When we very first started our Dave Ramsey budget, we had a line for Mr. Serious’ haircuts. But even at the cheapest place, with a tip, it was running about $15-$20 per haircut. And he needed it cut every 2-3 weeks. Which is insane! His “grooming” budget was more than mine!
We (okay, maybe me) decided that something needed to change. So, we picked up a professional set of clippers and I learned how to do a “fade.” We did that a couple times, and I think it looked pretty good. He did, too, but it turned out to be pretty time consuming. Then, he made a bet with a coworker around weight loss. And even though Mr. Serious lost a ton, he didn’t quite lose the same percentage as his coworker. The result? He had to shave his head.
But, it turns out that his loss was a blessing in disguise. We both decided we liked it shaved (not bald, but a “one” if that means anything to you). So, we could quickly shave his head and save like $30/month on his hair care. We’ve been doing this for a little less than 4 years! That’s a lot of money.
What we realized, though is that even though we had the clippers for the bulk of the hair, cleaning up the edges requires something that can be a little more precise.
We were sent the Philips MultiGroom Plus to test out and it fit the bill perfectly. I could trim his neckline and around his ears without worrying about taking out a huge chunk of hair.

We’ve been very pleased with the Philips MultiGroom Plus. It holds a charge really well and does a great job getting close to the skin so Mr. Serious’ neck looks nice and clean-shaven. Plus, it’s under $40, so it will pay for itself in less than two months of home haircuts!
