Recently on Instagram I mentioned how I cut my boys hair at home which saves a ton of money. I asked if you wanted a tutorial and you answered with a resounding HOLY-COW-YES! Have no fear, my “How to Cut Boys Hair” tutorial is officially here!! (Aren't you proud I actually followed through when I said I'd do something?!).
First off, let me be clear that I am NO professional hair stylist. I'm probably doing it all wrong. But you asked how I cut my boys hair, so I'm happy to show you! Over the years (through lots of bad haircuts, trial, and error…) I've mastered the 10-12 minute haircut, and it ends up looking pretty dang decent. I mean, look at this cute kid:
Heaven knows I've had practice, my boys' hair grows like MiracleGro plants on steroids. So in true FunCheapOrFree fashion, while it may not be fancy, I'll show you how to cut boys hair at home…in under 15 minutes! HINT: It's not as hard as you might think.
BUT WAIT! Before we get to the video, a reminder to be sure to subscribe to Millennial Moms so you can see my videos every Wednesday.

See, not too hard right?!
It takes a little practice but in time, you get faster and faster, and the cuts look better and better.
Here's the kit we use:
And our favorite gel:
If you were curious this is the best hair gel EVER – Gorilla Snot. Yes, it's a thing, and yes, it's AWESOME!
…and here's the Instagram post in case you missed it and were curious.
Cutting your kids hair at home can be a GREAT way to save a few (or many) bucks! The walk-in haircut place by my house is charging $25 (plus tip) for a basic toddler haircut. What?! Spend that $25 on a hair cutting kit and save month after month! We got ours from Costco for around $30 and it's awesome. You can cut your kids hair, your husbands hair, even your own if you're brave! This is NOT to replace a relaxing trip to the salon or a fun new style courtesy of the awesome hairdressers out there. But if all your child/husband needs is a quick trim or buzz cut…bam! Savings!! I have been cutting my boys and trimming Priya's at home for years. Would you guys like to see a video on how I do it?
