In general, men need to have their hair cut at least every month, or at least, need a little touch-up on their hair. A men’s haircut ranges from $10 to $20 on average, just like that, a man has to spend from $120 to $240 each year on their haircut. If your family has 4 men, the amount of money would be 4 times higher, which means from $480 to $960.
You don’t have to spend that much of money if you consider having a haircut at home, you can cut your own hair or you can ask someone to cut your hair for you.
Why should you have a haircut at home?
You can save a lot of money:
It might not be that big of a deal if you just need to cut your hair once in a while, but when you need to do it every month, the amount of money accumulates, especially when there are many men in your family.
You can save a lot of time:
You don’t have to drive to the hair salon, get in line, wait for your turn, then drive home. The staff there might talk you into using some of the services that you don’t really need. I personally have experienced that a lot and ended up spending a lot more money than I expected to spend.
In fact, it only takes roughly 10 minutes for the cutting part and a few more minutes to clean up.
You can get a haircut anytime that you want:
No matter what the time is, no matter how the weather is… Be it in the middle of the night, or national holidays…
For example you have an important appointment tomorrow and you want to look presentable but all the hair salons are closed at the moment, or when you need a touch-up at the last minute, what would you do?
You can improve on your barber skills:
You might be pleasantly surprised at yourself. I can assure you those skills could really come in handy, you can use it on yourself or on others.
You can even make an income out of it if you’re good enough.
From those things mentioned above, we can safely say that learning to cut hair at home is the best solution.
What will you need?
Hair clipper: Choose the one that is suitable for home use.
Since you are cutting your hair at home, you might be doing it to save some money. The difference between professional hair clippers and hair clippers for home use is how often they will be used.
You don’t need the best hair clippers since you don’t need to use them hundreds of times a day. Professional hair clippers are likely to be bulkier and heavier and you would probably prefer something lighter and portable.
