Sounds like it’s all goin’ down in Brisvegas.
Former Brisbane Extra host Jillian Whiting recently wrote an opinion piece complaining about paying $425 at a hair salon.
“Quite simply, I had a hair emergency as I’d been asked to read Channel 7’s weekend news. You have to have nice hair on television,” she wrote.
“Let’s be honest about this. For a TV presenter, appearance is always the first thing you, the viewer, notices and comments on. Just ask Jessica Rowe. Bad hair is bad news in this industry.”
But now Oscar Cullinan, the owner of Indooroopilly salon Oscar Oscar has hit back.
“The idea that she received a $425 haircut is ridiculous,” he told news.com.au
“Jillian came into the salon and we gave her a haircut, a full head of foils and a gloss (semi-permanent) colour and she actually had a treatment which we didn’t charge her for so she owes me $30,” he joked.
“And the staff working on her are not second-year apprentices. They are people who are paid a minimum of $30 per hour – qualified professionals – and I had two staff working on her for about three hours.
“You do the maths. My actual profit on a service like that is only about 15 per cent.
“I think poor Jillian has been in la-la land … getting her hair done by the hair people at the TV network and hasn’t stepped into a salon in years.”
What a shame Nine cancelled plans for Million Dollar Salon.
