Guest Post: Great Hair, Great Price
I love getting my haircut, if it wouldn’t mean ending up bald I would get my haircut every week. This statement is probably leading you to believe that I like to change up my style, as much as I wish that was true it’s not. The reality is I love the pampering feeling of getting my hair washed and my scalp massaged. There is something so relaxing about walking into a nice salon, getting handed a beverage and reading a magazine in mood lighting with soft music in the background. Then of course I love the fact that I walk out an hour later looking great without having lifted a finger. It is peaceful, restorative magic to me. The only problem is to get that great experience it costs money. Well I have great news if you live in Columbus, Ohio (or most other towns with big salon chains). You can have this experience and not pay through the nose. How? Well let me explain.
Most major salon companies have a haircutting technique unique to them. In order to ensure that all of their stylists follow this technique they retrain them upon hiring. So once a stylist graduates from cosmetology school and gets hired by Kenneth’s or Charles Penzone they begin working at the companies hairstyling school. In Columbus, Ohio Kenneth’s Academy is located on Sawmill Rd. in Dublin and Charles Penzone’s Studio is in Gahanna. These locations offer the same ambiance as the more expensive grand salons at a fraction of the cost. While you are not getting years of experience these stylists are licensed and quite capable. You can even request a stylist who is nearing the end of their time at the school. Another bonus is that Kenneth’s offers a referral program, for every customer you send to them you get a $5 coupon in the mail ( the person must mention you by name). If Aveda is your preferred salon you can get your haircut at the Aveda Institute near OSU campus. The only difference is the stylists at Aveda do not have their license yet.
So now you know the big secret you can pay less for the same haircut if you have the stylist cut your hair while still in training or you can wait a week and when they start at the regular salon pay more. I don’t know about you but I prefer to pay less!
