I was watching this reality tv show in about 2 stylist from different regions traded places. Sorry, I forgot what the show's name is. One is usually from a small town and the other one is from LA or NYC. The one in the big cities are usually the snotty/conceited person that usually charges $200+ for a cut & style. They justify that their style and technique is better, because of blah, blah, blah... I try to anyalize their finish product on clients, but still can't figure out why it cost that much. From watching the show, I even feel intimidated by their behaviors. The stylist from a small town does just as a good job too & charges a fraction of the price. Are people so caught up in image to be spending that much on a haircut? I usually go to a local "hip" salon & I still wonder why they charge $30 plus tips for a haircut and it usually takes less than 20 minutes. How much are you willing (or have spent) on on haircut & style?
