A $1,000 haircut may sound crazy, but not to people who can pay.

The reason is simple: Celebs are willing to pay for celebrity services. Between demanding, round-the-clock schedules, house calls, hotel rooms and a steep calendar of events that calls for looking camera-ready at all times, it’s easy to understand why.

Don’t believe us? Bad Boy Records founder Diddy (aka Sean Combs, P. Diddy or Puff Daddy) revealed that he never gets a haircut that costs less than $1,000…sometimes up to five times per day. (That’s right: $5,000 per day on haircuts!) Rapper Lil Baby once paid $420 for a haircut during an Instagram Live in 2021, and Kanye West used to pay $500 for a haircut when he was on tour with Rihanna in 2010, per her father, Ronald Fenty.
….Which is why Dallas Cowboys linebacker Micah Parsons‘ barber recently upped his ticket to $200 per haircut. While $1,000 haircuts may not be on the menu at your salon, know your clientele: How much are they willing and able to pay? While it’s important not to alienate your client base with a sharp hikes in price, don’t be afraid to charge your worth—especially if you’ve picked up new skills or built upon your education.
