The Buzz Cuts are Back

Written by dad - 3 Comments

One of the first signs of spring has visited our house… Three out of four of our boys are once again sporting buzz cuts. It’s not secret that I cut my own hair, and in the summers we buzz the boys as well.

The lone holdout right now is our six year old, whose hair has recently garnered compliments ranging from people telling him that his hair “looks like gold” to someone saying that it’s “delicious.” As long as that keeps up, I suspect he’ll want to keep his hair. The good news is that his hair grows the slowest of the four, so it still hasn’t gotten shaggy.

What this means in practical terms is that we now only have to worry about one case of raging bedhead before getting the boys out the door to school. And guess what? The boys love this as much as we do. No more combs running through scraggly hair, much less of a rush in the wee hours of the morning, etc.

  1. I’m holding off on getting a flat top until probably next week. I want it before I head to Atlanta for a coaching clinic and the marathon, but I don’t really want to have to cut my hair again before my May 4 marathon. My guess is that even if I wait until the day before I fly out for GA, my hair will be longer than I like to race in but not long enough to warrant cutting before the next marathon. Which is actually the length my wife prefers that I have…

  2. I just had my lovely wife cut my hair short for the spring. I too have been having home haircuts for about three years now. It seems too much trouble on top of everything else to make and keep a haircut appointment.

    The link to cutting your own hair inspired something I’ve been thinking about for some time now—

    Is there some easy way to keep track of all those ways we save money and keeping a running tally? Something easier than a spreadsheet? Does anyone do this? We are in the midst of trying to save for one of our goals, and since I’m more motivated to save than my wife I’m always looking for incentives to help her realize the benefits of our efforts.

  3. This is EXACTLY why I wanted all boys….after two girls, I finally got my wish–a little boy. Now I can buzz rather than curl and clip and brush and spray, etc., etc. 🙁
    Now I just have to convince him (and his father) that it is very frugal for MOMMY to cut their hair….
