The price of a haircut is a wallet buster for some men in a tiny remote island off the coast of Alaska.
A new national survey discovered men in Kodiak pay about $26.67 per cut. That’s twice the national average which is $13.95. The Council for Community and Economic Research put together the survey after reviewing prices in 300 U.S. cities.
Kodiak’s cost of living registers “well above the 300-city average,” Alaska’s Department of Labor reports. The high cost of living may be due to is in part due to the remoteness of Kodiak. It is the Alaska’s largest island and the second-largest island in the U.S. after Hawaii’s “Big Island”.
