- $189 for a haircut from celebrity stylist Jehr Schiavo ($380 value)
Jehr Schiavo Haute Coiffure
Jehr Schiavo does things his way. The celebrity hairstylist has carved his own path in the beauty industry, inventing new looks and butting heads when necessary. The result? Press in the New York Times, and a page in Allure that, in his own unapologetic words, "features my absurd one thousand dollar haircut."
At the beginning of his career, Jehr could not have predicted his future success—he claims that he barely graduated styling school. From there, though, he went on to style musicians such as the Talking Heads and the B-52s during his apprenticeship. Later still, he styled the inaugural Lollapalooza, and went on to rack up client names from Blythe Danner to Lou Reed.
As eye-popping as these credentials are, Jehr casts himself as a simple artist without extravagant tricks or blowdryers that lay golden eggs. He views his job not as a means to perfect beauty, but as a way to illustrate his clients' character through a very specific medium: their hair.
