5 Places To Get A Cheap Haircut In Montreal & Not Regret It

How does $15 sound?
5 Places To Get A Cheap Haircut In Montreal & Not Regret It
  • Looking for a cheap haircut in Montreal that won't have you crying afterwards?
  • We've hunted down the 5 best salons that will get you looking your best without dropping $100.
  • Consider one of these spots for your next chop and you may even be helping a hair student along the way!

Montreal has no shortage of hair salons, but I find one thing lacking is a reasonably-priced cut. Finding anything below even $30 (yeah, for women) is nearly impossible, to say the least.

So where do you go to get your hair cut when you are a little short on money? I had to do some digging to come up with these solutions (most of which I did not even realize were an option). I polled friends, poured over Reddit and read every review on Yelp and TripAdvisor. And these were the five places that kept coming up time and time again.  

I have had personal experience with getting my own cut at hair schools before (back when I was in school), but I hadn’t visited one in Montreal.  After talking to friends and family who absolutely swear by student cuts, I will definitely be giving one of them a try next time.  

All the places on this list give cuts for a max of $15. If you’re a guy some of the cuts start as low as $8.

Without further wait, here are the 5 cheapest places in Montreal that you can get a haircut and not regret it. 

Haircuts for Anyone

WHERE: 390 St-Zotique East

COST: Price is on a sliding scale from $20-$60

This salon "is committed to giving people of all genders, sexes, sexualities and ethnicities haircuts without judgment." So along with a great cut, it's a great business to support.

Google Maps

Ecole de Coiffure International

This hair school lets you choose from student, junior or senior stylists depending on how much you want to pay.


Pure Acadamie 

WHERE: 3458 St-Denis

Another hairstyling school, but this one happens to be in the heart of the Plateau. They are open until 9:30 PM, which makes it easier to get an appointment if you work during the day.


Now you're ready to go out and get that fresh Fall cut you've been dreaming about, and you don't have to forsake that cute Fall outfit you've been imagining going with it, either!
