New Contest! Guess How Much Prince's Haircuts Cost, and Win an Amazing Pop-Up Prize!

In observance of Zac Efron's emergency appendectomy this week, I went online and bought a 2008 Zac Efron wall calendar. No, I am not kidding.

I've never had to have my appendix removed, but I know people who have and I know how goddamn painful it is. In fact, many years ago my mother almost died because of a bum appendix.

So there is no irony when I express that I wish Zefron well (after all, a third of this blog's readership can be indirectly attributed to him), and having his image on my wall for the rest of the year is the least I can do (and, additionally, it will ensure a guaranteed "finish" when the Internet just ain't cutting it—note to tweens: you'll understand that last sentence when you are older...and then you will cringe in horror).

While I was ordering that calendar, I decided to order an extra one to give away as a prize in this week's new contest. The 2008 Pop-Up Ancient Egypt Calendar is freaking amazing! I don't care if you already have a wall calendar, and I don't care if you don't give a shit about ancient Egypt—this mofo has 3-D pop-up pictures! If I got this when I was a kid, I would've crapped my pants.

So here's your chance to crap your pants. All you have to do is guess how much money I spend on a haircut (excluding tip). You know how much I love my hair. The question is: how much do I love my hair? Guess the base price, and win win win!

Anyone in the world can enter. Leave your guess in the comments section (one guess per person please). If you're not a Blogger member, leave your first name or last name or your initials in the comments section; when I announce the winner, you'll know if you won and all you have to do is e-mail me. The person who comes closest wins—and, yeah, you can use decimal points. In the event of a tie, I'll randomly draw one of the tying entries. Deadline for comments/entries is Wednesday, January 23, 2008, 11:59PM.

  1. Quin Said,

    a zach pop up calendar would sell by the millions.

    send me 10% for my idea.


  2. Amy Said,

    OOH I want to guess. You do have such lovely hair, but are you also cheap? You could be a supercuts man, but somehow I doubt it. I'm going to guess $35.00.


  3. Sterling Said,

    I agree, when will they come out with a Zac pop-up calendar? I would be all over that!
    Also, sadly, I get exactly what you mean, Prince. I hate it when that happens.


  4. I'm gona randomly pull this out of my ass... $21?


  5. The New Me Said,

    I'll guess $30.00 and you,Prince, as you get older, will one day also understand that the notion of crapping ones pants is not necessarily a draw for us seniors. You too will cringe in horror.


  6. golfwidow Said,

    I'm going with $120. I can't imagine you'd trust those locks with any non-prestigious salon, and I'm factoring in consultation, blow-dry, and all that stuff. (Yeah, I know, it's probably less if you're a boy, but I overestimated your weight, thinking that I should take your boyness into consideration, and look where that got me.)


  7. Ellen Said,



  8. VW Said,

    I'm going w/$45. For guy hair, I think that's an expensive(ish?) cut.



  9. Peter Varvel Said,


    Aw, crap, my first and second guesses were already taken--damn those IT bastards at work who block my favorite blog sites!

    (or should I be damning Prince and his pornographic innuendos?)


  10. You worship your hair but you could possibly go to one of those places who restrain pretension and give a really great cut. I am gonna say $45 for that place. UNLESS you go to a shi-shi high-end haircut place then I'll guess $200 plus.

    My final answer though falls somewhere around $55 cut only, after tip and no additional hair products.


  11. Quin Said,

    oh, i forgot the hair.

    i pay $20 at astor place, with sweeney todd.

    and i look marvelous.
