Haircuts For Little Men:
A Simple Guide to Cutting Your Son’s Hair

Do you dread having to drag your young son to the barber shop? Is your schedule too hectic to plan ahead for haircut appointments? Do you have several kids in need of haircuts but don’t have time to spend a whole afternoon at the salon? Are you looking for ways to cut unnecessary expenses? Would you like to learn how to cut your children’s hair at home? Well, you’re in luck!

“Haircuts For Little Men,” an e-book by homeschool mom and hairstylist Nancy Baetz, takes the mystery out of cutting hair. This tutorial is twenty pages long and has nearly thirty color photos. It also contains a list of supplies needed, suggestions for materials and products, many of the author’s personal tips and tricks, and it’s warmly written with a touch of humor! This book is a great guide for frugal moms who want to cut their family’s hair at home, especially for large families with lots of boys. Haircutting is a skill that will save you a great deal of time, money, and stress.

The prices that barbers and hair salons charge to cut a little boy’s hair can be quite expensive; and having more than one boy in the family can cause that cost to be even greater. If you like the men in your family to look clean-cut with a good basic haircut and don’t care about the latest salon style, you must get this book! Using the techniques in “Haircuts For Little Men” with no previous training, I cut the hair of my three sons (ages 9, 14, and 19), and cut my husband’s and my own hair too!

In general, it can be hard to learn how to cut hair from just reading a book by itself. You may want to watch a barber or hair stylist in action one more time before taking the plunge and doing it yourself. Nevertheless, I think this is as good as any haircutting book can be, thanks to the photo illustrations. If you’re not sure whether you want to invest in such a book, consider this: for less than the cost of a single haircut, you can save hundreds and even thousands of dollars over the years by never having to pay for a haircut again. What a savings! What have you got to lose?

All you need is some patience and practice, and soon you will be cutting hair with ease too. We’ve all seen the results of at least one bad salon cut, right? So how much worse can you do? Just make sure you don’t cut the hair too short to begin with, in case you should need to make any corrections. Each time you will gain more confidence in your new skill, and in a few months you will wonder why you didn’t start doing this years ago. The only problem I have is when trying to taper the sides of my own hair while looking in the mirror because I’m holding the scissors backwards from the way it appears, and cutting the back of my hair.

Anyway, if you have never cut hair before and have been afraid to give it a try, this book is for you. The author is like a dear friend walking you through the process of how to cut your son’s hair, in the privacy and comfort of your own home. The simple step-by-step directions make learning how to cut hair seem easy. The text is accompanied by color photos showing the various stages of a haircut which enable you to visualize each cut and thus better understand the instructions.

If only my best friend hadn’t moved away, I wouldn’t have needed this book. A fellow homeschool mom and former salon owner, she always used to come over to my house and cut our hair for us. Her kids would come along too and we’d often get a pizza and make a party out of it. After her family moved and we had to start going to Great Clips, I kept thinking that I would be better off just doing it myself. That’s when I came across “Haircuts For Little Men,” and since then I haven’t paid for a haircut in over two years. I treasure the savings, not to mention the freedom! Just think – no more trips to the salon!

By the way, if you’re unsure about buying an e-book, that format actually works well for this subject. The downloadable version of “Haircuts For Little Men” is ideal because you can print it out and place it in a binder and the pages lay flat while you’re using it, which makes it much easier to follow the instructions as well as write notes in the margins. You can even laminate the pages if you want to; or simply store it on your computer and then you can print out a new copy if needed.

As homeschoolers we already have a do-it-yourself philosophy, so why should cutting hair be any different? “Haircuts For Little Men” is an excellent self-learning tool for anyone wanting to know how to cut hair. While it’s especially good for learning how to cut your sons’ hair, the techniques can also be applied to your husband’s as well as your own hair. Who knows – it may even inspire you or someone in your family to become a hair stylist! Purchase your copy at
