  • Cant get hair cut

    I hope corporate or owner of the CC at 5510 Forrest drive in Columbia reads this. Your store is almost impossible to get hair cut. Today is Friday 8/18/17 and you have 1 stylist working. I guess no one THOUGHT that anyone would need a hair cut the Friday before eclipse weekend. Or any Friday for that matter. You use to be able to walk in and get hair cut. I guess your store is making so much revenue that you don't need to make money on Friday. It's 100 degree's and I'll guess I'll wear a HAT!!! GREAT!! More...

  • Cost Cutters broken sink

    I have been going to Cost Cutters on Robinson St in Binghamton,NY for 20 plus years. Today I went to have wonderful Jen cut my hair and the appearance was terrible by the sinks. The whole salon smelt like mildew or something rotten. There was a bucket under the sink and a bucket in the sink with combs and brushes being cleaned I quess. I have never been there and seen it in this condition it is always clean and never smelt like it did today. In my opinion this needs to be addressed ASAP. More...

  • Seriosuly? Why do you care Cost Cutters how a person uses a gift card

    This is about the Cost Cutters at the Chapel Hills Mall in Colorado Springs.Okay, so I buy gift cards for friends who need haircuts. They come in handy when you are on a fixed budget and at 4 for $40 for the holidays it's even better. Went into the one in this post over the weekend to buy a couple of those gift cards and was told I couldn't buy more than one at a time and I had to go back another day to get another(which I did but was an inconvenience). I called their corporate office who contacted the district manager for the salon who left a message saying that was their policy... More...
  • Lower than low expectations

    I had already heard nightmares about Cost Cutter haircuts, but my style is so easy I thought "how bad can they screw it up?" Plus, "what do you expect for $16?" Well, Katie exceeded my already low expectations. Just like in a comedy movie, from the first swipe of the trimmers I knew I was screwed. Now I have no hair on the back of my head. With zero training as a hair stylist I could have done a better job! If you care anything at all about your appearance do not go here! Add another $10 to your investment and go ANYWHERE else! More...

  • Store#62144 Ticket: 2 Stylist: Bonnie asked for A frame and got a chop job

    I went in there with below the shoulders length hair. I asked for an A frame cut and to only take a little off I didn't want my hair much shorter. When she was done she had took a huge chunk out of the back of my head, when I asked her to refund me or fix it she started hacking at my hair and it is now at my jaw line and longer on one side and crooked in the back still. I ended up just walking out. I now have to go somewhere else to get my hair fixed. I want reimbursed and for them to pay for me to have to get it fixed, AGAIN! I have never been so upset my hair is horrible and ugly now. More...

  • Worst haircut of my life

    It is so disgusting it makes me sick that I had to pay for it. I wanted it cut straight across but she cut it heart shape. Then she took a whole 4 inches off despite I only asked for two. Then she layered my bands DESPITE the fact I said NO layers. Top it all off, one side was obviously much longer than the other (1 inch and 1/2). My hair looks like a terrible mess a cat barged up. I'm crying and NEVER going here again. More...

  • Cost Cutter's Scheduling Complaint

    I made an appointment with Cost Cutters, S. Greeley Highway, Cheyenne, WY for 10:00 a.m. I arrived at ten and was told it would be "just a few minutes, a little boy needed a trim." A half hour later, two men came in, the little boy was finished. The stylist I was scheduled at ten with told the men to come back. I told her my appointment was at ten, she told me the men had an appointment before me.

    Had two horrible kids cuts. Had to go home and fix both. Done by two different stylist.same location. First one was my older son, all we needed was a Mohawk. Told her not to take any length on top. Of course she cuts it almost all the way down. It looked like an army cut. I could tell my son was embarrassed. We ended up just taking clippers at home and getting rid of it.she also left lines all over his head. Another thing i've never seen before she cut into the little dip in back of neck.

  • no credit topped up on electricity key

    I have topped up of £20.00 electricity on my key on 23.08.14. When I insert my key into a smart meter it showed nothing, no money at all. I went back to shop but they refused to deal with me saying :'' all went through, there was no rejection on receipt''. They told me to call my electric supplier. So I went to co-operative shop and topped up this key with £5.00 just to check whether my key works. There was £5.00 on the key and I could have used my electricity. It means they somehow stole my money. I am not happy with this service at Cost Cutter in... More...

    This total B**** Vanessa at the Mukwonago cost cutters told me to come back if my cut wasn't short enough. By the end of the day I wasn't satisfied, so I came back. After all, VANESSA did offer it up. WOW is all I can say. I told her I wanted it cut right at my hairline, but not to use the buzzer on my neck. What does she do??? She buzzes my neck before picking up the scissors or explaining what the hell she was doing! She choked me with the apron twice. I told her she was choking me with it.

  • Not the place for me!!

    I got hired here and have never been more embarrassed, as a stylist, in the 12 years that I've been doing hair. The first day I started, I was cutting a childs hair & this particular child did not sit still. (No big deal, it's normal) it took me 20 minutes to complete the haircut. I gout yelled at in front of a salon full of people, by my manager, saying 'You took too long! now we have to give them a free haircut coupon!!!' I was mortified, but took another client. A coworker was standing over my shoulder and practically grabbed the shears out of my hand & said... More...

    "At Cost Cutters Salon, our stylists aren't just trained to cut and color better, but to listen better, too. So you can trust you'll get a cut you love and leave feeling fabulous every time." Cost Cutters doesn't even live up to their own standards. This location is the worst. My fiance came home in tears today because of the horrible service she received. Before the hairstylist even asked her what she wanted she started cutting. This "professional" also didn't know the difference between 2cm and 2 inches. Given the fact she had already cut off...

  • Embarrassed by so-called mangement at Cost Cutters.

    I had an appt. today in Shererville, Indiana for a haircut. I have had the same beautician cut my hair for over 5 yrs. I had a coupon for $5.00 off regular price. I forgot to bring the coupon to the salon. I explained what I did and offered to bring the coupon in the next day. My beautician was ok with that but her boss, Debby, said no. So I left without my haircut. I made an appt. for the next day but changed my mind and cancelled it after returning home. Now I have decided to go elsewhere to get my haircut.. This Debby made me feel foolish and untrustworthy. She embarrassed me in... More...

Tonight I went and asked for the usual color, a few highlights trim JUST my bangs, eyebrows waxed. it usually cost around the 65 mark. They usually don't charge for the bangs as they are only taking a small amount off in one small spot, no sectioning, not time consuming, all of 2 minutes.

    Every time I've been to Cost Cutters I have never been pleased with the haircuts. I made a HUGE mistake going there to get my eyebrows waxed. On the first eyebrow she made it completely short and now my eyebrow start in the middle of the eye. The second eye she barley did anything to. Now my eyebrows are completely embarrassing and I have never been this unsatisfied. I can't even go out in public. More...

  • Cost Cutters Rude Management

    I had an interview with a manager that told me -AFTER she said I got the job- that my tattoos had to be covered because their salon is family oriented and tattoos are not. My tattoos are devotions to my FAMILY. They are not offensive, are professionally done, and tasteful. I served in the military prior to this interview; you can serve your country with art on your body, but not CUT HAIR?! Cosmetology, to me, is a profession of art and expression-but I have to limit myself and how I look while "showing off my art." HARD PASS More...

    I went in for just a trimm. My hair was down to my lower back. The lady that cut my hair would not listen to a word I said. I said that I just wanted a trimm. She kept saying that I need to get the dry ends off my hair. So I thought she meant dead ends which is about 2 inches at the most. Long story short she ended up cutting almost 7 inches off my hair!!! My hair is just below my shoulders now. I didn't realize that she was doing that until she gave me the mirror to see the back of my head. I've grown my hair out the last five years and she took it upon herself to cut it... More...

I attempted to have her fix it a few days later after she attempted to reassure me that "it looked ok." After my THIRD attempt, I was able to be seen. This consisted of me walking into the store, being "greeted" by two RUDE stylists, asked to come back and wait for OVER AN HOUR because they refused to do anything.

  • Devastating

    I went to Cost Cutters four months ago asking for a trim of the layered cut I've had for 30 years. I have long hair and love it long. I've never had a problem with anyone just trimming it up before. Instead, she cuts 80% of my hair about 3 inches long leaving the rest looking like I had just gone through a round of chemo! To make it tragic, I'm 60, and it will never grow back as healthy as it was, the texture has changed. And, to make it even worse, I was going through one of the most depressed state of emotions I've ever had and my hair was my one crowning glory I... More...

    Overall terrible experience. The only good thing was it was cheap. I asked for a trim to the overall length of my hair and a trim for my side-swept bangs. The woman cut a whole inch off the first half of my bangs and left the rest alone. I don't know if the cosmetology licences are real or not, all I know is they clearly need to be taught how to do a half decent job with bangs. The trim was okay, but unless you have an extremily simple haircut, DO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT coming to CostCutters until the improvement is made. More...
