I think this is more the case of if you get a haircut from a place that doesn’t use the word “stylist” in their title. Usually when people get an expensive haircut (girls especially) it looks the best right when they’re coming out because the hair is maybe curled just the right way and it could be very difficult to get it the same way again since most people aren’t going to spend the time preening themselves as much as hairstylists are paid to do.

I happen to go to places to get a haircut for $8 to $10, and those haircuts are the ones that usually look the best after they’ve had time to grow in naturally.
