Hairdressing Prices: An Hourly Rate
Hairdressing is one of the only professional services where Clients pay a fixed price for a service that can vary considerably.
Clients often do not get the full benefit of a lifestyle and maintenance consultation, being hurried into ‘same as last time’, because a lot of salons are run on 45 minute appointments.
Also, Clients can have very thick, long and curly hair: This means a hairdressing service can take longer than anticipated, especially for a first appointment.
In that situation, salons that do run on 45 minute appointments either add random surplus charges or reduce quality by rushing.
I give my Clients a minimum of one hour to really get the most from the consultation and hairdressing service, at every appointment.
That means a professional blow dry. Not a quick dry.
I simply charge $100 per hour.
