Since moving to Vegas, I’ve only paid more than $10 for a haircut on one occasion. (I had a wedding coming up, so I splurged and went to the salon in Wal-Mart. It cost me $13 or $14.) I’m not cheap. Recently, I paid seven bucks for a bubble tea, but I am fiscally discerning. Allow me to explain...
Do I get bad haircuts for $10? Sure, sometimes. But back in Michigan, back when I got my hair cut at a fancy salon, my haircuts turned out crappy an equal percentage of the time.
So here’s what I’ve figured out: 1) How much you pay for a haircut has virtually no connection to how good the cut’s going to be. 2) It doesn’t matter where you go, it matters who you get.
When you get a crappy haircut from a fancy salon, you might convince yourself that it’s good. You might tell yourself that it’s different or that it’s modern. But in reality it’s just crappy. And y’all are paying a lot more for your crappy haircuts than I’m paying for mine.
