Taking Matters into Your Own Hands
There are many goods and services that we pay for when there might just as easily be a do-it-yourself solution. You might be surprised to consider that cutting your own hair is one such service! Obviously, when we say “cutting your own hair” there are only so many hair projects that can be accomplished as a single individual — but almost anything can be done with the help of a friend or family member.
Whether you have a short cut, long cut, bangs, or even a mohawk, you can achieve pretty awesome results with the right tools, education, and obviously, practice. And let’s be honest — there’s no better time to try your hand at this new skill but during a pandemic. You’re seeing people less, and you’ve got plenty of time to study up!
How Much Can I Save?
We’ve done some simple math for you, just to illustrate how cost-effective it can be to cut your hair at home. You might just be surprised at some of these figures…
The average men’s haircut costs $28. If the average man gets his haircut every 4 weeks, then the average man spends $364 each year on haircuts. Imagine how that cost compounds over time. That means, over the course of three years, the average man is spending over $1000 on haircuts. Wow! Meanwhile, our Getting Started Collection for Short Hair is just $235.99. That’s less than the average man spends on his haircuts each year and will last for years to come.
The average women’s haircut costs $44. If the average woman gets her haircut every 8 weeks, then the average woman spends $268 each year on haircuts. Imagine how that cost compounds over time. That means, over the course of four years, the average woman is spending over $1000 on haircuts. Wow! Meanwhile our Getting Started Collection for Long Hair is just $188.00. That’s less than the average woman spends on her haircuts each year and will last for years to come.
