These 7 Hairstylists Have The World's Most Expensive Service Fees!


How much would you pay for a haircut???

When you have a lot of money, it’s typical to spend it on ridiculously expensive things, and you don’t have to worry about anything at all. Some rich celebrities, for instance, are always ready to shell out a lot of cash for hairstyles that cost equal to or more than an average employee's one month salary.

Similarly, hairstylists who are ranked best globally are in very in-demand, hence charging luxurious fees for their services. A haircut worth, at least, $400? With that amount of money, you can already purchase groceries and a sumptuous meal. But to make you exclaim of disbelief (LIKE WHAT???!!!), here are seven hairstylists that have the most expensive service fees in the world.

Sally Hershberger

Sally Hershberger popularized Meg Ryan’s signature hairstyle called the Sally Shag. She owns a salon situated in Manhattan. If you would wish to get your hair done by Sally, then make sure to prepare $600 for the service. Other than Meg Ryan, her other notable and well-distinguished clients include Hilary Clinton and Tom Cruise.

Frederic Fekkai

A celebrity hairstylist born in France, Frederic Fekkai initially charged $300 for his services in the late 90’s. When he became more popular among celebrities - and inflation took a toll -, his rate increased more than a 100 percent, particularly $750. He has also created his own line of shampoo, which costs $22 for one bottle, making him a wealthier entrepreneur. Some of his celebrity clients are Scarlett Johansson, Renée Zellweger, Salma Hayek, Charlize Theron, Uma Thurman, and Meryl Streep.

Orlando Pita

He’s no ordinary hairstylist as Orlando Pita is well-known in the world of runway and show business. He has tended the tresses of supermodels of runways in New York and Paris. He has also styled Hollywood celebrities such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Amanda Seyfried, Julia Roberts, Anne Hathaway, Julianne Moore, and Naomi Campbell. His boutique is located in Manhattan and charges $800 per styling session.

Ted Gibson

Since January 2017, this celebrity hairstylist has raised his rates from $950 to a whopping $1200 for a haircut. In addition to the haircut, clients also receive stress-relieving forms of treatments with shampoo, hot towels, styling, hair blow-dry, and conditioning treatment. He manages his salon located in New York City and has worked with high-profile clients like Zoe Saldana, Angelina Jolie, Renée Zellweger, and Ashley Greene. Gibson is not only known as a celebrity hairdresser, but he has also reached celebrity fame for being the hair expert on the TLC show What Not To Wear.

Rossano Ferretti

Angelina Jolie is one of Ferretti’s A-list clients. Ferretti is popularly known for his innovative hairstyle called ‘The Method.’ He has been a hairstylist to models in major fashion shows and famous personalities like Jennifer Lawrence, Reese Witherspoon, and Kate Middleton. And what is his rate? Hold onto your seats as Ferretti charges $1500 for a single haircut.

Stuart Phillips

He’s the famous hairstylist of British celebrities like Claude Jean Dame, Benicio Toro, and Jamie Oliver. He manages his salon in Covent Garden in London and charges $300 for a standard haircut. But what makes him in the list is a paycheck of $16,000, which he receives from Beverly Lateo for a single haircut. Lateo is a property developer from Italy and Phillips’ highest paying client.

Ken Modestou

Can you pay $24,000 for a haircut? Well, that’s a lot of money to begin with, and it’s already an ideal budget to travel to different countries. However, Hassanal Bolkiah, the Sultan of Brunei, can spare for such luxurious amount to have a haircut done by Ken Modestou.

Modestou is a hairstylist from Britain and has been the Sultan’s hairdresser for 16 years. On normal days, he charges $60 for a standard haircut. But when the Sultan needs his services, he is transported via a luxury flight to the leader’s home, which is located in the Middle East. Modestou is also provided with sophisticated hotel accommodations when he is called by the Sultan.


With all these haircut expenses, you just have to make a consideration of the hairstylist to go for. Expensive services do not always mean they are the best.
