Kodiak, Alaska, has most expensive haircut in US

KODIAK, Alaska (AP) — If you’ve seen a lot of long-haired men on Alaska’s Kodiak Island, this might be the reason.

A new study finds the City of Kodiak has the priciest men’s haircut in the nation, on average at $26.67 a cut. The national average is $13.95 a cut.

The Kodiak Daily Mirror reports (http://is.gd/opcPpI) the figure is included in a state Labor Department report comparing cost of living data for more than 300 cities.

There is, however, a silver lining for those Kodiak men who are embarrassed by their long locks and want to hide in a dark place.

The report says Kodiak has the most inexpensive movie ticket in Alaska, at $6 on average. That’s well below the average ticket price of $10.68 in Anchorage.
