A Cut Above

I am surprised that I passed First Grade. My cutting skills are lacking. If it were not for my paper trimmer I don't think I ever would have gotten into scrap booking.
In the name of saving money we have been cutting the boys' hair for quite some time. However, Sean has been extremely busy and does not cut it as often as I like. I decided that it was time to take matters into my own hands and learn to cut their hair. I watched some You Tube videos and then attempted to give them something other than buzz cuts.
Ian really isn't mad this is his attempt at an angry face, pretty scary.
The first time I did their hair it looked pretty good. This time however, I had to have Sean clean up my blunders. Erik's hair is Short! Ian's looks fair except for the places you can see the scissor marks. Aaron's looks fantastic! Aaron's looks especially good because Sean did most of it.
Since my skills lie in other areas I decided to teach Taylor how to cut hair. It is more like the blind leading the blind but pretty soon I think we will have some good economical haircuts on some handsome young men.

Mine were not so good either, but are improving. Thankfully my boyfriend is proficient with the shears. He has been cutting mine for quite awhile, saving me hundreds of dollars, without the drama of the bad haircuts I got at the salon. I did start doing my children's hair (with his help) and now I am saving hundreds more a year.
