One of the biggest costs that you can avoid are trips to the hairdresser. Although I would hate to put myself out of business ( if I was still doing hair) it is possible to stretch a haircut. Learning how to cut "bangs" or the front of their hair can "buy" you a few extra weeks before you have to get the rest cut.
But first, does this look like the face of a kid excitedly hoping for a haircut? Yea, he wasn't too thrilled. Sorry buddy, I hate that long in the face thing the guys have going on right now.
She was also thrilled to be getting her hair cut. I think she was just mad I was doing it and she didn't do it herself.
Don't be afraid to cut your kids bangs. Just do a little at a time and QUIT while you are ahead! We all have horror stories of our Mother's cutting our bangs too short, so don't keep cutting, just walk away! But the most important thing is to layer the bangs to soften them up and blend them into the rest of the haircut.
Once you have the length cut. Pull the "bangs" up from the side and cut off the point to make them lay really well. Take a look at the video where I show you how.
This works well on husbands to extend the life of their haircuts also! Good luck, don't be afraid.
