What's the most expensive haircut you've ever gotten? I once spent a little over $100 on a haircut. Yes, it was fabulous, and the only haircut I got (or needed) that entire year; and yes, I'm embarrassed to even write that, because it's gross. But I know that my indulgence doesn't hold a candle to what some people spend on their hair -- namely celebs. Namely, Reese Witherspoon and her reported $1,500 haircut.
Oh, you think $1,500 is too much to spend on a cut, sane person? Well, let me tell you about this haircut -- each strand is cut individually.
Her hair was cut by famed stylist Rossano Ferretti at his Beverly Hills salon. Ferretti apparently rarely ever comes to the United States, unless it's for a major client like Reese. (Fun fact: Kate Middleton was spotted at Ferretti's London salon a few weeks before birth.) He trimmed Reese's locks using "The Ferretti Technique", which treats each strand of hair individually in order to create a full look. Ferretti's site reads: "Each strand of hair has its own structure and movement ... With sensibility and care, the designer treats each strand its own way, in order to achieve the most natural effect. This belief is why haircuts by Metodo Rossano Ferretti are so subtly carved, to create a harmonious image each time. A haircut that is like a work of art."
I'm all for beauty indulgences now and again, and if I had the money, I'm not ashamed to admit it, I'd totally get expensive haircuts and facials and whatnot all the time. But I really don't think under any circumstance I'd ever get a $1,500 haircut on principle alone. That's farking ridiculous. Especially for a person like Reese, who already has nice hair.
In other news, who the hell has the time or wants to sit in a salon chair while each strand of hair is cut individually? I'd imagine it would start getting unrelaxing at around the six-hour mark. Reese, you cray.
Would you ever spend this much on a haircut?
