    I voted $40-50 (including tip) because I have thick, curly hair. I need the thinning shears! So everywhere I’ve lived, I have found someone who can/will thin it out, do it well, and stuck with them! Just has worked out that my stylist is in the $40-50 range, although I will say I am not very willing to go much higher than that.

    I pay $75. But, I live in a big city and everything is expensive here. I tried going to a few different cheaper places and they butchered me….so $75 it is!

    I just go to a place in the mall and depending what I’m getting done it’s almost always under $50. Just a cut? Around $20. Wash, cut, blow-dry? $45 ish. For my wedding hair I’m going to a salon in my hometown. The owner is good friends with my mom so I’m sure I can get a deal there. If not, updos are only about $45 there. No big deal.

    My Fiance went to get his hair cut in a actual hair salon for the first time last year (he always went to like, First Choice or barber-shop places like that) and thought he got a great deal because he got a cut and style for $95. Oh I laughed so hard at that before schooling him on more inexpensive options.

    I pay around $160-$180 for a good cut and highlights!  It’s expensive…but so worth it to me 🙂

    My last haircut cost me $5 because my friend cut it and she didn’t let me pay but she would let me give her a tip.

    Normally I will pay $20 – $30 for a cut. I am very frugal.

    $140 but that is in NYC and for a “curly specialist” at a salon that caters to curly girls. It’s expensive, but definitely worth it to not have to get another horrible haircut done by someone who doesn’t understand my hair.

    $25 including tip – I got to the Paul Mitchell School so they only charge $12.50 for the hair cut. Ive always had a good cut from them. I tip them really well because they don’t get paid.

    Usually, between 50 – 60 dollars. However, I just got my haircut for free!! I signed up for the bumble model project and they picked my hair!

    I also go to a cheap mall place because I don’t do much to my hair to make it worth paying for. I wear my hair very long and with minimal layers and side swept bangs, not exactly the kind of cut that requires precision or anything. Also, I don’t heat style my hair except for very rare special occasions, so it is generally healthy and easy to manage (albeit a stubborn and annoying texture haha) so I’d rather spend a little more money on nice shampoo and conditioner for the day to day than spend a lot on a trim. I also live in a more rural area with a lower cost of living. I paid $30 for trim, eyebrow wax and tip.

    $70 ($60 plus tip) for cut and highlights with the same lady I’ve been going to for 10 years. She’s a steal, and I can’t bring myself to pay anymore. I already think it is a splurge.

    $55 including tip. I only go every three months, though. I stretch it as long as possible which I know isn’t good, but I don’t want to pay that much more often.

    It’s usually about $35 for a wash, cut, and style. I usually get highlights too which makes a trip to the salon expensive! 

    I just switched jobs to do what I love [but make less money] so I sacrficed my nice trips to the salon every 8 weeks to dye it at home and get cheaper haircuts : (
