    How much does a haircut cost?

    How much do you spend on a haircut? Is $100 reasonable including tip?

    I pay 69 plus an 11 dollar tip. Her prices have gone up over the years but she does a better job than anyone.

      haha I saw the OP and I was like Took me a second to realize I had a TOTALLY different perspective.

      As a guy, a haircut be as little as free (clippers in the backyard), $6 for a low-cost barber, or $10-$12 for most barbers I see. But then, I get a haircut every month, so I spend $140/yr, whereas I know most of you ladies only need a cut every 4-6 months (if even that)

      After my initial reaction, I just had to comment... hahaha

        Yep, when my hair is grown out in a longer style I can go 6 months between. Working on growing it back out now, and my stylist has me come in for quick trims every month or so which she does not charge me for, but I tip her.

        My husband goes to the same girl and spends $45 including tip. She also does a free trim for him in between, so he gets 6 cuts a year. She is the only person who has done a consistently good job on his hair as well, I have to say. Plus she refers a lot of her clients to me for massage, and comes to see me for massage twice a month.

          I'd say that's insane, but that's just my personal opinion.

          I've cut my own hair for years, so other than the initial $30 investment for the clippers, I spend $0.

          My wife also cuts her own hair most of the time. She will occasionally go over to Hair Cuttery and get it trimmed and layered. She may do that twice a year. I think it's about $20 with tip when she does that so that would be a total of $40/year.

          If she ever came home and told me she spent $100 on a haircut, we'd be having a serious discussion.

            Wow, $100 made me stop and think too. I prefer to cut my own hair because it pretty much assures me that I'm going to get what I want without having to pay someone money to pretend their cutting my hair like I want it. I'd say skip out on the trims with a stylist and do them yourself. I guess if you're getting business out of the deal too then it isn't too bad.

              I cannot do trims myself and wouldn't even try. I'd be better off skipping the trims altogether.

                $10-$12 at my local barber. I usually tip a couple bucks and get a cut every 5-6 weeks. He'll sometimes do a hot lather shave on the back of my neck if business is slow.

                  My wife was a liscenced hairdresser before realizing she could make alot more money in the corporate world and no longer work nights and weekends.

                  We now have a hair salon room in our basement with a shampoo bowl, styling chair, drying chair, stuff to do nails, color hair, etc.

                  I havent paid for a haircut in 20 years and none of our 4 kids have ever been to a barber or salon. Its a pretty good deal for us, and mom likes keeping her family looking good.

                    I've been cutting my own hair for the last few years. Typically every 10-14 days, it grows fast
                    Before that, my friends did it. I think the last time I paid someone was 11 or 12 years ago.

                      $10 total, which includes a $4 tip and she does an excellent job. I entertain her, so she takes a little extra time with my hair. : )

                        DH spends $20/haircut at his barber.

                        I'm another story, but I do go less often.
                        I spend $140 for combo color highlights (gotta hide the grays) and cut, plus tip. I don't remember how it breaks down, but more of the cost goes to the highlights - I think the cut is in the $60 range.

                          I invested in a clipper and now my wife cuts it for free.

                            When I'm up to it I cut hubbies hair but usually he just whacks at it whenever parts of it are bothering him. Because I can no longer hold my hands over my head for more than a few seconds I go to the hairdressers. I have to get trimmed about every 6 weeks since I can't blow dry my hair or do anything with it other than a quick brush or comb a decent rim makes it look like I tried, although this past winter I went 6 months without a trim due to weather and health problems. By then I was looking like the business end of a mop! So that first apt. in a long while cost $57 for shampoo, cut, highlights (don't usually do that), blow dry, and that included a tip. The rest of the time I get a wash and trim for $24 including tip. When I become a billionaire I will hire her to come to my house every day and do my hair! I went most of my life with haircuts from mom or I did it myself. I did have to go once this winter for just a shampoo as the joints on my hands were so swollen and inflamed that the pain was too much for me to wash my own hair. Going to the hairdresser is my luxury since many things in life are cut off from me these days, but I sure would never spend $100 on it.
