Why Asking Your Hairdresser for a Discount Isn’t Always the Right Thing to Do

If you’ve been getting your hair done with the same hairdresser for decades, chances are you have a strong relationship with your hairdresser. They have likely seen you through many life changes, and have become an integral part of your self-care routine.

Additionally, hairdressers are skilled professionals who have likely received additional education and training over the years. This investment in their careers should be reflected in their pricing, as they are providing a higher level of service.

While it’s natural to want to save money on personal expenses, it’s important to remember that the cost of doing business has likely gone up since 2003. This includes the cost of supplies, rent, utilities, insurance, and other expenses. These costs are sometimes passed on to customers in the form of price increases.

What is your contribution ?

It’s also important to keep in mind that hairdressers have personal lives and financial obligations, just like everyone else. They have bills to pay, other vendors to pay, families to support, and futures to plan for.

So if you have been paying the same price for your hair appointments since 2003, it may be time to reconsider. While staying loyal to your price may seem like a way to show your hairdresser appreciation, it may not be enough to keep up with the rising cost of doing business.

By paying the current price for your hair appointments, you are not only supporting your hairdresser, but also valuing the services they provide. Your hairdresser has likely been there for you through thick and thin, and it’s only fair that you return the favor.

It is common for a hairdresser to offer a discount to an assistant or someone starting out in their career. This is often done as a way to help the another client or someone starting out in their career build. However, as the client gains a better position and and climbs the ladder and their wage increases their hairdressers wage should increase accordingly. Pay full price.

This is a matter of fairness and shows appreciation for the hairdresser’s skill and expertise. The hairdresser plays a crucial role in helping the clients look their best and maintain their professional image, and an increase in wage is a way to acknowledge this.

offering a wage increase to a hairdresser after a successful career is not only fair but also demonstrates gratitude for their services. A good hairdresser is a valuable asset, and it’s important to recognize and reward their contributions.

In conclusion, while it may be tempting to negotiate with your hairdresser for a discount, it’s important to consider the reasons behind price increases and to show your appreciation by paying the current price. Your hairdresser deserves your support, and you deserve the best services they have to offer.

Consider the amount of energy it takes to blowout hair and pay accordingly. Forty five dollars at a blow bar is not acceptable. Don’t do it.
