Cutting boys/men's Hair
Getting hair cuts in our house is getting quite expensive...
Does anyone cut their DH's hair or son's hair? What do you use?

i cut both my husbands and sons hair. I bought a kit from wal-mart in the
section where all the curling irons and stuff is that came with a video,
clippers and everything. it is really easy to do.

I bought a set of clippers at Walmart for about $30.00 a couple of years ago
and started cutting my DH hair. It has more than paid for itself. But he
likes his hair really short, so it's very easy.

I too bought the kit at Wal-Mart that came with all the guards and a video.
I've been using it for about 3-4 years now. I cut my dh hair probably every
4 weeks, as he wears a hard hat while working and it gets very hot where he
works. So he wears it pretty short. I used to cut my ds hair, but now that
he's a preteen, he is getting very picky about his hair, so I take him to a
local barber who only charges $8. for a cut.

I've cut my husband's and son's hair for many years. My oldest son won't let
anyone else cut his hair. I use sharp scissors and a fine toothed comb. I
just watched my hairdresser cut mine and copied her techniques. If you've never
cut hair before you might want to get a book from the library on cutting hair so
you can familiarize yourself with the basics. It really isn't that hard.

Now see this is something that I want to take advantage of. I'm so sick
and tired of spending $16 for my son's haircut! (he's 12!)

I have cut my dh hair since we married.
He likes his longer than the clippers cut.
I cut his bangs straight across his forhead, right above his eyebrows.
Using that measurement, I comb up small sections..section by section
until every hair on his head is the same length.
I'd look for a video at your local library or library book.
thank you all for your help,

I tried doing it once. It was a huge disaster. We went back to either the
beauty schools, finding an inexpensive barber and a place at the mall that cuts
hair for $6.50. You really just have to shop around.

It depends on how they want it cut on if I do it or if I get my MIL to do it
If they want it clipped off I will do it but if they want it cut they have
to go to MIL or pay to have it done. One place to check for a location of
would be a Beauty College. They do haircuts for a reasonable price for when
you have to pay to get a haircut done. The cuts are double checked by one of
the instructors before you leave and they will fix it if it need to be fixed
