Free Haircuts in August at JCPenney!
So back to school time around our house means backpacks, notebooks, and – well – haircuts!
Once upon a time I thought I could take care of all of our hair care needs for much less than it costs to get haircuts at the local salon. I went to a beauty shop and purchased a hair cutting kit, complete with nice sharp hair cutting scissors and an apron. I set up a hair styling station outside in our driveway (I’m sure the neighbors loved that!), had the girls shampoo their hair, and then began to clip.
It didn’t turn out badly, and I still do all of the trimming that needs to be done every month or six weeks. I don’t, however, ‘shape’ their hair. I know my limitations! My mom put a bowl on my head and gave me a Dorothy Hamill years ago, but I don’t have so much faith in my styling abilities, and so every six months I take the girls in for professional cuts so they have some style. I have to pay about $15 per cut, which does make me cringe, but I like that they can layer the girls’ hair and make it look, well, ‘flippy’, since all I can do is trim the dead ends off.
I’d almost signed them up for their back to school end of summer cuts last week when I read this awesome news:
JCPenney salons across the country will offer FREE haircuts for kids in grades K through 6th during the month of August!
To schedule an appointment check out this site, or call your local salon.
Since I’m in dire need of a cut and shape, I’m going to make an appointment for my girls and ask if they can do mine at the same time. Three haircuts for the price of one? I can live with that!
