Beauty on a Budget Tip: Student Stylists
Low on cash and desperate for a quick trim, rinse, or blow-out? Try taking advantage of discounted salon service pricing through cosmetology schools! Such prestigious brands as Aveda, Paul Mitchell, and Vidal Sassoon have cosmetology academies across the country that breed some of the most skilled and professional stylists in the industry. And while you may worry that they are not yet fully licensed, all students work under the direct supervision of a seasoned master cosmetologist. You often even have the choice of selecting those who are within 6 months of graduation—if level of expertise is a concern.
To give you an idea of the types of savings this could mean for you, consider this: Haircuts from as low as $10, Flat Iron or Rollerset styles from as low as $15, Highlights and Relaxers starting at $20, and Full Color with highlights starting at $25. Cha-chinggg!—your wallet will love you!
