Update Spring 2020: Many students are finding this course during COVID-19 induced lockdowns. Safe healthy out there, cut your own hair!
Learn to give yourself a military haircut! I designed this course specifically with military folks in mind because we tend to need haircuts on a weekly or semi-weekly basis. However, whether you are in the military or not, this video course will be a useful investment of your time and money. You will be well-prepared with the knowledge and skills to forego the barber for the rest of your life.
What will I learn? This concise, easy-to-follow course will teach you how to cut your own hair. You will never have to see a barber again.
Why should I learn it? Barbers are expensive, time-consuming, and you never know what you will get. Quit subjecting yourself to that! With this course you will save money, save time, and always look great.
Now for some numbers:
If you need a haircut every week, like me, that's 52 cuts per year. The national average men's haircut costs *$28 but military cuts tend to be a bit cheaper. So, let's use half that to be conservative: $14 including tip. 52 * $14 = $728 per year! If you are in the military for four years, this equates to $2,912. Ten years? $7,280. Twenty years? $14,560. And that's not even accounting for inflation and the opportunity cost of that money, but that's a discussion for another time.
Now, let's look at the time cost of going to a barber. You need to drive there (and hope that they are open), wait in line, get the actual haircut, pay, then drive home. Let's very conservatively say this only takes half hour. 52 weeks * 30 minutes = 1,560 minutes = 26 hours. That's right, you are spending at least an entire day every year getting your hair cut. Now, let's say it takes an hour. 52 weeks * 60 minutes = 3,120 minutes = 52 hours. Over two days per year! It takes me less than ten minutes to cut my hair (and so will you after practicing a few times). 52 weeks * 10 minutes = 500 minutes = 8.33 hours. Barely the equivalent of a full work day.
Is it worth saving all this time and all this money? I think the numbers speak for themselves.
For years I have been perfecting the technique taught in this course. After taking it, you will have the skills to perform the same cut on yourself. This will give you the know-how and confidence to perform my technique and it will get you proficient in using the equipment. With practice, you will be able to use what you learn here and begin experimenting with other hair styles.
