Your mom is right 99% of the time and she's definitely right about this: You need a haircut. But if you're strapped for cash or avoiding a big monetary investment in Bieber bangs, there are plenty of salons for cheap haircuts in Houston. And we mean super-cheap.

Cosmetology students cut and style hair for rock bottom prices: a haircut from a ?Phase I? stylist will only set you back $10 and work from a ?Phase II? student costs only $5 more. Be prepared to spend a long time in the chair though, as teachers will often pause a session to monitor and advise on technique.
While it doesn't offer a dirt cheap haircut, this quirky salon in the Heights definitely provides good value. Cuts for women start around $30 and the salon is a favorite among women who go for funky styles and the occasional, tasteful blue streak.
When we said cheap haircut, we really meant cheap. The sign for this salon reads ?$3.99 Haircuts? much more prominently than it does the name of the business. But you get what you pay for--there's no shampoo service and the job is done at lightening speed.
