The last time my husband and I received a professional hair cut was in May of 2004. It cost us $18.00 each. So, if my husband received a hair cut once a month (probably realistic for a male, right?) that means we’ve saved $216.00/year on his haircuts.
For me, I’m not sure what is realistic for the visit frequency for a female, but I’ll guess once every three months. Total savings from me – $72.00/year.
Grand total possibly saved = $288/year
WeÂ bought a good pair of hair cutting scissors for $7.00. I cut my husband’s hair and he helps cut mine. For my hair, I start it by cutting it to the length that I want. Then, my husband comes in and evens out my cut. I’m getting better at making it even first try so eventually he may not even have to help. I should note that we both have straight hair and receive straight cuts. Nothing fancy with our haircuts.
As for my son, he’s never had a professional cut. His hair is cut by mommy. I have no idea what the going rate is for a child’s haircut so I didn’t factor that into the savings. I’m sure it would put us at saving over $300/year.
I also have been my natural hair color for some time now.Â I used to dye it blonde but it really wasn’t worth it to upkeep the color.Â Plus, after abusing my hair for a while I’ve come to appreciate it’s natural state (it has blonde, light brown and red in it).Â So I guess that would put the savings up a little bit more 🙂
