My father is a fan of cheap haircuts and seldom pays more than $7 to get his hair cut every two weeks. This weekend he got a free cut by me after realizing electric razors are not so expensive.
While running errands this weekend we ended up at Target, were he bought an electric razor that cost $20. We did the math and he has been paying
$14 a month and $168 per year to tame his hair. I’ve never seen anyone grow hair as fast as he does. He was sold.
“We’ll be saving money,” he said.
I’ve told you about some of the ways I save money on shampoo, but that’s as far as I would go. I wouldn’t give myself a haircut. I’m simply not that frugal. In fact, my last haircut, which included shampoo and blow drying, initially cost $40, but I talked my stylist down to $18. Let’s just say she got a really good tip.
I’ve been known to cut my sister’s bangs if they are falling over her eyes, but my dad’s locks were a bit more challenging. What if I messed up his hair?
My father instructed me on what to do and I read the razor directions.
“Start with the longest one and don’t cut my ears offs,” he teased.
I didn’t. It was fun discovering another frugal ability of mine. I’m pretty good! My new skill may even bring in some cash as I’ve told a couple of friends I can cut their hair for $5. They’re thinking about it.
