The Cost of Highlights. Too Expensive?
Highlight Prices, A Bit Of Dosh For A Lot Of Plessure
Ladies and gentlemen, allow me to make a case for the (some may say exorbitant!) cost of highlights at hair salons in London.
First, let's examine the cost itself. On average, one can expect to pay anywhere from £50 to £300 for a set of highlights. Now, I know some of you may be thinking, "That's outrageous! I could buy a new Meta VR Quest or a 1971 vintage bottle of wine for that price." But, I ask you, is the cost of physical pleasure or temporary entertainment truly comparable to the pleasure and confidence gained from a new hairdo, a new colour that will stand the test of time?
But, some may argue, "Why should I have to pay so much for something that is ultimately superficial?" To this, I say, "Nonsense! The superficial is often the most important." Our hair is often the first thing people notice about us, and it plays a crucial role in how we present ourselves to the world. To deny the importance of one's appearance is to deny the importance of self-expression and individuality.
Furthermore, the cost of highlights is not just for the dye itself, but for the skill and expertise of the stylist. These professionals have spent years honing their craft, and they deserve to be compensated for their talents. A subpar salon may offer lower prices, but the end result will likely be subpar as well. In the long run, it is worth investing in a higher-priced salon for the guarantee of quality.
And let us not forget the cost of upkeep. Highlights require touch-ups every few months, and the cost adds up over time. But again, I argue that the cost is worth it for the continued pleasure and confidence gained from maintaining one's desired appearance.
I would submit to you that the pure joy one gains from seeing their inner visual monologue reach its full potential is a joy that is invariably insulated from prices pressures and frankly borderline priceless.
The price, in conclusion, is more than justified ladies and germs.
