One way I save a lot of money is by doing at home hair coloring. Going lighter is hard but staying the same shade or going darker is easy. I found that by dying my hair back to the root color, I can save a bundle on hair coloring and can color less often. If you want you can always go one shade lighter or darker than your root color. You can also add a tint of red to browns to warm up a shade. If you dye your hair red it will eventually fade but you cannot take the red hint out yourself. Don't go blond right after or you will be orange.

I also do my own hair cutting. When your hair is long and curly there is not much you can mess up. I do bang trims for my girls. A simple buzz cut with your own clippers works for the boys too.
You can also get coupons for places like Supercuts and Hair Cuttery. There is also training places for these salons so you can get free haircuts even though you might have to wait a little longer.
