Just wondering really. We had a mobile hairdresser come last night, whe's been coming for a while and gets quicker every time!
Last night she spent approx 6 minutes cutting my hair and about 5 minutes drying it - it's a jaw length bob, fine, slightly way, she cut a few layers in. It doesn't look great tbh
She then did both DDs - both have long hair, so just a trim.
She was in and out in under 25 minutes for all three of us and charged £30.
Is it possible to give decent haircuts in that sort of time?
I'm aware that in salons there's probably a fair bit of faffing around, washing conditioning, drinking tea etc to eek out the whole experience and which justifies the price but I'm thinking at £30 for less than half an hour's work (and my electricity for the brief blow dry!) she's taking the piss a bit.
I have had a great cut from someone who seemed to send about 5 minutes just half-heartedly cutting. But, I think she was just a skilled hairdresser and knew what she was doing to my boring hairstyle. But, 25 minutes for all 3 of you - no, I'd think about changing.
Mine allows an hour but I pay £30. I really do think you get what you pay for with hairdressers but yours does sound like she's taking the piss. I would find someone else even when I had cropped hair cuts took longer than that!
