Hair cut shops?

I realize that I haven't gotten my hair cut in almost a year and while I don't usually go to high end salons, I still don't like to pay for things that I know I can get in a shop. I used to do Super Cuts and Hair Cuttery (until the stylist cut my ear, pretended it didn't happen and then chased me out of the store asking why I didn't tip her) but I haven't seen anything in ages. Are these places still being shopped? I haven't seen anything other than brow service and blow outs, neither of which interest me.

OMG someone chased you out of the place, geeze! Glad your ear healed (optimistically believing it did).

I have in the past done a few haircut shops and regretted it, as my hair is longer and layered and the people who cut it were inexperienced and it was bad.

I don't know of any, but I use Groupon to get good deals on haircuts. Probably can find some good deals on Groupno without having to write a report. I just did--found a partial highlights/haircut package for a great price!
Don't cut it - sell it! Someone Hollywood starlet might wear your hair as extensions. Google hairSellon. I'm actually growing mine out to try this. Hopefully by next year I'll have at least the minimum length that buyers want.

Great Clips is shopped. It's only a flat payment and barely covers enough for a haircut.
Or at some locations, doesn't even cover the haircut. Never again.
another thing you can do is go to a beauty school. i usually try to figure out which ones are going to graduate in a few months and then go with them so it doesn't take forever in the chair. my haircut today was $10 and i tipped $5 and it was still cheap.
I learned a long time ago to just cut my own hair. My same $20 Wahl kit at Ross has saved me hundreds over the past decade since I started doing it. Whenever there's a shop that fully covers everything including a head massage and maybe a can of pomade, then by all means I'm down for a shop.

I have tried to cut my hair in the past, but I can't lift my right arm comfortably up that high so it would end up terribly. I'll probably just bite the bullet and go to Supercuts. I looked at Groupon, but nothing anywhere near me. We don't have any beauty schools around here. The tech school does it, but only once a month and the wait list is long.
Thanks all!
And yes, Jas, it has recovered, but the mental scarring will never go away. =D

I saw a late-night infomercial once for something called a Folbee or Flobee or something like that. All these grinning people with truly appalling haircuts bragging that they cut their own hair. I watched the whole thing. It was the Reefer Madness of infomercials - so awful that I just couldn't look away.
@panama18 Yes, the FLOWBEE. Sure, putting your hair into a vacuum sounds like a great idea lol. I work part time at a thrift shop and every time one of those comes in, I cringe.

Yeah, that's it. It hooked up to a vacuum cleaner. A truly stunning advancement, and foolproof too, I bet.

I swear that I thought for sure Tarantado was going to say he used one.

Two guys at my work use them because they are weird and cheap (and so hot ~ not!).
I truly miss those $100 cut and blow drys at a salon where I frequented on my own off and on. The MSC lost the client years ago. Now I pay but it's all good. I have seen the blow out jobs. I am not interested in that salon.
Some dude on a local radio station lost a contest between the hosts of the show and had a bowl cut and shave for his punishment...LOL. I know that they have a livestream but I didn't see it. I am sure it's just as not-hot.
I had to look it up to see the commercial again. I am shocked, but he reviews are actually pretty good. For anyone who has not seen it, here it is.

I dated a guy in the early 90's who had one. I never saw him use it. He had a real redneck mullet.
I just got an email from Bestmark about a shop with a $40 reimbursement.

Edited to add: Oops. False alarm. It's a salon shop but it's not a haircut.
