    @iarebridezilla:  I’m sure it’s beautiful! I wish my hair was more manageable. I guess we always want what we don’t have 🙂

    I get my hair cut at a real, honest to goodness, old fashioned barber shop, by an old man from Italy.  It costs $17, and I usually pay him $20; $25 if business is good at the time. This is what everyone should do.  I tried all the high end places in town, in an effort to find the best haircut and shave in Vancouver befre my wedding.  I went to all the places with the amazing online reviews, and most of them screwed up my hair.  I’ve always come back this place that’s pulled straight out of 1950.  Got my haircut there for my wedding, including going back for a shave, and to get it combed perfectly, the morning of.  Can’t complain:

    iarebridezilla:  My girl charges me $15. And I live in NY!!! I pay more in gas to get to her place. You’re exactly right, she doesn’t offer her snooty opinions. We talk about her kid and weight watchers and wedding stuff and off I go.

    I’ve had good and bad from all sorts of price points. Right now I pay $12 for a haircut(and $5 for a tip!) so I set aside $20 a month for that. SO dyes my hair for me and he’s very good at it! 🙂 He likes making small talk and asking “how’s the family” to give me the -real- experience of having my own hairdresser.

    I’ve had $$$ salons charge me crazy heaps of money for a color they promised would turn out okay. I ended up with the -exact- same hair color as before…literally no change. They swore up and down it was different but it looked like clear filler to me.

    I’ve had $ salons argue with me over color. Once the color was perfect, absolutely perfect. They didn’t color the underside of my hair…oops. So, they supposedly redyed it the same color, but it came out an entirely different shade…not even close(first try was a very warm hued red, second try was a burgundy, cool toned…almost straight purple looking color)

    Asking to cut off “1/8th of an inch” at salons was always fun. Some knew what to do, others asked “you want half an inch, then?” so I’d end up with more hair cut off.

    Finally, one bossy salon comes to mind. I’d ask for very simple things…a bob, a chil length bob. Somehow I’d end up with “their” vision and look like Shirley Temple! I stopped going.

    So for now, I’m happy paying $12 for a “low end” haircut. They listen to me, they don’t pressure me and they cut hair pretty well.

    I used to go to a really pricy (at least I thought so) salon. Like $250 and up for a cut and color. I went because my mom had gone to the same gal for years and she always did a fabulous job, so I went to her too. When I moved I got quite a few cheapo haircuts that looked aweful, and a few amazing ones. I ended up finding a girl that always did a fantastic job. The cut and color was always exactly what I wanted and looked great. She charged about $80-$100 depending on the colors and a simple haircut was like $30. Since moving to hawaii I have gotten one haircut that was aweful, and the girl fried my hair with the highlights. So im trying really really hard to let it grow a little before going back and getting all over color and a cut. I was trying to grow out my hair for thr wedding, but its only to my collarbones and the wedding is in August, so I dont think im going to get a whole lotta length by then.   I think it is pretty hit and miss with chain salons like that. But the best haircut I had gotten recently other than the onr girl I loved was actually at a walmart salon. My mom was grabbing groceries and I was like um..im gonna get my hair cut while were here! Lol

    I go to a cheapo salon and I love it. I pay $12 to have her cut my hair and she does an awesome job, my hair always grows so fast when she cuts it. I’ve gone to a more expensive salon and the person did a great job too but I figure if I can get the same thing at my regular cheapo spot then why not

    AnneTossy:  Wow! You must have been that stylist’s first customer. It was good you were able to get it fixed without a major chop.

    iarebridezilla:  My grandmother has been cutting hair for 50 years, and it great at it. She works at a small name salon now, but she’s also worked at places like HairCuttery before. They’re not all beauty school rejects (though some are, and some are new to the field). That being said, for a small trim I will go to a HairCuttery or something along those lines. If I’m getting my hair cut into a pixi cut (like in a few weeks), I will only go to her (she’s about 2 hours away).

    $16 for- GASP- a student from the local beauty school.  And I have to say, they do a pretty damn good job.  Sure, it takes a little longer, but I always know that they put a lot of effort into it.

    I chopped off my hair for a pixie (loved it!) and am now growing it back out. That being said, my stylist at home, who is a wonderful lady, tends to cut my hair the same each time – no flair at all. I finally got bored of paying $40 for basically a trim. I finally gave up and went to the local salon school here in Madison and the girl who’s doing it now is seriously a pro. She’s fantastic. She took my weird mullet thing and whipped it into a slanty bob thing that is just sassy and I love it. Plus side? Costs $15 with the tip, though I keep progressively tipping more each time…they also have a natural hair care line, and the shampoo/conditioner she recommended, though moderately expensive, have really helped my scalp issues – and it smells like rosemary, which is also fantastic. 

    Really, it’s not the price of the service that really matters – it’s the relationship between the stylist and you, and how well you understand each other.

    My hair is long, thick, curly, and hard to cut. I’ve gone to the cheaper salons before and I have regretted it every single time. I pay about $45 for a salon cut where “cheap” places charge me between $17-$25 because of the length and thickness of my hair. I might as well pay a little bit more for piece of mind.

    I’m happy to go anywhere where I receive a nice/perfect haircut, but I do love the experience I get at an upscale salon.

    Currently, I go to an upscale salon because I adore the experience, their hair products, the haircuts etc.

    I cut it myself, but I don’t do anything crazy, just simple layering and side bangs. My grandmother was a hair stylist and she taught me the basics. I also cut my moms, brothers and fiances hair.

    I went to a few salons and those were my worst experiances, EVER. My hair was about mid back, and I asked for about 3 inches to come out, she somehow messed up and it ended up having to be taken in below my EARS. NO NO NO. I have a chubby face, that is NOT a good look for me. I’m terrified of anyone touching my hair now.

    iarebridezilla:  Before we moved to a tiny little town in rural Ohio, I got my hair cut at a high end salon where it would cost around $40-50. I kept my hair shorter back then, and because it’s so thick, that meant more than just cutting the ends. I would get it thinned out, razored, layered, and highlighted/colored when I needed it.

    Now that we live in tiny town USA, I go to a locally owned shop that costs $20. I keep my hair long now with a few long layers- pretty low maintenance. And I don’t color it anymore. Though, I think I might get some ombre/balayge put in before the wedding to give it a little sumptin’ sumptin’
