Women's hair usually (but not always) does involve more work, so I don't think that is unfair. If it is just a standard trim, however, then the price should be the same. Maybe prices should be based on the kind of hair/stye you have when you go in, but that would just make things complicated, and customers would probably complain they are being charged too much compared to someone else.
A woman's hair may need to be 'styled'.
That is a whole different ball-game, it can if you go to a top end hairdresser about 30-40 minutes.
Men, they just have a 'cut'...sure some have a style cut, but it's nothing compared to doing women's hair.
Women demand it to be perrrrfect!
Men could really care less, as far as that...unless he's getting married that day.
No I don't consider it unfair, I would hate to have my hair cut, with the amount of care a man's hair is cut...because it is totally different.
It would be okay if they charged more for a different style, but sometimes they charge more for the exact same thing. I have been charged more for a simple trim of my long, straight hair than a male friend who had straight hair of the same length. Both cuts took the same length of time. There is no reason why mine should have been more expensive. I think they charge more just because women put up with it.
Absolutely - it's so expensive being a woman considering we're supposed to wear makeup, change clothes with the fashions and pay more for hair cuts and stockings that get holes in them with great regularity. Couple all those expectations with an on average lower income than male counterparts and it's
very unjust being a woman.
Ok, trick question, so no simple yes/no answer.
In the past and in general, women had/have either more, longer or a style, more so than men, on average. But, that does not explain why a man and a woman with the same length/style/cut should have the woman paying more.
So, on par, that is not fair, and perhaps it should be done to a time, ie $ per 15 min or such. Many guys are doing the big hair thing more and more so the parity is disappearing.
I wonder if chickies get the same quote for a short back 'n' sides as blokies?
So, when you book and get a quote, say your hair is getting cut, not the part of your body that makes you a man or a woman, and hence the price should reflect the job, not the gender.
