    @Mrstidwell:  I don’t think I would risk going to a new stylist for a cut and color, so I wouldn’t use the gift certificate. I would use it if it were for a shampoo and blow dry- no permanent damage done if I didn’t like the results.

    @Mrstidwell:  If they are all part of your clientele and you charge them a substantial amount for a color/cut then I think it’s a great gift! If you normally give them a pretty big discount (~50% or less of salon price) some of them may see it as cheap and/or thoughtless. I personally would be excited to receive this gift if I otherwise trusted you with my hair!

    Honestly, I’d prefer a cut and blow dry/style certificate rather than color.

    I definitely would like that gift – as long as I lived in town!

    @CityBearBride:  +1 If not everyone colors their hair, I would give them the option for a blow out/style !

    @Mrstidwell:  i think its a great idea if you already cut/colour their hair. one of my friends cuts and colours my hair and i would love her to give me a free cut/colour as a gift. However, I would only give this gift if you already regularly do their hair… personally im quite fussy with who cuts/colours my hair and wouldnt want to offend you by saying no thank you or not using the gift certificate.

    @Mrstidwell:  I have to admit, I’m a bit skittish with who does my hair. And I can’t color it… I’m Asian with a very strong black color, in order to color my hair I first have to bleach it and I’m not willing to do that.

    However, you haven’t given us any details on your BM’s, MOH’s hair so I don’t know how receptive they would be to it. If I was someone who needed my hair dyed/updated regularly, I would be excited about this. However, through my own ‘filter’ because of my hair type, I’m not.

    @Mrstidwell:  If you regularly cut and color their hair, I’d say that’s a pretty cool/generous gift! 🙂
