As most of you know, Ed and I are a little "spend-thrifty". We both get this from our parents, and for the most part, it has served us well. BUT, sometimes saving a couple bucks doesn't exactly work out for you. I give you our latest example:
I received this horrible haircut the other day for the bargain price of $7.99. We received two $7.99 coupons in the mail for Great Clips and thought since we were both in need of a haircut, we would head over to the local shop for a cut. Now, I have had my haircut at one of these places before and been pleased with it, so I'm not totally down on the Bargain Salon. But I guess I should have figured that my number was up. I told the woman (who was very nice and we even had a great conversation while she cut my hair) that I wanted my hair to rest on my shoulders when dry and that it needed a little bit of layering cut into it since it is naturally curly. There was obviously a little communication breakdown somewhere along the line because she totally chopped my hair. I can barely get it back to stick some clips in it, which is what I am now doing on a daily basis to avoid looking like Orphan Annie. Here is how I wore it yesterday:
Ed was very pleased with his $7.99 haircut. But he also just had her buzz it with the same number guard all over - not too much room for error!
So, will I ever go back to one of these places again? Well, of course I will because I couldn't bear to pay $30-$50 for a haircut when I know there's a coupon in the drawer for $7.99! :)
