How much would you be willing to pay for a hair trim?
I'm talking about long hair (it's about half-way down my back at the moment), and about taking off no more than 1-1.5 inches - pretty much just getting rid of the endings to keep them healthy. No layering or whatever, just a straight cut to end up with "as is" only an inch less. And no washing or blow drying or anything. Just a few minutes with scissors.
The place I normally go to is thousands of miles away right now, and I feel my hair needs a trim. See my sig - I want to keep growing out my hair, but it really frustrates me sometimes, so I need to challenge myself to only have the endings trimmed when I go for a cut, and not to ask for a bigger cut.
Anyhow, I checked a few places yesterday and they asked for $50-$70 for what I described above. That's CRAZY!!! I'm so glad I asked for the price before actually sitting down in the chair, which I was just about to do... eeek!!! I asked how much it would be for a wash & blow dry & cut. Same price. So I said "oh, then I might just as well do that, could I book an appointment for another day?" Not that I was going to actully go for it, but I just needed a way to get out of there.
I'm about to call them to cancel - no way I'm paying this much! And I don't think that's a reasonable price at all!
