If there was a big problem with the affordability of hair cuts and if hair cuts were essential to life then perhaps yes. But hair cuts have a relatively fixed, and relatively low, cost and individuals have a very high level of control over when they enter the market for hair cuts. They also have a large degree of freedom to shop around for better quality and lower cost hair cuts. This means that, for the most part, there's no big problem in affording hair cuts and regular market forces serve to keep prices at a manageable level for most consumers. The same isn't true of health care which tends to be very expensive, have wildly varying costs depending on procedures needed, and where the individual consumer has almost no control over when they enter the market, how much they would spend, and very limited ability to shop around for better prices. As such, normal market forces do not work very well at keeping down health care costs.
