Money spent on hair - women only

We've had a lot of discussions on how much we spend at the beauty parlor and I know I'm not the only one who spends a chunk of money . So let's do a poll .

Why isn't there an option for "I do my own hair"?

I usually spend $35+- for haircuts - every 7-8 weeks.

When I do get it highlighted it is closer to $85. But I only do that 3, maybe 4 times a year.

Had my colour and highlights done last week and that was $170 before tip. I have to get my roots done every 4 weeks. I spend well over $2,000 a year on my hair.

Me too...however every once in a while I'll give them a little snip, but then the next time my stylist sees me she says "You've been cutting your bangs again haven't you?"

Ooops....

I want to vote for my wife. Same as Kyounge, it's $0. A couple of years ago, my wife decided to keep longer hair, and she can cut it herself. She doesn't do anything else to her hair.

That is not as bad as the one time I decided to color my hair and I looked like Lucille Ball and had to wear hats for six months .

That's about what most of the women at my former workplace spent. I think that is not out of line at all, in comparison with what many professional women spend.

I used to go every 4 to 5 weeks for color and added a haircut every three months or so for a grand total of $95 including tip. When we re'd in summer 08, I took that out of the budget for the short term. My stylist (who went to hs with my son) taught me how to cut my bangs and told me what color of magic l'Oreal to use ("natural light brown" which was the color she used on me). I'm really good at doing the color myself but I don't enjoy doing it. And I go to Great Clips every four or five months now, again, something I don't really enjoy like I did going to my stylist.

I voted for DW. She goes about once a month and spends $20 - $30. No coloring, and she has short hair.

While we surf the Web, each on his/her own computer, she would call out to me "Darling, look at this super deal airfare they have on special..."

But I give her hugs all the time anyway...

A lot of people did . My stylist is always moaning about the downturn in economy . It has been so bad she gave me her Louie Vuitton purses to sell on ebay !
