Just Cuts Canberra Centre giveaway

Its not often that i give much though to haircuts. About the only time is when the wall mirror in our building lift reminds me that I’m looking more dishevelled than usual and its probably about time I make myself presentable so that my wife still finds me attractive after 14 years.

The recent opening of Just Cuts in the Canberra Centre came with an interesting offer through their marketing people. “Write us a review and we’ll give you a bunch of haircuts to give away”. Here at RiotACT we dont mind writing reviews, but we feel it gives a more authentic experience if they’ve got no idea that someone is about to plaster an assessment of their product or service all over the internet. To further throw off any suspicion that we were doing a review and just to mix things up I volunteered my 6yo son James to test them out.

On arrival in a very clean and tidy shopfront we were greeted Haynee. Just Cuts have an interesting model – you cannot make a booking. Everything is drop in, take a seat and wait til there’s an empty chair. Perhaps we were lucky, but at 3.15pm on a wednesday afternoon we got straight in.

Haynee managed to handled with aplomb my son talking non stop about how he looks like a 7yo despite only being 6, and about about a million other random things that typically flow from a 6yo’s mouth. She even managed draw out an idea of what he wanted, with a quick check with me to make sure it was an acceptable choice. Lucky for me, he stopped short of asking for Haynee’s blue and pink hair which would have gone down really well at school the next day.

After a quick 15 minutes of snipping, brushing and a bit of hair product it was all done. Haynee took the time to provide james with a membership card which he’s very proud, and explain to me how their pricing model works which if my recollection serves has an adult style cut at around $28 and kid at around $20. In my opinion quite reasonable compared to what i have paid in the past and I thought the service very personable, friendly and engaging.

The results, well you can see for yourself with the before and after shot above. I think there is a bit of a blue steel look going on & my wife thinks its the best haircut he’s ever had.

For RiotACT readers we’ve got 10 haircuts to give away at Just Cuts Canberra Centre. All you need to do is to tell us in 25 words or less in the comments why you need a haircut. The most amusing as judged by johnboy & I will win.

What’s Your opinion?

I got my hair cut yesterday morning. I got straight in and they did a really good job, one of the best hair cuts I’ve had from a Just Cuts. I will be making this my regular place to get a haircut.

I take back my call of shenanigans as I got my free voucher in the mail the other day and ventured on in this afternoon to rid myself of this excess growth that’s been bugging me for the last month. I was greeted at the counter by Haynee (with a lovely smile I might add) and shown straight to a chair for a nice quick and pleasant haircut. The conversation was good, the resulting hair loss was just the way I expected and I didn’t need to set aside a large portion of my day to go and get it done.
I’ll be going back, just hope they don’t get too busy. I Quite enjoyed going straight to the chair and missing out on the sitting and waiting.

I suspect a cunning ruse intended to get the name “Just Cuts Civic” emblazoned for eternity onto the Mully Cup. Thread offering something free to users who post, started withing a few days of the month beginning, photo of a red headed kid (people find it hard to hold off on the ranger jokes). It all points to a conspiracy aimed at breaking the all time Mully Cup record.

Well, I hope it wins. Sincerely. Though I doubt any hairdressing salon since 1985 would like to be associated with something that sounds like ‘mullet’.

why does someone who doesn’t like a haircut say something at the time to the hairdresser and let them know their concerns and/or ask them to fix it then and there. Rather that than hand over the money anyway while you’re secretly hating it, go home, ring up and complain and have to go back again for a tidy up?

Possibly because the only difference between a good haircut and a bad haircut is a week? Whining is pointless when it will sort itself out.

25 words right there by the way 🙂

Such a bad haircut on my three year old that I had to call them to complain.

I look after the Tuggeranong Just Cuts and sorry to hear you had such a bad experience Madam Cholet. We specialise in kids cuts and if we can make it up to you please let me know and i’d be glad to invite you and your son back for a complimentary cut. If not no worries – hope the guys at Moes keep up the good work for you.

Loving the entries – keep them coming and i’ll see if we can swing Jazz a few more comp cuts so you can all come in and try out our new Canberra Centre salon.
