I have made a discovery! The maintenance costs of my sons are much higher than the maintenance costs of my daughters. Because my boys have actual dos, whereas the girls simply want long hair thereby saving me tons of money by seldom visiting the hairdresser. The same goes for me: I’ve been succesfully sporting The Cheap, also known as Long Hair That Could Do With a Trim for nine years now.
I consider myself a loyal and gentle person, but my persona of client at the hairdresser is very easily offended. And since I’m too cowardly to speak up when I feel mistreated, I’m very promiscuous when it comes to hairdressers. There are hairdressers who are late for my appointment, hairdressers who offer terrible, cheap coffee and hairdressers who use water that’s way too hot. Afterwards I’ll pay them, smiling a friendly smile, while I’m thinking: ‘Never again!’
This promiscuity has offered me lots of information about different hair dressing salons and their prices. The cheapest hairdresser I came across charged 23$ for a haircut, and the most expensive one charged 35$.
But the cheapest of them all is my husband: he simply shaves his head until there’s nothing left.
How much do you pay for a haircut?
