Company History

Cost Cutters history began in the 1970s with Joe Francis who began the Barbers Hairstyling for Men Salon. While his initial offerings were geared towards men, he quickly discovered the benefits of working with women’s hair as well.

In the next five years after opening, he began offering services for both men and women, and he opened the first Cost Cutters.

Originally a family-owned brand, Cost Cutters quickly excelled in the Minnesota area where they first opened. In fact, 12 salons opened in the first year of operations.

Within a few years, the number of salons numbered in the hundreds. Cost Cutters boasts over 800 salons in the United States today with many of them operating in the Midwest where they were initially based.

Today, Cost Cutters is no longer family owned but is a part of the Regis brand of salons, which also includes such well-known salons as Fiesta Salons and Hairmasters.

It remains based in the Twin Cities of Minnesota. With such a well-known name behind it, Cost Cutters is sure to continue succeeding in the upcoming decades as well.

  1. I am looking for Cost Cutters Professional Styling Wax (Shine & Define Wax). Could you please tell me if you sell it or can point me in the direction of where to get anymore. It’s the only product that really works in my very short hair and I’m almost out. Have had this tub for over 5 years as I only use a very small amount. I can find no salon who sells it anymore. I bought it at a Regis Hair Salon in Walmart in Ephrata or Bonney Lake, WA.

  2. The Shampoo and Cut price listed is about $6 higher than what I paid before tip on 11/23/2019 at my local Cost Cutters—their price is $15.50 for that service, not $21.50.

  3. They do? I was told they didn’t at the shop on Westheimer in Houston. And charged me 15.00 for a blow dry. I feel like I got ripped off. 37.00 for a haircut????! So your allowing them to overcharge? What kind of place is that????

  4. I am so disappointed in my visit to your salon.
    I had a all over hair color, highlights and a trim. I do have long hair.
    I walked out of your salon paying $171.00. Yes you read that right….. $171.00
    I called back the salon to asking about their pricing, because NOTHING was posted about your prices. I was told they were taken down and new ones were not up yet.
    Don’t you think the hair dresser should have given her client the new prices? I do !!!!!
    I did not get a receipt for services rendered. Nor was I given a senior discount that your web site says. I am a senior citizen and was disappointed that it wasn’t offered to me. If there would have been some kind of price posting I could have made a decision on weather or not I could afford to have a service done. For 171.00 I would not have….I live on a budget and could not afford that.. so disappointed. I will never go to your salon again. you have lost a good customer , not to mention telling all my friends and neighbors, I had to put this on a credit card. because there was no way I had the cash

    • My girlfriend just got her hair highlighted and cut and it cost $190(!) that neither of us had to spend since we are about to move into a new apartment that was a third of our rent or deposit with neither of us able to get the money back. We might be homeless now because my girlfriend was too intimidated to say anything or to refuse she wasn’t told the price until after it was all done and there were no prices posted or explained to her prior to it all being done or during.

      • Wow that’s really crazy and I’m sorry that happened to y’all! I was thinking about going there today to get a haircut and maybe highlights but I’m so thankful I found these reviews. Because one place I called yesterday said it would be $25 for a haircut and starting around $70 for highlights and I just told her I was going to call around to some other places to see if I could get it done a little cheaper than that because I draw disability and I can’t afford that much money. I really want highlights but I’m thinking about just getting a cut because I had no idea highlights had went up that much!! That’s absolutely ridiculous and I’m glad I didn’t go in there and have it done and not know the price until afterwards, that’s just ridiculous and they should tell their customers or put it up on a sign so that people know what they are getting because that’s a lot of money! That’s a car payment, or a weeks worth of groceries or insurance payment or even a light bill!! That’s seriously messed up that they didn’t tell some of y’all and y’all had to pay that not knowing! That’s pathetic and sad and it’s very wrong!!

        • If you can’t afford to pay the price maybe you don’t need it done. We stylist work very hard to give the best service and spend a lot of money in education to be well versed in our line of work. If you want your hair done for cheap, don’t expect the outcome to be as great, you get what you pay for.

          Respectfully yours

    • I recently did an all over color with purple blended into the ends. My husband had gone to the one in Alliance Ohio to give me a gift card for Christmas and when he asked the lady how much it would cost she told him $120 would cover it. I took my gift card to the one in Canton Ohio and by the time she added everything up it was going to cost me $270. This was because they had to bleach it and my hair is long and thick. Now this is something he already told them however the price changed. Now the stylist in Canton before she ever did any work to my hair gave me a quote and I had to sign it. I must say I was displeased with my experience as well. Not so much because of what it ended up costing but because it took her over 8 hours to do my hair she could not even comb through it I eventually went out to the car and got my brush and brushed it myself the shampoo and conditioner they use in there is crap so it was like not having any conditioner in my hair at all and I have naturally curly thick long long hair. On top of that after sitting in there for 8 hours going home and seeing several missed spots in my hair , yes I was displeased but my stylist was amazing. My point is it would surprise me that from one Salon to the next that they did not give a quote before they touched your hair.

  5. I have been coming to Cost Cutters for the last couple of years for perms and have been very pleased…… until today. They told me my appointment was 9:15. The gal that greeted me told me that my appointment was @ 9:30……no big deal except I had to stand in the doorway and wait because there was no place to sit. Same gal permed my hair. I told her no haircut but she insisted and started pushing hair products. She barely snipped any hair off of my head because it is already short. But since it was included in the price of the perm , I said nothing. After perm was finished ( she did a great job) she tried to sell me 4-5 different products. I felt very intimidated and she charged me for a haircut and medium length perm. This is why I quit going to hair salons …..because they are too expensive! I will definitely get a price before I sit on the salon chair again. Even though I was a bit peeved I still tipped 20 percent. What an expensive experience!

  6. Please have your stores put pricing signs up. Also your stylist should tell you how much it’s going to cost. My salon in New Castle PA charges me almost $100 dollars to dye and style my hair. I don’t think I will be going there to much longer. It’s to bad because she does a wonderful job.

  7. I just got a perm last week. The Famous Hair site said the poems were $48.00. My perm ended up costing me $58.00! I asked about a color and I was told $58.00…I am really going to pester my daughter to color my hair, she was a stylist many years ago. What is going on with the big increases??
