    Do you go to a chain like toni & guy or a local?

    I've paid £150 for colours and everything in C. London salons.
    A place called David Charles
    Think its a chain but i dont know where the others are.

    Hope they treat you nicely for that money. The most expensive I've been to is Nicky Clarke in London, it was really lovely.

    I will pay more for good treatment. I love proper scalp massages with my feet up for example. Also I really like being fussed over gently, I can't bear salons where they bash you about.

    I pay £28 with student discount of 10%. I think it depends on how experienced your hair dresser is and where you go!

    I get mine done twice a year at Toni & Guy for £35, but have a friend who will trim and colour for me in between. She used to have her own salon so she's good! Only do T&G when I want something quite drastic, as obviously mobile hairdressing has limited equipment.

    £10 for mine. Though she is a family friend so she doesn't charge me any more

    I left my old hair dressers cos they left me with loads of split ends and it wasnt cut straight.
    Plus they would never do it blonde.

    DC got it from red (my dp) to very light ash blonde in two sets of highlights and a bleach.

    Its always cut so nicely too and they do such a good shampoo too.

    9 times out of 10 yes I mean obviously it's always "not quite right" when a hairdresser does it and I enjoy washing it and styling it again myself and then it looks perfect. Only had one bad experience with a dreadful conceited girl who was too interested in talking to her mates than listening to what I wanted, who messed up my hair (the teaching stylist had to come and correct it :sigh:) and then cut my fringe stupidly short even when i'd already asked her to stop cutting :lolwut: Needless to say I kicked up a fuss via letter and got the Art Director to cut my hair :sexface: I've also had qualified and experienced stylists cut my hair simply because they felt like joining in on the model night (the girl only did colours and missed cutting hair) so that was great Oh, and one time they'd made a mistake because the guy meant to be doing my hair hadn't learnt to cut yet, so the top top top guy (Star Director?) did it for me

    Haha, it sounds like you are good at getting your own way and getting things right for you.

    I used to be terrified of speaking my mind in a salon until I did work experience in one in Y11. Since then I tell them EXACTLY what I want and I keep repeating it until I get it. To the girls who never complain, I'm like, "You're paying them!! Not the other way round!"

    £10 at my local hairdressers for being a hair model.

    I get my hair cut by the senior stylist with about 3 trainees watching and taking notes, so it takes longer, but I still get a great haircut for £10 instead of £50

    £35 I think for the decent one. I went to a cheaper one it was around £17 and I've never been so ashamed to walk for a taxi in my life. I asked for a half up/half down thing and they gave me a snooki bump, never again.

    Also sometimes I like to go to the really expensive one before my birthday and stuff, it costs about £70, they do things like spending 30 minutes gently fluffing my hair till it looks slightly tousled lol. Also they have massage chairs, it's quite an experience. The owner of that one likes to do my hair because it's long and he has a thing for long hair, but it always turns out amazing. If I was rich I'd go there every week, definitely.

    Mine costs me £110 for whole head bleach, wash, cut, blow dry. I never do just wash cut and blow dry

    Although considering ive got enough hair on my head to rival the hairiest yetti youve ever seen and its about boob length its worth it seen as they use so much product and it takes about 2 hours too plus they do a smashing job

    Seriously, you pay over £100 to have your hair done?? Bloomin heck, I'm in the wrong line of work. Can I interest you in a quick style? I'm very good with clippers and a razor. Yours for £90.

    Yerhh but i never get a cut and blow dry. I only usually go to get it bleached then have it cut afterwards.

    :') You wouldnt get anywhere with clippers on my mop.

    And narrh im a lazy **** and not actually been since before i went skiing in December. So its not 'that' expensive really.
