I started cutting my own hair when local prices went up to $8 many years ago. I suspect there are lots of barbers in NYC who will cut your hair for less than $150; it just depends on which barbershop you want to be seen in. ;-)

When I retired, I started cutting my own hair (and stopped coloring it). When I moved to NYC to babysit my grandson, DD persuaded me to see her trainee hairdresser for some thing like $35 or $50. Alas, he had health problems and left the job. So I saw the next trainee, but he became a full-fledged pro charging $150.

While wandering Chelsea one day, I stumbled across a place that looked like a barbershop but gave women's haircuts for $14 (yes, way!). OK, not quite as good as the pricey cut, and no freshly laundered robe to put on in a changing room, no pricey hair products, no hand massage, no hour-long cut, and the ambiance was about like a cheap dive. BUt $14 + $3 tip--that gets me out of my 2-minute self-cut (grab a hank, cut, grab next hank, cut, stop when, curly hair is very forgiving ;-)
