Do you know how expensive men's hair cuts are? I almost fell to the ground when Tony told me that his most recent paid haircut was £11. We live in a small village with two barbers, so it's not as though we are paying London prices. After that, I decided that I'd swot up on how to cut Tony's hair myself. Gulp.
Thankfully there are a ton of useful YouTube videos to get you started. We bought these Wahl men's hair clippers are just £10.39 – cheaper than a single haircut. The first hair cut was…okay. Tony's hair was shorter. Perhaps a bit lopsided, but it was shorter and slightly neater than when he started. But thankfully, since then, I've perfected my technique and the whole thing now takes 10 minutes including vacuuming up the hair afterwards. The first haircut was done outside, which I won't be repeating any time soon – you won't believe how difficult it is to get hair swept up. But now it's a chair in the living room with Tony's promise of vacuuming it up straight away.
So what do you think of the final results? I set the clippers to “8” for the length, then take off the attachment for any areas that need a closer shave. I've just perfected using the clippers for around the ears – beforehand I used a pair of scissors alongside the clippers to do any shaping needed. Now if only we can get my haircut cost down.
