Budget Savvy Snips: 7 Ways To Save On Hair Care

By Ryan Preston

Looking your best can sometimes get expensive. A trip to the salon for a cut and color can easily run you well over a hundred dollars, so if you go every few months, it can really add up. So, what are your options? You don’t want to try cutting your own hair of course, and not going at all isn’t an option either. Well luckily, you don’t have to resort to either of these in order to take care of your hair. Take a look at the 7 ways to save on hair care below. You might be surprised at just how easy it is to still get the great hair care you have come to love for less.

7 Ways to Save on Hair Care

1. Skip the styling

When you get your hair cut, skip the styling. Most salons will charge extra for a blow dry and style. Instead, tell your stylist to skip that step. If you’re just heading home after, it won’t matter if your hair is dried and styled or not.

2. Check out your local beauty college

Beauty colleges have students who need to perform so many hours of service. Therefore they offer an assortment of beauty services at a bargain. All students are closely supervised by a professional, so you will still get great service, just for less. Give your local beauty college a call and see what they offer.

3. Ask about a loyalty card

Some salons offer a punch card or loyalty program designed to save you money after you purchase a certain number of services. Ask your salon if they offer a program like this, or see if you can find a salon that does. This will certainly save you some cash if you are client that visits frequently.

4. Keep your eyes peeled for fundraisers

Local salons will often run specials where they offer clients discounted services in exchange for a donation to a local charity. Keep your eyes peeled for these events or ask your salon if they will be hosting any of these events so you can take advantage of them.

5. Follow them on Facebook

Many salons advertise their specials and sales via Facebook, so if your has a Facebook page, be sure you are following it for up to date information on all of the sales and specials.

6. Look for coupons

Just like you find coupons for soup and cereal, you can find them for hair care! Check your local paper, the back of your telephone directory, online websites, etc. for coupons valid at local salons. When new stylists start many of them circulate coupons, so make sure you snag them when you see them.

7. Go for Groupon

Groupon is a popular spot for local salons to offer specials. These specials can save you as much as 50% off of services. Check Groupon weekly to see what is being offered in your area. There always seems to be at least 2-3 salon offers on Groupon at a time, so it is a hot spot worth checking.

Want more tips? One final tip is to do your own color touch ups at home. Today’s kits are designed to be user friendly and provide professional results at a fraction of the price. Save even more when you take advantage of the Sunday newspaper or printable coupons for your favorite coloring brands and styling products.
