Thanks everyone , It's been interesting to hear the various amounts . If I only cut my hair it would run $35 but the color doubles that amount . My hair grows fast and I have a short choppy cut so I visit the salon every six weeks .

Maybe, but is it tax deductible?

Definitely do this only when you are well rested, fully alert and not substance-impaired.

But it has to be for income producing assets.

As a follow-on topic, I wonder if the IRS would allow a model to deduct the cost of her make-up, clothes, and hairdos. Perhaps it is a moot point, as these are probably supplied by the hiring agency and do not come out of her pocketbook.

Well then you can always meet a client at the salon and write it off as a business expense . What better place to talk business while we are waiting for our colors to take ? Add in a pedicure and you will seal the deal for most women !

I noticed that no one put down wearing a wig. I love them and have quite a collection. I love to play around with different styles lengths and color. If it had my hair processed to reflect the different styles I'd be bald and broke. Wigs are a great way to change up your look with out the commitment expense and time of having your own hair done. Also great for those "bad hair days" when your own hair just will not cooperate.

Hmmmm...wigs...interesting. I don't think I could wear one all day long, but the thought is appealing for....ummmm...nightwear.

I get a cut about every 6 weeks for about $50 including tip. Color and cut every 12 weeks - if I'm lucky they are running a "free cut with color special" and I get it for about $100. But, I'd rather scrimp somewhere else than give up my cuts and colors!

I hate going to hair salon - feels like a waste of time but a necessary evil. So, I wear my hair layered and long - go for a trim twice a year. Need to colour quarterly and do the roots myself monthly. Actually, one hairdresser advised to do the roots myself at home - saves so much time and money. I would love not to colour my hair but when one has naturally black hair, it's difficult to grow grey gracefully. In anycase, each visit for cut, colour and special conditioning costs around $100.

I would like to know if anyone has taken the plunge and just stopped colouring. How did you deal with the ugly transition? Did you just accept the stares, shave your head, or wear a scarf? When your true colour was revealed, did you feel older? Were you retired or working when you did it?

I haven't taken the plunge yet but a few of my friends have and the ones that look good were blonds and they have short cuts so the transition was smooth . One of my friends that recently went gray is a twin and I have to say her hair is a gorgeous shade of gray but her sister who is still blond looks younger . One of my friends is retired and the other two are still working . I also swim with a woman who went gray and it is an awful shade and it makes her complexion look ashy. She was a brunette . I'm waiting for my older sister to go gray first . No way am I going to look older than her . She'd enjoy it too much !

I don't see any reason to ever quit coloring. If men were judged the same way women are, I would color too.
