YouTube taught me everything I know

My children look like orphans.  It's true.  They haven't had a haircut since July.  The littlest one, probably not since her birthday in May.  I hate taking them to get their haircut.  I never know where to take them, and it's never a really good haircut anyway.  No matter whe we go or how much I spend.  I used to take the twins to Kidsnips.  It's one of those kid friendly haircut joints that cons you into buying toys, hair bows and expensive organic kid shampoo.  They liked it and didn't cry, so that's where we went.  Now they are older and want to go to a fancy salon.  I took them to one by our house and I was charged $30 per head for a haircut and blowdry.  And frankly, I think they cut off 1/8 th of an inch.  That's not a haircut in my book.   I've also taken them to the cheapo places, like Great Clips. The price is right, but the asymmetrical cut hasn't been in style since the 80's.  So, here's my dilemma.  Pay for a sucky haircut, or do it myself.  Yes, you heard me right.  Do it myself.  So, I got on YouTube and learned how to be a hair stylist.  Or, how to cut hair in a straight line.  I love YouTube. You can learn how to do pretty much anything.  I watched a video or two and now I know!  And, I'm saving some money.  And actually, I think I'm getting pretty good at it.  I bought some good scissors at Walgreens  for about $20 that cut great.  So, in conclusion, I think haircuts are a rip off.  And hairstylists charge you whatever they want to.  And, it's usually too much.  Especially at those fancy schmancy places.  My next, project is to learn how to cut my own hair.  That should be interesting.  Pictures to follow...
