Haircuts can get expensive. People often ask me who cuts my boys hair. I do! If I had to go every 8 weeks to get their hair cut and it cost $7-10 each, that would be nuts!! I started when my youngest son was about 1 year. I took him to a barber shop and gave him 3 suckers to keep him busy while he got his hair cut. Madness! It took FOREVER!! My poor little guy was exhausted. Needless to say from that day on I was determined to cut my boys hair at home for free! I do my three sons and my husbands hair.
Try it next time. Be patient and keep trying you will get better each time.
I use this Conair razor from Wal-Mart. It was $20-$24. They last me about a year. I have my three sons and my hubby's hair to do about every 8 weeks. So it saves me a good chunk of cash!
I use the #1 or #2 clip. The #2 is a little thicker and will not cut as close to the head as the #1. Depending on how my boys want it that day.
This is the size 1. I start with this one first and do the sides back and neck.
This is the number 7. I use this for the top of the head. I use the next size down #6 to taper the sides around the temples of the hair. So it doesn't look like a bowl cut ;)
I did this hair cut inside because it looked like it was going to rain. Usually I do them outside. In the winter I just lay down a sheet and then shake it outside when I am finished.
Start at the sideburns/ear and slowly move up till you are just above the eyebrow then start to pull out towards yourself.
When ever I got to this stage my boys love to look at themselves in the mirror.. ;)
This is both sides and back cut with the #1. Top is still long and the sides need to be tapered.
Then I use my #7 or #6 to do the top I start at the side and work my way back. Make sure to go slow and get all those little hairs. I do a lot of sweeps thru the hair to make sure it is all even.
My older son likes his top a little longer. I use the #7 and #8 for his.
Shower and get some gel on that hair. This is the finished product!
This is my handsome little model. He did a great job getting his back to school haircut. I always give them a treat when they are finished.
Happy Hair cutting!!
