    When I came to Australia and had my first haircut I found it too costly compared to what I was used to back in my country India. It was almost 20 times costlier. So what I did, I bought a hair clipper for A$30. That covered its cost within 2 months. Does any of you cut your own hair or go to salon or barber's shop?

    I am in India and so I can afford hair stylist to attend to my hair. In fact they come home and do the job for me, including pedicure. That is the plus point of India - personal service.

    I have often thought about buying a hair clipper, however, I have not bought it yet because I don't know whether I can give a proper hair cut to myself. Hair cutting is becoming costlier here even though I trim my hair once a month. When I run out of money, I invite a friend to cut my hair. I return the favor when ever the friend wants a hair cut.

    I am in India and I rarely cut my hair so I don't have a problem with spending money when it was only a few times. Plus I don't dye or style my hair so it doesn't cost me much. I a surprised that it cost you that much for a haircut in Australia. I think in that situation owning a hair clipper is a smart idea which saves money.

    My dad has always cut his own hair and also cut my brothers hair aswell. My mom learned to cut her own hair and taught me how to so I cut my own hair too. We do save a good amount on cutting our own hair and we use regular scissors to do it. It is not too pricey here to be honest but a little savings sometimes come along way.

    I also started to cut my own hair a couple of yrs. ago because I want to save money, and I've been doing it ever since 2012. My hair is just shoulder length, so it's quite easy to cut it on your own, and I do it every 4 mos.

    I think cutting your hair is a more cost efficient way to get a haircut. I only have one clipper but it get the job done for me. All you really need is a couple of mirrors to make sure you are cutting off at the right places and then you are done. Might not be as good as a professional but might be good enough.

    Yes, I first started as a kid, but now as an adult I do it all the time. The only occasions when I go to get my hair done by a hair stylist is when I have a really important meeting or event and I want to avoid any possible mistake. One good thing is hair grows back fast so I don't mind playing with my haircuts, last year I cut 30 cm off and it was completely worth it.

    I am not into the cutting my own hair thing. I can't trust the idea of using mirrors to aid the cutting job. I fear that I might spoil the hair style and if it happens, I would end up having to utilize the professional's services anyway. There are some things that I may be able to save on the cost for by doing the task by myself. However, saving on cost does not have to involve all tasks and I believe that some should be left to the professional's.

    I don't have a clipper (don't have the need for one), but I do make my own hair at home. It is so much more cost effective and it saves me time. Great hairdressers are few in the area where I reside. You have to drive out some good kilometres to get to one. So over the years, I have gradually created a home system that works for me. I do go to the hairdressers, maybe once in two months or so.

    I don't use a hair clipper. The haircut in a salon here in the Philippines is very cheap! We can get a haircut for only a dollar. I don't like the idea of cutting my own hair that's why I always go to the salon whenever I need to cut my hair.
