Does anyone here get their haircuts at home – for themselves and/or their children? Most likely given to you by your spouse and you to your children. How much do you save a year by avoiding the barber?
And this may be a silly question, but can you give yourself a haircut?February 29, 2012 12:53 am at 12:53 am #856971
One can save tons of money by giving oneself and his family a haircut. I am assuming this is a guy. If you buy a haircut machine, you can give yourself a buzz very easily and for sure for your kids.February 29, 2012 12:55 am at 12:55 am #856972skiaddictMember
There is a haircutting machine for men specially made that you can give yourself a haircut, i saw the advert of it.February 29, 2012 1:09 am at 1:09 am #856973R.T.Participant
Sorry — I go to my (frum) barber and he does a wonderful job. Even if he’s away/on vacation, I would rather wait. He knows how to cut around my payos, etc…
Plus, I know that in a way, I am contributing to his parnassah, etc…

I use a buzzer on my kids. I assume I am saving $320 a year but I wouldn’t really know cuz I don’t know what the going rate is. One of my kids cuts his own hair with the buzzer.February 29, 2012 1:53 am at 1:53 am #856975ShrekMember
my 5 year old will come to your house to cut hair, no charge. He has loads of experience.February 29, 2012 2:59 am at 2:59 am #856976dash™Participant

I give my self a haircut regularly.

I only once gave myself a buzz.

You don’t need a sepcial machine, I use an Oster Classic 76.February 29, 2012 4:04 am at 4:04 am #856977SaysMeMember
we always did at home haircuts. But looking back, my mother always said she wishes she hadn’t :). And don’t give at home cuts to kids past 8-10, if they’ll feel embarrassed abt not having a style for girls, or the wrong type of ‘bangs’ cut for boys.February 29, 2012 4:26 am at 4:26 am #856978
You can just buzz off all your hair-long buzz-cut or short-just watch the payosFebruary 29, 2012 5:10 am at 5:10 am #856979MDGParticipant
I cut my own – been doing it for years.
It took several times before I got it right.
About an inch on top, about 1/2 on sides and edge with 1/4.
It helped me when I have cut other people’s hair.
I got a better understanding of what I do to myself.
For the back of me neck, I wrap a belt to create a line to “shave” under. That’s easier than using mirrors.February 29, 2012 11:53 am at 11:53 am #856980That Big Bear AgainMember
Can you really use the buzz cut machine yourself? Do you need a cordless model to do your own “Chassidishe” cuts?
The water here makes my hair grow unevenly, and I’m of the “zero” blade persuasion anyway because I don’t have much hair left. Neither male barber in town is located conveniently for me, neither one is a Yid, and neither one exactly relies on me for parnosso. I could take the machine to the mikve and pay someone to do it for me but I don’t want to carry the machine around from home to shul to mikve.February 29, 2012 6:07 pm at 6:07 pm #856981
You can give urself a buzz cut-just watch out for peyosFebruary 29, 2012 6:32 pm at 6:32 pm #856982miritchkaMember
i give my son a haircut at home. Aside from the mess, he and i have a good time! My husband, he wont let me touch his hair but I think i may get to him after a few more fantastic haircuts to my son…lol!February 29, 2012 11:55 pm at 11:55 pm #856983
miritchka-how old is your son? An older son may have your husbands view and no want u to touch his hair.I wouldnt let my mother touch my hair.March 1, 2012 12:49 am at 12:49 am #856984more_2Member
Blackhat, would you allow your mother to gell your recent haircut done by the barber?;) I suspect it was frizzy based on how the Barber cut it!March 1, 2012 4:00 am at 4:00 am #856985
more_2- I am glad u are keeping up with my posts 🙂 Still adjusting to the new lookMarch 1, 2012 6:31 am at 6:31 am #856986moreMember
Black hat, I’m sorry if I hurt you, I just didn’t think you were for real…March 2, 2012 2:41 pm at 2:41 pm #856987miritchkaMember
balckhatwannabe: lol! my son is three! I’m taking advantage of this time. I’m hoping he’ll be ok with it for at least a decade before i have to start shelling out the money for haircuts! Besides, if your mother/wife/brother/father/sister does a good job, whats wrong with her/him cutting your hair? There are so many woman who cut adn style shaitels and i’m sure, almost 100% sure that giving a boys haircut is so much simpler…March 2, 2012 9:39 pm at 9:39 pm #856988
miritchka-nothing wrong with that-i wouldnt trust if it is a trial run.
