even more cost effective.
Another tip we have learned is not to blow dry my daughter’s hair. We let her hair air dry. We that blow drying causes her to have more split ends. Split ends means more trips to the hair salon.
