One of the skills a frugalista should master is how to cut her/his own hair.
I've been to a professional hair saloon five times, which ranges from $30 to 60 dollars every visit not including tips. That's PHP 1,500- 2,400! I also tried going to a beauty schools that offers $14 a cut for their students to practice, but I don't have much luck.
As my quest to a cheaper alternatives, I realized that maybe, just maybe, I could try a DIY approach to cutting my hair. Is it possible? Hmmm...
I googled and voila, lots of information popped up. As I searched deeper, I realized that it's doable. Huzzah!
I am no expert with cutting my own hair, but I should say that its decent, plus it saves me tons!
Note: Items mentioned below were bought prior to minimalism and extreme frugal lifestyle.
So I bought myself a thinning scissor, coz my hair is so thick it could feed an entire civilization if my hair is a kind of food. I also bought a hair layering blade. Between the two, I use the thinning scissor more, but I could live without it as there are cheaper alternatives out there, like a regular razor. I am using a regular scissor which, they said, is not advisable coz it might damage your hair. I say, so what?! :)

This is one of my frugal tips as an OFW. You can't get a PHP 100 haircut here so might as well learn the tricks to cut your own hair.
Learning a skill takes time, practice and patience.
