You Won’t Believe How Much Kanye West Spends on His Haircuts in a Year

Hint: It’s higher than the median household income.

Kanye West is a rich and successful musician. Rich and successful people tend to be able to do whatever they want, like adopt 500 shelter dogs and fill a bathtub full of Dom Perignon and Skittles. For the record, this isn’t something West has done, but something I’d do if I had more disposable income. But one of the things that West does like to drop his money on is a daily haircut.

Ronald Fenty, who is a noted Kanye West haircut expert (and the father of The Queen herself, Rihanna), told Heat magazine that when West was touring with her daughter in 2010, he’d pay $500 a day for a haircut. If he doesn’t skip a haircut all year, that adds up to $182,550 — over three times higher than the median household income in the US, which is $53,046.

“I don’t understand how that much hair gets taken off. Kanye just loves the fresh look,” Ronald said.

I get it Kanye. I get it.
