Haircut Coupon

October 22nd, 2013 at 09:08 am

Got my hair trimmed yesterday (I do this every 3 or 4 months) and used a coupon from Great Clips for $7.99. All of my friends get expensive haircuts, but I'm pretty sure you could cut my hair with pinking shears and it would look the same (an advantage of having curly hair). And no grey yet, so no dye (not sure I would anyway - I'm too cheap to spend money on hair dye and I don't like upkeep; also have a big aversion to smells and that dye smells awful!). Having saved money on my haircut, I may have to buy some wrinkle cream instead!

    I have the curly hair as well, and also get my haircut about every 3 months! And I do like the Great Clips coupons.

    Curly hair here too. I do love Great Clips but I live somewhat far from one. Now I wait until the Supercuts up the street from me has a coupon or special. It's 11.98 but still saves me money. Smile

    I agree I don't see the point of expensive hair cuts.

    Stick straight hair - Great Clips. I think it's impossible to get a bad cut with my hair style, so I much prefer to go to somewhere like Great Clips. I could pay 10 times as much for the same thing, elsewhere.

    I am with you on the dye - pretty silver hair runs in my family though. (I don't have any grays yet so no final decision - well I have a few and it looks like I imherited the silver - phew!). I always thought I'd go gray early like my mom. I think I only perceived that because she was the only one not to dye her hair, so it seemed early. I am surprised how gray some of my friends are. I admit being that gray in my 30s might be a bit much. If I take after my mom, I should be pretty gray in a few years, but I might be more okay with it at 40. Ask me again in 5 years. Big Grin {I am also kind of over everyone assuming I am in college, so I don't think looking a little older is the worst thing. Looking young is fine outside of work but can be kind of mortfying as a professional}.

    I've had the same problem - when I was younger, it wasn't great professionally. But now that I'm 47, it's pretty obvious that I'm at least old enough to be an architect!

    I'm glad to see that there are lots of frugal-hair people here! Among my friends I'm nearly the only one (with the exception of my friend from New Zealand who is frugal about everything - and highly organized and practical and funny - I love her! She's a soulmate!).

    Well, unfortunately I have had some bad experiences at Pro Cuts and Great Clips, so I go to a salon. I have long, curly hair that I straighten. She charges me $30, but I only go a couple times a year. Maybe 3 at the most. When I used to go to Pro Cuts, they still charged me 29.95. I get charged the "long hair fee" since my hair is at my bra line. I don't do much color, but I'm in my early 30s....so its just not time yet. I also look for Groupons so I can get it cheaper.

    $30 is a good price for a haircut at a salon! I don't really understand the long hair fee - I've had that happen, too - but not sure that my very simple haircut is any harder than if it was a few inches shorter...

    I've pretty much stopped getting my hair cut. It is almost to my waist now and falls in pretty waves. I taught myself to cut bangs so if I want a slight change I'll do bangs. My ends are in great shape so until they split or frizz (unlikely since I don't use a hair dryer, curling iron, or product in my hair) I'll stay away from the salon.
