Saving Money: Hair Cuts

Kenny and I are pretty cheap. There are somethings that it is pointless for us to spend money on when we could do it ourselves and save a lot of money. One of those being haircuts. For now it is just Kenny's haircuts, maybe someday it will be mine too:) We have made a vow to never pay for haircuts again. This did not come easy. Kenny kept refusing to let me cut his hair, but I was persistent and refused to take no for an answer. It made no sense to pay for something I felt capable of doing for free. After we were married I convinced him to let me try it once, and if he didn't like it, never again. I'd seen it done so many times. My old roommate use to cut his hair, so I had the general idea down. First time was a charm. He loved it and we haven't looked back since.

Money Breakdown

$15 including tip/month
$0 for me to use scissors and cut it myself
$180 savings per year
Whoot Whoot

**Please note the before picture below, Kenny was annoyed and just wanted a fast haircut without me taking a billion photos. I only took four photos and that is why he is less annoyed looking in the after photo :)

Not too shabby:)

Have a great day!


  1. I love your cheapness. Mike and I have taken the vow too. Why pay money when you're just going to get a buzz cut anyways? And for girl hair, I essentially only get trims so I think it can be done.

  2. Nicole you did a great job, I'm really impressed! I didn't know you cut Kenny's hair! Hey, if you want to save money on your haircuts too, I will cut it for you any time for free! I don't know if I ever told you I work as a hairstylist, not just at a bank, and I LOVE cutting my friend's hair. Hey, maybe we could make a tutorial out of it :)
