It’s a busy haircut place and they’re open 7 days a week. Only thing I would recommend to them is to have a clipboard and let people sign in. It lets new customers know how long the wait is and what number they are in line. Welcuts on Patterson Drive SW is located in a busy strip along with a Shell gas station, 7 Eleven, Alterations, Poco Loco pizza and Schooner’s Pub.

You can see from the banner on the door that they are a startup. Using Vistaprint for free business cards and cheap banners, Welcuts is well on their way to being a profitable haircut and beauty salon. They charge $17.95 for men’s cut and $20.95 for ladies’ cut. A bang trim is $6.00.

On Sunday, they were in full force with 3 hairdressers on the floor. There was a constant stream of new customers from 12 noon to 1:00pm. Customers peeked in and saw people waiting did not go pass the doorway, turned around and headed for their cars. There’s no reception and people just don’t want to wait. But they’re too busy to tell them that it’s no more than a 10 minute wait because they’re fast workers.

One thing I did observe, everyone takes haircutting for granted. If you want a haircut, please tell them what you want. Don’t just sit there and expect them to shave it off. How much do you want should be stated upfront. If you want layering, say so. If you want a shampoo, say so. They can’t read your minds!
