In attempts to be frugal, I have found a salon in my very small town that only charges 6 bucks for a childs haircut. Not only am I saving 6 bucks from what I used to pay, but I am also saving the gas of driving all the way to the next town.
However the haircuts aren't that great. Not horrible, just not great.
This time, actually the 4 yo's bangs are not straight at all. And he wasn't moving all that much.
I know, it shouldn't even be a question, I should want them to look their best, but they are only 2 and 4..... 24 bucks for them both to get a haircut is just not that reasonable to me. (and that doesn't include tip)
Am I being just really really cheap?

I wouldn't beat yourself up over it. I mean only you know what is feasible for you and everyone is experiencing tough times right now; sometimes you gotta do whata you gotta do. And they are 2 & 4, there isn't really any peer influence or teasing about that kind of stuff at those ages. Also, 6 bucks or not I would nicely point out whatever mistake was made to the stylist. They came up with the price, not you; they need to do thier job correctly regardless of price. Even though, yeah, I know you get what you pay for, but crooked bangs is a bit much, JMO, though. You do what you can when you can. When you can splurge for the better salon great in the meantime, its $6 haircuts I'm just glad you found a deal. I pay $12 and thier not always fabulous cuts.
