How much do you pay for a haircut

susancnwsusancnw Posts: 1,374Registered Users Curl Novice
and how often? (Mods, if this is the wrong forum, please move to correct one) Just wondering a bit at the different prices around the country.

    I usually pay around $50-$60(prior to tip) with a Deva trained stylist. I thought it was a bargain - she spent about 2 hours on me between cutting dry - then wetting/conditioning/styling - under the heat lamps and then doing some touch ups!

    I've spent $50 - $80 locally, $145 at the Devachan Salon in Soho, deva cuts are definitely the way to go for curls, IMO.

    ETA: I'll be going back in July, then again in Nov. for Rosie's cuts.

    $40- $60, about 3 times a year. Next week I'm getting a Deva cut, so it may be more?

    About $90 for a Deva-trained stylist cut once every six months or so.

    $50 plus tip for single process color and cut. I go every 4-5 weeks because my hair grow so fast that my roots look horrible at 4 weeks. Also, I'm keeping my hair just at shoulder length (when curly) in the front. Getting it trimmed every time helps keep it there.
    Couple of inches past shoulder length 3A. Shampoo every 3rd or 4th day w/ baby shampoo; Tigi Fashionista conditioner; back to Condition 3-in-1 mousse . Alternate days water rinse, conditioner and mousse.

    I go only once a month to get roots covered (that must mean i'm older) and only once every 4 months to the Curly Hair Institute for a tunnel cut. When i go and get my roots done they only charge me for the colouring - around $30 - since I walk out of the salon with dripping hair. (yes even in the winter.) I live in a very small town - and no one can cut curly hair - so I went to them and asked if they would be just willing to colour.......and voila $30 every 5 weeks.

    I'm in TX. I have a local (not Deva) stylist who does a great job on my long layers. (She loves curls even though she doesn't have them herself.) I spend around $50 (including tip) for a haircut.

    I trim 2-3 times a year.

    I pay $65 (not including tip). I live in the Dallas area. I get my hair cut maybe 3 times a year, so I have no problem spending the money to see someone who does a good job. I've been going to my stylist for 7 years now, and he's wonderful!

    Oh I just don't!! If I went to the salon, it would run me about $50 - $60, and I would come home hating the job he/she did, and I'd end up fixing it myself.

    I trim about every 3 to 4 months.

    I live in the Bay Area/East Bay of California. I just found a good stylist (not a Deva trained stylist or anything) at Changes Salon who has mindblowingly beautiful curls herself. She charged me $47 for a wash/cut/slight diffusing. I was extremely pleased :toothy7: I never used to get my hair cut regularly, but this year, I will, and shall return to Natasha every 8 weeks, I think.

    Another salon in San Francisco charged me $80 for a cut; she was great, but I think that it's overpriced now. That same salon has an amazing colorist though and I return for him.

    Hey, CurlyinCO. I've been going to Julia at Shapes. I think we might have talked about this when I was trying to decide about going there and you said you had seen someone else there. I saw Richelle (the owner) once but we didn't really click. But I met Julia that day and I've seen her twice since then. She does a great job. I sent my sister to her and she loves her too. I even like the way she styles my hair and that's a first for me! You should give her a try!

    I pay $49 for cut and root touch-up (not including tip) about every 8 weeks in Alabama.

    BRANDYC and BAMACURLYQ, are you by chance in the B'ham area? If so, where do you get your hair cut and who does it? My stylist is so swamped that I *almost* had to switch when she said she couldn't fit me in for about 3 weeks. :shock: She had a cancellation and squeezed me in, but after that, I feel like I need a "backup."

    I have paid anywhere between $30 and $90 here in the SF Bay area. The lower end was a regular cut, no styling. The Highest was my devacut.

    Yeah, a local girl! Where do you live? So cool -- and what a small world :blob7: I checked out your photos -- you have great hair, very pretty too.

    Changes Salon is in Walnut Creek; my stylist is Natasha; with wash/cut/style/light diffusing = $47. In San Fran, I went to the Patrick Evan Salon and saw Vonia; wash/cut/style = $80. (When I say she was overpriced, the $80 is actually her normal price, but compared to Natasha, it's a little hefty.)

    Now, because I like getting a blow-out every once in a while (hold your stones! LOL), I ask my stylists to cut my hair so I can wear it both curly and straight. Natasha and Vonia both knew how to cut curls, though it wasn't a strictly-for-curls cut. But, honestly, they're both confident wielding their scissors and curls don't scare them. While Vonia was very good, she took a lot of the "poof" (the extra body) out of my hair, which I felt later, made it somewhat too thinned out. It still looked great though in curls. Natasha left my hair naturally thick, like I asked, and just layered it nicely. So, either way, you win with these talented women :thumright: Both have easy-going, non-overly-chatty personalities, which I like too. Let me know if you ever visit either of them!

    I might have to try them also. That's a pretty good price. I'm in FC and don't really have a regular one, although I did try someone over at one of our Aveda salons and I like the way it looked and the way it has grown out...at for $20 (inc tip) I can train her as we go. She graduated from the school where I get my hair colored, then Aveda trained for almost a year in Denver. I do need to get back for a cut.

    I can remember paying $40+tip years ago when I lived in Houston. I used blow dryer and hot rollers then and he knew how to cut my hair.
