Kanye West doesn’t like a cheap haircut, says Rihanna’s dad

Kanye West spends $500 a day on haircuts, or so says Rihanna’s father Ronald Fenty. Which does seem like quite a lot.

The figure actually dates back to 2008, when Fenty joined his daughter as she supported West on his ‘Glow In The Dark’ tour. “It’s crazy – he pays his barber $500 a time”, Rihanna Sr told Heat. “I don’t understand how that much hair gets taken off. Kanye just loves the fresh look”.

I don’t know, maybe Kanye just found a hairdresser he really liked after years and years of searching, and, capitalising on the situation, said hairdresser just kept putting their prices up. He’s apparently been going to the same guy for 20 years, so a little increase here and there might have gone unnoticed. If that’s the case, a good way of getting out of exactly that situation is to start going bald. That’s a free tip right there.

It does seem like quite a lot of money to spend on what is not the most intricate of haircuts though. However, even taking that into account, the $2000 a day it is claimed that Rihanna pays her hair stylist still seems comparatively expensive. Just let Kanye have his hair cut in peace, Ronald.
