Family Hair Salon

Cost Cutters is a family-oriented, walk-in salon that provides a variety of hair care services in an informal, friendly atmosphere.

Located at 2715 State Highway 29 South in the Midway Mall in Alexandria, the goal of the staff at Cost Cutters is to provide its customers with caring, reliable and convenient service.

The Alexandria Cost Cutters has been locally-owned by Carolyn Anderson since 1986 and has been at its current location for 17 years. The salon offers a wide range of services for the whole family, including men, women and children.

“We specialize in haircuts, kids’ cuts, highlights, foils, perms, colors and waxing,” Anderson said. “Cost Cutters also provides those hard-to-find extra services, such as Malibus, Cera-Repair treatments and hair straightening. Our stylists keep up with the latest trends, techniques and products by frequently attending salon shows and training sessions.”

Cost Cutters also has an extensive range of hair care products available, including Cost Cutters, Biolage, Crew for Men, Sleek, Color Smart, and Malibu.

The Cost Cutters salon has recently been updated to include an additional stylist station, a new and improved waxing area, and new flooring.

“We would like to introduce you to our new Cost Cutters product line, which in addition to having a new feel, fragrance and look, also includes several wonderful new products.”

“The Alexandria Cost Cutters has been voted among the top 15 salons in Minnesota and has also been ranked number 68 throughout all the Cost Cutters in the United states,” she said.

“Without the continued support of our loyal customers, as well as our new customers, our Cost Cutters franchise would not be where it is today.” she said. “We would like to say thank you and let you know we really appreciate your business.”

Cost Cutters is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Saturdays from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

“With our accommodating hours, we can easily fit a hair service into your schedule, whether you walk in or call ahead,” she said. “And don’t forget your children. We make haircuts quick and comfortable, and children will leave with a smile, a new look and a different promotional toy every month.”
