Is $100 for a Haircut Actually Worth It?

Updated: Feb 23

Wondering if a haircut is worth $100? Is cost even an indication of outcome or satisfaction?

These days, you can expect to pay anywhere between $50 and $500 for a lady's cut.

So, when you can get a somewhat decent cut for $50, is $100 worth it?

I’m here to answer that question. Keep reading for the low-down on haircut pricing, and whether a $100 haircut is *actually* worth it!

Factors of a $100 Haircut

In order to understand pricing, let's take a look at a few factors that affect the pricing of your cut, and even more important, whether or not it's worth paying $100 for:


You hear it all the time in real estate, and when you look at your amazing hair as prime real estate, it makes sense that location is an influence on the price of your cut, too!

The cost of living in your area is going to have a direct impact on haircut pricing. For example, if you live in New York City, you can expect to pay more for a haircut than if you lived in a small town in the Midwest.

It all has to do with overhead costs and demand. Simply put, when there are more people competing for the same haircutting services, the price will increase.

The Stylist's Experience and Training

This is a big one! When you're paying $100 or more for a haircut, you want to be sure that your stylist knows what they're doing.

The best way to ensure this is to find someone with experience and training. Your stylist's years of experience will have a direct impact on how much they charge for a haircut. More experienced stylists tend to charge more because they have the skills and knowledge to back it up.

In addition to experience, your stylist's training is also important. A stylists’ training doesn't stop when they become a hairdresser. The *worthy* $100 USD hairstylists understand that staying on top of the best trends is vital!

So, you'll probably find that your worthy $100 haircut, was done by a stylist who sees his craft as something that necessitates lifelong learning!

The Salon's Reputation

The salon's reputation is also going to play a role in haircut pricing. A high-end salon with a good reputation is going to charge more than a salon that is just starting out or doesn't have the best reputation.

This is because the high-end salon has more to lose if they don't provide a good haircut. Their reputation is on the line, so they need to make sure that their stylists are experienced and trained, and that they use high-quality products.

Speaking of products, the type of products used can also impact the price of a haircut. High-end salons tend to use higher quality products, which can drive up the price.

The Length and Thickness of Your Hair

The length and thickness of your hair are also going to play a role in haircut pricing.

If you have long or thick hair, it's going to take your stylist longer to cut it, which means they'll charge more.

On the other hand, if you have short or thin hair, it won't take as long to cut, so the price will be lower.

The Type of Cut You Get

The type of haircut you get is also going to impact the price.

If you're getting a simple trim, it's not going to cost as much as if you're getting a more complicated haircut, like layers or a style cut.


When you treasure the feeling a *good* cut gives you, there's nothing better than finding a consistent hairdresser.

Therefore consistency is also a factor in a $100 haircut. And when you think of the ease and trust you will have time and again knowing that you'll come out feeling like your best self is worth it!

Next time you're contemplating whether $100 for a haircut is worth it, remember the *value* of what you are paying for. And in the end, only you can decide if it's worth it for *you*.
