So as you all know I've had crappy hair for basically all of 2007. I went to a mall hairdo place in the summer I think. She cut it with an eggbeater, put me under the dryer and went home. I paid $15 because they were sorry she ditched me, though in retrospect I should have refused to pay anything because it was a horrible cut. I want to not have to go all the way to Port Orchard for a hairdo, so I tried to make an appointment at a place that has been recommended to me by 3 people from 3 different age groups...I thought was a good sign....well they never called me back so I went to Pzazz. For non-locals they are kind of fancy schmancy. So I expected it to cost a bit more than what I think is really acceptable, but I figured what the heck. I've only spent $15 on haircuts in 2007 so far. To fix my freaky do it yourself highlights she recommended an all over color of dark blonde/light brown then do highlights over top and then redo my ends in the dark color because they were so bleached out and yucky. I thought it sounded good...didn't think to ask about the price. Got to the counter and before she added in my products it was...guess...you see the photo...what seems reasonable plus a bit to you?
$240!!!!!! I almost fell out. $130 for the all over color and cut, $80 for highlights/foils and $30 for the extra on the ends. Plus you have to tip and this is a service I've already received so I can't back out. With tip and products it was $317. Thank goodness Kyle called to say they are forcing him to work 5 OT hours. However, since this is ridiculous and even I can't justify it I suggested we just make $217 of it come from my Christmas budget. So if you ask what did I get for Christmas.....a super expensive haircut.
A couple hours later my hubby called from work to say he felt bad that my Christmas gifts would be hairdo and since I'm so fabulous we can make that be out of the house budget, but for future dos I need to pick a new salon. Isn't he sweet? This is my pay back since he was the only guy at work with homemade meals for their lunch break.
