When I used to have it done, it was $225, and tbh, it looked like poop. She went way too overboard.

I live in Pittsburgh, and when I get my hair cut and highlighted, my stylist charges around $125.

I think like everything else it varies.  I paid $75 + tip on Tuesday when I had my above shoulder length hair highlighted which was $20 cheaper than before the wedding when it was much longer.  Since you are in MI, I’m trying to remember but I think I paid around the same thing the few times I had it done in Royal Oak, MI (over a year ago).

I have thick hair down to my bra strap and I pay $45 for a FULL HEAD of highlights. I go to a beauty school. =]

I’d easily pay $150 now, in the midwest, for my ridiculously long thick hair. Back in Cali, more like $250. I also get toned every single time and I get a chem shot to keep my color. I have lots and lots of multi-tonal colors in my hair. It looks so blah otherwise.

I got it done at a nice salon (I have medium to long-ish hair, about 4 inches past my collarbone) and it was $200 before tip. It did take forever, though, as she did a lot of foils. 

One plus of highlighting – it lasts a LOT longer than a normal dye job in my hair, and tends to look more natural, whereas dye just fades and looks washed-out on me.

I was just thinking the same thing about fiftyfootbride…you are so cute and I love having a face to the name!!! I really hope that you are accepted as a BEE!! 🙂

My hair usually costs around $130 for highlights, coloring in between the highlights, and a trim. It’s expensive, but I always feel SO much better after getting my hair done.

Do you have any salon schools near you? Seirously they are cheap!? and i’ve never had it messed up….the instructor checks off every step. Yeah it takes a *little* longer (i always get a girl ready to graduate within a year) but it’s just like 1/3 cheaper and I can’t say no. But now my fave girl has graduated. Sigh.
