Haircuts are ridiculously expensive. In the two years I’ve lived in DC, I have not once gotten a haircut here in the swamp. I always wait until a major holiday or some other excuse to visit my parents at my childhood home, then proceed to visit the local barber. That alone saves me $10-15 a visit.

You know what’s even cheaper than a $13 haircut? A free haircut. Stop spending money to get your child a haircut he won’t even appreciate and cut it yourself with this Philips kids’ clipper, which is on sale today only:

Twenty-five bucks (about the price of one adult haircut in the city) is a small investment to make. After you give your child two or three trims, you’ll have made up the price of this device and more. Makes sense to me.

Also, as one 5-star reviewer, notes in his review: “5.0 out of 5 starsNot Just a Kid’s Hair Cutter. Cuts Hair of Any Age. Practice Will Make Perfect, But the Attachments Make if Faster.” Here is M. Cox’s entire review:

Rather than risk trimming a squirming baby for the first time, my wife wanted me as a test subject so that I would stay still while she cut my hair, which needed to be cut anyway. She has never used this style cutter although she cuts my hair regularly because I just hate to wait 45 minutes to pay a high price for a bad haircut. She cuts my hair better than any hair stylist and I don’t have to leave home and it doesn’t cost anything except for the tools. She just taught herself practicing cutting my hair and did a very good job the first time and has improved over the past 4½ years we have been married.

The video is less than 3 minutes long.

So she isn’t exactly a novice, but she does a much higher quality haircut with her regular tools she has been using for several years. But that is to be expected. So using various different attachments, she did a fair job considering this is her first time with this type tool. It doesn’t matter if the person’s hair being cut is 73 years old (me) or 3 months old. This will work exactly the same. Hair is hair. It may be thick or thin, but it’s still hair and cuts much the same way. The attachment tools help keep you from cutting hair too short, but with the wrong attachment, you can cut hair too short. You still need some practice before you’ll become an expert, but it shouldn’t take more than two or three times to get the hang of it and improve from there. If you are cautious and take your time, you will do just fine the first time. You still need scissors and a comb and a few other accessories to do touch up work. Not everything can be done with this clipper set, but almost everything.
