Great Hair on a Budget - The Haircut

Guest Author - Lynne Chapman

So you don't have a ton of money to spend on your hair but you still have to look up-to-date and neat for work - or school? There are ways to save money on quality haircare and come out with great looking hair.

Best hair style on a tight budget.
Keep it Simple: First, it is best to stick to simple hairstyles. A style that has very little layering or is one-length, such as a Bob, is always very stylish and will keep its shape as it grows, making frequent trims unnecessary. Start with a chin-length bob, with no bangs. This style can grow and grow, and still look good when it has grown to your shoulders. This means about six months between haircuts!

Simple styling: Avoid over-use of heat styling. A Bob or Page Boy usually does not require a lot of styling with a curling iron, so your hairstyle stays in better condition, meaning fewer split ends and longer between necessary trims.

Budget salon: To save money you may want to take a chance on a budget salon where many of the stylists may be new to the profession. Although intricate tapering and blending can improve the appearance of a Bob, it is not necessary. Your style can be a simple blunt cut making it possible for even the most inexperienced hairstylist to cut it.
Here’s a tip. If your hairdresser doesn’t ask you to first, tip your head down, chin to chest. Then ask your hairdresser to trim off any stay hairs that appear at the nape area. This will improve the wear-ability of your Bob and lengthen the time that it will keep its shape.

Opt for less service: When you make the appointment, ask the receptionist or your hairdresser if you can receive a ‘hair cut only’ for a cheaper price. You receive a shampoo and hair cut, leaving the salon with wet hair. You will have to go home and blow dry and style your own hair but it can be worth it for the savings.
    Trim your own bangs: If you prefer to wear bangs with your style, they will need trimmed in about four to six weeks. If you are very careful,and use the sharpest shears you can find, you can do this yourself.
  1. Part off the bang section, being careful not to include any hair that doesn’t belong.
  2. Pull the entire section to a point in the center of your forehead.
  3. Trim a small amount off of that point – less than you think you need.
    Point your shears up and cut up into the bangs instead of cutting them straight off. The cuts will look like this; ^^^^^^ instead of this ----------.
