    Yes I do, I am also opening up a new salon here in Auchterarder. This is why I moved house so I can put a major input in to what it is going to look like, but I will still need to travel back and forth to Glasgow which is not at all convenient for me at the moment I'm afraid. :(

    So what would the cost of what Ellie's after be in your salon out of interest?

    Yeah, I'd like to know. It's very thick and very long. Just a cut and highlights.

    If you were wanting to get your hair styled rather than trimmed it would cost around £40, adding highlights also depending how many, and how many different colours the cost of the whole cut and highlights depending on different styles etc could vary from around £60-£85.

    Hairdressing is not my forte though, I am a trained beauty therapist but I do know a few basics.

    Thanks Rita.

    Oh WELL. My mum said she'd pay for half of it anyway. I said no originally but when they quoted the price I took her up on it :bad:

    Using professional imaging programes, I'd guess it'd be something like this;

    I get my hair cut, styled and coloured by someone at work for £10. I used to go to a proper place and paid about £65-ish each time so £135 doesn't seem surprising, though I would begrudge paying it. I suppose it depends how often you need to have it done.

    I would only pay 135 if one of those Gai Bois from Queer Eye would cut it or someone else "famous", like the Aswirl Twins

    EXACTLY

    i mean if you're going to get it dyed, bleached, permed or whatever then fair enough.

    But if you're going to get it cut and styled, there's little point, you'll never get it to look like the same as when you leave the hairdressers...

    Hence why I have it done only once a year, twice at best. It just grows back, and since I have it extra long there's no point. Mine seems to keep in good condition for ages.

    Most i've spent on a haircut is £6. That was when my local upped the price from £4.50.

    I've changed places now and its £3.90 now :D

    To keep costs low is one point but going THAT cheap is ANOTHER.

    £25 ish.

    135 is ridiculous, what an utter rip off.
