Extra savings tip:

Always ask the salon if they are running a promotion, or have a current coupon available. Keep an eye on the local coupon books and circulars because additional coupons do appear from time to time. You can also try the company websites, and coupon sites like www.retailmenot.com to check for current printable coupons. In some cases, some salons will also offer extra deals via Facebook and Twitter.
