EASY DIY Haircuts – Tips for Cutting Hair at Home

We’re all in this together right now and I’m thrilled to share with you some easy DIY haircuts! Let’s face it – we’ve gone for a few weeks and now we’re realizing just what we actually need to do AT HOME, one of which is haircuts at home.

It doesn’t matter if it’s for you or your kids, it’s the same kind of realization that you need to start figuring out how to cut hair at home.

EASY DIY Haircuts

I’m going to be honest with you right at the top of this easy DIY haircuts post, I’m not a hair professional or a hair expert.


Thankfully my husband is a pro with the scissors and clippers and has been cutting our family’s hair (except mine) for years. He can easily do a trim along the edges for Victoria and he can buzz, clip, style the boys like nobody’s business.

We all don’t have experts around the corner to teach us and we can’t have anyone in the house, so I wanted to find on YouTube some of the BEST easy DIY Haircuts for you and share them below.

I know that this is such a popular topic right now because everyone is trying to figure out the best way to get it done.

My husband can do the boys perfectly. But me? Before my husband even touches my hair, I knew I needed to find some perfect and easy tutorials for him.

One rule I have for cutting hair at home – now is NOT the time to try for a new style. Stick with what you know. Stick with what’s comfortable. Stick with what’s normal.

Have fun with colors right now in your hair, but when it comes to length, layering, styling with the scissors… wait for a professional someone else to do it.

The PLUS side of cutting hair at home? You’re saving a TON of money! Whenever I’ve taken my sons to the barber shop in town, it’s an easy $80+ trip. Thankfully I don’t need to often because my husband does it, but that’s crazy money for a cut/trim.
