Experts say the lowest prices on back to school supplies occur in the last half of July, but August is already shaping up as another bargain month.

JC Penney is offering kids in kindergarden-6th grade a free haircut all month long. It's a $14 value (haircut only, no shampoo or style). JC Penney salons in the Twin Cities area include Rosedale (651-631-3330), Southdale (952-920-8101), Ridgedale (952-544-6000), Eden Prairie Center (952-944-6807), Maple Grove (763-416-1708) and Maplewood (651-779-3040).


Appointments are requested but not required. Other salons will also offer haircut specials too, although not a free cut. Great Clips will be sending out coupons in the mail soon. Fantastic Sams will mail out coupons in the Valassis insert  starting Aug. 12. A kids' haircut will be $9.99 and an adult haircut will be $10.99. Haircuts at Fantastic Sams include a free shampoo, conditioning rinse and a basic blow dry.   

Two other sources that can be good for haircut coupons are Valpak and Moneymailer.
