Bang Trims. Let me count the wins.

Something I fully believe in, is complimentary bang trims for my regular clients. It’s a win win win win win (endless wins!) situation. This is not your run of the mill two win occurrences.

Don’t believe me? Let me count the wins.

Win 1- The haircut is suddenly fresh again! You can feel beautiful instead of miserable because you don’t have a hair curtain in front of your eyes!

Win 2-The stylists’ client’s haircut is suddenly fresh again! They are going to get hair compliments and probably tell people that you did it! Then you will get more business!

Win 3-It only takes 10 minutes, so you can squeeze them in (get squeezed in) almost any time, any day.

Win 4-It’s a free and nice way to show your clients you care about their hair and are grateful for their business.

Win 5-You don’t have to do it yourself and possibly ruin your entire haircut!

I think Win 5 is the biggest winner of them all.

May I make a suggestion? Don’t see a stylist that doesn’t offer free bang trims.

And on behalf of stylists everywhere I would like to casually mention that tipping your stylist for a bang trim is an extremely kind and welcomed gesture.

Here’s to beautiful bangs!

    OK, that’s it…I’m moving to NY so you can cut my hair. :-) (I actually have a delightful stylist, who probably would trim my bangs if I asked…) But I can’t help it….I’m a major bang trimmer! LOL!

    I love this post. I’m giving bangs another try next month after swearing I’d never put myself through them again. I abhor growing them out and the in-between stages, but my stylist said it’s her job to make the process as easy as possible. Hopefully that means the complimentary trims you address here :)

    I need a regular trim. When I am done being broke from moving (hopefully shortly) I will be coming in for that.

    I too would love to know the appropriate tip for a bang trim – you’re in an expensive city of course but still advice would be welcome! :)

    I think you could do an entire post on tipping! For instance, in Atlanta, my haircut is $66 but my sweet, sweet stylist blows out my very curly, very think hair for me. She books my appointment for one hour instead of her regular 45 minute window. I want to tip her for the extra time, but I’m not sure how much. I usually give her $90. What do you think?

    My stylist offers free bang trims, but I was wondering…is it okay to see her for more than one bang trim in between haircuts? I only get my hair cut a few times a year.

    As a stylist, I do this! And other stylists in my salon think I’m crazy, but i see it as that little thing that shows the client you care. and I don’t want to nickel and dime them to death. Just like baby’s first haircut with me is complimentary. I also don’t expect a tip, but it is always nice. I’d say check out how much a bang trim costs in surrounding salons and do 50% of that.

    You get back 10 fold what you give away! Bang trims are always complimentary with me, too. Maybe, selfishly it is benefiting me more as I don’t have to repair a butchering! :) Everyone wins~beautiful!

    As a hairstylist, I give free bang trims to my clients. I started doing this because most of my clients would request that I cut their bangs shorter then they wanted, so they would last longer. But you just end up not liking them for a few weeks. So I always suggest that they come see me between haircuts, so they can have perfect bangs. Most of my clients tip $5-20 for a bang trim.

    Aw, this was a really good post. Taking a few minutes and actual effort to create a really good article… but what can I say… I hesitate a whole lot and don’t manage to get nearly anything done.
