My First Truly Noticable Sign Of Inflation Going Up


Recommended Posts

Went for my ears lowering last night. (aka a haircut)

Usual price for gents bog standard short back and sides = £5

now £6

Looks like I'll be growing my hair!

I've asked for an immediate 20% pay increase based on that anacdote...

One of the best investments I have ever made is in a pair of gents hair clippers. They cost about £20 and last about 2 years each. If the price of a trim is £6, then I save that every 2 weeks for 2 years = £312, not to count the time saved travelling to the barbers and waiting in the queue as well

Best,

L

When you go just ask for an extra short cut, then let your hair grow longer than usual before you go back. Voila! Inflation monster defeated.

I kinda did this with my dental hygienst. She likes people to visit her every 3 months and used to charge £30 for half an hour. Then she put the price up to £35 so now I go every 4 months.

My actual dentist charges £60 for a three minute peek in the mouth -- that's a rip off!

My barber hasn't put his prices up for years, but he's an old codger who lives above the shop and probably paid off the mortgage back in the 1950s.

I had my hair done the other day – cost: £40.

That said, my hair is a work of art – kind of your standard back comb with root boost. There are 15 people working on it at any 1 time, in years to come people will get my hair out of storage just to marvel at the possibilities.

Plus, I got to have the breasts of a 17 year old girl on my shoulders for 40 mins; some people would pay £40 just for that.

On the subject of cheap v expensive haircuts, please refer to this post.

Why bother paying someone to do your hair if you're a bloke

Get a hair clipper for £15 and do it yourself

I've done it like that for years. Probably saved myself hundrends of pounds.

Just do it small and the same all over. Girls like it like that.

No one suspects I do my own and are impressed when I say so. Tricky bit is at the back- always worth checking this with someone but you can do this yourself too after a while.

It scares me how much women's haircuts cost :rolleyes:

Yeah me and my old student mates did this. A few of us are losing our hair now but most of us still do the clipper thing. I always found it hard to do the back unless I had a mirror system setup.
