I get the girls’ hair cut once a year, and I always try to take them somewhere economical and with a coupon if at all possible. I found a coupon one day and loaded up. When we arrived the lady looked crosswise at my coupon then finally said, “Okay,” but she would only let me use it for one child. The coupon was for $2 off and the place was completely empty. With a “Thank you very much,” I loaded the kids back up and told them I’d find somewhere else to get their hair cut.
The very next day an advertisement arrived in the mail for $6.99 haircuts. Aha! I knew it would pay to wait. This was it! We all climbed back in the van. I typed the address into the GPS of my phone (which still excites me every time I do it) and off we went. The closer we got the more concerned I became. “Your arrival is on the right,” came the voice on my GPS. There was a run down strip mall with bars on the windows. I took one look at the excitement on my girls’ faces, and I knew I couldn’t put them off again. How bad could it be right?
“No credit cards,” said the sign when we walked in. Oh well, it was a good thing I had a little cash. The lady cutting Joy’s hair asked how she wanted it done. Joy said she wanted it to her chin, like she had it done last year. Before I could say anything the lady took the hair right in front, stretched it down, and whacked it off. “Like this?” What could we say then? I felt a little sick. All I could do was pray that it would look okay. Well, it’s shorter than we wanted, but she still looks cute!
Faith’s was a little shorter than we wanted too!
A different stylist did Grace’s and I thought she did a good job.
I cut Little Jason’s hair so I can’t complain!
When I went to pay they didn’t even charge me tax. That can’t be legal! Next year I think I’ll find a place on the beaten path, if I don’t decide to cut their hair myself!
I think all of them look adorable. And – it will always grow back 🙂
They are adorable 🙂 No worries, their hairstyles are all cute. I had a stylist do that with my hair once when I was younger and it took me 15 years to trust another hairstylist again lol! I had hair almost to my butt and she cut it way shorter then I expected. Everybody liked it, but I didn’t because it is not what I wanted lol!
I always spend more on hair. I would rather cut expenses in other places. (no pun intended 🙂 I think when my daughter is old enough for haircuts I will also spend more on them. For me I know I feel great when I have a good haircut and when I don’t I am waiting til I can get it cut again. Depending on your budget you could save $2.00 a week and then at the end of the year you would have 104 dollars to spend for the haircuts!
BY the way, I think all the cuts are very cute!

The look precious. Loved your post. This is the kind of thing I get myself into all the time. 🙂
Hey, I think they all turned out well – but then, I am a guy who cuts his own hair, so who am I to talk.
I think they’re really cute! I took our daughter to get her hair cut over Christmas (1st time!) and I was APPALLED at how much it cost!!!! I guess I should’ve asked first, I will next time! I mean, really, they don’t require much of a “do!”
I think you SHOULD cut the girl’s hair next time…. You did a great job on your son’s haircut!
They may have cut more hair off your girls than you had wished… Nevertheless, the girls still look as cute as can be.
I do think they look lovely but definitely understand your point. I prefer to cut my own hair rather than pay what I think are ridiculous amounts of money!:)

Haircuts are so expensive!! I’ve been doing it myself this year. Trial and error. Lots and lots of Error! Haha. But at least I don’t have to pay for it! Your kids haircuts look soooooo adorable!!!!! Even if it is a little short, I’d say it was worth every penny! =)
We love “First Choice” salons. They are reasonable to begin with, accept competitors coupons, honor their own coupons even if they expired and let you use one coupon per person by ringing up each cut individually. They also have a seven day guarantee. I’m able to budget salon cuts every so often to balance home touch ups & trims
i started to say they all look adorable and then saw everyone else said that. Anyway I like them and they will be cool and less trouble in the summer.
