How much for a haircut?

I've just been browsing this website. It reckons that in Roman times a barber would charge 2 Denarii for a hair cut.  Given that a Denarius contains just under 4 grams of silver, (£2.50) it makes a  roman haircut cost £5 using today's silver bullion price.

Even at pensioner rates the best I can get is £8 for a haircut in Derbyshire. I must remember to tell my barber that he is overcharging.

Now Zen, but a +Net residue.

No published prices on the website. They'd probably give me tourist prices Wink

Re: How much for a haircut?

If it's £5 to get a single hair cut how much would it be for the whole head! Roll eyes

On a more serious note, up here in the Border's the less hirsute get a discount with the cheapest (adult) cut I've seen being £8 so £5 is a bargain.

I've cut my own hair for well over a decade

A plus to not having much. Hair that is.

Re: How much for a haircut?

A  xxxxxxman goes into the barbers and asks how much for a haircut ?

Barber says £8

×××××man says how much for a shave ?

Barber says £5

xxxxxman says, shave my head.

Cheesy

Why the xxxxx before the word man, well in these politically correct times you cannot refer to anyone by country when making jokes or the PC brigade will be on to you.

Cost of haircut for me......nothing.

Why ?

Simple, swmbo cuts it once a month, for some odd but fortunate reason my hair grows like mad.

Re: How much for a haircut?

Hated having my haircut ever since the days of short back and sides as a nipper back in the 50s. The 60s were all about long hair and from the early 70s onwards I've always cut my own by keeping it short with a beard trimmer - and still do in fact. Must have saved myself a small fortune truth be told. 

I know where I am, I've been lost here before.

Re: How much for a haircut?

£6.- wrinkly rate. And it's not cheap because I'm bald. I've quite a crop, but not the virility to go with it.Sad

No one has to agree with my opinion, but in the time I have left a miracle would be nice.

Re: How much for a haircut?

£5 in a few places round here.

I invested in some clippers and haven't paid for a haircut in about 20 years.
