Forges is a genius cartoonist from Spain. In one of his vignettes a woman is surprised with the news of a global economic crisis, and the first thing she thinks about is her hair. When faced with a situation, our instinct usually makes us bring our hands to our heads. The next step is to worry about the way our hair looks, which unless we have a good stylist at hand, almost always looks disastrous. Notice that I said “stylist,” and not “hairdresser.” Hairdressing is old fashioned. Now we go to the “stylist.”

It is located opposite the exclusive Covent Garden hotel in London.Here you will find the list of services and prices: sound reasonable; however, Mr. Stuart Phillips is listed in the 2007 Guinness Book of World Records for the most expensive haircut: $16,420 (£ 8000). Rumor has it he even surpassed that mark, charging nearly $25,000.

Location: Covent Garden Salon, London, United Kingdom.

Date: October 29, 2007. The person that made the appointment was Beverley Lateo from Pisa, Italy.

The bill included, in addition to the stylistic talents of the artist, a haircut, lunch with champagne, a head and scalp massage, a selection of L’Oreal products and treatments, and of course, a return trip by limousine to the airport.

As a result, frequenting the right salons and stylists is like belonging to an exclusive club; and is part of a unique lifestyle.
