Woman shares the amount she makes in a day as a barber and people are stunned
| Last updated
A barber has shared the amount of money she makes in a day, and it might surprise you.
In one clip, Deone initially wrote that she makes a whopping £819 in a day and charged as much as £65 for a trim - and people were floored, but later revealed she was joking.
"Where are you based, Mayfair?! Usually no one pays more than £18 max," questioned one person.
"I’m paying 17 quid for hair and beard. Ain’t no way I’m paying more than 25," said someone else.
"No way does she make that much on haircuts on a day, who is she kidding," insisted another.
Yeah, turns out she was in fact 'playing' with people and now Deone has shared a video of her real prices.
And while she doesn't make north of 800 quid a day, she still makes a pretty penny.
Deone actually charges around £18 - £22 per trim, with her most expensive one shown being £34.
People have since applauded Deone for knowing her worth.
"Still bossing it," one person wrote.
"Fades look sharp as well," added another.
Meanwhile, someone else said that she's 'not charging enough'.
"Know your worth why not charge that," added another.
In total, Deone worked out that she makes around £442 and, if she worked 20 days a month and earned that amount each time, that's still a whopping £8,840 a month before tax and other expenses.
Deone said in the comments section that she rents a chair so that would also need to be deducted from her pay.
According to the London School of Barbering, renting a chair rather than having an hourly rate or working on a 50/50 commission split can work out as the most financially rewarding.
It also notes that this is the highest risk, however, if you don't have a loyal client base.
On the other hand, it says it could be 'ideal' for you to work on a fixed or hourly rate if you're new to the barbering game.
Robbie’s Chop Shop in Adelaide, Australia, prides itself on being the ‘last male sanctuary’ and has even applied for an exemption from the country's Equal Opportunity Act.
Adelaide barrister and former chair of the Civil Liberties Council Claire O'Connor said that under the act, a business should be exempt for an important reason only - and being a 'boys only' club probably isn't one of them.
Nice try, lads.
