Getting a haircut is sort of like a small luxury. Sitting back and letting someone tend to you for a little while is nice, and you always (let’s hope…) look and feel better after. And speaking about luxury- how about the price? A good haircut can seriously eat into your budget! The good news is that it doesn’t have to. You can stay well-groomed and it doesn’t have to cost you too much. Read on for some tricks to help you save money on haircuts.

  1. Get a student. Go to your local beauty school and have a student give you a haircut. Don’t be nervous- the students are well supervised and you’ll save a lot. You may even score a free haircut!
  2. Social media. Follow salons in your area so you’ll always know about promotions and specials.
  3. Discount sites. Check for coupons on discount sites like Groupon.
  4. Service swaps. Do you know someone who can cut hair? Try swapping a haircut for a batch of your famous chocolate chip cookies.
  5. Go for a longer style. Maintenance is still important to keep long hair looking healthy, but you can go a longer time between trims, which is a savings.
  6. Donate. Many salons will give you a free haircut when you donate your hair to Locks of Love or other organizations. There are guidelines for lengths and other considerations so check with your local salons.
  7. Be a hair model. Model in ads for a salon in exchange for a free haircut.
  8. Just the cut. Skip the shampoo and blow-dry, and save.
  9. Walk-in salons. These are generally less expensive than more upscale salons where you need an appointment.
  10. Haircuts at home. Find a stylist who’s willing to come to your home. Lots of stylists like to work this way because they get to keep whatever you pay them, instead of sharing a percentage with the salon. You’ll also save on transportation costs.

You don’t have to deny yourself a little pampering and glamming just because you’re trying to save money. You just need to find a cheaper way to do it!
