So building on the beauty threads I wondered about hair
Do you go to salon or do it at home? How much do you spend on it??
Hair is definitely my thing. Like smokers just find the money for their habit no matter how skint they are, I can usually do the same for my barnet! I think its because I just can't embrase being ginger, although I equally think there isn't anythig worse than a ginger person trying to sport a crazy colour hair which is obviously dyed. I try and meet a middle ground and I hope I pull it off ok! I used to have it done every 8 weeks but I can't keep on top of that now. For a full head of highlights, cut, blow dry and straighten its about £150. I use to always use salon shampoo and condition and products galore but not these days.

I go to the salon every 6-7 weeks (usually 6) to have a full head colour, cut and finish, and sometimes a conditioning treatment. It's supposed to cost £86 (without the conditioning treatment, that's about another £10), but because I go on a Thursday when they have a 1/3 off colours, it costs me about £72 instead - just happens to be my day off work! I still buy my shampoo from there which costs about £15 I think, but a bottle lasts me ages - I get Moroccanoil conditioner online as well as Moroccanoil treatment as they don't sell them any more, plus it's cheaper!

150?!! You know I'd always do your hair no problem?!?
I do my own, until it needs a full head woven, I can only do a half head myself. I then put a toner over it. I can't bear to pay salon prices, I'm lucky thou because my mum is also a hairdresser.

Honestly my hair is the last thing I pay out on. I'm all about the body and makeup
I go to a salon once every what 6months I reckon and have a cut & colour then. Usually under £100 as I go when offers are on. I'm terrible.

Ah thanks chick!!! I have a phobia of hairdressers....is that ridiculous?? When I was a kid my mum let a trainee "trim" my hair. I say trim loosely as I ended up walking out the place with a proper boys haircut. People used to say to my parents.."hasn't your son got lovely red hair" and they never corrected them. Hey even dressed me in track suits! I'm scarred for life!!
I wouldn't mind a lesson in doing hair styles though, I really lack imagination as to what to do with it, and often just scrape it back or straighten it at the very best lol xxx
i colour my own but then i am a hairstylist, i too can't bear to pay salon prices for colours, i go to the local salon every three to four months for a dry trim £7.50 so it's had a good cut but i cut my own inbetween.

Well mine is really boring compared to all of you. I have a cut every 6-8 weeks. Mobile hairdresser £20. Don't like my natural colour (mousy brown) but after spending a few years of having it blonde needed to grow it out to get my hair in better condition. Jealous of you brunette ladies, wish i could pull it off but i am too pale.

I get it cut once every couple of months and half a head of highlights every other time I go. The thing I do splash out on is fancy salon straightening protector spray stuff as I frazzled my hair a few years back and I was rocking the scarecrow look for a fair few months - too scared to stop using it now!

Cut and colour every 6 weeks in a salon. They thin it out too as its ridiculously thick. I get a deep conditioning treatment too. Its usually £85. I have the same girl do it (she's done it for 11 years, I'd actually cry if she left! She was considering moving to Dubai and I told her she couldn't go ), I love going to get my hair done, if you go in the afternoon its afternoon tea, early evening and its cheese meat and wine and morning its continental breakfast. I love it

I go every 6- 8 weeks for a cut, blow dry and half head of highlights. It costs around £120. I don't spend out on fancy shampoo or conditioner though as I've never really felt they make much difference (unless anyone can recommend anything excpetional?)
12/02/2013 at 11:37
Once every every three months for a trim (£50) and then H dyes it for me at home every three months too. Did I mention I am really lazy with my hair?!
12/02/2013 at 12:08
I'm so lazy with my hair, I haven't had mine cut for just over a year! I must get mine done very soon. I would usually have a cut, blow dry and straighten. I used to also get low lights done in my hair but haven't had this done since 2010.
12/02/2013 at 12:30
I get it cut once every few months for about £30. That is it really. I will dye it when I start to go grey - only have a few so far though.
12/02/2013 at 12:35
I'm terrible, maybe go to a salon twice a year. I've got my hair back to my natural colour now and I'm growing it so god knows when il go again, although I'm tempted to get my block fringe back? When I go its under £80 for cut and colour. I've had really expencive cuts but just can't justify, or really afford it now.
12/02/2013 at 12:47
I have it cut and highlighted every 6-8 weeks and its a bargain £56 full price. I have spoken to them about my hair and they are going to sort it out for me next time I go in there x

mine gets cut when it gets too long to brush easily, I colour my own, usually red or purple. £14 to have it layered every year or so and 4.99 to dye it once every 4 months!
12/02/2013 at 13:20
I dye it at home when it needs doing and I rarely get it cut these days. I cut in my own fringe before Christmas so I trim that every now and then. Put simply I can't afford to worry about it. It's the bottom of a huge list!
12/02/2013 at 13:45
I'm terrible with my hair. I leave it way too long between cuts. It's probably been 18 months now! But in my defence my hair didnt grow when I was pregnant. And I get scared going because they shout when I haven't been :(
12/02/2013 at 13:48
I've gone and got an appointment to get my hair cut next week
12/02/2013 at 13:56
I cut and colour my own hair.
When I have the pink, it costs about £15 for all the bleach, and the pink dye.
