Kanye West's Haircut Reportedly Costs More Than Rent In This Major U.S. City

It's assumed that most celebrity manes come with a pretty high price tag, but one star drops a truly absurd amount of cash on keeping his trim in tip-top shape. Rapper Kanye West's haircut costs him $500 a day to maintain, according to none other than Rihanna's father, reports The Cut.

It's an odd source for such a specific grooming tidbit, but Papa RiRi, aka Ronald Fenty, told British website Heat World that he figured it out during the pair's tour several years back. At $500 a day, that's a ridiculous $182,500 a year. The Cut figures that rounds out to $1,520 per square inch — far more expensive than the Tribeca condo they point out that's listed at $18.52 per square inch.

Not to say that guys shouldn't invest in their grooming rituals, but c'mon, Kanye — this is over-the-top, even for you. I would like to offer my hair cutting services for a fraction of the cost (mostly because I have no cosmetology accreditation whatsoever), if you're interested. There is only, like, a 30 percent chance I will cut you, and a 40 percent chance I'll mess it up, based on my estimates. Decent odds, yeah? Really, what do you have to lose.


No offense, but I just don't think 'Ye has hair that's worth more than a house. However, I'd shell out $182,500 a year for one of these eight celebs' lovely locks.

If you recall, Connie Britton recently shared the secret to her incredible locks — feminism. (But really, Connie, how do you do it?)

I've always believed that Khloe had the best hair of the entire Kardashian-Jenner krew. (Sorry, Kim.)

Her rich, chocolate-hued locks are the stuff of hair dreams, even if it's not entirely real.

The only thing better than Shailene's long hair? Shailene's short hair.

Finally, the daughter of Kanye's hair leak himself. I especially loved her early fire-red phase.
