I cut my own hair (haven't been to a beauty parlor since August 2011) and have nothing but compliments when I do. I can't say whether the remarks are sincere or if my hair is so ugly, people are over-compensating. All I can say is that I am certainly not going to be in any beauty contests and if I make a boo-boo, it will grow out in a few weeks. I have wavy hair, too.

A hairdresser who gives you exactly what you ask for, is worth their weight in gold. They are not all created equal.My 25 yo granddaughter spends $100 + each time she go’s to the hairdresser and IMO she has
nice hair without getting highlights and all the other extras
$40 for a haircut? Are the scissors made of gold or something?I live in a moderately sized city of approx. 150,000 in eastern Texas. For the past ten years or so I have had a standing appointment every 4 weeks for a hair cut and blow dry (same stylist). Cost is $40 plus I give a tip. At my last visit the stylist mentioned his next appointment that day was a lady who drove all the way from Houston (about 4 hours). He said he charged her $110 for cut, highlighting and blow dry. She was paying $250 for the same in Houston!
Christ on a cracker! I'll shave my own head bald before I'll pay $40 for a haircut.
mine actually didn't come out too bad.Actually that is less than the usual going rate around here unless you go to Great Clips or something like that. I just budget for it every month and go on with it. I hate fooling with my hair and I don't date try to cut it myself for fear it might turn out like this:

Ours have been open for about a month, but I'm still not comfortable with going. Think I'll wait a bit longer.Our hair salons are still closed. I really need to get my hair cut, but I'm not sure I'd feel safe enough to go even if they were open. So I guess I'll just have to be shaggy for a while.
