Weekly Roundup: Haircuts, money and women

by Kristina on September 6, 2013 · 7 comments

Good morning Dinks.  It’s Friday…WOOT WOOT.  Nothing much happened in my week so not too much to talk about.  I finally got to see the Steve Jobs movie…loved it.  Today after work I am getting my haircut.  I know this seems like a ridiculous discussion topic but please keep reading…there is a point to my story.D

I shamefully say that at almost 33 years old (next month) my grey hair is starting to creep through my natural shade of brown.  So as of today I am going to be a bottle brunette.

After searching around and price shopping for a new hairdresser I finally found a salon that offers haircuts starting at $55.  This sounds like a great deal to me because my old hair dresser charged $70 plus tax for a haircut.

When I told my father about my supposedly great news his first reaction was “Who the hell pays $70 for a hair cut.”

I am sure that many of our male Dinks just had this same reaction, whereas our lady Dinks might be a little more understanding.  My dad told me that he pays $15 for a hair cut at his barber and if he wants to add in a shave it’s another $10.  Who knew that a day of pampering could only cost $25? Ladies…am I right?

This is just another example of how men and women differ when it comes to money.  What I, as a woman, think is a great deal may seem like a totally outrageous expense to a man.

What do you think?
