Just back from the hairdressers, had hair trimmed & coloured all over. Nice to sit, drink a cup of coffee whilst its still hot and read trash mags. But the bill came to £115!!!
I know that I am prob being a bit tight, having just reached the nil pay point of my maternity leave and the hairdresser was a lovely lady, just the right amount of chit chat and left me to read too but I really really can't afford this every 6-8 weeks. Have a lot of curly long hair so I appreciate its not exactly a short back and sides but does anyone have any tips for getting a cheaper trim somewhere thats not too pricey but will be able to deal with my mane?
Where the effing jeff charges £15 for a cut and colour? You can't get a cleaner for much less than that pro rata hourly rate, never mind the products they use to do your hair with, water, electricity, salon overheads...the mind boggles how they make any money at all!
My lovely hairdresser closed her doors today leaving me up shit creek in need of a new person. I'm heartbroken, she was the best hairdresser I've ever had and because she was out in the sticks only charged £66 for cut and colour. I'm resigned to the fact will have to head back to the city and be charged £100+ every four weeks. I don't have foils or anything, just regrowth tint to cover my almost 100% prematurely grey sprinkling of white hairs.
I went to a few yesterday for consults, and the cheapest was £99.50.

Yeah I did kind of check but didn't add it all up until i got to the till. I just wondered what everyone else does as it is quite a lot of money. Money well spent on this occasion as i am sitting here trying to resist touching my lovely smooth mane, but like mrsnesbit says, I can only think about how much food shopping/ bills that would pay for. I remember now why I started colouring it myself at home, though felt I had to stop when I was flicking the colour all over the bathroom. Even managed to get a streak of dye down the radiator once!
