Why are guy haircuts getting so expensive? By the time Ben pays tip and everything to his boy Jeremy at Sport Clips it’s like $22 which adds up to $264 a year! So when I came across this blog post I decided that it wasn’t rocket science and I would give it a try.
Even though the tutorial I read suggested $5 scissors from CVS, we splurged on a $10 pair from Tarjay (we’re fancy around here!). Ben took a quick hair bath to wash the gel out, but it was mostly dry by the time I started cutting.
This was the only out-of-focus before profile pic I got of him, but he was definitely a scruffy bunny in need of a chop-chop.
We set up shop in the dining room and our high-back dining chairs came in mighty handy. I was pretty nervous because selfishly I didn’t want to have to look at a bad haircut for the next several weeks on my hotty hubs.
I started with the easy trim work. The tutorial I watched didn’t use trimmers at all, but Ben said that Jeremy always used a #3 on the bottom part. “Jeremy this, Jeremy that…” I got tired of hearing about his “ex”. I shaved his neck and used the trimmers for everything but the top. Bowl cut, anyone?
Who doesn’t want to have a little pretend soul patch fun in the midst of a haircut? I bet Jeremy wouldn’t have allowed that at his fancy salon – ha!
I trimmed the top a tiny bit longer than finger length and did all my cuts vertically so he wouldn’t look like The Three Stooges. With all this hair, you would have thought Ben was a man-beast…
Fear.the.beard. Disclaimer: this was prior to Ben and I dating and no, he’s not embarrassed in the least. I bet your man couldn’t grow a beard like this!
Here’s the final product – helloooo, sexy haircut! It honestly looks identical to Ben’s regular haircuts (minus the $22). Eat it, Jeremy! I cannot believe how easy (and surprisingly fun) this was.
Now, what to do with that extra $264 a year… Anyone else cut your husband/kids/dogs/hamsters hair?
