Budget haircuts worth it?

SuperCuts/Fantastic Sam's/Rudy's/Hairmasters/ZeroZero - economical choice for a stylish haircut, or potential follicular nightmare?
I need a haircut, a dramatic one, but I am stone broke right now. I want to go from hair that's about 1/3 way down my back, nicely layered, to hair that's only about as long as the bottom of my earlobes, which I'd still like layered.
My real question is - am I REALLY getting a much better haircut if I pay $50 than if I pay $20-25 at a place like Supercuts? I've had about 5 shitty $50-60 cuts in a row, so I tend to think not, but maybe I'm just unlucky.
Is going to a place that charges so little for a cut a mistake waiting to happen, or have I been brainwashed by the fancy salon industry? How can they charge so little when other places charge so damn much?
PS - I'm in Seattle if anyone has a specific cheapass hair place/stylist they swear by.
