I haven’t had a haircut since late February 28th according to Cashapp. It’s July, during my evening walk I noticed hair has grown over my ears. I ordered clippers from E-Bay to cut my own hair ya’ll. From time to time I cashapp my barber because haircuts are built into my budget each month. I ordered Andis clippers cleaners from Petco for $7.40 versus $28.99 for the same exact price on Amazon. I just did some price shopping and cut down my cost by comparing prices via google. ¬†Ordering clippers is forcing me to build some skills I missed out on in college. My total cost for goods was $58.73 and the cost of one haircut is $40 Victoria cut my hair and it was amazing, my grooming budget is a $100 a month and now that’ll go into another bucket until the number of cases drop.

A few tips:

  1. Consult with a barber or someone who has cut hair prior to buying a set of guards and clippers.
  2. Do not cut your own hair with liners. Your haircut will not turn out nice.
  3. Get some cool care plus for cleaning your clippers, you’re going to need them.
