K Cuts – Hair Cuts At $10 In 10 Minutes

on February 6, 2017

I have been struggling with my regular hairstylist that charges me $18 for a hair cut without frills of a wash or scalp massage.

My screwed on neck cannot handle the stretch and alcove of the ceramic sink and so instead of $35, I pay $18 minus the fuss.

I have no issue with her styling but I have issues with her shop location’s parking.

It is almost impossible to get parking and she is insistent on specific times for hair cut. If I miss that, then I have to wait. But for cyring out loud I was a stone throw’s away but I could not get a parking lot!

I have explained to her that I do no drive a Ferrari or a Porsche and I cannot be there in a click of a time.

So on Sunday, I mustered up courage to try Korean stylist K Cuts at $10 in 10 minutes.

As a newbie, I learnt that I had to slot a $10 bill into the machine to get a ticket. My ticket read 208!

I was 5th in line and the only lady amongst men as I sit and wait my turn, I am amazed at how cut hair on the floor is pushed to a slot at the bottom of cupboards and it gets sucked into it.

So neat and tidy!

Unlike my stylist who has to use a dust pan and broom, sweeping only after a couple more customers have had their hair trimmed.

My K Cut Stylist is Poh Ling. She has been doing this for 10 years and I could see her cutting style was not bad as she went through the customers before me.

I had to wait for 50 minutes before my turn came. Which was right, 10 minutes per customer and I was the 6th customer.

She took out a brand new comb and started my hair cut using both scissors and clippers.

I chatted with her and she said that my hair tends to poof up! She thins and layers my hair, explaining that I should keep my right side of my hair longer so that it can flow better.

Not bad for $10! I get advice for haircut, offer of the brand new comb used for me, to take home if I’d like.

I was a satisfied customer and will definitely return.

Based on the number of 210 when I left, this meant that in 8 hours she made ticket sales of $2,100 for K Cuts!

Not bad and she was every bit polite and professional too! Masked with a surgical mask she was a one person show and politely asked to be excused to go to the ladies.

I was glad I mustered courage to try. Sometimes good deals are indeed good deals and admittedly her haircut was better than my stylist!

  1. oh, good, u got a new haircut person who is better than the previous one and cheaper too. and she does men’s hair too. if she had been doing it for 10yrs, how come u never heard of her till now? how did u get to know about her?

      K Cuts is a Korean chain and to me, $10 in 10 minutes deterred me from trying as being a lady, my worry was if my hair was massacred! Ha ha! The signage did not say she has 10 yrs experience. Still I hope they do not rotate her away the next time I go in a month’s time😊

      • sounds like she is catering to men , and their haircut. as a man i dont mind having a hair cut that is so quick. in fact i prefer it. she is a quick worker, if she takes 10mins to do your hair. women’s hair styles take up much more time i think. whilst a man’s haircut, short back and sides can be done quick. even so, the barbers here in london dont work that fast.

    It’s always nerve wracking trying a new hairdressers, but you lucked out! πŸ™‚

  3. I am also skeptical about how a 10-minute hair cut for $10 can be any good, but after reading your post, maybe I’ll give it a try! πŸ™‚

  4. Very brave of you πŸ™‚ I haven’t had my hair cut since about March last year…I just hack the ends off myself ha ha ha!!
