| DH queried me about it once, and I came back with this logic:|
1) I have at least 10 times more hair than him (long and blonde, his is SHORT and..well, thinning. Which is very sexy IMO!)
2) I tend to leave it and only go half as often as him to get a haircut.
3) Therefore I am entitled to spend 20 times as much as him - proportionately! Realistically though I only spend 10-12 times as much, so really I'm saving money...
I love being married to an engineer, so many times I've used logic back at him and it's bitten him on the bum.....don't get me started on how I won the 'toilet seat stays down' argument LOL
I like that....very good!
I dont' have a problem. H2B used to come to the Hairdresser with me and so knows how long I am there and all the things they do. I have always done to my hair what he has wanted so he always thinks it is money well spent. And he knows that I would not go if we couldn't afford it, as it is I only go about once every 10 weeks. Which can be painful toward the end as I cannot do anything with my hair...but I cope.

|I'm getting my hair cut tonight and it will cost $80. BUT when H2B asks how much it is I tell him $45 only because men just don't seem to understand about haircuts and that a decent one isn't cheap. Am I the only one??|
I think he'd be overjoyed if I ever spent $80 - mine are normally between $180-$200
theres no way I could lie - we don't have the sort of budget that he wouldn't notice
but I don't get my hair done near as often as I should

I know where you're coming from though - like goodgirl, I'm a bit like that with clothes. I never lie, but I'm good at being vague. For example, H2B will ask what I bought today - I might answer a top and a skirt, but neglect to mention I also bought a belt, knowing he won't notice when I'm wearing it. Obviously he knows how much I spend, but with us it's more about if it's money well spent... Like, spending $100 on a pair of black heels for work is worth it - $100 on a plain singlet to wear on Sundays to the beach isn't, IYKWIM.
Sorry I'm rambling - this is s'posed to be about wedding hair hey?

He shaves his head (well I do it for him ) so it cost us $10 ages ago for haircuts forever for him ... Maybe I should use the logic that with the money we've saved on his haircuts, I should be allowed to splurge a little?!
Re the clothes - hubby always notices new clothes.. well he says "Is that new?" and I'm too honest and always say "Yes, I bought them [when] for [price]" .. I pretty much only ever buy bargains anyway

If he went to a barber's we'll probably go broke!!

But H2B pays for my hair upkeep a lot of the time anyway... so sweet
But I have found a hairdresser that will put over 50 foils in my long hair and cut it for $110.... so I'm not complaining!

all he said "Baby next time you want your hair done maybe you can save up a bit so it doesnt come out on one hit"

Mine costs about $140 now every 6 weeks, but it used to cost over $200 every 4-5 weeks.
h2b knows how much I spend on it, and is very happy now that I've dyed my hair dark brown instead of blonde foils! Only problem now is I get reverse regrowth! The blonde starts growing, and it looks like I have gray hair when the regrowth is only short!
But I put a bit aside for it each week anyway.
