Here we go with this $50 haircut sh-t.
 

 

I'm not knocking the homie business model because the backlash alone brings interest and potential clients. Brilliant.


But he ain't trying to cut yall regular post office working a*s n*ggas, he clearly looking for big fish like celebrities and public figures.

fu*k all the pocket watching, I'm growing locs so more power to him but his demographics and location does not equate fluctuations.

n*gga said he gonna go up to $100 image

n*gga where? His clientele seems to be n*ggas his age around his way and I know n*ggas ain't getting money like that to drop 100 every week or 2.

And the bi*ches in the thread got nerves. Talking about they MONTHLY hair dos cost over 200. Yeah that last over a month. And they know damn well they ain't paying every fu*king time.



My barber cuts celebrities hair too and I never gave that n*gga more than 30. Don't know what he charge them ballin n*ggas but that's my price and I dont even get full cuts, just lines and fades.


It might be a trend

I mean if people are willing to pay it, then thats on them lol. First of all I would personally like to say I cut my own hair. I have since highschool. I'd never pay 50 bucks for a cat to cut my hair.

However, this is people's living. From a technical and ethical standpoint, the same way gas, electricity, food, people's salaries, etc have all gone up, is the same way barbers have to charge more. The same way a truck driver makes more in 2020 than he did in 2000 is the same way barber should make more. It's technically a career. It would be different if he was just doing it on the side.

My problem with some of these new barbers come in and they start chargin cats tons of money for fake hairlines and other silly gimmicks that don't even take alot of true craftsmanship. a bunch of sharpie shortcuts. Charging more for less. Man back in the day, you could get quality fades and lineups with none of the funny stuff. If a barber can get give a good quality cut without the gimmicks and charge cats fairly, I'm for it.

See I feel you. But homie above had it right. 50 to 100, there has to be innovative ways to take care my hair.

Can't be just getting cuts just for that sh*t to grow back every week. Has to be some hairline longevity.

Don't do me like health care and just get me hooked on the pills then raise the price.


Give a n*gga the cure

I would pay the 50, and I’m not even Cappin to try to sound like a baller,I’d pay the 50 but I wouldn’t go frequently. Only reason I would because dude 19 with a legit Hussle he could be out here robbin and k*lling n*ggas but he’s trying to get it the honest way, and anybody trying to run an honest grind I’ll support. Support your local black businesses man.

I would pay $50 too if it included the little design and sh*t.

I already pay $20 + $10 tip I probably wouldn't tip though if I paid $50

i know of barbers that charge $50.....but they come to your home or wherever you are located and hook u up.

If you go in to their shop though, a cut is $25

cant hate on dude though. He isnt doing anything wrong, or anything illegal. If people are willing to pay that price.....then no big deal. Thats their choice.

I wouldnt pay $50 though, nah thats a bit too high imo.

Some barbers make a LOT of money.
There are many approaches you can take. You can charge a reasonable affordable price and get a lot of clients.....OR...you can have less customers, charge a high price and go after the deep pocket customers.

It really depends on what route the barber wants to go.

I pay $60 for a haircut but it comes with a black mask treatment, hot towel, razor and a scalp massage. She also washes my hair after I get it cut.

My barber is a female but she can cut better than any person I’ve let cut my hair so far. She has never fu*ked up my edge up and has very good attention to detail.

To each his own but I can tell the difference between a $30 haircut and a $60 haircut.
