  For example, what do barbers charge for a haircut, $15?  Out of that $15, they may earn only $12, with $3 going to the barbershop owner (80% commission).  If it takes only twenty minutes for a haircut and they work eight hours a day, five days a week with twenty days of vacation per year, they can expect to make a maximum salary of $69,120.  This is with non-stop customers!  A more realistic estimate assumes that they have both good days and bad days during the year, which is represented by the Low ($22,418) and Medium ($45,619) salaries.

  How do salaries compare for a hairstylist who specializes in inexpensive, quick hairstyles (like clipper cuts) and one that specializes in expensive, time consuming hairstyles (like perms and colors)?  Try 30 minute haircuts for $20 and 120 minute colors for $80.

Annual Salary= (Service Price)*(Percent Commission)*60/(Service Time in Minutes)*(Hours Per Day)*
[52*(Working Days Per Week)-(Vacation Days Per Year)]-12*(Monthly Operating Costs)
