I went returned to my old salon last night for a color and trim. The salons are always SO vague on their pricing because it varies on your hair length and what you’re having done. I couldn’t believe it when I went to leave and she told me it was $100. I have been feeling guilty ever since. How much do you typically pay for a cut and color?

@Kristen0160: $37 for a cut and $10 to color my own.

Hair-trim/styling at a more expensive salon since it has to do with my “wedding hair” – $60.
Regular hair-cut at a more casual salon – around $20.

@Kristen0160: $70 but since I am growing out for the wedding and she isn’t cutting it lately it’s been $50. But life and wedding planning are plotting against me and the grey is coming IN so instead of my old 7 or more weeks it’s been pushing it at 6 weeks. & I still feel guilty!

You ladies are getting deals! It’s almost 100 bucks just to get my hair cut. I wait a long time before cuts though. Only hair color is about 150 for flamboyage so it’s not my entire hair and I get a bit of a discount for being friendly with my colorist.

For cut AND color, $100 is a steal in my opinion. I pay $90 for a cut and around $150 for partial highlights.

Cut and full color or major highlights -$180 in downtown Vancouver.

@Kristen0160: I don’t color my hair, but I just got a cut/shampoo/blow dry (flat) for $50, minus the tip.
My FMIL gets all that, plus highlights & lowlights for ~$200.

In our area, you would “never” get out of a salon (other than maybe Super Cuts or Great Clips) with a cut and color for under $120.
I went to a salon handful of times that was charging me nearly $300 for my full highlights. After letting me spend a shameful amount of money there, my FI casually said “you know my friend does hair, right?” Um, no FI…I was not aware of that.
So I make an appointment with his friend, and the prices I received from the receptionist were $50 cut+$120 color+$40 blow dry, totaling $210; not a hell of a lot better than before.
However, when I went to check out, my bill was $75…and has been ever since, thanks to FI’s friend (whom I over-tip for his trouble, of course).
So do not feel bad about $100 for a cut and color 🙂

$130 for cut & color… then i usually leave a $20 tip. So i always expect to spend $150. For the quality i get, I wouldnt pay any less!!

Wow, I had no idea getting hair done was so expensive, however take my opinion with a grain of salt, I don’t own a hairbrush/comb or hair dryer.

@Kristen0160: I pay anywhere between $120-200 for a cut and color and/or highlights. I won’t go anywhere that charges less than $50 for a cut.

$100 + tip for cut every 12-16 weeks. I get balayage highlights once a year, and I can’t remember how much it costs – probably in the ballpark of $250-300.
Walking into any random salon where I live will cost you $60+ for a cut by a very junior stylist (no thanks). A decent haircut is at the very least $80+.

@Kristen0160: With tip $225.00.
I live in a rather pricey area salon wise and the lady I see is the “queen of reds” so she really goes to town with the shades, foils and glazes. She is worth every penny!
