Saving Money on Haircuts


Saving money on haircuts is important to me as another way to continue to control the flow of money coming from our household.  Because of that, we usually get our hair cut at Great Clips for $12.00 each. As a result of being a regular customer there, every so often they will send us  postcard/coupon in the mail to get a haircut for $6.99. I was thrilled when I opened the mailbox earlier this month and found one in that day's mail. 

The other day my daughter bought a bag of beef jerky during her lunchtime at school. She noticed a coupon attached to the bag from Great Clips for $3.00 off a haircut. She immediately took this coupon off the package and brought it home to me. It was a proud moment for me when I realized that some of my thrifty ways have rubbed off on her.

We both have short hair cuts and normally get our hair trimmed every 6 to 8 weeks. This ends up costing us close to $30 with tax and tip. Last time we had our hair trimmed, which was about 2 weeks ago, I went armed with both of my coupons. We ended up paying $18 instead of the usually $30.  I was thrilled with the fact that we both had haircuts for under $20.

So, one way to save money on haircuts is to get your hair trimmed at one of the salon chain stores like Great Clips and sign up for their email list, so you can get money saving coupons in the mail. Also, be sure to look on all of your food packages to see if there are any money saving coupons on there as well. 

Great Clips also has a promotion going on their website right now where you can win free haircuts for one year. Be sure to sign up for this promotion here

Other ways to save money on haircuts include waiting a longer amount of time between trims and cutting your hair at home. 

What are some of the ways you save money on haircuts?

  1. I've trimmed my own hair -- a bit hard to do the back, but still doable, with thick and wavy hair (hides my mistakes). I've had other family members trim just the ends. And of course, I wait until I get a coupon, sometimes that's 2-3 months. I think if you find a simple style then you can have just about any salon trim it without being disappointed.

    1. I think so too, Lili. I know some people do not like the chain salons, but I've been satisfied with them. If I lived closer to my sister i would ask her to trim it, but she is too far away at 600 miles to save me any money. lol
