Expensive salon visits are not required to keep hair healthy and attractive.
In fact, many people are saying goodbye to their hairdressers and taking hair care into their own hands.
By reducing the cost of caring for hair, they have more money to spend on necessities.
Beautiful hair does not come with a particular price tag so learn the secrets to getting it inexpensively.
Saving Money at Hair Salons
By receiving salon treatments less frequently, people reduce their hairdressing costs. If a salon visit is necessary, opt for only the cut, saving the blow-drying for home. Some salon hairdressers freelance their services, cutting hair in their or your home for a lower charge.
Another option is to become a model for a hairdressing school or a trainee at a salon. A haircut will cost approximately £5 or may even be free. For a perm or coloring, expect to pay £15, which is still a very reasonable price.
Look for these deals in the local press and cut out ads that serve as vouchers, eliminating the booking fee. Make an appointment far in advance because bookings tend to fill up quickly. Allot sufficient time for services because students and trainees tend to take longer to do their work.
If all services desired cannot be performed during a single visit, schedule a follow-up appointment on the spot.
Saving Money on Grooming Supplies
When purchasing shampoo, buy the products representing the best value. A report from Which? revealed efficient cleaning by all shampoos tested but the least-expensive versions actually performed better than salon products. Purchasing shampoo in the high street will save money and supermarkets like Tesco and Asda offer the best prices.
If a special shampoo is necessary, shop online for deals that salons do not offer.
Some brands once exclusive to salons are now available in the high street. In addition to supermarkets and online retailers, look for chemists that offer these. If hair is reasonably healthy and a new colour is desired, dye it at home.
For less than £10, a new hue can be achieved. Compare this to £80 or more charged by a salon simply for highlighting.
People who keep their hair short, particularly boys and men, should spend £20 on clippers and bid farewell to the salon. This small investment pays for itself in two haircuts and lets an amateur hairdresser get creative.
Saving money does not need to require sacrificing on hair care so begin following these tips today.
