When did haircuts become so INSANELY priced? I don’t know about YOU, but I am NOT that girl who is going to pay $200.00 for a trim. In FACT, I’m WAY overdue for a cut because I’m using Miracle Anti-Aging hair care, which has a natural hair growth stimulator and my hair is growing like a weed now, when I couldn’t get it passed my shoulders before. The KEY is going to be regular cuts for me.
And CUTS just CAN’T be “regular” when celebs are involved, can they? I guess I GET IT, what with them being in the business of beauty and all, and how one bad hair day could be the reason they don’t get cast in a multi-million dollar picture. Yes, I said PICTURE – gosh I’m old. But I can’t help but think they are being OVERcharged.
I mean, Jennifer Anniston reportedly has a price tag of $920 without tip when celebrity stylist Chris McMillan cuts her hair for $600 and if she gets color, which starts at an additional $320 (SOURCE: Beautyriot.com). Gotta love Beverly Hills and that somebody has the chutz·pah to SNIP SNIP and say “THAT will be $600 please.”
And that somebody PAYS it. I would like to SEE the difference between a $200 haircut, a $300 haircut and then a $600 haircut.
Beautyriot.com reports this golden girl pays ONLY $650 for full highlights, cut and blowout, along with the likes of Nicole Kidman and Jessica Alba. Her go-to stylist is David Babaii at Neil George Salon in Beverly Hills. Does Anniston’s hair LOOK more like a $600 cut, compared to Hudson’s?
And don’t get me started on singer Rihanna. According to their sources, Rihanna spends approximately $1900 a week on her locks with celeb stylist Ursula Stephen charging Rihanna $285 per day. Yes, I said $1900 a WEEK. Read the full article on The Most Expensive Celebrity Haircuts Revealed here. I guess if it’s TAX DEDUCTIBLE, anything goes, right?
That’s why I love the beauty schools where you can get a nice, supervised cut and it won’t break the bank. And you can take that $200 and pay it on your sky-high rent and maybe groceries.
Well, hold on to your piggies, cuz here’s a way you get a “FREE” haircut…plus you can help out some deserving people in need.
The Aveda Institute Los Angeles is holding “Beauty for a Cure” Wednesday, October 29th. You get a free EXPRESS service of a haircut, facial, polish change or makeup application and in return the requested donation is $10.00 and that goes to charity.
So, it’s pretty much a win-win.
Originally, they were doing this all day, but now it’s walk in’s only (first come first served) starting after 12 noon to up about 6:30pm.
