Yesterday I finally got my hair trimmed. It had only been a year! Haha. I went to a student salon and only paid $6.50 (with a $1 saving coupon!). The only draw back was the wait....other than that she did an AWESOME job. I highly recommend trying one out sometime.

Here are some that are in my area but many are also nationwide:

CLiC Salons -this is where I went, the I.T.S. Academy.

Toni and Guy

Paul Mitchell Schools

Okay, so you get the idea. My mom had a cut with lowlights and highlights last week for $35!! It looks great!!!! Grab the phone book and give it a chance. Loose some some money.

I will definitely go back again in a few months, but right now my plan is grow my hair a bit more. I'm planning on donating my hair to Pantene Beautiful Lengths. They only require 8 inches. Locks of Love requires 10 inches...meaning 4 to 5 more months of growing! Then I'll do something short with highlights or whatever.

Speaking of thrifty haircuts, we have also been clipping my husband and son's here at the house since they both wear it so short. That's been saving me about $20 a month for my husband and $15 every few months for my son....about $300 a year.

I love getting my hair done at the salon's just so relaxing! I think I read like 3 magazines while I am there...LOL LOL

I too was tired of paying over $100 for a haircut and I started going to The Hair Cuttery. It is not quite as cheap as the student salons....but I found a stylist I just love...and she does an awesome job!

Maybe one day I will try a student salon...I have a few friends that have gone and were very happy with the results! It took me so long to find a great stylist...that I am sticking to her! LOL

I envy you! I've lived here 7 years and still haven't found anyone I like (not no mention reasonable $$ wise). Guess only going once a year doesn't help, haha! I never found anyone in Oklahoma either and was there for 8years. I have bad luck I hair stylist "relationship" area of my life. :) Lucky me I have "easy" hair if I keep it long, it's naturally curly though and that's why I'm picky. I don't want to look like Carrot Top! Remember him? Haha.
