    Default Sent my son for a haircut . . .

    He's 16 and likes his long shaggy hair. He finally suggested a haircut today and I was thrilled! I've been asking him for weeks to get his hair cut. So, I sent him by himself for the first time (with a coupon of course! ) to Supercuts. I told him if he comes back with a substantial amount cut, that won't just last a few weeks, I'll pay for the haircut. If he comes back with a tiny little trim, that I really can't tell the difference, he pays. We'll see what happens!

    I guess he doesn't trust you to cut his hair, huh?

    Nope! Wish I could, but I'm horrible at it. It would save so much money to cut my family's hair, I wish I could do a good job! I do cut my daughter's hair, which is super easy. But, the boys are a different story.

    Well, he came home and guess what?! I won! It looks GREAT and no argument about cutting more off while I'm sitting there watching! He told the stylist (who also cuts my hair) about our deal and she did a great job! That was too easy.

    That is an awesome idea! I'm going to borrow that idea for my 16 year old son if you don't mind.

    Way to go!! My dd just spent a fortune on her haircut and you can't even tell. She paid for it herself so I can't really complain. She went to a way fancier shop than I go to. She does not even like it to boot! She has her hair really long and straight she wanted just a few layers, or at least that is what she said she wanted. She could have had that done at the cheaper place and not have been out as much money.

    Funny how young people think that the more they pay the better service they get. They all went to school to be a beautician and learned the same thing. LOL
