Kanye West is a perfectionist even when it comes to his hair.
If there’s one thing we know about Kanye West, he always looks fresh — but it doesn’t come cheap. On top of the designer clothing ‘Ye is always rocking, he’s also putting a whole lot of money into his hair. That’s right, it may not look like much, but according to Rihana’s dad (who travelled with ‘Ye and his daughter on a 2010 your), the rapper gets his hair cut every day, and he shells out $500 each time.
“It’s crazy – he pays his barber $500 a time,” Ri’s father said in an interview with Heat. “I don’t understand how that much hair gets taken off. Kanye just loves the fresh look.”
When it comes to his elaborate patterns (those stars at the 2010 VMAs, or those arrows he rocked for a bit) we definitely get the pricetag, but for the most part, Ye’s hair doesn’t seem like a difficult style, especially if it’s getting cut every single day.
Keep in mind, this report is from 5 years ago, so things may have changed since then, but we do know Ibn Jasper has been ‘Ye’s barber for a minute now, and we’d assume his rate would only go up over time.
As Complex points out, 5 stacks a day would give Ibn a $182,500 salary, which certainly isn’t bad for a barber with only one client.
