Salons for Cheap Haircuts in Houston

Paul Mitchell The School

10516 Old Katy Rd, Suite A, Houston, TX 77043

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.

22 Hair Salon

9896 Bellaire Blvd, Houston, TX 77036

There are quite a few salons in Chinatown that offer inexpensive haircuts and 22 is no exception. Cuts for women start at $15 but for the big bucks the salon also specializes in Japanese straightening perms.

Venus Hair

361 W 19th St, Houston, TX 77008

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.

Star Hair Salon

4211 Caroline St, Houston, TX 77004

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.

Times Barber Shop

2041 Southwest Fwy, Houston, TX 77098

There's no reason to hit the mega hair salon chains when retro cool barbershops like this one exist. Men relax in leather easy chairs for a quality cut or old-fashioned shave for a mere $10-15.
