    Default How much do you pay for 1/2 head of foils?

    I just want to see whether the salon I go to is ripping me off big time. Yesterday I got half a head of foils, toning, cut (very slight trim, not a restyle), shampoo and blow dry and it was $215. I have long hair. This is a suburban salon in a shopping center (not a big Centre like Westfield, just a local shopping centre), an hour out of the city.

    I'm sure they used to charge me $150 for the same thing only a couple of years ago. I feel like I'm paying city prices!

    How much do others pay for the same thing?

    Sounds roughly similar to the hairdressers around my area, and what I have paid, it's on the exxy end for sure, but not a complete rip off.

    Eta: last time I did get a half head of foils 2 years ago (I've since ditched the foils) it was a winter special for $190. So not their usual price and I'm sure it's increased since then.

    Oh and shopping centre hairdressers are usually more exxy due to higher rent

    That sounds high to me. In my area I would expect to pay $140 ish for that.

    I got a full head of foils, toning, wash, cut, blow dry and straighten for $163 a week ago. My hair was shoulder length at the time.

    That sounds high to me. I have hair nearly touching my bum and had a half head, toner, treatment, cut and straightened for $130 a few weeks ago. The full head was going to be $220.

    Sounds about what i would expect, especially for long hair. Lots of hairdresser time goes into foils. I pay about 200 for a half head of foils (short hair) and cut, so more for long hair would not be surprising at all. The place i go isn't fancy, just a little local place.

    Oh wow...don't go there again. The hairdressers i go to charges me $230 for a full head, toner, blowdry and straighten finish. I have quite thick hair as well.

    I wouldn't pay more than $130 for half a head.

    I've been going there for the last 3 years but seeing my hairdresser for at least 5 years prior, she knows my hair so well I'm too scared to go elsewhere :-( I get a full head every second time I go so I'm probably looking at $250 plus next time!!!

    I just (yesterday) had a half head of foils, toner, cut and blow dry and it cost me $235! I am sure I only paid $170 on special last time. I think I need to find a new hairdresser... 😟 i expect to pay up to $200 for a full head. My hairdresser is not even in a busy city area. I dont think I will be going back...
