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. 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 which will give you a mean haircut for INR 1,000 and below {this excludes the taxes}.

Hair Ok Please is a dainty salon in Churchgate. It’s run by Pia who’s also the senior stylist there. For INR 1,000 and below they offer a 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.

What’s included: Hair wash, conditioning and blow dry which is a bonus for anyone who’s looking to come out with their best hair cut face. And we all know what that means. #Selfie

#LBBTip: We do advise you to book an appointment in advance so the stylists are free to tend to you.

Happy In The Head is possibly one the most popular salons in the city. Avani Yashwin, the owner and head stylist runs it out of an adorable space which they’re covered up with twinkling lights and inspirational quotes. For INR 800, Presy aka the junior stylist will give you a nice and funky haircut. The latter being completely your choice.

What’s included: Unfortunately, just the hair cut bit. They also have a resident cat and doggo, in case that makes a difference {we know it does} because in this case, cuddles are included.

Lemon, Andheri West

Lemon has a lot of branches across the city, however, we like the outlet in Andheri West. At Lemon, you can get your hair cut from a senior stylist for INR 800, and for INR 1,000 from the creative stylist. It’s super pocket friendly, the stylists are open to suggesting us different styles and will even stop if you feel a little more than the decided inch is being cut off.

What’s included: Though they are generous with the stylists and hair cuts, the prices do not include hair wash/or blow dry. Just make sure to wash you hair before going in for the hair cut. However, for INR 200 you can get it washed and conditioned too.

Dessange, Bandra

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 800.

What’s included: Just the hair cut. However, if you ask nicely, they will put a nice smelling serum post the ordeal.

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 wrecking 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. Do make an appointment in advance so the stylists can free themselves up for your fabulous makeover.

What’s included: Hair wash, conditioning and blow dry is all within under INR 1,000.
