Uneven Haircuts

Barbers strike me as a practical lot.  Which makes this pricing structure seem especially strange to me.

I mean, isn’t a kid going to have less overall hair than an adult?  I understand that an adult head may have less coverage percentage-wise, but the larger head-radius more than makes up for the lower proportion of hair.  I’ve got to believe that the price-per-hair is considerably higher for a child than an adult under this pricing system.

Of course, I would not be so naive as to expect understandable pricing structures from hair stylists.

    I think the price per hair is higher for kids because of the extra care, attention, and patience required by the barber for the kids AND their parents. 🙂

    An excellent point. I suppose Price of Haircut is a function of many variables, not just amount of hair!

    If we’re going by price per volume of hair, then beard trim is way overpriced, right?

    Also, I’ve certainly seen some backs that do indeed merit the highest price of the bunch. Gross.
