How much do you pay for haircuts?

I never went over $35 until a friend treated me to Vidal Sassoon haircut ($125). This guy was so amazing. I've never had such a good haircut. Honestly? I think $125 is a high price, but every 6-8 weeks seems affordable.

10 bucks. I go to a barber.

by Anonymousreply 103/17/2013

$20 including tip.

And no, bitches, I'm not in flyoverland.

And I'm sure my $20.00 haircut looks every bit as good the $125.00 cut.

Apprently OP has money to burn.

I give myself a buzzcut every two weeks with my Vidal Sassoon clipper.

My place went up at Christmas last year -- $17 at a "family haircutters" type place.

I told the "barbarina" in whose chair I was seated to cut it all off like I had been inducted into the Marines.

When I left, I said, "See you in June!"

I get great cuts at Super Cuts! My hair is PERFECT! No bikini waxes though...

In Chinatown in Toronto, tons of places you can get a cheap $8.00 haircut.

I think it makes sense to pay more for things that affect your everyday look -- haircut, shoes, glasses, etc. I love my hair guy and the job he does so I don't mind paying $120. I have found a difference between his work and when I went to a less expensive place.

Eight dollars plus two dollar tip in Brooklyn -- shaved like a Marine. Lasts six-seven weeks.

I highly doubt there is much, if any, correlation between the price of a haircut and its final result. I've gotten great haircuts at cheap places, and terrible haircuts at more expensive places. It's the PERSON that cuts your hair--not the price you pay or the place you go.

£47 plus £8 for a tip. And worth every damn penny.

by Anonymousreply 1203/17/2013

$18 at the Hair Cuttery.

by Anonymousreply 1303/17/2013

$15 at TGI Haircutters.

I've tried the expensive stuff, but it's just a complete waste of money for me. My hair cut is so simple, and never takes more than 10 minutes total.

And the expensive ones were never noticeably better than the cheap ones. At least on me.

People with a lot of hair, or a complex hair style, or even just "difficult hair" might benefit. But I sure don't.

$25 plus $5 tip at the barbershop at the studio where I work. It costs more than I'd pay if I had it done elsewhere, but it's worth it to be able to walk down the street at lunch time and be done in 15 minutes.

I pay 10.00 with a 5.00 tip. Ten bucks is really cheap in Santa Monica, so I tip him half the original. He is one of the most conscientious barbers/hair cutter I've been to in a long time.

I used to go to a guy in WeHo, who charged me $125 at a top salon. Cool place, lots of name dropping. Then one day, I called , and couldn't get the appt. time I wanted . I got pissed off, and drove to a Supercuts. Guy gave me a great haircut, for $18.00. I've never gone back to the salon, where the attitude could have shaded a whole park. Now I think , fuck those chi-chi hair places. It's the same way I began going to TJ Maxx / Marshalls ,etc. instead of Macy's, Nordstroms - the atmosphere is not as nice, but your paying half, or less, than you would - and the customer service is non existant now anyway.

$12 plus a $10 tip on Vermont across from LA City College. Old fashion barber shop that does a great job. Kind of a scary blue collar part of town.

by Anonymousreply 1903/17/2013

$70 - and that's for a housecall on a weekend. I have very difficult-to-cut hair; it's curly and grows in some areas more quickly than others. My stylist knows it well and knows how to cut it so I won't need to see her again for at least two months, sometimes three. Yes, I live in "flyover land."

by Anonymousreply 2003/17/2013

$20, three times a year.

I have long hair (a nice, thick, glossy, light red), and the cut is the easy part.

by Anonymousreply 2103/17/2013

I have two choices: a) buzzcut + beard trim combo for $15 plus tip; b) beard trim for $6, where a buzz cut runs $12 (I think it is), no combo discount.

Joint A is across town in place with a staff of barbers, some of whom are better than others, random luck as to who is on duty (or particularly available if they're busy) when I drop by.

Joint B is a solo guy who practically trims each beard hair separately; I feel guilty giving him a $2 tip (though $3 on a $6 charge is too splashy). On the other hand, the spendy buzz cut upcharge seems awfully high when it takes under five minutes for my male pattern bald self.

by Anonymousreply 2203/17/2013

For women, it makes sense to spend on expensive haircuts, but for men with short cuts, it makes no sense at all. You can't tell the difference between a $125 short cut from a $15 Supercut.

I cut my own hair. I got a buzzer at Target and it pays for itself. #3 on the sides and back, scissor cut in the front.

All these guys getting marine cuts every six months for 10 dollars at the "barber" are probably all around 70.

All these guys getting buzzcuts, why don't you just buy a buzzer at Target? It'll save you a lot of money in the long run.

R27 - my head hair (opposed to my beard) grows in slowly enough that having the barber deal with it a few times a year is just plain easier.

by Anonymousreply 2903/17/2013

$13 at SuperCuts, not including tip. I'm in my early 20s and my hair has been shedding like crazy for the past year. I've been agonizing over it until I finally took the dive and bought generic minoxidil. Been on it for less than two months and not just starting to see less shedding in the past week.

Hope I don't jinx it just typing this. The downside is the dandruff-bordering-on-psoriasis, thick, wet flakes. I'll take that over a receding hairline, though!

You queens are deluding yourself if you think people can't tell the difference between a $10 and $40 haircut.

$15 + $5 tip at Master Cuts knockoff Super Cuts in MA.

Remember several years ago when Jennifer Aniston caused a stir when it was revealed that she couldn't do without her personal stylist while promoting MARLEY & ME in England, so she had him flown first class to London on a seven-day all expenses paid trip and put up in a posh hotel. Just so he could blow dry and squirt her hair with hairspray every morning to give her that "everyday look." The whole thing ended up costing her $56,000 that week. So ridiculous!

$125, I am a woman and I think it's pricey but that is the going rate.

$90, about every 5 weeks. I'm a male.

He's been cutting my hair for 16 years. He gives me an excellent cut that grows out well, so I don't have to do it more often. He always has a slot for me, will do a free fix a few days after if there's something I want him to tweak.

25 bucks, and that includes a tip, every 6 weeks. Haircut; beard trim; and various "other" hair trims. Ain't ear and nose hair disgusting? He runs a 2-man shop, but I never let the other guy touch me(he's OK, but I feel and look better with the owner) The shop is incredibly crowded, and open just 3 days each week. I get there about 30 minutes before he opens, and sometimes I'm not the 1st one in the chair. Hey, when you're good you're good. Bless you Sal, may you live forever.

No one can tell how much your haircut is. If I look at all my male coworkers, I wouldn't be able to tell who cut their own hair, who paid $10, and who paid $100.

by Anonymousreply 5807/07/2013

I have very thick, very wiry, very unruly hair. It not cut well, it looks like a tumbleweed. Also, my hair grows extremely quickly - over 1 inch a month. These combined make an excellent cut necessary.

For me, I cannot get a Supercuts hair cut. The cut neither lays right, nor grows out well. I end up with too much bulk and no shape - the previously mentioned tumbleweed.

The last time I went to a lame cutter (I was traveling abroad for 6-weeks for work), it took another two months of cuts from my normal guy for it to grow out.

I do believe a good cut makes a difference and there is a correlation between cost and quality of cut. I've never had a good cheap cut, but I've also had many expensive bad cuts.

Oh, I pay $120 in NYC.

Twenty bucks and a tip - and the barber is so damned good that they actually named the street after him, and the wall in his shop is filled with pictures of Presidents and Supreme Court Justices whose heads he's the pleasure to know. And heads of state. And Ambassadors. And Senators and Congressmen.

People in DC know who I'm talking about.

I think folks need to post where they live that they're getting these $8-$10 cuts. They can't be living in major metropolitan areas for the most part (not that there's anything wrong with that.)

I live in DC. And FWIW, I don't know who [r63] is talking about.

I clipped my dog's hair over the summer. While cleaning the clippers, I decided to clean up over my ears with a #2 guard. It looked silly, so I did the whole head.

Now, once a month I clip everything down and clean up my neck using two mirrors.

I love being old.

I'm female. I pay around $25 at Supercuts plus $5-10 tip depending on how much I like the job. I have had expensive haircuts ($120-180) and really can't see the difference. My hair is a very basic style (blunt cut, shoulder blade length,side bangs) and easy to manage--I'm out of there in 20 minutes.
