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.

-Pretty Hair :)


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.



Dear Harry, 

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.

The Man Barber in down town provo does amazing things. It's about $40 a hair cut. but it's worth it.

Look up The Same But Shorter on Facebook. It’s a home salon in Orem, but she does great work. She cuts all hair but is specifically geared towards men’s haircuts. And it’s only $20 a cut!

I've heard good things about Danburry in downtown Provo, but I don't know how much he charges or if he does long hair.
