had colour and highlights , no cut just fringe trimmed
I do look stunning though grin

I do (embarrassed to say how much)!

If you feel and look stunning, money well spent, IMO. Your hair is always with you after all.

ggirl Wed 08-Jun-11 15:50:56

gwan gwan tell me
I won't judge you wink

wudu Wed 08-Jun-11 15:53:52

I've just had my hair cut (and fringe trimmed wink ) for £15!

I look like shite though <makes ggirl feel better>

ggirl Wed 08-Jun-11 15:55:50

well I look £85 better than thou

madammecholet Wed 08-Jun-11 15:55:56

I spend more than that every 2 months. Its ok.

I spend WAAAAY more. I would worry that this sounds like bragging, but you did ask grin. I don't have loads of money, and don't spend a lot on other beauty treatments, but I would cheerfully live on a diet of stale bread and brackish water in order to afford my now manageable, nicely coloured hair.

£100 pah - used to spend more than that 15 years ago wink

note used to

does that make you feel better ????

Pre-children, when I had a life, I used to have my hair done by Daniel Galvin.

The thought of how much I used to spend makes me giddy to think about now.

thanks girls
your decadence is helping
will seek out the brakish water instead of wine tonight

Ginabraz Wed 08-Jun-11 16:01:09

I looked to change my hairdresser but stopped when I was quoted for £230 for colour only!! I've stuck with my original at £125.

ggirl Wed 08-Jun-11 16:03:16

£230 ! what just straight colour no highlights?

PharoahNuff Wed 08-Jun-11 16:11:21

they saw you coming

Avdea ( student nnight)
i dont liek highlights
they always look shit and stripey on everyone

speculationisrife Wed 08-Jun-11 16:33:08

Methinks Pharoah is not entering into the spirit of this. However, Ginabraz, even I'm shock at that for colour only. Do they use gold leaf?

ggirl Wed 08-Jun-11 16:35:27

mine do NOT look stripey aksherly
have had tiger stripes before
these ones are underneath

smartyparts Wed 08-Jun-11 16:39:43

If it makes you feel better - I once spent (well DH did) £300 plus on just a trim!!

speculationisrife Wed 08-Jun-11 16:40:13

Which proves that they only look stripey if you have them done cheaply wink.

cybbo Wed 08-Jun-11 16:45:54

I spent £40 on me roots last night

Feel a million dollars today though

reikizen Wed 08-Jun-11 16:49:28

I spend £90 having a cut and highlights (not in anyway stripy thankyou wink). Always makes me feel slightly giddy & sick but I do look better than when I used to dye it myself (when I spent a fiver and looked & felt like a bag of shit). I think the most I have spent is £125.

Mumelie Wed 08-Jun-11 17:05:43

My cut n highlights are about £100 a go, not at all stripy, and its the only thing like that I spend on, about every 2 months.

Bunbaker Wed 08-Jun-11 22:30:07

I live in the provinces and pay £47 for a cut, colour with highlights and blow dry by a fantastic hairdresser who understands my hair grin
