Ya, its hard when you get hooked! LOL! I had a groupon for this guy for a cut and partial highlights, I paid extra to have him just overall color it, so I don't even know what it would cost to have it fully colored. I should call him and ask. He added a toner to my color which I had never had done before, it got rid of the ashiness of my color which i think was key! When we go to Michigan next summer I will have my old stylist do the color for me, just debating if I want to wait that long or not. Maybe I'll wait and use my birthday money from my mom and grandmother next month to get it done again.

So now I don't feel bad after reading how much you guys pay for haircuts. 

The lady I go to was from a church we went to years ago.  Her daughter and Kristen were the same age- and when they were little friends.  So it's kind of nice seeing her- I get to hear how her daughter's doing, how people at the church we used to go to are doing (it has since closed but many people there go to her for haircuts).  Kind of like the Cheers of hairdressers LOL.

Her hair cuts are $25.  I get mine highlighted to hide the grey- that's $50.  But she's operating a business out of her own home, she's the only employee, so that's why her rates are what they are.  I think they're comparable to what local salons charge- I don't really know since I haven't been to one in years......

I keep telling her if/when she retires (she's several years older than me and her husband had a stroke earlier this year) don't know what I'll do.  Her daughter is currently in beauty school, I'm assuming that she may just help her mom/ take over her business one day........

Cheryl, when I lived back in Michigan, my stylist I went to school with, she was a year older and her brother was a good friend of mine was a year younger. I would get cut and highlights done for $60, and she worked in a regular salon. It was such a shell shock to come down here and pay $50-60 for a haircut and $150 for highlights! That's partially why I went to doing my hair color from a box, but once in a great while I splurge and have it done professionally.
