12 Ways To Save Money Getting A Haircut


I think that most people have either a love-hate or hate-hate relationship with their hair. It’s certainly one of personal hygiene habit that most people take extremely seriously (and there are a lot of hair myths that cost us all a fortune and hair can teach us a lot about personal finance). A hairstyle is one of those things that we can control that gives a first impression about ourselves. The problem, of course, is getting that perfect cut (or even one that is acceptable) is expensive and can be downright wallet emptying to keep it that way on a regular basis. That being said, there are a number of ways to save money when getting a haircut. Here are some options:

    This is a great blog. I actually cut my son’t hair myself. He hated to go to barber since he was a little boy, he could not stay too long in the chair to have his hair cut. So I had to cut his hair initially. Now I am interested in designing his hair sometime, but not always up to his taste.

    There are some things I’ve learned not to be too frugal about. Haircuts are one of them! That being said my lady only charges me $20 for wash, cut and blow dry. I think my hubby would give up eating for a few days just to allow me to get my hair done every 6 weeks but that is another story. I lived through the years of cutting it myself or having my mom cut it for me. I’ve gone to the cheap cutters and when I came home, I combed it and asked hubby how I looked and his thought was I needed a haircut she had done such a bad job. The savings is; you get what you pay for.

    I live in chronic pain, but my haircut gives me a little while of feeling good and feeling like I give the outward appearance of looking good as well. The hardest part for me is winters can get rough here and at times I can’t get out for weeks on end so haircuts go by the wayside. After several months it is so good to go and feel like I look good again.

    Hubby chops his own hair and I give it a decent cut about once a year, so we save that way. I buy cheap shampoo and was given two expensive bottles to review, so that is a savings as well.

    I think these are some great ideas. I have been cutting my own hair for a few years now. The savings makes me feel good. There are lots of how to videos on learning how to cut your hair. I watched and learned, and now I save.

    I’ve been cutting my own hair since junior high! I can’t believe some of my friends pay $30-$40 for a hair cut.

    I’m not so sure I’d be able to cut my own hair if I was a lady though.

    Under shave it off…
    “Of course, this type of haircut won’t look good on anyone, so you’ll have to decide if it’s really for you. ”

    I think you might want to change “anyone” to “everyone” or “just anyone” to make your point clear. Unless of course you mean it never looks good, which is a distinct possibility. Thanks for the article though!
