Help with price list please !

    Recommended Posts

    Hi people !

    We will be on our way in 8 wks time. I am trying to work out a competitive price list for my hairdressing, but not really sure on how to price it. I've tried looking at salons and thinking I have to come in a lot cheaper, but what would really help me is if anyone minds sharing (or pm me) the prices they pay for a mobile hairdresser. I have over 20 yrs experience working for myself in the UK and to give you an idea of how competitive I am here, I charge £8 for a gents cut, £10 for ladies, £6 for kids, colours and cuts from £30.

    I did think about just converting my prices but obviously I have to consider the cost of living in relation to what I earn:skeptical:

    Hairdressers charge a fortune here. If you charge those prices you will have a queue of customers.

    I paid $175 for a colour at an average shopping centre hair salon and $140 for a mobile hairdresser to come to my home. It was no different than ive had in the Uk, my mobile hairdresser used to charge me £25.

     

    Hence my roots are somewhat bigger between colours here...lol

    Thanks for that info,

    I won't be charging anywhere near those prices, so maybe when I get there your roots won't need to get as long !!

    Hi

     

    I go to a 'pom' hairdresser...he charges $100 for colour and cut and $25 for a cut.

     

     

    I took my daughter to get her hair highlighted in our local shopping centre in Seaford and he charged us $45 for half a head - did a really good job too.

     

     

    Hope this helps

    Last visit to our local hairdressers, small suburban shopping centre, my husband paid $16 at the barbers for a cut and I paid $149 for a few foils, colour, cut and style. I thought it was a bit expensive as I usually pay around $100 for regrowth and just foils, plus cut and style.

    I do hate the way hairdressers here ask if you want it dried. I can't believe anyone leaves with wet hair.

    I go to a hairdressers house and she charges me $90 to do my hair cut and colour (past shoulder length hair), and also cuts my 3 childrens hair for this price. When we first arrived I went to a salon and paid $24 for my daughter to have a trim (she was 6 at the time).

    A hairdresser friend does my hair has her own salon room in her house $60 for cut regrowth foils ( have a big mop of thick hair) and blowdry.

     

    Keep a fair price and a good hair cut and the poms will love you. Hubby and I were hairdressers when we 1st came out Ozzies (men) dont seem to be bothered about their hair they seem to go for price. A ozzie friend had his hair cut at another pommie friends barbers said he had the best haitcut he had ever had but wont go back cos he charges $20 I almost fell of my chair laughing lol

    Hi again, and thanks everyone for the input, here in the UK I have never had to advertise as I had the liberty of time to build my business up while the kids were growing up, and I have always prided myself on exactly what you said Tina, and thats a fair price and a good haircut, so with that in mind does anyone mind giving their opinions on these few prices -

    children $11.50

    gents $15

    ladies cut $19.50

    ladies cut and blowdry short hair $28.50

    " " long hair $33.50

     

    Feel free to make any constructive criticism, I won't take offence !!
