Backyard Barber Night

So about 3 years ago we decided to stop fighting the haircut war with The Politician and just buzz it ourselves. It's definitely a backyard job, although we do it in the garage when it's really cold.

So tonight was Haircut Night. He really does like it now because he gets 4 packs of Smarties to cajole him to sit still.

My favorite part is vacuuming him off when we are done. It's my own version of the Flowbee. I desperately wanted a Flowbee, and searched all over (OK, for 5 minutes online) only to find out it doesn't cut a buzz. So we just wheel the vacuum outside, hook up the attachment, and vacuum up all the hair! You're totally not dreaming, that's the brush attachment on the left side of the pic.


Here's the finished product, complete with "Cheese!" face. And we'll do it all again in a few weeks.

Pin It!

I fight the haircut war with my husband, who is 30! I've pretty much given up so we buzz his hair in the bathroom...what a mess. I've never thought about doing it outside...genius!

My mom used to buzz my little brother's hair outside when we were kids! She never vacuumed him though! Thats a great idea!

You are genius. I've known it for a long time. Where have you been on the BHB? I miss you so hard there.

If I could have done that to Shaggy without making it look like a prison cut, i would have - we had to visit the barber every 3 weeks!

BTW, he is just too cute for words!
