Hi
I`m just starting up as a mobile hairdresser, & was woundering should i charge extra if  people want me to use tongs or straightners, as this is extra time for me. (& time is money)

Hello, Congratulations to you. I can give you a tip did you know if you type in google, yell.com you can enter your mobile buisness for free. now back to the question in hand i charge from 20.50 for cut and blow dry then if they want it straightened i charge another 4 on top as this is your time you are using, or if they wanted tongs on their hair i charge the same. hope this helps

Congratulations!  Your time is money.  Don't be afraid to charge realistic prices.  I think people are really down on hairdressers (just take a look at wedding forums) and think if they are charging more than a pittance they are somehow rising above their station.  My hubby goes nuts when I say I charge too much.  He reckons I deserve it cos at one point in my career my wages hardly covered my travelling expenses!
Your time, skill, training and graft IS money!

i charge 15 for a shampoo, cut and blowdry and the price includes with or without straighteners or tongs.  It would take me around an hour to hour and half and to earn 4 per half hour after fuel isnt bad.  It is their electric we are using so you have to think of that but still make a profit from it.

Hi i dont charge extra just add a little on to my prices to cover this as alot of people have it straightened now anyway.
Really depends where you live and what salons in your area charge

i work at regis and we charge 7 extra for straightening. but we hardly ever charge it if its not straight enough in the first place. if u cant get your clients hair straight enough with the blow dry and it has to be straightened then its the stylists fault and not the clients so they shudnt have to pay it. plus straightening doesnt take much longer. so factor it into the original cost if needs be.
but for curling then i would charge an extra blow dry on top as it takes about the same time as a blowdry with tongs anyway
