Barbershops Vs Cutting Hair At Home: It's Worth It!

Posted on

If you have been cutting your partner's hair for years, you may feel bad when they tell you they are going to try a barbershop. Many people take great pride in their ability to cut the hair of their partner and children, however, if you look on the bright side, you will see that there are many benefits to using a barbershop instead. Here are a few perks that may help you to feel better about the transition from home-haircuts to barbershop cuts. 

Save Time

If you have done it every other week for several years, cutting your spouse's hair may just be another chore you have to do. However, you may be surprised by how much time you actually save by letting them get it done elsewhere. For example, most people have to set up a little haircutting area by removing rugs and getting out the equipment, then there is the chore of cutting the hair of anyone who needs it, followed by showers and a lot of cleaning. Depending on how many people need their hair cut, the whole process could take an hour or so. That's a lot of time that could be saved. 


Fortunately, most barbershops are extremely affordable. It will probably not be too much of an expense to have your partner get their hair cut professionally, even if their hair grows quickly. If you think about it, it will probably be as much as you pay for a nice dinner in town each month. 

Try A New Look

The fun part of going to a barbershop is that your partner will be able to try a new look that may help them to feel more confident. If you are a professional cosmetologist, you may have the skills, but for the people who learned to cut hair from internet videos, there will probably be an improvement. Your spouse will probably have more options than they have previously been able to choose from. 

In conclusion, spending a bit of money each month at the barbershop may be just what your family needed. You will likely have a bit more time to do what you want, while your partner or children enjoy a new look that helps them to feel confident. It may not be what you had originally imagined, but you may really enjoy the freedom the comes from letting a barber cut your partner's hair. Look for a barbershop in your area that your partner can try.
