Free haircuts

Free haircuts can be had in different ways. If you find yourself moneyless it doesn't mean you need to walk around like a bum. We all know hairdressers are quite expensive in the Western world. So let's look at some alternatives.

Haircut coupons

If you're lucky you can find coupons for a free haircut, but most of these are mere for a small percentage reduction. Unless you're a veteran soldier or even still in service, we found some free haircuts for veterans, but well, in that case you're usually trimming your hair yourself in a minute or two.

Ask a friend or relative

You might be surprised but many people are pretty good at cutting hair. Just ask around among your friends or try posting a request on a website.
It can be a fun and very social experience to have your hair cut by friends from now on. You can return the favor by cooking a meal (possibly with some free food you get) or otherwise bartering some other kind of service like fixing their bicycle's flat tyre.

Become a model

You don't have to be an underweight junky to become a model. If you dare you can also become a testing model for training hairdressers. Like this you will end up with interesting haircuts for free. Check the local hairdresser schools to find some good options. Beware, it helps if you're not expected with a clean boring haircut at work.

I hope you give these solutions a try some time. You could even throw a haircutting party with your friends.

Bake your own bread

Baking your own bread is quite simple, very nutritious and super fun to do. On top of that you need little or no money to do it. You do need flour, water and salt. With these three ingredients you can make the tastiest bread you ever tried. This is bread without yeast.

Book: Steps Towards Inner Peace

The Peace-Pilgrim was a woman living almost 30 years without money, in the walhalla of money: the United States. She made many walking trips and took only little on those trips. She lived just from what people gave her and she never needed any money!

Her message was about an inner peace that is reachable by anyone. You as well! It's the ultimate form of happiness, always in peace with whatever is there. Always be at peace with yourself.

"Steps Towards Inner Peace" is the book published after her death. The book is available for free. You can order it at the website about the book and there is also a digital version in Dutch and other languages.

Pregnant and no money

Pregnant and no money. What now? My wife and me were sitting at the midwife for our first appointment. We were talking about finances and we were asked how we thought to raise the money, without money. We were slightly confused by this question. And possibly naively we posed ourselves the question: "Money? Do we really need it for a baby?"
