This was kind of an interesting thought that came up today. When it comes to getting a haircut, there are people who donâ€™t mind spending say $100 for one and others who think it is ridiculous as it should only be say $10. I guess in some ways this can be one of those things that you donâ€™t put much thought into as for the most part people want to look their best and so they donâ€™t mind spending the extra money to do so.
When it comes to a male versus a female though, there is usually an astounding amount of people who believe there is no way a guy should spend more than say $20 for a haircut. For myself, I usually spend between $10-$20 per cut. I have been to more high end places before and from my experience it usually either turns out the same or sometimes worse. In general though, I personally donâ€™t see how one needs to spend so much money to simply get a haircut. I can see if it was to style it and all that, but for a just a cut seems like a pure money grabber.
I think I once read that there was a person who charged almost $2000 per haircut. Now that would be an over the top example of way too much in my opinion. There are a lot of times where I see people who complain how essential things are so expensive and at the same time they have no problems dropping say a hundred dollars to get a hair cut. Sometimes I think certain people do it as well based on the price mentality on how if it is more expensive it must be better. There used to be a lady around here that did a really great job cutting my hair and it was for less than $10. She has since moved away from Vancouver to be closer to her family. I personally havenâ€™t found a new place that consistently does a good job and that includes places that are expensive as well. In my case, the price didnâ€™t really mean anything in terms of the end result.
I guess if you need to save money, this can be something to look into as maybe shopping around a bit can get you the same results you are after for less which will give you more money to spend on other things.
