    Booked my first ever proper hair dresser appointment! Is for next week. Excited, nervous, gosh how much is it going to cost?!

    I just finished reading an article on fbook about someone that had a $450 hairdressing bill. As this hairdresser was recommended to me by a close friend (who I know would never spend that kind of money on hair), I'm pretty confident it won't cost that much... But still a bit nervous. I know it varies greatly but what do people pay for a cut & colour? I have medium-long length hair - just below my shoulders. It's not in bad condition, I had a trim and foils before xmas so about 6-8 weeks ago.

    I think anywhere between $120-$200 is your average price. I love my hairdresser appointments. It's the only time I get to myself so I cherish them

    it won't cost that much.

    when I had extensions, I'd go in every 6-8 weeks to get them lifted and the removal/retaping of the extensions, plus my usual treatment of foils (half head) and a cut and blow wave was usually around the $300 mark tops. and this was a "cool" salon in a ritzy area.

    for $450 I'd expect Maurice Meade himself to be doing my hair 😂

    my usual hair bill is around the $180 mark. I don't have the extensions anymore so it's just a trim (my hair is pretty conservative, just a shoulder length bob really) and either a half head or full head of foils. as I'm usually just going home straight after, I skip the blow dry to save a bit of money. they prob think I'm scabby but I don't care. I'm not paying $35 or whatever it costs when I'm just going home after lol.

    I get mine done about every 7-8 weeks these days. it's not cheap but I like my hair to feel fresh and updated. it's very fine so if I let it go, it really shows.

    When I had my major makeover it was $308 for cut, full head of highlights and a treatment. This was an upmarket salon though and done by their most senior stylists which pushed the price up. Cut was $110, colour $170 and $28 for treatment. Most I've ever paid for a hair appointment. Worth.every.cent 😀

    If you're a bit concerned it's going to be really pricey, a good way of getting a hair makeover at a good set price is buying a package from somewhere like Groupon.

    I've done this a couple of times and received great prices (I paid about $70 for shampoo/style cut/blow-dry/half head of foils/treatment). Decent salons too!

    Thanks guys I'm not too worried, I had said to DH it would probably be about $200 but that was a guesstimate and he was happy for me to spend that, so don't think he would freak unless it was getting up to $300 mark. I don't live in a ritzy area and the salon I am going to isn't either - it's young and stylish but not OTT. I'll ask them for a quote when we're discussing styles too just to make sure I'm not in for a shock 😂

    I'm not even sure my DH will be home the evening I get it done!

    Still a bit worried about what mum will say but honestly asking her to do my hair atm is out of the question as she's got a lot on. Hopefully she will understand I just didn't want to add to her list of stuff to do.

    Honestly I am sure your mum will be fine

    My cousin posted a photo on Facebook of her hair, and I loved it, she had just had it done, and she went to pay, and was told it was $450. I nearly bloody died lol....I looove going to the hair dressers, but that's a bit too much for me.

    I got a quote while I was out today, for a style cut, a few foils and a blow dry and that was $160, even DP said he could live with that price lol...So I will make an appointment for after I have had the baby. i am going to keep my length, my hair is just past my shoulders. Looking forward to it, it's long over due.

    I was tossing up suggesting taking your mum in with you and shouting her to a blow wave or something at the same time?

    Oh gosh 😂. I love the idea - Only my mum will absolutely not have anyone - and I mean anyone - touch her hair!!
    She and I are very different people. I once shouted her a day spa voucher for her bday and found out it's her idea of hell. I've also tried taking her to a nice restaurant for lunch etc and she literally begged me not to take her (she'd rather the local pub/bowls club). Sigh. We have very little in common.

    my mum is a bit the same way. she's improved in recent years but hates anything luxe or fancy or fussy. I think it gives her anxiety.

    we def weren't even the mother/daughter team you'd see down the local nail salon getting our nails done together. pretty sure she thinks what I spend on pampering is a waste of money.
