Girls Night Out at Hair Cuttery

What do you need for a great Girls Night Out?

How about ...
Let me tell ya, sometimes I REALLY love my life!!

Last week I attended a blog event sponsored by Hair Cuttery.  We were pampered and primped, and treated to a delicious dinner. (Try the bison burger!  You'll be glad you did!!)

My stylist, Pat, did a great job trimming up my layers.

If you are looking for a walk-in full service salon, I suggest you start with one of the 800 Hair Cutterys on the East Coast, in New England and the Chicago area. I found my local facilities to be clean, and the stylists friendly and knowledgeable.  They even have a coupon online that you can print and take with you to save money.

After getting all dolled up, I enjoyed sharing a meal with area bloggers.  I had a ton of fun swapping blog stories with women who understand why and what I do.

Thanks again to Hair Cuttery and Aigner Prensky for sponsoring a great Girls Night Out!

Sounds like a blast! Question for you. I just called Hair Cuttery here and it is $20-$28 for a hair cut depending on the amount of round brush I want to be styled. Great Clips is $14, and I think Super Cuts is around $12. Would you say Hair Cuttery is worth the $10 extra I would pay? Does it feel more like a nicer salon than the other chains?

Stephanie's Mommy Brain said...

Alicia, you ask a tough question. You know I am all about saving money but sometimes you get what you pay for. About a year ago I switched from the cheap walk-in salons to a more expensive full service spa. I just never left the cheap ones with a cut I liked. I found a girl at the spa who does a good job. And I've been satisfied with her. (Costs me $45 for a wash, cut and style)

I feel like Pat at Hair Cuttery gave me the best cut and style that I've had in a long time. I don't know if it was that the informal setting helped me connect with her better and express what I wanted better or if she just listened really well.

As for the feel of the place, my local H.C. is next door to a Shaw's Supermarket. It looked and felt like most walk-in places. I don't really base what I'm willing to pay on the feel of the place but instead on the quality of the cut and style. Super Cuts doesn't style you. They just cut and you leave with a damp head. So you are paying $15 more for the styling.

I guess my answer is - I don't know. I'm considering switching to Pat at Hair Cuttery and taking Ellie to her as well. It would be cheaper for me but a little more expensive from the kiddie place I take the Girlie.

If you haven't found a place or stylist you like then you could give it a try. I think they also do coloring and you were asking about that a few weeks ago.

I hope this helps. :)

How fun! Your hair looks so cute.

I've been having mine cut by a friend who's saving up to go to beauty school. It's cheap and she comes to my house. =)

Stephanie's Mommy Brain said...

Thanks, ladies!

*carrie*, if I had a friend that would come to my house I would absolutely have her cut my hair!
