I am getting a haircut in a friend’s home this weekend. She is a hair stylist, but she is not currently working in a salon. She only has a couple years experience and we live in a moderately priced area. How much should I expect to pay her?
I’ll ask her, when I get there, but I want to make sure to bring enough cash. Plus if she tells me too low of a price, I’d give her more. What do you think would be appropriate?

@edub: What area of the world do you live in? I live in NC and I use to charge 25 dollars to go to a woman’s home and cut her hair. My haircuts included a wash, shampoo & conditioner (I brought my own), and blow dry. I charged 10-15 bucks for men depending upon what they wanted. If someone came to me I charged 20 for a female cut and 10 for a male cut. I have been a stylist for 5 years. I also used my own products. Haircuts in an upscale salon here with a junior stylist are 30 bucks.

My hair lady charges $45 for a cut and $100 for cut and highlights. We’re in Alabama. I used to have to pay over $200 for cut and highlights in Hawaii. Really depends on the place.

@edub: When you say you live in a moderately priced location, that doesn’t help very much because we all consider moderately priced to mean something different.
I’m from Michigan, so most things here are dirt cheap compared to other places. I always go to the salon & get a wash, deep condition treatment, hair cut, blow dry, & straighten, and my total comes to $25, but I always give my stylist $30. She has been cutting hair for something like 5 years.
Idk what is normal for your area, but if someone was making a house call & had limited experience, I wouldn’t be willing to pay more than $35.
