The woman, @queenofmimicsandfamily, decided to order a clipper online for £10 (N15,000), and it was delivered to her.

Now, she is the one who cuts her children's hair. She was seen in a trending video using the clipper to shave the hair of one of the boys.

The woman said it not only saves her money but also keeps the children safe.

She captioned the video:

"Saves money and stay safe."

When contacted, Toyyib Adewale Adelodun, a Nigerian man living in the UK confirmed that it could be expensive to get a haircut in the UK.

He told Legit.ng:

"This is normal for people abroad. The cost of cutting hair is now close to £20 for a sitting in UK, it is even more expensive in some US cities with tips. If you do that every 2 weeks, that's like £500 a year for a haircut. A lot of older people just clean shave. Parents have also learnt barbing skills to reduce expenses.
