To me that sounds way too much to add for layers, granted I’m in Ontario so I don’t know if thats the regional norm for you.

To me 60 dollars is not that much for a really good hair cut. I say go for it if its going to improve your over all hair style on your wedding day Smile

I am ok with spending $100 on a haircut if i come out looking like a million bucks.  My experience has been that if i pay for a $15 haircut, then I get a $15 haircut.

I get my haircut once or twice a year tho so i dont mind spending on it.

I think that’s an average wash/cut/style at most places… I’m used to $20 Fantastic Sam’s cuts 🙂  I was pretty surprised when I went to a Supercuts last week for a 2″ trim on most of my hair and much more (about 6″) around the front that had a lot of split ends it was $46!!!  I got charged more because my hair is “long” by their standards.  Had I realized how much I wouldn’t have had them blow dry it.  And probably not even cut 🙂

@Tswife4ever: Not really. My haircuts range from $60-$90 depending on the salon, the stylist’s experience, and whether or not I have booked using a discount website (like lifebooker, groupon, etc).

$60 is on the low end for me, but I am in NYC.

$60 for a cut is not unreasonable (for me, I am not sure about in Cali… I would have guessed they cost more!). I’m glad she’s offering the trial again for free- you shouldn’t have to pay for it since it was her lack of styling OR lack of explaining as to why curls wouldn’t work for you. A stylist should be able to evaluate your hair before doing anything to it and know what will work and what won’t, seems odd that she didn’t recognize your hair type as being a difficult one to curl.

Yeah um, that’s way too much money, even for a full haircut imo.  But, I know that salons will try to upcharge, which is why I go to the Fila Academy to get my hair done

I pay $75 plus tip for my haircuts. It’s a really nice salon in Boston, but that’s average to below average. $15 haircuts scare me. Been there, have the bad pictures to prove it ;-).

That’s right around what I’ve always paid for a quality hair cut!  My current place charges $55.

ETA: At some point in my distant past, I used to do the cheap $15 haircuts.  And my hair got messed up over and over as a result.  Started going to a quality place and finally started gettting quality haricuts.  Never again with a $15 salon touch my hair. 🙂

That doesn’t really sound expensive to me. I pay somewhere around 110-120 for a cut/color. I don’t know how much it is without the color, but I think 50ish? so 60 doesn’t sound unreasonable.

Yeah $60 is about right, but I live in DC, so it may be more expensive.

In the DC area that is what you are going to pay for a good hair cut. Most people I know pay between $40 and 75 + tip for a hair cut. So no, I dont think its that expensive.

I pay $65 at a good salon +tip outside of Boston for a good cut, so that’s on the cheap end for me. Highlights/color add on $75ish, not sure what my trial will be but my wedding day hair will be $125.
