I am hard pressed to think of any single purchase or investment which has a higher return on the money than a good Wahl home barber kit. I picked mine up at Costco and paid about $25. With tip, a cheap boys haircut costs about $15 – $20. With all the options available in the Wahl kit one can do just about any style you want without too much practice or effort. Since we have a son in addition to myself the normal 2-week haircut cycle would normally cost us $60 – $80 per month. As such, in our case the Wahl kit more than payed for itself within the first few weeks of ownership. I’ve even got to the point where I can cut my own hair in a pinch (a simple military style has its advantages!). The math here is fairly complelling – a $25 investment that returns about $800 – $1000 per year each and every year for the life of the product. I can’t find a better value and just wish that there was a way to put more money into it.
