Sometimes little things really start to bug me. In this case, it’s the price of my haircut. I cut my hair short into a bit of a pixie cut because I thought it would be easier. It is, almost every day, with the exception of the day I need to get my hair cut. This is about once a month because my hair grows pretty quickly. There are two things that really bug me about this: 1) it takes my hairdresser, a lovely lady, about an hour and a half to cut my hair and 2) it costs 60$. Now, I’m in no way saying that my hairdresser does not deserve to make a good wage, and that my haircut isn’t worth that. It’s just that my partner has an admittedly similar haircut, and it costs him 10$, and takes about 20 minutes.
The problem isn’t with my salon – a man’s haircut in the same place is about 40$, so just a bit less. The problem is that I’m trying to save for grad school, and am cutting frivolous expenses. It’s just hard to justify spending that much money on my hair, every month. It comes out just over 700$ per year. I shudder to think what I used to spend when I got highlights done!!
So I think there’s but one solution: grow my hair, and cut it myself. Sounds like a recipe for disaster, I know. Stay tuned. Drama is sure to ensue.
