The Story of Us :)
About a year ago my wife and I moved to a small town that everyone has heard of now, but that nobody lives in; Forks, Washington. A fairly new series of young adult novels has been released in the last couple of years that are based here, in Forks. (The books, if you are wondering, are the Twilight series by Stephanie Meyer, check out my Amazon affiliate link if you want a good read, and wooohooo, I could make like 9 cents or something!)
Anyhow, living in a very small town means that options are pretty limited, and we kind of thought we could save a little cash at $20 or $30 a cut.
Aside from saving money we were actually were pretty interested in being able to cut hair when we needed it, because we are pretty busy parents of two pretty busy-bodied little girls. I build websites (here at home) and my wife is an author, so we have plenty to do other than chasing our toddlers around.
Also, I really don't like crappy cuts. Now I cut my wifes hair, which she says I do better than at least half of the people she has paid to do it in the past. I can do it in 30 minutes, and she is able to deal with mine in 20 minutes, cow-licks and all.
One other thing I didn't mention above. We save time. I don't have to schedule around my local stylist who only works part-time (and kind of weird hours at that).
How about you? Do you drive 10-15 minutes to get to your favorite stylist? How long do you have to wait once you get there? How much do you pay that person? Either way, do I think knowing how to cut your own hair home is for everyone? No, but it sure works for us, maybe this site can help you decide if it is for you too!
