Price of Haircuts Remains at $1.75

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

It still costs only $1.75 to get a haircut in the Square, and according to one barbershop owner, the price may not go up to $2.00 for two years or more.

At its state convention last week, the Master Barbers' Association of Massachusetts voted overwhelmingly to sanction $2 as the maximum charge that can be made for a haircut.

But the Barbers' association is authorized only to set a top ceiling on haircut prices; the actual decision to raise costs is left to each local chapter of the Association.

Local spokesmen indicated yesterday that the Cambridge Chapter of the Barbers' Association has not even called a vote on the price hike. They noted that when a ceiling of $1.75 was set several years ago, the Cambridge chapter did not hike prices for two years.

The four major barbershops in the Square--Dunster, Harvard, Holyokc, and University--are still charging $1.75.
