How much do you pay for young DD haircut?
11

1wokeuplikethis · 23/09/2022 14:59

My 9yo needs a haircut, only really a trim and it’s roughly £10 but the last place I took her (a salon) did a little trim, went over it with straighteners and charged £22.

the place we are going today said if she wants it washed & dried it will be £26.

I find it a bit steep. If she really wanted the whole shebang, I would pay that as a treat.

is it just me though or is that really expensive? Wash, trim, dry= £26. It’s not like she’s having loads of products or a blow out.

Just wondering whether I’m out of touch, how much do others pay? We are midlands.

I pay the same as you’ve been quoted for my daughters bob with a fringe. Still takes about 30-40 mins for them to cut.

I also pay £26 for a wash cut & blow dry and they will straighten or curl it if she wants.

Some local salons won't do children as it takes them as much time as an adult's appointment but can't charge adult prices because people won't pay it.

My dd usually gets a dry cut and that's cheaper than wash, cut and dry. They spray the hair with water instead

We pay £22 for a wash and blow dry for my DD (8). Seems to be the going rate around here (East Sussex).

£10 for a trim for 10yo dd. I wouldn't do the whole wash and blow dry unless it was a special occasion.

I used to cut DD's hair myself or take her to a barber with her DBs.

DS kid cut (short back & sides) is £10 so for a wash/dry/etc that sounds fair enough?
I think £10 is expensive though especially when you have multiple kids so I feel for you!

Until at high school was £10 at same salon I go to. Now is £25 cut& blowdry but as a teen the haircut is more than a basic trim.
