Everyone knows women could spend a lot of money on their hair, skin care, shoes, bags, clothes, and etc. Not everyone spends a ton of money on personal care, but they sure can quickly add up. But we usually don’t expect men to drop a pretty big chunk of money for their personal care and I’m specifically talking about their hair. Well, I didn’t at least. So after I married my hubby and told him I can color his hair at home instead of spending money at the salon, I was quite shocked to find that my offer got rejected.
Here’s how much he spends on his hair.
Bi weekly hair cut with tip $30.00
Quarterly hair color with tip $60.00
It’s not much in the big scheme of things, but I thought saving around $200.00 annually for hair coloring at home was worth not going to the hair salon. Especially since he gets a hair cut every other week. His reasons for getting hair color at the salon are that he had a bad at-home hair color experience before and he doesn’t want to stop going to a hair salon just because he’s a man. (I may have said something about him being too picky for a guy and should just do it at home.)
I guess I’m used to seeing my brother color and cut his own hair most of his life that I feel like what my hubby’s paying for his hair is waste of money. I used to color my own hair all the time and there was no problem. I just want him to let me try once to see that it’s not going to mess up his hair or make it fall out or whatever he’s thinking that might happen.
Do you guys think I’m being too cheap to my hubby? How much do you pay for men’s hair cut or hair color?
