    Default 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?

    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
