How much would you expect to pay for a colour?

I've just called up my hairdresser to book in for a colour and have been told that a root touch up and a few foils will be £115. shock

Am I being naive about prices nowadays or is that absolutely extortionate?

I would buy a pack of Nice n easy if I had someone to help me see the back of my head!

Also can anyone recommend any decent (but cheaper) salons in the Surrey / Middlesex area? smile

I pay £19 for a demi colour all over but no foils. I would expect to pay about £60 for what you have described.

I am in Surrey but it is an independent and I think they are really reasonable. Is your salon part of a chain? They are the most expensive in my experience apart from boutique/uber trendy salons.

I spent £89 this morning for half a head of foils and a demi colour all over (and a cut). Seems about average, is quite a smart salon. I'm in Surrey too btw.

I pay £110 for a colour and cut now. Thats since I changed to a cheaper hairdresser - I used to pay more!

I think its about average to be is a lot of money when it needs doing every 6 weeks like mine does shock

Does that include a cut? I'm always staggered about how much professional colouring costs. How often does it have to be done?

I paid £76 for a cut and colour with highlights. That seemed expensive to me so your price seems extortionate, but I'm oooop North!

I pay about £95 for half a head of highlights and a cut and bd.
