    $60 for wash cut blow dry and straighten. If your Salon is in Westfield you'll pay for the rent they have to pay. A friend of mine has a shop in Westfield in one of the middle sections in the walkways and their rent is $12,000 a month and it's not even enclosed

    Hairdressers are so expensive!!!

    I colour mine myself now and my last haircut was done by a friend, for free, in the lounge room.

    I've been looking into the local tafes beauty salon for my haircuts from now on. I'm poor, but I hate to actually look poor, lol!

    See I don't think they are (well the majority, not talking about those trendy inner city designer places). When I recently had my big hair cut/style/colour I was in there for 5 hours and the girls spent the whole time on their feet, perfecting my hair. At one point I had 2 working on my (superfine) foils at the same time. $180 divided by 5 hours is $36 an hour. Take out money for the salon owner, the products etc the poor girls must be getting paid a pittance.

    Most people will happily pay $80 for a 1 hour massage, or $150 for a one hour facial - so I don't think $150-$200 is much to pay for a 3-5 hour hair pampering.

    (This coming from someone who has been fortunate enough to have free cuts and colours my whole life - mum is a hairdresser. But she is getting older and I don't want her to have to do my hair anymore, hence I now go into a salon).

    Oh wow, I'm loving my hairdresser now. She works from home, $55 for cut and colour (full head).

    However I get my nails done within a hair salon and the prices I hear them charge their customers is between $150-$300 for cut and colour or foils.

    $30 to get my hair trimmed. I'm too poor to afford anything else.

    My hair dresser has an at-home salon. I see her every 6 weeks as my hair is quite short, and I need regular cuts to maintain it's style.

    On one visit I do a cut, and have the foil color refreshed and a new base color applied - $70

    On the alternating visit I do a cut, have the foils re-bleached and a new base color applied, then have the foils colored - $90

    I was going for about 12 months and paid $100 for a bleach, toner and cut. I stopped and went back to doing it myself as I felt bad (I have Martyr issues with money ) I've worked out how it get it a lovely creamy ash blonde like the hairdresser was doing for $20.

    I just showed DH this thread. His eyes bulged

    I get a half head of foils, toner and cut and pay $240. I go every 6-8 weeks. They give me a cupcake and glass of champagne while I'm there, so totally worth it
    Oh bummer, I just realised I'm going this Saturday and now I'm pregnant I won't be able to have my champagne. Damnit. I better get two cupcakes.
