Great Clips for ~$15. Before I moved, it was a small mom and pop called Tyler’s for ~$7. I miss my cheap hair cuts.

I get my haircut at my friend Pamela’s house and in exchange I groom her dog so it doesn’t cost me anything! My husband usually goes to Superclips or one of those chains on his way home from work.. I think it costs him $12.

I get my hair cut across the street from my house at a beauty school. I think it costs me maybe $10? And that’s including a $3 or $4 tip. My husband goes to supercuts though, and I think it normally costs him around $15.

I go to Supercuts, too, and usually get my hair cut and eyebrows waxed at the same time, which ends up costing me about $25 including tip, as long as I remember to bring a coupon from the newspaper.

I get my haircut at Beauty Bar $35 including tip; I try to hold out for every 8 weeks.
My little man gets his haircut by yours truly for free…right now he is sporting the fohawk; easy to do and the ladies love it.

I always did trade for my hair color but the hair cuts always came out bad so I hit up Hair Cuttery or Super Cuts & paid $16+tip. It takes about 5 minutes to cut my hair & they always rock it compared to the swanky salons.

I cut my own hair for free 99!

For $11 at the Barber Shop

Hair It Is…costs about about $20 tip included.

However, I used to go to a great barber shop that was $27 tip included for a cut, 15 min. shoulder massage, hot towel neck shave, and eyebrows cleaned up! I just can’t fit them into my schedule anymore…

I get my hair cut at Zoe’s salon. She cuts my hair, eyebrows, and trims my beard for $24.00. We also have some good conversation about whatever book we are currently reading.

21 Jake May 24, 2011 at 10:10 am

I do both Supercuts and a home based solution. SC is about $15 here, so I only go once in a while to get spruced up. Haha!

22 Rachel May 24, 2011 at 10:28 am

I get my hair cut wherever I can get in for an appointment on the day I decide I need one. :-) (It’s pretty sporadic) However, I have 3 little girls who go for regular haircuts – ALWAYS at Supercuts. $20.00 a cut x 3 x 3.5 times a year….

Reply

23 Sue May 24, 2011 at 10:39 am

I don’t get my hair cut very often, I like long hair, but I do have my sister regularly trim it to keep it from getting split ends. But my husband regularly goes for a haircut at a local barber shop and pays around $10 per haircut plus tip.

I get my haircut at Supercuts! $15.99, usually before a $1 off coupon.

$50 + tip. PLUS I moved recently so now to go back to my girl I drive 5 hours. I’m a stylist too, so I’be been doing dome upkeep myself.

My hair is too edgy to just let anyone hack on it.

33 Casey May 24, 2011 at 11:46 am

I pay waaaay too much – used to be $60 plus tip at a salon near my work, but my girl got promoted and is now $85. I started going there on the recommendation of a co-worker, but it has gotten pricey!

35 retirebyforty May 24, 2011 at 12:42 pm

I tried a bunch of places
Great clips when I have coupons – $11-12
bishop – come with free beer… $25
I even tried a student barber for $5. The gal said “this is my first time cutting a guy’s hair.” And I thought OHHH S***…, but I made a mistake of sitting down… :(

Now I stick with Great clips… I can’t get a great hair cut even at the expensive places…

Two thirds of the year it costs me $17 at a local barber shop. The summer months cost me nothing as my wife chops it down to 1/2 inch all round.

Once or twice a year, a salon at $60. bucks or so. Inbetween, supercuts or topcuts – $25.

I get my hair cut at a barber shop I saw when I was going to the library (it’s next door). Since there were two women working there, I went in. The window displayed $7 haircuts & I pay $12 because I get a styled cut (woman here….no buzz cut for me please). She’s great & listens to what I ask for.

I go to Hair Cuttery about every 2 weeks or so and w/ tip and cut it comes out to about 20 bones. or $16.oo just for the cut….. But the I’ve been useing the same woman now for yrs and she is outstanding, I’d have to follow her to another shop if she left this one or wait till I go bald what ever comes first :-)

Cost Cutters or Great Clips, whichever one I find first. Costs between 13.95 and 15, depending on deals. Once I got charged only $4.95 the cost of a beard trim because it didn’t take her very long. It would be a lot cheaper if I could get an even cut by myself…

Reply

62 Angie May 24, 2011 at 10:12 pm

I get my hair cut at either Great Clips or Sports Cuts, depending on if there is a sale at one or the other. I pay $15 max (plus tip), and I get my hair cut 2-3 times per year.

On a side note, I just finished giving my son his first ‘hawk of summer. My hands are still vibrating from the clippers!

63 Lisa May 24, 2011 at 11:39 pm

Welp, the last time I got my hair cut I was at some place in Long Beach (a salon- $50)…but the time before that I actually did get my hair at Super Cuts ($20!)

Because DS had a super issue with cutting his hair, it was a nightmare. We use to take him to JustKidsCuts; they did a great job with children on the spectrum, but it cost $22! Now the woman who threads my eyebrows does it for $17, not including tip. I have brought him to supercuts a time or two as well. I keep my hair long, so I don’t cut it.

Thanks J money! How did you know that the kids and I needed a hair it?

66 Cat May 25, 2011 at 9:32 am

Last 2 times I cut my hair I did it myself. Bangs are easy, and since I have big wavy hair you can’t really tell if it’s not straight if I just snip away at the ends. -Thats free!!

But if I’m going for a style I’ll go to Online Hair Design and it’s usually about $30

Reply

67 Kelli May 25, 2011 at 10:22 am

I get my hair cut at Juut Salon (used to be called Aveda) in MN. The cut costs me $50 (and my stylist is one of the medium-priced ones there!). However, I only get my hair cut about 3 times a year, and my stylist does a pretty good job. I’ve tried convincing my husband to cut my hair, but he refuses to do it because he’s afraid he’ll screw up and I’ll have a fit, which I wouldn’t. I always cut his hair, so we save money there.

68 Taylor in TX May 25, 2011 at 11:32 am

I go to Super Cuts and my haircut with tip is just under $22. I cut my boyfriend’s hair (with clippers, No. 1 guard), which is free! (and fun.)

I get my hair cut at Hair Cuttery (aren’t they a close rival to Supercuts?). I usually decide on the spur of the moment or when I’m driving by that I’ll go get a cut – no blow drying to save on $$. Typically it’s when my hair, which is just past shoulder length, is looking scrappy. The cost is $15 + tip, which is pretty good considering I live in South Florida. Results are varied though, so I know, that I might need to do a little bit of minor work at home afterwards!

I was going to a salon and it cost about $30 for a haircut, shampoo, and style. It’s a bit more than I like to pay but you get a scalp massage, plus they give you a drink (coffee, tea, water, pop, etc.) so it’s worth it.

Reply

74 Gretchen May 25, 2011 at 10:07 pm

Ok, looks like I’m the only reader who spends a little more money on my hair! I go to a salon in my hometown, which is about an hour drive from where I live. my parents still live there, so i get to see them too. and I spend $80 on a cut and color. sometimes it might be a little more depending on how much hair she cuts. I have been going to the same hairdresser since i was 2 (first haircut, seriously). I have friends who easily spend $250+ on their hair, so i figured $80 was pretty good. I only get my hair cut two or three times per year. to me, its worth it.
p.s. I cut my husband’s hair, so that balances out the cost, right?

Normally $40 ever six months. Have not cut hair in forever. Just broke up with my bf so ..yep…it is that time again to CUT ALL THE HAIR OFF! Isn’t that what us ladies do sometimes. So I would totally love a free hair cut! ;)

77 Matthew owcarz May 26, 2011 at 2:52 pm

Supecuts. 13$ for the hair. $6 for the beard and I usually throw 2$ or 3$ for a tip. Unless they dont charge me for the beard then they get 20$ flat.

Reply

78 Bonnie May 27, 2011 at 9:08 pm

Elements Salon for $60(?). I usually get a cut and highlights every 3 months, so I’m not sure what the cut alone would cost. I’m entering this giveaway for my husband though, who spends about $25 w/ tip at Supercuts (we live in an extremely HCOL city).
@Gretchen – $80 for cut AND color is pretty cheap at a salon, so you’re definitely not spending a ton IMO.

I get my hair cut at Beehive Salon. I always get it colored too, so I don’t know how much just a haircut costs – I think around $40. My husband is the sexy budget follower in our family and he’s Supercuts all the way! It’s right around the corner from our house.
