Every Monday in 2015, I’ll be sharing a different idea to help you save money! Add all of these tips to your frugal repertoire and you’ll be able to save a lot of money this year! I hope you’ll gather a few new ideas or at least some inspiration from this series. 

Cut Your Own Hair to Save Money

One of the ways we like to save money at home is by doing at-home hair cuts for my husband.  (I’m not willing to let him have a go at my hair quite yet :))  While I’m not an expert in the least, no one has ever said anything bad about his hair!  After all, I simply cut his hair the same length all over, then trim his neck with the trimmer and around his ears with a pair of scissors.  Simple!  I estimate were saving at least $20 every 6 weeks or so.

I think it also helps that we have a decent hair trimmer to work with!  We have the Wahl 3231 22 Piece Home Pro Haircutting Kit which we purchased after reading the reviews on Amazon. So yeah, if it weren’t for this great $18 tool, we’d be spending a lot more on haircuts throughout the year!

While I’m not quite brave enough to cut my own hair at home, I have cut my own bangs. I’ve also trimmed my daughter’s bangs. (Which I’ve now decided to grow out.)  Here are a couple of tutorials I found that may me useful for you:
