A Dupont Circle barber shop famous for charging Supreme Court justices, bigwig politicians and local celebrities just $20 for a haircut has been forced to raise its prices.
The price of a haircut at Diego’s Hair Salon (1901 Q St. NW) is now $25, according to salon owner Diego D’Ambrosio.
D’Ambrosio told Borderstan today that the shop had to charge more for a haircut due to an increase in its rent and other rising expenses.
“It’s not just the rent,” he said. “It’s the shampoo, the towel, the electric, everything.”
D’Ambrosio added that for 23 years, the business charged just $20 for a haircut.
