American woman travels to Turkey for hair treatment
How far are you willing to go to get a good deal on a haircut? This woman decided to travel the world after her local hairdresser offered a high price to cut and bleach her hair.
According to a mirror.frBryn Elise was quoted a whopping $4,000 (Rs 3.12 lakh) in her hometown in the United States. Bryn said her usual salon asked her to pay such a high price for the hair treatment, so she flew to Turkey to have her hair done.
The same procedure in Turkey cost him $450 (35,000 rupees). Ms Elise traveled more than 6,000 miles to get to her hair appointment. She posted a video on TikTok that shows her taking flights, getting a haircut and spending two weeks on vacation in Turkey. She claims it costs less than the quote she got from her local salon.
She wrote on her viral clip: “When you get a $4,000 quote to get your dream hair in the US, you fly to Turkey and do it instead. It costs less, y including my two week holiday here.”
The TikToker, which frequently posts travel content, also said her hairdressers in the United States were not trying to “rip her off”, but the much-quoted price was too high for her.
She explained: “First of all, I love my salon in the States – they do an amazing job. But $4,000 for anything is enough to make my jaw drop, so I looked for alternatives .”
“I paid $450 plus tip in Turkey for 8 hours of bleaching, toning and high quality 24 inch hair extensions for my super thick hair! No, my salon in the US was not trying to rip me off i have been going to them for years and they slowly increased their prices to keep up with the demand but when they increased the extension prices for my color and length and amount of 2 $000 to $3000 I figured with the color I needed, treatments and tip would cost over $4000 and that’s why I chose Turkey,” she said .
She added that she chose Turkey after coming across her “favorite hair inspiration photo” and finding the stylist who created the look who lived in the country.
She said: “I took a look at my favorite ‘hair inspiration photo’ that I had saved on Instagram, I saw that the stylist who had done it lives in Turkey and I I thought, if I have to spend a small fortune on my hair, I might as well have it done by my dream stylist! Two months later, I went to Turkey, I had my dream hair done by my dream stylist for $450 and fell in love with this beautiful country along the way!”
