Latest Money-Saving Buzz: Home Haircuts

PRESCOTT VALLEY, Ariz. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Trimming your own hair at home is a cutting-edge way to save money.

So says salon owner Steve Woodham, who’s created a training DVD, Cut Hair At Home Like A Pro, that teaches amateurs how to snip and style.

Woodham says that with a pair of good, razor-sharp scissors and basic knowledge, anyone can learn to cut hair.

He says buzzes and bang trims are “as easy as cutting paper,” but every technique takes practice.

He suggests home hairstylists practice on their kids, who, if they’re young enough, don’t really care how their cut turns out.

They can also trim themselves, though the back of their head may be hard to touch up.

In time, Woodham says home hairstylists can become even better than professional barbers at cutting their family’s hair because they’re so familiar with their loved ones’ heads.

He figures parents could save about $500 a year with home haircuts.
