How much would you be willing to pay for a haircut? For a long time I thought that one A quick visit to my hairdresser should not cost me more than $ 20. I not only have a tight budget, it always went well for me, which means I know it's different for everyone, the average cost in the US for a haircut for men according to the Professional Beauty Association $ 28. In urban cities such as New York, San Francisco and Chicago, prices tend to be much higher.
High-quality salons for men, however, can be found almost everywhere and the haircuts in these places can be basic service for most at $ 50. To be honest, I've always been interested to see what it's like for men who pay a pretty penny for it h cut her hair in a chic salon. Like many men, I want my hair to look as good as they can, and perhaps a high-end salon offers that. But is a more expensive haircut really worth the price? I've thought about this question when I arranged a haircut with celebrity hairdressers Oscar Blandi owner of the Oscar Blandi salon in East Midtown Manhattan, the largest salon in New York City. Each of his stylists costs between $ 80 and $ 200 for a normal haircut. While this may seem exaggerated to the average customer, I was curious to find out for myself and to see if it was really anything other than the haircut that I would normally pay $ 20 for.
Upon entering the salon on the second floor on Madison Avenue, I was immediately drawn to how huge it was. A huge amount of light rays through the floor-to-ceiling windows surrounding the 13,000-square-foot space. After reporting to the friendly receptionist, I surrendered to my affiliation and wrapped myself up in an Oscar Blandi branded robe. I went through all of them to take a seat at Oscar's Station and noticed the clientele, which consisted mainly of older, rich-looking women with expensive bags and designer shoes. At some point I felt like a scam that favors a place with so much wealth and bougie flavor. I quickly tried to let go of my insecurity and made an effort to pretend that I belonged to it and accepted a bottle of water offered to me as he smiled at the staff.
Finally Oscar made his way and introduced himself to me before we started. After a short talk, I told him how I wanted to have my hair cut. He thought about my high skin-fading appeal and offered something else instead. "I do not think it should be that short," he suggested. "This kind of look is worn everywhere, you need something more classic."
While distracted by his dullness, I thought he knew best. Who should I disagree with someone who cuts Jimmy Fallon's hair and does his magic on Tom Cruise? When he wanted to cut my hair, he began to talk more about his salon, tips for choosing a barber, and why he should choose a high-end salon for a haircut.
