If you get your son's hair cut every 6 weeks and spend between $10 and $15 then you can save between $86 and $120 each year by cutting it yourself. In the 1950's it was easy to cut boys hair. All one had to do was get hair clippers and follow the instructions. While the buz cut is coming back in some circles, many boys like the longer styles. Here are some hints to help you cut your boy's hair:
First, let me state that I spent over 2 1/2 hours searching the internet for clear precise instructions on cutting boys hair. Most of what was out there was junk. Sketcy instructions by well meaning moms or eBook scams where the cost of the simplistic eBook was more than a decent book from Amazon!
It will be important to have a few supplies on hand.
First, you need a good pair of scissors. Keep these scissors for nothing but hair cutting.
Second, you will need good clippers.
A high chair or stool will also help.
Finally, you will need some type of cape - though a large towel and clothes pin will do.
Here are some clipper sets from Amazon. My family has used Wahl and have found them to be very adequate.
**Update - we ended up having to buy a new set after more than 20 years. First we tried another brand but had to send it back! We ordered a Wahl and are very happy again!!Click on this link to see many choices of Wahl razors:
