Dear 100 Hour Board,
Hair question! I'm a guy who's been growing his hair out for about a year and a half by now, which has been a pretty fun change and it's quite long. At this point I'm considering cutting it short again before the end of the year, but I haven't committed to that yet. However, in the past year and a half I haven't had it cut or trimmed a single time, and before I get it cut short, I want to get at least one haircut to really make it look good while it's still long. Do you have any recommendations for places to get a good haircut? And would it be better to go to a barber shop or hair salon? Also, I'm not trying to break the bank with a haircut, but I'm definitely willing to pay more than $15 to make sure it's good.

Dear Oh So Pretty,
It would appear that none of us have recommendations. Personally, the last time my hair was cut/trimmed was in 2018 so I'm definitely not the right person to be asking. Your best bet is probably to look up online reviews or making a post on social media.
Sorry to not be of more help, and if any readers have recommendations, please leave a correction.
I always cut my own hair. I seriously can't remember the last time I had it done professionally. My recommendation is to look into local hair schools (Paul Mitchell being an example). Most of the time you can get a good deal because the students there are still learning, but they also are trained enough and dedicated enough to do a good job.
Because I haven't been many places and don't know your price range or preferences, I'm not sure what else to tell you. There are LOTS of aesthetics places and salons around. I doubt you could go seriously wrong with any of them as long as you're clear on what you want them to do.
