    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?

    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.

    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…

    My 2 cents worth …

    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.

    I only once gave myself a buzz.

    You don’t need a sepcial machine, I use an Oster Classic 76.

    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.

    You can just buzz off all your hair-long buzz-cut or short-just watch the payos

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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…
