Over priced hair cut?

How much is too much to pay for a hair cut? I wear my hair long and take care of it so it rarely damages and as a result I get my hair cut about twice a year or once ever five to six months. My last hair cut was $50 but it was absolutely the best cut I've ever had and I'm considering going to the same person again, but is that too much for a hair cut? I have very thick curly hair (Sicilian) and it's always been hard to find a stylist who wouldn't ruin it. But as I'm about to start college that just seems so steep 😬 thoughts?
