Prom Hairstyles: Prom Hairstyles for Less?

Have you even felt like being ripped by paying $45 for a trim. I always consider this is basically too much. That’s why I always think of ways how to keep low maintenance hairstyles.

I have friends even can tolerant to get their haircut once every 4 months with simple hairstyle.

Ladies, if you can't resist being a diva about the coif, just know that average prices will run you over $600 each year for highlights, cuts and product. There are several ways to chop your hair budget and still retain your chic, shaggy bangs.

Get a Student price

Students need practice before stepping into a salon as a certified stylist. While this may make you nervous, think about it for a minute — students will take the most care and time in giving you a great cut.

They are more willing to pay attention and focus than many stylists who've been in the business a long time.

Get trims from discount stylists

Before you snub your nose at Super Cuts, take note that even beauty magazine editors will visit the discount stylist between major style changes. As long as you have a good cut working already, ask for a "trim of the exact same style." They already have a good "map" to follow.

Preserve the quality and not quantity of your hair

Wash your hair every other day, even if you work out. Most shampoos have chemicals that strip many of your natural oils and leave your hair dry and brittle when used every day. Your hair doesn't need that much processing on a regular basis.

Choose styles that easily maintain

Short hair is cute, but cute costs. Longer styles don't need as much maintenance. Select a stylist who can give you a good cut that won't need a six-week check up. Go for mid- to long styles with layers.

Don't color your own hair

Those cheapy boxes at the drug store do occasionally fail to match the actual color to the box. You won't find out until the final rinse that Strawberry Fields was marked as Bold Brunette. Plus the chemicals are more abrasive than salon mixtures. If you need to splurge, do it on color, not the cut. Fixing a disaster will cost far more than a professional color job done correctly.

Seek samples of product

Just as at the doctor's office, you can score shampoo, conditioner, and gel products from salons and department stores. Ask around to find out what new products are being marketed to try a packet. Take one or two and be thankful, not a handful.

Buy product in bulk during sales

At the beginning of the school year and just before or after Christmas, the discounted shampoo/conditioners gift sets go on deep discount. Most sets also include a travel-sized hairspray or smoothing gel as a bonus.

Stock up during these key times of the year to get your favorite products at bargain prices.
