One of the best ways to save money is doing the family's hair at home. I know that can be a little intimidating or even scary, especially when scissors are involved. But I just gotta tell you, there are so many really good tutorials available online for free that learning isn't as hard as you might think.
Let's start with the easiest and least intimidating first - no scissors involved. Little girl hairstyles. Learning to do twists and braids is absolutely the most affordable way to up the cuteness factor for your cutie. Hair Today is a great place to learn really cute little girl do's. Some other great hairstyling blogs include Babes in Hairland , Hairstyles for Girls, and Girly do's by Jenn. Oh. my. goodness. Couldn't you just die of sweetness when you see a neatly combed and braided little girl? Seriously. And that sweetness comes in triple doses at my house.

All right, let's talk cuts. The best resource? YouTube. Tons of videos that show step by step how to cut hair. Every style imaginable. Just go to YouTube and do a search. Watch and learn. Gather your courage and give it a try.
Save yourself a ton of money and learn to do hair at home. Not to say that an occasional trip to the salon is not in order. It's a wonderful treat to be enjoyed. But with a family our size, home is an absolute budget saver!
