2. Be a model for a hairdressing school

There are dozens of hairdressing schools that regularly seek models to train students . The principle is simple: quasi-professionals get their hands dirty and the service is at a reduced price, or even free in some cases. And no risk of ending up with the ball at zero because the trainers are never far away to help and advise.

3. Apply for a loyalty card

Here's a benefit that's often overlooked! And yet, the loyalty card at the hairdresser is more than interesting. After a certain number of visits, it is possible to benefit from a reduction or a treatment offered . There are no more excuses for leaving it lying around at the bottom of your wallet!

4. Refuse to do additional care

It's happened to all of us: we accept a hair care at the ferry and arrived at the time to pay, it's a surprise! The bill is more inflated than we thought. To save a few tens of euros, we do not hesitate to say no. And this despite the 'Are you sure? Your hair could do with it!' of the hairdresser.

5. Go to a low-cost hair salon

They are called Tchip, Vog, Self Coiff or Fun Look and they offer unbeatable prices. Contrary to what one might think, going to a low-cost hair salon does not mean going out with a bad haircut. The low prices are often explained by the absence of advice, the location or even the reception without an appointment. Best to go there for simple services as to cut its tips and keep important hair transformations for experts in the field (colorist, hairdresser, hairdresser, etc.).

6. Make the right cut choice

Some haircuts require more maintenance than others. In order not to return to the hairdresser every four mornings, we bet on a haircut where regrowth is not bothersome , nor binding. And you also need a good home maintenance to return to the hairdresser as little as possible!

7. Ask for a dry cut

No more shampoo and unnecessary care, we move on to dry cutting! The idea? Pay only the cut and nothing else. This is by far the best option for wavy or curly hair . This way the hairstylist can see how the hair sits during the cut and adapt.

8. Opt for a hairdresser at home

One of the ways to reduce your hairdressing budget is to call on a hairdresser at home. Especially since since the health crisis, the number of professionals who have set up on their own has exploded. It usually comes back 30% cheaper than in salon since there are no fixed costs. Besides being economical, it's a faster and more convenient solution!
