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.
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.
