Factors Influencing Service Costs

Supercuts InsideWhile Supercuts prices are consistent nationally, a few factors can impact the total service cost:

  • Hair length – Long or thick hair requires more time to cut and style, usually adding $5-10.
  • Complex styling – Intricate updos, braids, thermal curls will have a higher base price.
  • Multiple processes – Doing a perm plus a color costs more than a perm alone.
  • Product usage – Extra hair coloring or treatment products can add cost.
  • Add-on services – More services mean a higher ticket price.

Discuss any specific hair needs with your stylist upfront so final pricing is clear before getting started. This allows for the best service within your budget.

Finding a Supercuts Location and Pricing

With over 2,700 locations, Supercuts has salons in every state and most major metro areas. Use the salon locator on their website to find one nearby. You can call the local salon directly to ask about current pricing, promotions, or to book an appointment.

Conclusion

With excellent training standards, convenient locations, and transparent everyday low pricing, Supercuts offers unbeatable value for all hair care services. The salon menu covers cuts, styling, coloring, textures, and waxing for men, women, and kids. While prices remain extremely reasonable, the haircut quality from skilled stylists never disappoints. Supercuts continues to be a top choice for millions looking for an affordable but professional salon experience.

How much do you tip for a $20 haircut?

The standard tip amount for a $20 haircut is $4-5. This equals an 18-25% tip, which is considered an appropriate amount for good service for a basic haircut.

While tipping norms can vary, stylists at budget chain salons like Supercuts generally expect an 18-20% tip. For exceptional service – such as for a complex style or color treatment – tipping up to 25% is a nice gesture.

But for routine haircuts, sticking to $4-5 on a $20 cut is perfectly acceptable. Tipping can be done in cash or added when paying by debit/credit card. Making sure to tip your hairdresser appropriately encourages excellent service on future visits.

What is a Supercuts 2?

A Supercuts 2 is a higher-tier salon concept also owned by Regis Corporation, the parent company of Supercuts. Supercuts 2 salons offer more upscale facilities, expanded services, and premium hair care products compared to regular Supercuts locations.

Supercuts 2 features trendy decor, free wi-fi, coffee bars, and enhanced client comforts. The services menu includes more complex styling, waxing, manicures, makeup, and scalp treatments beyond basic haircuts.

However, Supercuts 2 pricing is only about 10-20% higher than regular Supercuts pricing for similar services. The expanded offerings and amenities aim to attract younger, fashion-focused customers.

While still moderately priced, Supercuts 2 provides a stepped-up salon experience compared to the basic budget Supercuts. There are currently around 50 Supercuts 2 locations, mostly in metro areas and near colleges, positioning the concept between value-tier and mid-tier hair salons.

Overall, Supercuts 2 offers more contemporary style and a wider menu of services versus standard Supercuts, at a small premium.

    I would like to know why you are punishing us senior citizens after all these years. I have been a customer at the one at Lawndale in Saginaw since they opened as a Beauty shop years ago. To walk in after all these years on Friday on Lawndale and be told I could no longer get my Senior discounts hurts. I’m handicap, walk with a walker, do not drive, and have to depend on someone else to get there. My income hasn’t gone up but you keep raising yours. Is that fair? Oh by the way I’m, a former beauty operator as was my mother.
