Kanye west cares a lot about his image and is widely known for his unique fashion sense and style. Little do people know how much his shaven hair costs to maintain.

West spends US$500 (Ksh 50,000) a time on a daily haircut, according to Rihanna’s father.The hip-hop star sports a completely shaved style, but apparently it’s harder to maintain than it looks.

Rihanna’s father Ronald Fenty has seen firsthand how much care goes into Kanye’s look, as he joined the two stars when they played shows together in 2010.

“It’s crazy – Kanye gets a haircut every day,” Ronald laughed to Britain’s Heat magazine. “He pays his barber US$500 a time. I don’t understand how that much hair gets taken off. Kanye just loves the fresh look.”

The rapper doesn’t let just anyone come at him with the clippers though – in fact, there is only one guy he trusts enough to tend to his tresses.

 Jasper has been styling the star’s hair for over 20 years, with the pair meeting when Kanye still lived in Chicago, Illinois.
