Lookbook: Summer is gone, but I'm still here

It’s getting more fall and the weather is making my hair all limp. Ugh. My hair definitely has a mind of its own. According to a survey by Tresemme, an average woman spends approx $50,000 on her hair over her lifetime. The survey was further broken down saying we spend on average $160 on shampoos and conditioners, $120 on styling products and $520 on haircuts each year. For those that color their hair, add another $330 to your total cost.

That’s a lot for haircuts! I only spend about $25 on a haircut and I only get one every 4 months. But I do spend decent money on hair related things such as higher end hair products due to hair coloring and getting my hair chemically straightened. My hair is naturally straight but I like that I can just leave my house in the morning without brushing or blow drying my hair at all- It’s $250 per every 10 months I’m willing to pay to sleep in for an extra 10-15 minutes per day.

What about you? How much do you pay for a hair cuts and hair products? Do you color your hair and if so, do you do it yourself or go to a salon?
