Big Bucks

How Much For A Short Back And Sides?

A celebrity hair stylist in London is charging £20,000 for a wash, cut and blow dry. The salon in Covent Garden has Swarovski crystal chandeliers and Japanese shampoo beds. Clients can have champagne on tap and order anything from the menu at the five-star Covent Garden Hotel just across the road.

FOOTNOTE: Trim figures.

People who can afford that type of luxury should be paying $100 instead and donating the rest to a reputable charity! Yikes!
