went to get my hair cut at supercuts and about went into shock at the price

I have never used super cuts before and always assumed them to be on the cheap side. I got my hair shampooed, cut, and styled. It came to 51.25! That is what i pay at the higher end salons i go to sometimes. She assured me that the price was right. I paid, unwillingly but i did ask her for my receipt that she wasn't going to give to me.

Looking over the receipt she charged me 20.00 just to style my hair; 14.00 to shampoo my hair and 15.00 to cut it. She charged me extra to style it  because i had long hair, but when i got it cut it was no longer long. So she wasn't styling long hair, she was styling short hair, but apparently that is not how they see it.

Does that make sense? I mean charging extra to style long hair when i cut it all off? I started with long hair (down the middle of my back) and once it was cut it was to my chin almost. Not what i consider long.

You should call and speak with a manager, that doesn't sound right.

Oh wow! That seems kinda ridiculous! I would go to their website, and see if they have a "contact us" section! I would raise hell! That's more than a bottle of salon shampoo!


I'd be maaaaaaaaaaaad..

I know. I went there, because i didn't want to pay that much. I'm just not understanding their charge on styling. Its like a rip off almost.

I did look at the price. I said she charged me styling of long hair. On the price it has a * and says more for long hair. I was getting it cut short, i didn't think i would be charged so i never asked how much. I didn't know they base their pricing on what you come in the salon with.

no shes wrong!! shampoo is 3 dollars and i have long hair also and it is thick and curly and i get my hair cut and styled with is straightened and blow dried and i dont pay more than 40 bucks with all that and i think thats including tip all supercuts are independently owned so she was either working on commission or the salon is a ripoff they tried to charge me 98 dollars for highlights once i laughed and walked out if i were you i would complain

My mom was a hair dresser up until about 3 years ago.

Do you know what she charged to cut, wash and style? $7.00

Just a cut was $5 and perms and colors were $25.

 

no wonder all her customers were sad when she quit. lol

I would call them tomorrow and ask how much they charge.  Tell them you have long hair and ask them what they would charge.  See if it matches.  If not, call them out on it.

it's not having what you want....it's wanting what you've got.
