I have to go every 2 months because of the grey but at this rate I won't be able to afford it. I get my hair cut every 4 months.
Is there anything else I could use to cover up grey at the roots?
What do you recommend?
You must have plenty of buck to throw around if you would even consider such a ridiculous price. I color my own hair. For my cuts, I go to a nice local salon that charges around $30-35.

It depends on whether you like her service or not. Do you feel she has cut your hair better than most others you have been to in the past? Or is your haircut "simple" and can be duplicated by almost anyone? Same for color....does she give comments? Advice? Most salons carry at least two lines of color....so she "should" be saying something about whether one does better for your hair or not, etc.

All in all, other posters are correct. If you are questioning it, you need to find someone else. I pay what I consider to be very reasonable prices for foils at my salon ($85) and very high price for a cut ($50) but I go to a "senior" stylist and feel he is worth it based on his actions and talent. In my opinion, $178 is beyond ridiculous......but then again, I only do highlights and not all over color so I don't have the need for root touchup......yet.

My stylist charges $85 for a cut and highlight. I'm not sure what she charges for a regular haircut, because I rarely get just a cut. I would never color it myself...the outcome would not be pretty! I'd rather just pay to have it done.

My old hairsylist charged $110 for a cut but then the place was bought out and became a high volume salon and the quality suffered. So I found a private salon and the girl charges $40 for a cut/wash/blow-dry and style and I tip $20. But every place is different because I've gotten 40 dollar cuts to $180 cuts. BTW the $180 was not worth it and it was more for the atmosphere and location that it cost so much! Pricing is just all over the place.

If you find value then it's worth it. My guy charged $100 per cut, and it was worth it. I'm now down to $75 as a preferred customer. /lol But my hair is long, and I don't have bangs or anything, so I only see him every 6 months. The cut lasts that long.

I color my own hair. It's just a dark brown and I keep it that way.

Thats the normal rate where I live, 125-200 for cut and hilights depending on the length of hair and how much hilightings done, you may be able to find a cheaper price in a chain salon,but unless the stylist has a good reputation for their work, you're taking a chance.

No it's not. A rip off is telling you one price then charging you something else.

You have every right to find a place that is within your budget, but to say someone is ripping people off because you don't agree with the price is idiotic.
