    I used to trim my husband’s hair for him with the clippers but now he’s learned how to do it himself and does a fairly nice job.
    He has cowlicks and when his hair is more than 1/2 an inch long they show up and stick out so he usually trimmed once a month. If he leaves it too long then trims sometimes he gets white patches where the sun hasn’t seen his scalp which can look a bit odd at times. He’s not too fuzzy about his hair. It’s always super short.

    Like others have mentioned I go to the local Supercuts every few months.

    The price is different almost every time I go but I always give them $20.00.

    I think the stylists that know me punch in every discount/coupon they can find so they get to keep a little more for themselves.

    I use Supercuts too. With coupon 14.95 not including tip. Best cut I ever got. I cringe too at what I paid when working at salons

    I pay about $40 including tip. I am one who seldom gets a serious haircut; more often I'm getting a trim and having it shaped up a couple of times a year.

    Of course they're in it for the money, Keesh. That's the way they earn a living. Besides, many small salons are owned by the hair dresser, who has to pay rent, utilities, insurance, etc. It's like any other business, especially if you aren't working for a chain.

    Yes. I didn’t explain that well.
    What I mean is that many hairdressers don’t try and offer you a cut that you can manage well on your own. They give you a cut that needs maintaining every 6 to 8 weeks. Usually they like to add layers everywhere. Layered hair is difficult to self maintain since you’d have to trim the layers at the same place. Most people can’t do that so you go back and get new layers everywhere.

    My last hair dresser worked from home. When I made the appointment I told her that I didn’t want my hair washed and would wash it myself before I got there. I don’t like getting my hair washed by anyone else. All I wanted was an inch trimmed off the back of my hair. It was a super easy hair cut to give but she decided to add layers instead even though I’d told her I’d been patiently growing them out for two years . She didn’t care. She washed my hair with silicone filled shampoo, even though I didn’t want it. Gave me layers even though I didn’t want it and used the blow dryer when I’d asked her not to.

    ALL so she could charge me for a fancy ‘cut & blow dry,’ instead of the basic trim I wanted.
    That was the LAST TIME I went to a hairdresser. I paid a fortune to have someone do whatever they wanted with my hair.

    What I should have done is walked out but I didn’t want to appear rude.

    People in the business have told me this is often how they make their money.
    Many hairdressers view themselves as hairstyle artists and our hair is what they practice on.
    There are some nasty hairdressers out there who don’t like long hair.
    Ask anyone with long hair and you’ll find this to be true.

    So yes of course it’s a business but like any business, there can be much deception.

    Note: I would have paid full price just to have the basic trim I wanted instead of being tricked.

    It costs me nothing because I've been cutting my own to save money. You can get books on how to cut your own too or just kind of measure how much you want to cut off and then chop it off.

    The place I used to get my hair cut at charges around $20.00 now.

    she has yet to charge me for her services

    ...but she's only been doin' it for 50 years, so we'll see







    she also taught me the art of sitting still
