Homemade Haircut

I had one must-do today - go get haircuts for 2/3 of my children.

And then I thought about getting everyone dressed, and possibly waiting, and entertaining the two year old in the barber shop while the older two got their haircuts. And well, I chickened out.

I've tried my hand at cutting Stephen's hair before, and I'm a bit traumatized by the experience.

But I'm older now, wiser, and he's older, too.

So after some internet research, I found this great tutorial How to Cut Boys' Hair Like a Pro. I read it twice and full steam ahead we found ourselves in the kitchen playing "hair cutting store."

I'm so pleased how it turned out! If I do say so myself. By no means is it perfect. But you know what? Even when the professionals do it, it's not perfect. His hair is so straight. I believe we'd have to put him under general anesthesia to get it "perfect."

I cut Laurie's hair, too. It was much easier and forgiving.

A penny saved is a penny earned, right?! Well, I made $22 this morning.


  1. how funny that SS has stick straight hair! by the way, my dad cut my hair until i was in 8th grade.

  2. We did the same thing a couple weekends ago. I cut my husband's hair, and my three big kids'. I even gave myself some bangs!

  3. It looks great. I've recently tried to find ways to decrease our monthly budget, and this is one area we're cutting. I'm going to try the YouTube video. Thanks for posting! I cannot bear to fork out $20/haircut anymore!

  4. wow, his hair looks great! I've been cutting my son's straight hair for years but I went to the link and I'm definitely going to try some of those pro tips. Too bad I just cut Ben's hair over the weekend. . .
