Haircuts: How low can you go?
Haircuts . . . from $4.99 in Charlotte, NC to $499.00 in Beverly Hills, California. My Goodness. What a range? At the $500 price point, a plush robe and slippers, light lunch, and some aromatherapy are probably included.
At a $5.00 price point, then you may still get a $500 haircut without the extra "bells and whistles." It is a toss up. Amazingly, at $500, a customer still could hate the new haircut. It could be too edgy or too short.
I really want to raise awareness of different territories. Can a hairstylist who is used to charging $300 for a haircut transfer to North Carolina and still charge $300 for a haircut? I feel that I can safely say . . . the hairstylist needs to transfer with some clientele or look at another career. There is slim to no chance of surviving in the North Carolina area with $300 haircuts while also being new to the area.
Something to think about . . .
