Are you wondering how you can save money on haircuts?
There’s many ways you can save money. I’m the queen of trying to do most things myself. I just this past week cut my daughter’s hair. She’s never expected a nice salon cut. I just whipped out my scissors and went for it. I think it looks pretty cute and she’s happy with it. Her hair is long and straight. So it wasn’t too difficult. I’d say a girl’s hair is much easier to cut than say a boy’s. I used to cut my boys hair too. I’d just use clippers and buzz they’re hair back in the day. I mean after all hair grows back. I always thought it looked good and when the boys were young it was easier to cut their hair in front of a favorite movie than it was to take them to get their hair cut. It was a win/win.
Save money on dog haircuts too
I also cut my dogs hair. His hair grows so fast. He’s a maltese and a shih tzu mix and his hair needs cutting every 6 weeks with me cutting the hair on his face after 3 weeks. His haircuts are $50 each time I take him in to have it done. Well that’s more than I spend on my own haircuts. So I wasn’t about to pay for that when I can do it myself. My friend used to be a vet tech and she told me what to do to have an easier time cutting his hair. Here’s how I do it.
First I put him on my outside table. Then I attach his leash to a door knob or to my outdoor canopy over my deck. If he moves too much using this method then I attach a belt to the canopy and under his belly so I have more control over whether he stands or sits. This prevents him from sitting. It helps me do his back, back legs and backend. I bought my dog clippers from Amazon and got this pair of dog hair clippers. With two haircuts you’ve paid for your clippers. I estimate that I save $300/year by doing this myself. I have pretty much watched a few youtube videos and the rest I have learned by just doing it. I give him a buzz cut every time I cut his hair and it grows out before I know it. I don’t mess with guards I just buzz him. He wears coats and sweaters in winter when I still have to cut his hair. I know when to cut his hair after all this time. I don’t want his hair to get matted so I cut it every 6 weeks and it prevents that. It takes me 45 minutes and I consider 45 minutes and a saving of $50 a win!
Another way I save money on haircuts is by using Great Clips when they have their $7.99 sale. We all go in and get our hair cut then!
If you use these methods you could easily see a $400 savings each year. By me cutting my girl’s hair, giving the boys a buzz cut and cutting my dogs hair each month you see a significant savings.
