Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton received a Fifth Avenue in New York City last Friday that cost more than the average American makes in a week.

Ms. Clinton received a John Barrett Salon haircut last Friday at Bergdorf Goodman that normally costs $600 — for just a standard cut and blown dry, The New York Post reported Tuesday.

The Washington Free Beacon reported Wednesday that the latest Census Bureau data puts median household income at $53,046 between 2009 and 2013, “meaning that an average family earns $4,420.50 monthly and $1,105.13 per week–nearly $100 less than the cost of the hairdo.”

A source told The Post that salon staffers “closed off one side of Bergdorf’s so Hillary could come in privately to get her hair done. An elevator bank was shut down so she could ride up alone, and then she was styled in a private area of the salon. Other customers didn’t get a glimpse. Hillary was later seen with a new feathered hairdo.”

The Clinton campaign did not respond to The Post’s requests for comment on its story, so it is not known if she paid the standard $600 price for her haircut or if the labor was done as a favor by the owner.

The newspaper reported that she regularly schedules appointments with owner John Barrett.
