Back to School haircuts for kids can get outta control expensive.
One time we took our son to get a simple “trim” and it cost over $30.
I realize he has curly hair, and that a professional’s time is worth money, but all I could truly think was… this is gonna be all grown out in about 2 weeks flat and we could’ve bought something that would’ve lasted a little longer than that with the $30 instead.
Since it’s back to school time again, and I’m sure you’re looking everywhere to cut costs. I am too! After all, things really add up over time.
With all the things you have to buy for back to school, saving money on a haircut will really give you a sense of relief!
You may be paying for clothing and new shoes, but your kid’s hair will be looking great for less!
Here’s how to save money on back to school haircuts for kids!
Coupons are one of my favorite things in the world!
Those little pieces of paper are one of the reasons I’ve been able to save as much money as I have.
Many people think they are a waste of time. I feel bad for those people.
While coupons might take a little bit of work, they are one of the primary ways to save yourself some cash. And what’s better than that?
Around the end of Summer and the beginning of the back to school season, hairdressers start to send out coupons.
You’ve probably seen them around. Often times they will come in the mail as circulars. Most people will throw them away without a second look.
But honestly, if your kids are going to get a haircut anyway, then why not save money on them?
It just makes good sense to spend a minute of your day cutting out a coupon so that you can save some bucks at the salon.
Because remember: every cent adds up!
Do It Yourself
Have you (or your spouse) invested in a hair trimmer?
If you’re ok with the all over buzz cut look, you could do an all over cut.
You can also get a small pair of hairdressers scissors and trim the ends yourself.
