Hate to say it but 20 is pretty cheap. Depending on how I'm feeling I usually spend the 20 on the cut and if they style it good I will tip them 10-20. Every time I go back they do a excellent job.

Dang 80, where do you live?! Where I live, color/highlights and the like are usually $80-150 and cuts are usually $25-45, all before tip. And that's not even the super fancy stuff! :(

I honestly think it depends on where you live and the cost of living in each state as to how much haircuts should cost. I work in a high end salon and charge $35 for a mens haircut and $45 for women's. And other people I work with charge even more. But you definitely get what you pay for. We do an excellent job. I don't get paid hourly. I get paid commission on what I do. I don't know how anyone could live off of only being paid minimum wage or lower. Hairstylists usually don't get benefits, or paid holidays, or holidays off. And normally have to work weekends. I think we deserve to be paid well to stand on our feet all day and work weekends. And I love my job. I don't think hairstylists get nearly enough credit for the work we do. But I guess everyone is different. I go above and beyond to make my clients happy, so that is why I'm able to charge that much and people are happy to pay it.

I didn't say it was the cheapest ever. My local is cheaper than that. However, as people have said, a lot of other places charge a lot more so, in the grander scheme of things, $25 is not expensive. With cuts ranging from $5 to probably $100 you simply can't sat that $25 is expensive just because it's not completely at the bottom. That's not how numbers work.

123, I just got a haircut at Walmart (first time there) they did an awesome job and it was $11.50 :p and I've had people who forcefully move your head and charge almost 20 bucks. But Walmart lady was nice, good small talk and did a good job :p

I used to pay about $25 for my haircut maybe 15 years ago. I can't imagine prices going DOWN in that time.... I don't know of any places that charge so little that $20 would cover the cut and the tip.

@59 Cosmetology schools, depending on where you go, $20 will cover both the hair cut charge and the tip. The school I go to, it only costs $9.10 for a regular hair cut.

I live in Idaho where everything is cheaper usually. The schools? Ya get what ya pay for....I've seen painfully awful cuts come out of there...I'd rather risk my own lack of shear skill, lol

I live in Idaho as well (but in a teeny tiny town), and haircuts are still expensive. It's better for me to go out and buy hair cutting scissors and thinning shears and just cut it myself. Although I know that isn't for everybody, it sure works for me.
