My New Cut



 Tonight, I cut my husband's hair.  I do this all the time, so we can save money on cuts.  We also cut my older son's hair too.  It's cut with a guard, so it's really easy to do.  Sometimes my husband will trim my hair also.  Usually it's just the ends. 



But, tonight, I was really sick of my hair being tangled all the time, so I told him to really cut it.  He said how much, and I said shoulder length.  My hair was wet when he was cutting it, and I guess we never thought about it shrinking up when it was dry.  So, it ended up being very short.  A couple inches less than what I originally wanted.  However, it feels so much lighter and I'll get used to it.  So what do y'all think, is it too short, or is it okay?

I think your new cut looks really cute. Counting my blessings in New York City!

I also think your new cut looks really great. My husband was paying 20 dollars every month to have his hair cut until I went with him one day. I noticed all they do is use the shaver with the guards. I found a shaver with 7 different guards on clearance at Target. Found a Beauty school book at a garage sale which showed how to cut your hair and after my cutting his hair and it looking great we now save 240.00 dollars a year.

I think it looks great! And the good thing about hair that (you think) is too short is that it will grow back.

By the time you get used to it, it will be back down to your shoulders.

Hi Nancy:) I love it! I do the same thing with my hair. I want it long, but it bugs me so I'll get fed up one day and have hubby cut it off. He cuts and colors my hair, which saves us a lot. He and our son won't let me cut their hair. I don't think they trust me;) A few too many nips to the ears. LOL. It's good to be frugal! Your haircut looks great, and remember, it'll always grow back. Merry Christmas! Carol

You have mentioned your husband works outdoors and work is a bit more scarce in bad weather....well, may I suggest he consider a career in cutting hair? You look great and he did a wonderful and very, very flattering job ...I think he should always cut your hair.He deserves a BIG kiss from you for this cut.

Wow! I love it!! Pat him on the back for me!! Tell him that a professional said "good job"!!!!

We must have been thinking alike, Sunday evening I had to give him a haircut and begged him to cut mine. He wouldn't dare, but I did talk him into giving me a really long relaxing shampoo in a real shampoo bowl. That's a luxury that a hairdresser almost never gets to enjoy. Also one of the perks of having a salon at my house!! Then I had to cut my own hair, bummer!

I really do like it that length, and it's not too short!!

Cheryl said...

Fabulous!! Makes you look much younger and so sassy!! Gives you a glow.

The older I get the shorter my hair gets. Always taught it's suppose to be that way. I'm not at the point of going to the beauty salon every week...hehehe

Tipper said...

I like it short, looks very flattering! C.O. and I also cut each other's hair.

I should add up how much we save in a year sometime. It'd be interesting to know.
