Holy macaroni....

Postby highlandcow » Tue Mar 13, 2012 10:14 pm

I've just been to the hairdressers. I knew it was going to be an expensive one as it's a nice place and I had colours and highlights etc....but when the bill came (I can hardly type this) it was £110! I nearly hit the floor in shock but what could I do, I paid up! In fairness, it's a lovely cut but come on, £110?!

I'm trying to justify it by thinking well it's my birthday on Saturday but I'm having trouble.

What's the moat you've spent on something frivolous (whether you meant to or not)?

I spent £800 on a 'toy' car :D

Okay, it was a real manly toy with a real engine and all, but ultimately it was just a toy, so you see your £110 hair cut is a bargain ha! I'm starting to resent paying £8 for mine :P

I have heard of people paying more than that if it makes you feel better Highlandcow. If it's a really good cut, it will last and look good for ages too.

There is a milkshake place in my town, that sells a Millionaires shake, which has goldleaf in it, and costs a whopping 12 quid.

£12 for a milkshake?!

I dont like paying £12 for a bottle of wine.


Sometimes I wonder if I have a warped perception of how much things cost. But then compared to my Mum and sister I'm really extravagent! My Mum was completely shocked that I'd spent £120 on a pair of boots, she went on and on about it as though it was an insane thing to do, but all my friends are buying like £400 handbags and stuff!

Yeh I was like, you can buy a book for less than that!

120 is fair enough, if I could afford boots at 400 I really would. My Mum gets upset because I pay 36 quid on my hair but then she didn't like that I had it cut short.

I usually spend about £45 getting my hair cut, which i think is EXTORTIONATE considering I dont have it coloured (I always do it red, so I just do it myself. Got pretty good now - dont dye the bathroom or anything :) haha). Although lately I have been buying groupons when they come up

OMG I pay £12 to get my hair cut and it's more than half way down my back. I only use root touch up (£5) as I don't dye my hair to get a different colour (it's to cover the greys that are starting to sprout 8-[ , I am a nan now so I am allowed them :P )

However we all have our achilles heels mine is handbags, shoes and sunglasses. I spent £350 before on a pair of sunnies I desparately wanted. However i love a bargin and generally want the max for my money so I have to really really like something to indulge. Also if it cost alot I use it to death usually.

Here is a great site for those who love a bargin, it's almost disposable clothing at these prices

I pay £20 to get my hair cut (just a wash and cut, no colour). I'm happy enough with that. You really couldn't get it done for any less than that in the area where I live I don't think.

I really glad I'm not the only one! I was fretting about this quite a bit. I haven't told anyone else it was so much for fear they'd think I was insane. :o
It's a city centre place, so I knew it was going to be more expensive. It's just....now it looks so pretty!

Last time it was £80 which I was surprised at, so I thought it'd be £80 again this time. But still, my bills and rent are paid I'm going to be getting some money for my birthday so I can probably write this one off. I think next time I'll ask them how much it will be when I make the booking though....

That is quite a lot, considering it's just for the heads. You'd think the "body" of it would be the more expensive bit.
Still...at least that's for 2, not for 1! :D

I hate to be a clone so I had to ensure you all lived far enough away before I revealed my secret. :D
