I do not wish to be the bearer of bad news, but there is no difference between the two. So if you are looking to save a little bit of money when calling to make your appointment, the “ten dollar trim” option is probably not on the menu.
Whether you want a lot of hair taken off or a little, it is of no matter. You will still be draped, shampooed, combed out, and your hair will be cut. Unless you are completely changing your look, the time taken for a trim/haircut will be the same because they are the same. Poor trims. They get a bad rap, because the phrase is so commonly used in the salon. It is the perfect way to describe the small amount of length a customer wants taken off for their service. However, a small amount of length does not equal a smaller amount of money. If someone says they will trim your hair for ten dollars, politely decline and walk away. Grandma may say don’t laugh when your friend is crying, but As The Curl Turns believes you should ask if they are crying because of their bad, cheapity-cheap haircut.
p.s.- difficulty cleaning the slots of your knife holder? Try using a pipe cleaner. It should pull the dusties right out.
