Anyone remember the Flowbee? That has to be a Boglehead approved way of cutting hair.
We have on more than one occasion had someone stop us on the way to the common room with our vacuum in tow:
-What are you guys up to?
-She is going to cut my hair!
-Do you have a flowbee? I used to cut my girls hair with one of those.

DH is younger than I and was raised out of the country until his teens. He had no idea what everyone was talking about.

I go to a chain place in a strip mall near the office. Full price is $14 + $5 tip but they sell discount cards for $9.99. Unfortunately I can't get my kids to go there. My wife put it in their heads that it is low class and "they don't know how to cut kids hair".

I used to go to a beauty school to get my hair cut, so did my DH. They changed $7.50 for a shampoo & cut. If you were 'elderly' (over 55), it was $5.50. The students always did a great job. Unfortunately the school moved to the other side of town and it wasn't worth driving there. I went there for almost 33 years. Now I live outside a small town. There are a few salons here. I guess I'll have to ask around.

$0

Plug in clipper, #2 guard, #1 guard for the back and sideburns, Left and Right angled guard for around ears.

2-3 week intervals. Takes about 10 minutes.

I got tired of spending $20 for a haircut and then coming home and fixing it myself.
My experience exactly.

All these posts remind me of when a few years ago, my partners( I'm an attorney) were doing a big case and we had a mock jury hired by our jury consultants. One of my partners was a good looking guy who looks like Jason Bateman, same great hair and he dressed beautifully and has expensive salon haircuts. The other guy who was an engineer before going to law school was pretty much the polar opposite. So we are observing the jury deliberate ( there's 2 way mirrors ) and they get into this long tangent argument about whether "the guy who does not look like Jason Bateman" is wearing " a bad hair piece" or " is just the kind of cheap schmuck who cuts his own hair". It was cringe inducing to stand next to him while we observed. Mr Not Jason Bateman got a better hair cut after that but any time I hear about anyone cutting their own hair I flash back to this. Though I'm sure you all do a great job I wouldn't let my husband buy a clippers for just this reason.

$10 @ Great Clips w/ megacorp discount + $5 tip

I love their online reservation system and queue management.

The good barbers here have a two hour wait and no queue management, so it's a disaster unless you have a lot of time to sit.

Since there are so many DIY'ers, in case anyone else is interested, here's what we use:

Clippers (bought February 2015, still going strong): https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000JNQSIQ/
Scissors (they make a big difference compared to regular scissors because they swing more freely): https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00KVYBY8M/?th=1
My wife uses Wahl Sterling 4 Clippers, Forfex trimmer and Shark Fin scissors. The Shark Fin scissors cut very precisely and have a nice rotating thumb piece, but there is zero reason for anyone to spend $300 on scissors if you aren't a professional stylist (she earned hers free of charge). So a [former] stylist agrees with your choice of clippers brand.

$50 for a cut including wash and blow-dry styling, plus $10 tip. I have been going to the same stylist since 1984 and go twice a year. Worth every penny.
Similar. Going to same person since 1981 or 1982. $55, including tip. Go every month.

Is it worth every penny? The opportunity cost of not getting a haircut has not been explored.

Here is a sea story for you. I pay Zero. The last time I paid for a haircut was back in the summer of 1983, I left the barber shop extremely upset, went home, immediately shaved my head, and have done so every day for the past 34 years. Note, I used to get a military style haircut every payday [every two weeks], that's a LOT of money saved. Wishing YOU and YOUR family a Merry Christmas, and thanks for reading.

I pay $20 + $5-$10 tip. The only place I know of that is $50 for a basic men's cut is SF (I used to get haircuts a lot when traveling) - of course I suppose if you look hard enough you could probably find someone willing to charge you more :)

I get a buzzcut every month in a HCOL area. #2 on top, fade to #1.5 on sides/back. Straight-razor shave of sideburns/edges with shaving cream.

Old school barber shop in HCOL trendy strip mall = $21 for haircut +$5 tip
Closer to my work is LCOL barbershop = $14 + $6 tip = $20 (chintzy to ask for change from a $20).
My swanky gym has men's cuts for $40+$10 tip = $50.

BUT 11yo daughter can do almost as good a job, and I've started to let her do it every 2 weeks. Let's face it, it's pretty brainless to work a 1.5 or 2 razor with those guards, and she's getting better at fading. I work in the OR all day and wear a scrub cap, and have a pretty casual lifestyle outside work.

So $50 x 26 = $1300 into her Roth IRA every year.
You can seriously do that? If so, could I play tennis with my daughter for an hour twice a week, and put $60/week into her account as a "personal trainer"? I am serious because, for me, practicing with her does have an ulterior motive of getting my exercise instead of walking for an equivalent amount of time.
Your call - it is your IRS audit.
Haircut passes muster - I figure I have a listing of what my spa charges and I take iPhone pics every haircut.
Sports lessons - I think it's good. My Triatholon trainer charges $80/hr for swim lessons. My 11yo could coach the same sets and provide the same feedback.
Gray area: My kids don't do backyard poop patrol, and I hate it. There is a "Doody Calls" poop patrol service that charges $24 for weekly poop pickup <0.5 acres for 2 dogs. If I get my kids to do it, that is earned income....

Suburb of Charlotte, NC. Old school barber, frequency about every 3-4 weeks. Clippers, then thinning out the thick area with scissors. Straight razor trim across the nape of the neck. He charges $12, I pay him $20. In the summer he always gives his customers tomatoes, okra, squash, and cucumbers from his garden.

I live in Los Angeles. I used to pay $55 + tip. Three years ago the salon I went to moved to a fancier location and raised its price to $65. I thought that was steep. I called a few other salons in my area found one that charged $45, and was immensely proud of myself. A year ago the new salon raised its price to $50.

I'm shocked that with over 100 responses, I don't see any male paying more than me. But, good to finally be a one percenter!!!!! :sharebeer

Free. We have a Oster 76 with various heads and yes, the Flowbee. Buzz cuts for the summer and the Flowbee for the winter.

My Dad has his Flowbee for about 20 years. He picked it up really cheap when Lechmere went out of business. Once I had a family, he bought one for us!

Haircuts here in Mass run about $15-$20 plus tip.

I stopped spending $30 for my salon cuts, and couldn’t stand the awful barber $15 cuts. So went back to cutting my own hair, and I do it better than the ones I paid for. I used to cut hair in college so I’m not a noob, but it does take a lot of time and the cleanup is inconvenient. Still, I’m saving a lot of money.

Only I use $200 wireless clippers.

My daughter who was a Marine told me a number of times I need to find a [(removed) --admin LadyGeek] barber close to a military base. She claimed they are much more precise than barber shops for old white guys like me or salons with beauty school grads working. She said the expectations are higher and they take the time to do it right. I assumed she was blowing smoke up...

While camping near Newport RI we took our shaggy little grandson for a cut. Found a military oriented shop with a nice younger man available. 45 minutes of incredible precision later the grandson was a new boy. My wife had always Cut my hair but not that day. My cut took maybe 20 minutes but he went over every area multiple times, trimmed my beard, ears, etc. sharpened every edge. Wow. That hair cut looked perfect for at least a month.

$15 for me and $12 for grandson for about 1 1/2 hours of work. I happily handed over two twenties. The only problem is that the shop is about 1 1/2 hours away. We’ve been back a couple times.

Can people include whether they are balding or have a full head of hair, as this could influence the need to have your hair styled some which would in turn effect the price.

Holy cow that's expensive (to me).

Pick up a $25 Wahl kit (or similar) and try doing yourself. Really not that difficult once you've done it a few times. Start with the No 8 attachment and slowly work down to desired length in respective areas. Over ears use a lower # attachment etc. Kinda fun to do to, and you can do it at your convenience. Easily save :moneybag a year doing this esp if one gets a haircut frequently.

I used to pay $15-20 for a cut and after awhile I realized they weren't doing much more then I could easily do myself.

Wahl Clipper Chrome Pro Hair Clipper, Haircut Kit for Men Total Body Grooming 24 pc

Buy a plug in one. I got a free 'rechargeable' small trimmer w/ my Wahl kit, it was worthless in a month.

TIP: do this in your garage! keeps your bathroom clean.

I pay $38 + $12 tip for wash-cut-dry, but I think that's a special rate for me because I have been going to him for 15+ years. It's the same rate he charged me 15 years ago. I tried cutting the kids' hair and butchered it. After that, I took them to the barber for $12 + $8 tip for cut. 10 years ago, the barber was $10.

$15-$18 plus a $15-$20 tip. To have to put your bare hands all over the scalp of a stranger to me deserves more than what I tip a waitress for simply bringing my food to me at a restaurant.

$19 senior rate plus $5 tip. Nationally franchised barber shop with old school ambience.
