Women often find it hard when it comes to parting with inches off their hair. If you’ve found that one saloon, you tend to repeat it even if it may exceed your budget. Even though weirdly enough, getting a haircut has become synonymous with “I’m okay with spending that much”, we did a little bit of digging around and found salons that will give you a mean haircut for INR 1,500 and below (this excludes the taxes).

Hair By Pia, Churchgate
Hair By Pia is a dainty salon in Churchgate that's run by Pia, who’s also the senior stylist there. For INR 1,000 and below they offer a varied range of haircuts. From lobs (that is, giving you the long bobs), fringes to fine-tuning your hair- they will do it for you. Apart from Pia, we also recommend asking for their senior stylist, Angam who’ll be your hair fairy.

Lemon, Andheri West
Lemon has a lot of branches across the city, however, we like the outlets in Andheri West's Lokhandwala/Versova. At Lemon, you can get your hair cut for INR 1,000 from the senior stylist. It’s super pocket-friendly, the stylists also suggest us different styles and will even stop if you feel that a little more than the decided inch is being cut off.

Dessange Salon is a favourite with Bandra women and rightly so. It’s fancy, luxurious and the stylists are trained well to understand what will suit you and what won’t. Though most of the haircuts are expensive, we found out that the junior stylist will give you a decent haircut for INR 1500.
Shell Out: INR 1,500
What’s included: A hair wash, cut and styling. However, if you ask nicely, they will put a nice smelling serum post the cut.
Little Beyond Hair, Mulund
We absolutely love this cute little salon that is run by Tejal Shah in Mulund. The decor is pretty and you will feel at home as we all know how nerve-wracking haircuts can be. Depending on the stylist you go for (junior or senior) your haircuts will range between INR 450 to INR 600. This, we feel, is an amazing budget for getting a pretty hair cut that too out of such a quirky little place.
