With the economy being what it is at the present time, we all need to find ways to save money as often as possible. Yet, men want to look good just as much as women do. This often means going to a hair salon for a cut and style. This can be expensive, but there are a few ways to save money at the hair salon.
One way is to limit trips. This may mean wearing hair a little longer than normal because shorter hair grows faster and requires more frequent cutting and/or trimming to maintain a particular style. Or, one could go the other way and wear the hair extremely short. Having the hair almost shaved leaves it a lot more room for growth without having to be concerned about difficulties styling the hair.
Avoid coloring the hair. A little bit of gray tends to give a man character. If there is a need to change the color, use a preparation that can be bought and used at home. Home coloring kits come with very clear instructions and are nearly foolproof. You may even have a female friend over to assist.
Whatever length the hair is worn at, choose a style that complements your facial features and is easy to maintain at home. Men’s hairstyles are normally pretty simple to maintain, but there are a few that almost require a trip to the salon just to get the hair back in position after a shower or a swim. Avoiding these complicated styles will make it easier to take care of the hair at home and avoid having to visit the salon.
Shop around for prices. There are usually more than one hair salon in any given town or city. Compare prices from three or four different ones and go where you can get the best deal. If you are wearing a relatively simple hair style, there is no reason to pay twice the price to get it cared for.
