I pay $50 + $15 tip, every 5-6 weeks. I also go in for a free neck trim in between. The major difference is that my hairstylist uses a razor instead of clippers, which creates a textured look. One can easily tell the difference as each hair will vary as much as half an inch in length (my hair is about 1.5 to 2 inches long). I don't have my hair "made up" right now as I just got out of the shower; maybe I'll post pics later. I spent over an hour taking over 100 photos of myself with my digicam's self-timer and only ended up with a single picture that I was OK with. I guess that means I'm too self-conscious -- and a poor photographer.
