Worth to whom? To me, not much, but I'm in the habit of cutting my own
hair. I have payed as much as $50 for one (when the dollar was strong,
no less), and I'm under the impression that women will pay much more
(although for more than a simple cut, mind you). A news anchorperson
probably places more value in a haircut, as would anyone whose lifestyle
is predicated on receiving a lot of media attention... How much is it
worth to a barber / stylist? Likely as much as they could convince
someone to pay.
Now a /shave and a haircut/ is a different matter entirely as more than
ones' follicles are at stake. Most places don't offer shaves anymore
but, one upon a time, finding someone you trusted to put a straight
razor against your throat was priceless.
