Default Todays question Friday 3-07-08

Good morning everyone
Yay it is Friday !!!! A very rainy one here in NE FL
As those of you that visit the exercise thread know I have had "haircut" issues this past week lol yesterday was #3 and she was able to fix the "oops" from the first 2 lol hubby teased me that I spent more on haircuts in the past week than he does in 6 months so it gave me the idea for

Todays question :

How much do you usually pay to have your hair cut ?


Today in history:

March 7, 1857 Baseball decides 9 innings constitutes an official game, not 9 runs hmmm guess they figured that it might take way to long to get to 9 runs. I don't think they had lighted baseball fields back then.

Word of the day :

cabal \kuh-BAHL; kuh-BAL\, noun:
1. A secret, conspiratorial association of plotters or intriguers whose purpose is usually to bring about an overturn especially in public affairs.


Today is :

National Cereal Day
and
National Middle Name Pride Day

Haircut 1 was $39 , 2 was $20 3rd and final to fix the other 2 was gulp $55 but she spent almost 45 mins and it is a rather "sassy" new look

lol I took our puppy Lola to the groomer and there went another $55

My cuts are $35 about every 6 weeks. Fair price I think, but I'm still getting used to it because before our move to NEFL and the new me, I always did it for free with my kitchen scissors ;-)

I believe $25.00 for a regular cut, before tip, and then they charge another $5.00 for a blowout? Now I know that price is very reasonable but if they wet your head shouldn't you be entitled to have it dried? Oh, and middle name pride day? I don't really like mine and its not a family name or anything, just from a song my Mom liked.

Well, when I'm hot and selling houses I pay $45 + tip for haircut. But when I'm poor and not making sales, I pay $13 + tip.

Let's just say this year so far I'm not getting haircuts at all.

The price of my cuts depends on the color service I am getting done, as I have a bit of gray on top I like to cover. Every 6 weeks I alternate between getting highlights and all over color and the cut is included in the price. My stylist just recently moved from a big salon to renting a booth at a very small one and her prices, thankfully, dropped. I used to pay around $135 with tip, I know..., but now I pay about $85 with tip which is pretty cheap around here for color and cut.

Just finished eating some Corn Pops...yum!

My middle name is Lyn. I was named after a friend of my mothers and when you put it together with my first name, it sounds very "dixie".

Happy Friday everyone!

Morning all. I pay $23 at a local Aveda salon and go every 6 weeks, tip $10 because she's awesome. Highlights and cut every 3rd cut come to $85 plus $20 tip.

Middle names-mine is bland old Anne but my youngest granddaughter's is Storm-she hates it, we love it-and have no idea why our daughter picked it.

Great Friday all.

How much do you usually pay to have your hair cut ? ...last time I went to one of those rip off artists it cost me $18. Now Auntie Batz cuts my hair and I get it the way I want it...not the way some ditzo thinks it should be. I have what is called the "John Gotti hairdo" and anyone who tries to "modify" that is in big troubleMarch 7, 1857 Baseball decides 9 innings constitutes an official game, not 9 runs hmmm guess they figured that it might take way to long to get to 9 runs. I don't think they had lighted baseball fields back then...GO RED SOX

OK, back in NNY, I paid about $30, inc. tip. Here, I found a place that charges seniors (62+) $10, but since I'm not there yet, I pay $15 +$3 tip. The first time I went there, I watched how the people looked when they came out of the chair - lots of geezers and geezerettes down here, and I'm not quite ready to look like that, even tho I leave my hair gray. Anyway, there's this one young lady who had good hair herself and was doing some more "modern" looks, so I glommed onto her and have been very happy.

Nat'l Cereal day - I had frosted mini wheats (maple/brown sugar) and DH had froot loops.

Middle name day - boring. Ann.
