Abstract: The Haagerup norm $\Vert \cdot \Vert _{h}$ on the tensor product $A\otimes B$ of two $C^*$-algebras $A$ and $B$ is shown to be Banach space equivalent to either the Banach space projective norm $\Vert \cdot \Vert _{\gamma }$ or the operator space projective norm $\Vert \cdot \Vert _{\wedge }$ if and only if either $A$ or $B$ is finite dimensional or $A$ and $B$ are infinite dimensional and subhomogeneous. The Banach space projective norm and the operator space projective norm are equivalent on $A\otimes B$ if and only if $A$ or $B$ is subhomogeneous.
