I am glad to find this question about hairdressers, since I was going to ask the same thing. I would not pay $85 for a haircut,even if it was great!. I don't have the funds, but I just wouldnt anyway; that's outrageous!
I was thinking of trying Maffeos, so it's good to see a couple of positive comments here. I have short hair also, and so often when you say "cut it short" they think you mean 1/2 inch....although I can see how they might have been burned in the past; cutting too much off makes people hysterical
btw I don't think the Brian from Superstar Challenge owned his own salon.
