  • I do for both of my children. Thanks to YouTube I've learned to cut their hair. Very instructive videos!

  • I always cut my girls' hair at home. I just used a pair of hair scissors.

  • Yes, I cut my husband's hair and both of my sons' hair. My husband cuts my hair, too. It's just so much easier to do it at home! I guess I just sort of taught myself. I started doing it when my oldest was about 2 years old and the first couple of cuts probably weren't that great, but I'm really good at it now.

  • My SO buzzes our 2 year olds head lol..every couple of months and he does ok. Sometimes he will get irritated an want to get up, but I just tell him to be still and we will watch Nemo lol..works everytime. Now if I had a girl, I would take her somewhere...I wouldnt trust myself with that task lol

  • As a professional, not everyone can just cut hair. I have had more parents come in after jacking up their own kids hair trying to save some money. Trimming yes, but a full blown haircut I wouldn't suggest it. I have been cutting my kids hair for years now, and it's not that simple for me to get a decent haircut in.

  • I cut my kids hair , thanks to youtube , I also cut my own and my husbands , the only one that does not get her hair cut by me is my 17 yr old daughter cuz she says she'd rather die , so I told her do something extra for mom and I don't mind paying for it and she does she will clean my room. or do some extra laundry for me and run erands to the store for me.

  • I do my LP's and both our daughters. It isn't anything too complex though. Just long with very mild layering. My grandma is a beautician though, so after watching her do it a couple times, she told me I could easily do it at home, and I did.

    That said, my daughter cut a giant block of hair out of the middle of her forehead once and I had to do awful bangs on her to even out what she had done and hope they grew fast...yeah...she told everyone "mommy cut my bangs" and I thought I would die of embarrassment...no kid...I did not just up and decide to give you mohawk bangs. sure didn't. LOL
