The first time I went to Supercuts was over 15 years ago.
It was winter and I just needed a trim. I went to Supercuts because it was near and the place always seemed pretty busy so I thought it would be good.
So I sit in the chair and the stylist wets my hair. She asks me how long I want my hair and I point to a certain length and she combs my (wet) hair till it's really straight. She then takes her scissors and makes one straight cut from right to left. Then she takes off the cape and tells me that I'm done. She was going to let me go with my hair dripping wet.
I asked about them drying my hair and apparently they charge extra for that.
It was night time and I was just going to take a shower when I got back home so there was no point in having my hair styled but I figure, it was winter, it was night time and I came in with dry hair. Wasn't it just proper that they send me home with dry hair too ?
So I asked to use their blow dryer and I worked on getting my hair reasonably dry (i.e. not dripping wet). That was the worst $7 I'd ever spent in my life.
Needless to say, I never went back....
.... until yesterday.
I had accrued the maximum amount of vacation days at work and had been losing them so I decided to file for a day off yesterday. I had been looking forward to that day off and had my heart set on getting my hair trimmed but I learned one important thing yesterday - MOST SALONS ARE CLOSED ON MONDAYS!
My desperation led me to Supercuts, I did my research and found a stylist that was mentioned by name several times in their reviews. It must have been my lucky day yesterday because said stylist was available. I went and now, I've since slept and washed my hair and I am still happy.
I don't know if I plan on going back next time but it's definitely a possibility if I find my favorite salon/stylist out again.
