Comments Off on Free Haircuts for Kids

Here are two ways to get a free haircut for kids this month, just in time for back-to-school. If you know of any other kids’ freebies, tell us in the comment box below or drop me an email.

I’ve heard rumor that hair is supposed to grow faster in summer. Whether that’s true or not, these freebies are a snip to save dollars on kids’ haircuts before their bangs grow so long they’re walking into furniture.

Get a free haircut for kids at JCP Salons in the month of August 2012, for children in grades K – 6.  No coupon is needed, just make an appointment in stores or call 855-JCP-KIDS and mention the free haircut deal. (And please remember to tip even though the cut is free! The stylist will love you for it.) In Albuquerque, JCP Salons are in the JC Penney Stores at Cottonwood Mall and Coronado Center.

Underprivileged children can get a free haircut at the Kutz for Kidz Back to School event on August 12, 2012, as well as free school supplies!  (Advance registration required.) The Albuquerque Police Department teams up with local hairdressers to give children a professional free haircut, as well as backpacks, and school supplies. They also give kids a chance to meet law enforcement officers with demonstrations of APD’s Specialized Units. What’s more they’ll serve free drinks and BBQ hamburgers and hotdogs, and host appearances from UFC fighters and local athletes. Good for the APD for putting this together, and to the hairdressers volunteering their time!

Note that you need to register in advance for Kutz for Kidz and the free event is for underprivileged kids and youth. We have no information on what qualifies as underprivileged, or any age limits, but contact information is at their website. Kutz for Kidz is on Sunday August 12 from from 9 am to 6 pm at the APD Training Academy, 5412 2nd Street NW.

Comments Off on Salon Phoenix $25 for Hair & Beauty Services

Here’s a good excuse for a spring makeover! Get a choice of hair and beauty services from Salon Phoenix for just $25 with this certificate.  But don’t delay, quantities are limited.

For $25 you can take your pick of one of these four services:

  • Custom Cut & Deep Conditioning Treatment

Sounds like a pretty good deal to me, and a very affordable way to give yourself a spring boost. You buy your $25 Salon Phoenix certificate, and then make an appointment for the service of your choice. You can purchase up to 2 certificates per person. Gratuity is not included.

The Salon Phoenix $25 certificate deal comes courtesy of Good Day New Mexico’s Half Price Thursday, and there is a limited numbers available. So if you want to be cut, conditioned, highlighted, waxed or permed, best to order soon.

Note: the certificate is delivered by USPS mail in seven to ten days, at a cost of $3.75 . (You can have it delivered faster, but shipping fees kind of eat into the certificate savings, methinks.) The deal information says the certificate expires on November 1, 2011.
