I was sitting here thinking...I wonder what people pay for a hair cut world wide. As some of you know I keep mine pretty short which means a cut about every four weeks.
The charge is $17.00 with out the tip. The amount sure adds up over a year.

So for those of you who have your hair cut..men and women what do you pay your hair care professional to cut your hair?

I pay 15.00 for a dry cut. I keep mine cut short and it grows really fast and is thick. The lady that cuts my hair also texturizes it for me. She says I have enough hair for 3 people. Maybe I could sell it! biggrin.gif

I knew it.. I'm getting hosed, She does wash it but charges more if she blows it dry. Or adds any products. So I usually leave with a wet head in single digit weather. And scratch from the hair that is stuck in my shirt...

Are mens haircuts about the same anyone know?

Thatís funny Rindy, because the last time I got my hair cut, (by a Pro) it cost me $30 dollars, which worked out to be around 3 dollars a minute, (I know because I clocked it).
Anyway, itís been some three years now, and Iíve have to say. That nothing pleases me more, then tapping on my X Barbers window, and waving my long hair at him, (and you know he always gives me foul hand signal).

When I was on active duty, it was about $3 on base, add in a tip to make it a fiver. Hair cuts once a week made that $20 a month. After the service, $10 plus tip twice a month for $25. Now, I cut it myself. Figure $70-$100 for a decent pair of clippers. I've had my current pair for about a year and a half right now. Back to one haircut every 7-10 days. Average cost $2 per cut.

I usually have colour done whenever I go but yesterday I asked my stylist what she charges for just a cut since one of my daughters wants hers done. Her price is $20. When I get colour, cut, and dry it's $52 and next month, watch out, if I decide to get my highlights, too, it's going to be $110. I may have to save up for two months in order to be able to afford that. No wonder I haven't had highlights done since November of 06!

$10 bucks at cost cutters. Extra 3 or 4 if I want a shampoo. That usually get my hair thinned out too because its really thick. Most of the others around here are about the sameprice. Our lowest used to be "Two minute Tony" a former army barber. His haircuts went for $5 and it was a pretty decent job.

For me to spend more than $15 on a haircut would be pure folly. I keep it short enough that a few swipes with clippers for someone who has an idea how to use them gets me though it and on to their next customer quickly.

I don't have enough hair to try to style it or anything like that, and if I let it grow to a point where that would be worth trying it would just curl up and be most disagreeable.

My STBX wife pays $80-120 every 8-10 weeks and I never notice anything different. She acts like it's a radical change and says people comment to her at her office. I do not believe I have ever once received a comment about a haircut at my offfice, or heard a comment directed toward anyone else about theirs. What would you say? And how would you respond?

Everybody has to get haircuts, so what's the point of yapping about it?

My son is 8 and now wants shaggy hair like the teenagers. Whatever. Looks hot and bothersome to me, and his stays snaggly because he is in a chlorinated swimming pool 4 days a week. But it's his hair, I'm not worrying about it. He found a picture of me from 1978 when my classmates called me 'mop-head,' so what can I say?

First, understand that I am a cheap Scotsman. I have clippers (I inherited from my father, so didn't cost me anything) and buzz my head about once every two or three months. It stays short and doesn't bother me and costs nothing. Will admit that thirty-five years ago my hair was half way to my rear end. Now all I care about is comfort. Makes my wife mad, she says my hair is "beautiful", but when you look like the south end of a north bound mule, what difference does hair make?

This is all so interesting. If I was a man I think I would have it buzz cut myself...even though I like long hair on a man...

my husband inherited clippers, too. He has this gorgeous white-blond curly hair, but decided a few years back that it was too much trouble. Told me to clipper it off for him. I told him I'd never even touched a set of clippers before and was scared to death. He informed me that it is impossible to shave a man's head badly. I proved him wrong. poster_oops.gif
