Nah... I go to $5 haircut places in Chicago. In the Philippines I last got a 50 pesos [=$1] haircut but it was terrible.

If I shave it all off, then I'd being wearing a wig after the cut.

My son is an over the road professional driver. He clips his own hair very, very short and sports a goatee. I guess that is stylish for 37 year olds. Looks good on him.

I once waxed my husbands (almost) unibrow. That didn't happen a second time. The Bioré strip was a one time event, too.

My husband has terrible hair. Once it reaches a certain length, it starts to look clownish. Now with some thinning, he just takes the trimmer he bought for his beard and uses it on his head. Then the inspector (me) comes along and takes a look and deems it "good" or tells him where he needs to go over it again.

I hardly get my hair cut. It grows long enough, I finally get tired of it and then I cut it and donate it.

My husband doesn't really have a unibrow. His eyebrows are light brown and he manages to have two random dark brown hairs erupt RIGHT in the middle of his eyebrows. Because they are a different color they really catch the eye. So I pluck them. Otherwise, he doesn't let me touch him because he CLAIMS I am hurting him.

Hubby bought a good set of clippers and has been buzz-cutting his own hair for several years. In addition to saving significant $$ over the time period, he likes that it saves him time. No getting in the car, driving to the hair place, waiting in a chair for the stylist, and then driving back home. He buzzes his hair in something like 2-3 minutes. Saves time and money. What's not to like?

If you like your hair buzzed than I yes what is not to like! If you want your hair trimmed and style, you go to the barber...

I cut my own hair. I could go to a cheap place but if I get a haircut I like the whole thing. The shampoo and head massage and the blow-dry/style. I will do all that plus highlights when my mortgage is paid.

Not necessareky.

People are shocked when they find out I cut my own.

Like I said: you'll end up with a buzz a few times at first, but after that...

Unless your a weatherman or a politician, men don't need to spend money on hair cuts.
