In this article,I will share with you my own story about getting a haircut at Planet Fitness.


Planet Fitness Haircuts, What’s The Story?

“You badly need a trim”. That’s what my friend told me one summer day. To be honest I did really need a haircut.

With the summer heat plus the damaged hair ends, my hair was in need of some attention. However, I was too busy going to my usual salon downtown. 

But I was sticking to my workout schedule, no matter what. Luckily, my friend reminded me about the free haircut at Planet Fitness.

I had forgotten about the service, but it was perfect. I didn’t need to go anywhere else just to get a haircut. Plus, I can schedule it during my free time.

So I went ahead and checked the available slots. Luckily I was free that Saturday and the stylist had a slot available. 

I went to my appointment as scheduled. The good thing about the stylist at Planet Fitness is that they can cut your hair no matter what style you want. 

At first, I didn’t really know what I wanted but after chatting with the stylist, I decided to go for a long bob.

With my haircut, I said goodbye to the dry and split ends. It gave my hair body and shape. I really loved it. 

The long bob is perfect for me because some of the length has been removed, but there is still enough for me to comfortably tie my hair up.

All in all, I was very happy with my experience with my haircut. Of course, you’re not going to get a full-on salon experience, with balayage, hair toning, etc. But for a quick, basic cut, it works great!

Booking the slot is easy and the schedule was followed. It took a few minutes to get my hair cut, and it was great. 

How To Get A Haircut At Planet Fitness

Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to get a haircut at Planet Fitness.

  1. Sign-up for an appointment via phone call, text message or on-site.
  2. Give them your preferred hairstylist and preferred timing.
  3. Get a hold of your hairdresser and let them know that you’re already on the way for your appointment.

That’s it. It’s that simple.

You just have to remember that the stylist may have a scheduled time of availability. Also, there may be a queue and there can be limited slots depending, on the branch you go to.

Although Planet Fitness has more than a thousand facilities, not all of them may offer free haircuts.

What To Do Before You Book A Haircut

I know it can be exciting to get a free haircut at Planet Fitness. However, as with other salons that offer haircuts, it is still possible that you won’t be satisfied with the service.

To help avoid that, here are a few things that you should do before booking a haircut at Planet Fitness.

Check The Salon And Stylist

If you are picky with who touches or cuts your hair, it is best to check the salon and meet with the stylist first before you book for a slot.

You may even watch them cut other people’s hair first if you want so you can see how they work.

Ask Other’s Experience

Personally, I had a good experience with the haircut from the salon at Planet Fitness. It’s hard to beat free! However, obviously, a lot depends on the individual stylist at the branch you choose. It’s a great idea to ask others in your local branch what their experience is.

Read Reviews Online

Aside from asking around, you can also know about other people’s experiences by reading reviews online. Planet Fitness has its own website and other social media sites too.

Some people might have posted their experience with the Planet Fitness haircut on various social media platforms. Try looking for them on Facebook, Twitter, or even Reddit.
