Margaret's Week

Posted by  | Monday, May 23, 2011  at 4:21 AM  
It is my turn this week and I'll be sharing just a few quick tips that have been helpful (and fun) for me lately.  First, let me reintroduce myself.  I turned 30 last month and have been married to my wonderful husband, Ben for eight years.  We have three children.  Meredith is 4, Jonathan is 3 and Lydia is nearly 1.  We currently live in the UK, where my husband is studying New Testament.  Here are all of my loves on a recent trip.


The first tip I wanted to share is regarding haircuts!  My mother in law had always cut my husband's hair and it never dawned on me that this would someday be my domain.  That is, until we had been married about a month and my husband informed me that he needed a haircut!  I had never done this before, but we went out and purchased a hair clipper set and I got busy.  (Any one from Walmart will probably do fine, we purchased a Wahl HomePro.)  It was actually easier than I thought it would be and I've been cutting everyone's hair ever since (with the exception of my own, though I have done that too a few times). We've saved tons of money over these past eight years and although I sometimes cut it too close on one side and it isn't always salon perfect, I try to keep in mind our Grandpa Laird's sound wisdom, "The difference between a good and a bad haircut is three days."

I cut my husband's hair as well, aside from a barber shop cut for special occasions. It does save a good bit of money!

I LOVE your grandpa's advice! that is especially true for guys' hair--just give it a day or two to grow and any mistakes will disappear. Too funny!

...not if you've seen my husbands hair, LOL

Of course, we've been in WF for 5.5 years and yet to find someone that can cut it decently, there are days I've been tempted to shave his head. But, yeh, I like his long hair too much. :)
