How About a Free Haircut?

For the past several years, I've been getting my hair cut at the Supercuts salon in Scarborough, Maine.  Why?  Because I'm on a limited budget, and although the salons in theWalmart stores are inexpensive, I've not always been happy with the results.

 Even though I seldom have the same stylist each time at Supercuts, they have all left me happy with their work.  My hair is straight as nails.   When I was working, I used to get perms at Walmart and my cuts at Supercuts.  (Supercuts salons do not do perms.)  With my now reduced income due to retirement, I decided perms were a luxury I could no longer afford.  At Supercuts, the stylists know how to cut my hair so it looks like it has body and some wave.  They work magic!

To my surprise I received an email from a woman from a public relations company that works with Supercuts, asking me if I would like to have two $50 gift cards to for me, and one to give away to my readers!  Only twice in nearly two years and 730 posts have I featured a giveaway on my blog. 

Some of you may remember the men's swimsuit calendar I gave away which I had purchased in support of the local county Chamber of Commerce fundraiser; 

also, I gave away a jar of Baconnaise from Baron Bob's.

I don't solicit giveaways, but I could use a couple of free, quality haircuts, and I'm sure some of you out there could, too.  And this giveaway isn't just for women.  Mr. Eva, and many other men get their hair cut at Supercuts. So, guys, feel free to jump in on this, too.

I thought you might be interested in learning about an exciting promotion Supercuts is hosting with ESPN - hooking up a lucky winner with a trip for 2 to the ESPYs on July 13, 2011. The package includes a grand prize of a 3-day/2-night trip for two to Los Angeles, CA to attend the 2011 ESPY Awards and Supercuts makeover ($200 value). The prize includes round trip tickets for two to Los Angeles, CA and a hotel room for both nights.

To enter for a chance to win you simply go to their Facebook page (, and click the Sweepstakes tab. Also on their Sweepstakes tab, they will also be hosting weekly “Superconfident” Sweepstakes for fans to enter for a chance to win other great prizes:

· Week 1 – (May 16 – May 22) - $250 gift card to Ticketmaster and a $50 Supercuts gift card

· Week 2 – (May 23 – May 29 ) - $200 Sports Authority gift card and $50 Supercuts gift card

· Week 3 – (May 30 – June 5) - $100 Local sports bar/restaurant gift card and a $50 Supercuts gift card

· Week 4 – (June 6 – June 12) - Video game console and a $50 Supercuts gift card

· Week 6 – (June 20 – July 26) - Video game system and a $50 Supercuts gift card

Dummy me, I had never heard of the Espys!  I assumed that because it was cosponsored by Supercuts , that it was some kind of hair show.  Mr. Eva heard my tell my sister on the phone that I wasn't going to enter that contest because I wasn't that keen on flying clear across the country to go to a hair show, and he said, "The hell you aren't!  You most certainly had better enter."  Then he told me about the Espys!  Needless to say, as much as I enjoy basketball and baseball, I have entered!  I positively go faint picturing the possibility that I could see Ray Allen, Paul Pierce, or Dwayne Wade in person!  (Be still my heart!)  Click on this link if you're not familiar with the Espys.

To enter my giveaway for a $50 gift card to Supercuts, comment below, by clicking where it says "Spectator Shouts,  letting me know you want to win.  That's it; no hoops to jump through!  I'll announce the winner next Thursday, May 26th.

I would so like to win. But I don't live in your part of the world. the travel itself would create havoc with my budget. :-)

Anyways, nice to know this is your first giveaway. :-)

In a previous life I did hair :). I have a really great woman who does my hair about twice a year. But how sweet of you to do this give-away!

Hi Eva, I've been thinking of you and Mr. Eva and hoping all's going well.

I'm pretty sure we don't have Supercuts in our area but thanks for the offer.

Hi Eva, Don't enter me in the giveaway. I just wanted to let you know that you and Mr. Eva are both in my prayers every day.

No need to enter me in the contest. I'm very folicularly-challenged, so the prize would be better for someone else.

I just stopped by to say "Thank You!" - long overdue - for your contribution to my 'roast' at Knucklehead's place. You're one of the good ones, and I don't often enough tell folks such things when they are. So, I'm telling you.

Have a great day!

Sure, throw my name into the hat. I see Supercuts all over the US. It's hit or miss for me wherever I get MY hair cut!

Bit far from me to travel. Would make it the most expensive haircut ever for me. It's a long way form Ireland to Maine.
Thinking of you and Mr. Eva.
