Barber shop goes viral for charging over $1,000 for haircuts

While there’s no way to know if the screenshot is authentic, it’s undoubtedly a hefty price for a haircut. However, it’s not uncommon for the rich and famous to dabble in expensive haircuts, especially if they want it done by someone who knows what they’re doing.

Last year, Bad Boy Records founder Diddy revealed that he never gets a haircut that costs less than $1,000. In fact, he sometimes gets five haircuts a day. “Oh yeah, so this just came in, it’s $1,000 a cut,” he said, per HipHop DX. “No really, this is my barbershop, and I share it with the world and it’s one of the best, but it’s like I’m out, out, so it’s like I need my hair done every five minutes… My daily price is $5,000 and I’m just telling you the whole truth. This is my barber Marcus, I love you bro. Don’t take anything less than $1,000 from me. Know your worth king.

Diddy isn’t the only rapper who loses big bucks to get his hair done. In recent years, Drake has started sporting a variety of braided hairstyles. He also has a hair braider, Bri Marie, who spoke to Complex about how he landed the lucrative gig last year.

Earlier this year, former NBA player Jalen Rose said he believed men should spend at least $100 on their haircuts, according to the Milwaukee Newspaper Sentinel.

Dallas Cowboys linebacker Micah Parsons tweeted last year that he was shocked to discover his barber had raised the price of his house call. “My barber raised the price of his home visits to 200!!!” he tweeted. “I could grow an afro now!” She later clarified that he meant “no disrespect to barbers” with the comment and admitted that she didn’t like his looks enough about him to spend $200 on a haircut. “If I were a model, yes, my looks matter, but I’m a football player!! I wear a helmet all game!” He added. “No one is at home wondering how I look under the helmet!!”
