Interesting poll. My hair is relatively short now - at chin length - and I find I need to trim it every 2 1/2 to 3 months to keep it looking right. When my hair was long I almost never had to have it trimmed or cut. The salon I use charges around $30 for a simple cut so it does add up. My natural colour is a mousy blonde so I enhance the colour to make it a golden blonde. I do that myself at home using Nice & Easy - they have the best colour choice for golden blonde - and the results look great - I regularly get compliments on my hair :) .

Well, the human being to whom the hair is attached is no slouch, either, no man. :)

Sexist poll, or at least exclusionist, but I will answer anyway (mentally substituting "barber shop" for "beauty salon," si man).

I used to spend $14 monthly for really good haircuts, but with a demanding young Mini-Bone now on the scene, I can't afford to schedule haircut appointments, so I found this nearby walk-in place -- run by Thai or other East Asian ladies who speak little English and understand even less -- for $3.99. I look like a clown afterwards, but at least the hair is shorter, si man.

I miss going to Mexico for the best haircuts on the planet for $4, sigh man...

Once we had the bambino, I started going to a local hairstyling school to have my hair done. $30 for cut and color. I normally go once a month.

Had I never been in the salon industry, I dare even think what I would have paid all these years.

Several good friends are hairdressers...I have had my hair done for free for pretty much as long as I remember. It was especially easy when I actually worked in the salon...we would trade services when we had no customers.

I've had $2000 hair extensions that I paid $500 for the hair, nothing for the fee, and $200 for a tip. I've gone to work as a brunette and come home as a blonde, I've come home with pink hair, purple, red, highlights, lowlights...you name it. Conditioning treatments once a week ($50) Facials ($65) once a month, etc.

I would get regular free body waxing (legs $50) , eyebrows ($15), etc.

I never let anyone do my acrylic nails, as I learned to do them myself, and I was really picky. If I did them on a customer, the sets started @ $120 for the set, and $65 for the fill-ins. I did my fills usually every 10 days. I did get regular pedicures though (once a month), and paraffin treatments on my hands and feet. Pedis were $65, and the par treatments I think totalled $60 for both. I did the parafin on my hands ($20) every week , and the feet ($40)were once a month.

For about a year straight, my friend Chris would blow out my hair every morning before we started work. At the salon where we were at, that would have been $50. One day, he said 'what on Earth did you do before you met me?' and I looked at my hair through the mirror, and said 'you're lookin at it' LOL

Now, that I'm not in the industry any longer, I go to my friend for an actual appt. She cuts my hair, and doesn't charge me...but I usually give her $50 for a tip. Hair color, I do @ home...I have my formula, access to the industry only stores, so I buy them ($7 a tube plus developer, can't remember how much that is), and my mom puts it on for me. Then we sit and kibbitz while it's processing. It's actually a lot of fun!

I had short hair a few years back, in which case it was a haircut once every 3 months or so (the cut allowing it to grow without looking weird).

Now it's longer, and I keep it most of the time tied. My husband cuts (and sometimes dyes) my hair, and I cut his. So no salon costs involved, however I like to set $ 50 for each haircut either has to our travel expenses account. So real salon costs - about $ 0 per year. Same as the annual costs for any nail salons etc - I like my nails short (works better for gardening). :)

I get everything done when I'm back home in India. Haircut, facial, bleach, waxing, eyebrows, pedicure, manicure all for around $25. That's my once-a-year beautification ritual.

I've only cut my hair twice or thrice in the last six years that I've been in the US. I sport a low-maintenance style so it's easy to just let it hang and grow out. My roommate and I used to cut each other's hair in college. I often cut mine and Mr. Sachinky's. Now that he has an actual job and can't go in looking like someone hacked his hair, he sometimes gets it cut from Supercuts which is, like, $12. I dye my hair very rarely, once in a blue moon, and I just use a DIY box. I've been meaning to try out one of those new foam things. I do my own nails.
