The traditional barber shop is quickly becoming a thing of the past for many reasons. Of course the biggest reason is there are not too many men who are opening up shop to cut the hair of men. Most stylists want to work with women’s hair since there is more money involved with the more labor intensive styles that women want. One other reason is men do not want to go to a beauty salon to get a quick haircut so many are resorting to cutting their own at home.
For whatever the reason for a lack of barber shops many families and men are saving money by purchasing hair clippers and just doing it at home. If you have never used a pair of electric clippers they are very easy to use and getting a good looking cut really does not take any experience at all. Many come with several sizes of blade guard which you can use to get a varying length of cut to fit your preferred appearance. If you have a father and couple of sons by cutting your own hair at home you can save the family hundreds of dollars a year and never have to make an appointment that may not fit into your busy schedule well.
