A woman in the US has revealed she flew 6,000 miles to get her hair done after her local salon quoted her an eye-watering £3,200.
Bryn Elise was quoted a whopping $4,000 (£3,273) by her usual hometown salon to get her hair bleached, toned and to have 24" extensions put in.
Stunned by the price tag, Elise took matters into her hands and jetted to Turkey instead for her hair appointment in a bid to save some cash, where her hair appointment cost her a total of $450 (£368).
Sharing her story on TikTok, Elise told her followers that her flights, haircut, and two-week holiday in Turkey cost less than what she was quoted from her local salon.
She wrote across the clip, which has been seen almost 744,000 times: "When you get quoted $4000 to get your dream hair in the US so you fly to Turkey and get it done there instead.
"It cost less including my two-week vacation here."
Elise, who produces travel content online, insisted in the comments that her usual hairdressers weren't "trying to rip her off", but the quote inspired her to look for alternatives.
Explaining her decision in the comments, she penned: "First off, I love my salon in the US - they do an amazing job. But $4,000 for anything is enough to make my jaw drop so I went looking for alternatives.
"I paid $450 plus tip in Turkey for 8 hours of blonding, toning, and high-quality 24” hair extensions for my super thick hair!
"No, my salon in the US wasn’t trying to rip me off, I’ve been going to them for years and they’ve been slowly increasing their prices to keep up with demand.
"But when they raised extension prices for my colour, length and amount from $2000 to $3000, I figured with the colour I needed, treatments and tip it would come out to be over $4000 and that’s why I chose Turkey."
The content creator said she was inspired to travel to Turkey after discovering the hairdresser who created her favourite hair look worked and lived in the country.
She added: "I took a look at my favourite 'hair inspiration picture' I had saved on Instagram, saw that the stylist who did it lives in Turkey and thought, if I’m going to spend a small fortune on my hair I might as well get it done by my dream stylist!
"Two months later, I made it to Turkey, got my dream hair done by my dream stylist for $450 and fell in love with this beautiful country along the way!"
