When money is no object, people can spend a ridiculous amount for ordinary things. Celebrities pay almost an average person’s wages on just one haircut. The best hairstylists in the world are in demand, so they can choose to set exorbitant rates for their services.
Not everybody would pay such a crazy amount for a haircut though. Some celebrity followers feel that paying such a high price is okay because they are getting their hair done by a celebrity stylist. Some even go as far as copying their favorite celebrity’s hairstyle.
Celebrities start their own trends because they are famous. Justin Bieber famously had those bangs when he first came onto the scene. Other celebrities keep their fans guessing by constantly changing and updating their styles.
For the ultra A-list stars, they don’t follow the trends. They make them. They partner up with their hairstylists and come out with a new trend other people will follow.
