StyleWatch Editors Want to Know: How Much Would You Pay for a Haircut?

03/14/2007 at 01:30 PM ET

We have seen a meteoric rise in price for haircuts in the past several years, sparked by shag goddess Sally Hershberger (think Meg Ryan’s iconic cut) and her $350 price tag. We thought that had topped off at Madonna-fave Orlando Pita’s $800 fee. But like designer bags, fees for seeing a high-profile stylist seem to have no limit, and celeb stylist Ted Gibson is now setting the jaw-dropping pace for highest price. You’re going to have to cough up $950 to get a turn in the same chair in which his celeb clients, like Jessica Alba and Angelina Jolie, entrust him with their tresses. Uh, we think we’ll just stick to his much more affordable product line. But we want to know what you think! Tell us: What is the most you would pay for a haircut? What is the most expensive cut you’ve gotten to date?

I pay $45 to get my hair cut, and that is about all I would pay, there is no way I could afford $950, even if it was just once! I will stick to my $45 haircut, thank you!

Wow! That is outragous for a haircut. I pay about $30 for my haircuts. I don’t think I have spent that much on haircuts in my life.

$50 at the most is what I would pay for a haircut. That’s including tax AND tip!

I think it’s ridiculous… frankly, Jessica Alba and Angelina Jolie’s hair don’t look that remarkable – certainly not $950 worth of amazingness. And it’s only going to make other hair stylists raise their prices, because they’ll probably think that if their prices are lower it means that they’re not as good as the other stylists. I really don’t think any haircut warrants that pricetag, unless I can wake up everyday with perfect curls, the perfect straight hair, or the kinds of waves you see in those Pantene commercials – and all without doing a thing.

I would only pay about $70, but Jessica ooks hot!

Kristin on

Um, a hair cut?? No more than $50. $950 is absurd.

Jennifer on

Ditto Michelle

I pay $80 for haircut including a tip. I thought that was ridiculous, but $950 is outrageous. I guess we have to keep in mind how much money these ladies make. $950 to a celebrity is like $10 to us uncelebrities.

Heather S. on

Definitely under $100!

ann on

$950??? there are so many other things that you can buy with 950 dollars! I’ve paid up to $100 but that included styling and tip…
