I used to spend over $50 every 6 weeks to color my hair. That was cheaper than a salon actually, since she was a friend who did hair out of her home. At the salon, I would probably have spent around $120 each time due to length of hair and having highlights as well as coloring my roots.
So, here’s the yearly cost:
|Salon||$120 per color x 9 times a year = $1080 on hair-coloring per year|
|Licensed stylist in their home||$50 per color x 9 times a year = $450 on hair-coloring per year|
Now let’s take a look at home coloring options.
I’ve used several home coloring products over the years. I personally avoid anything sold at a super market and choose my products at Sally Beauty. The products at Sally Beauty tell you what color the base is (let’s you know how much red or green is in the color) and have a variety of options on shades.
Home Hair-coloring Costs
|Super Market Pre-packaged Hair-color||$8 per color x 9 times a year = $72 on hair-coloring per year|
|Sally Beauty Supply||$8 per color x 9 times a year = $72 on hair-coloring per year|
Wow! By skipping the salon and learning to do your own hair-coloring, you can save yourself $380-$1000 a year.
