Save Money by Never Paying for a Haircut

Seriously, how much do haircuts cost nowadays? Last time I went to happy hair the lady charged me $15.00 for a 10 minute clear cut. Then she had the nerve to say "How much would you like to put on your card?" This is the haircutter's way of saying "You need to tip me because your hair is gross." So, all told, a basic haircut costs almost $20 nowadays.
Well, Howtomakeadollar will not stand for this any longer. We aren't going to pay for anymore haircuts.

Why pay for a haircut when you can do it yourself?

A good way to get free haircuts is to get married and have your spouse do it. My wife has been giving me haircuts for almost two years now, and she's pretty good at it. All you need is a hair trimmer and a bunch of attachments that cut your hair at various lengths. I always get a size two attachments for the sides of my head, and then a 7 or 8 on top. A two blade cuts my hair very short, which is the way I like it. I would ordinarily get like eight or nine haircuts per year. At $15 each, this comes to about $120 that I am saving. Fortunately my wife does not make me tip her, so I come out ahead in that regard as well. 

Plan B, if your spouse refuses to cut your hair, is just let it grow out forever. This will be good for your marriage because it will promote healthy competition between you over who can hold out the longest. Ultimately, they are the ones that have to look at you every day, so I think you will win eventually. You just have to be willing to let your hair get really goofy.
