The Philippines Has One of the Cheapest Haircuts in the World

According to study.

The cost of living in the Philippines has gotten pretty high over the years. But, at least we have one thing we can rely on to be cheap: haircuts. In fact, according to a new study by NetCredit, the Philippines is one of the cheapest countries to get a haircut.

With an average cost of $6.06 (approximately P300), the Philippines is the third cheapest country to get a haircut. We were beat out by Argentina for the top spot, however, with an average price of $5.24. While Denmark had the most expensive haircuts in the world, with an average price of $75.20.

See the list of countries with the cheapest and most expensive haircuts below.

Interestingly, a man's haircut usually costs less than a woman's haircut. There's a number of reasons why, though.

"[I]t doesn’t take as long to cut their hair, but also they're in the salon more regularly," explains celebrity hairdresser Adam Reed. "And there’s less time taken and fewer products used on the finish—for a man it’s four to five minutes, whereas women’s blow-dries can take a long time."
