This post is part of a series based on Laine’s Home Economics: 50 Ways We Paid Off Our House on One Income. Previous posts in the series are listed on my Budget page. Laine is a Christian woman living with her family in California and living off one income. I first started following her via an email list about 7 or 8 years ago.
It’s a fact of life that people need haircuts. I cut my family’s hair, and I’ve tried cutting my own which was less successful. At this point, I’m happy to pay for a budget cut for myself and my 3 year old and do the rest of the family at home. If everyone in our family had their hair cut by a stylist, we would spend a minimum of $700 yearly.
For myself, I’ve been trying a local discount hair cutting place off and on this year. Great Clips charges $13 for a haircut with no wash or blow dry. If you want to pay less, you can prepay via a gift card bringing the cost of the cut down to $9.99. My first few haircuts at Great Clips didn’t go well, nor did a subsequent trip to my regular stylist. My first success happened the last time I went to Great Clips, and I hope to repeat that success next time.
How do you save money on haircuts for your family?
