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 would pay 350 for a haircut from Sally or 800 for a cut from Orlando. Expensive, but if Elizabeth L. would go out with me (RIGHT NOW), it would be the best investment of my life.

This is coming from a stylist’s mind. Listen people, it all depends on location. I’m from a little town in New Hampshire where yes, we charge at max, $45 per haircut. If I was in a big city i.e. NY, Boston, LA, I’d be charging more for my haircuts. It depends on the amount of a dollar vs. cost of living. Hair styling IS a business and we have to live too. Now I am not a bitter person, I just feel some light should be shed from the other side.

WHAT? $950 for a haircut? If I’m going to be paying that much for a cut they better be cutting my hair with diamond crested scissors and wetting my hair with holy water! I pay $35 for CUT, BLOW DRY, and STYLE…and i think thats enough not to mention tax and tip…But, I have spent about $130 when I’ve gotten color, or highlights…the price we pay to be beautiful, huh?
