Get all your hairs cut for less

I'm lucky. I happen to have a friend who is a hair dresser. This is called the best case scenario. 
If you don't have a hair dresser friend or family member and don't want to pay typical hair styling prices, there is another option out there.

In my town there is a beauty school which offers discount hair cuts, hair dying, hair styling, manicures, pedicures, and more for way, way less than you'd pay normally. 

Sure, there is some risk involved in getting your precious mane cut by an student ultimately practicing their trade on your head. But, at our local beauty school, after the cut is done, a teacher always comes by to check on the finish product and makes adjustment as necessary. I have gotten my hair cut at our local beauty school several times in the past...the only damage done? $8 measly dollars and an acceptable haircut. If you want to save a few bucks and you're willing to take the risk, you will save a few dollars, just call your local beauty school for pricing.


  1. I just to have to share a funny store about visiting a beauty school. When I was getting married, I decided I wanted to get acrylic nails with a french manicure for the wedding. Someone told me how I could get it done for only $10 or $15 at this beauty school. So my maid of honor and I went and got our fake nails one week before the wedding. In that one week, two fell off of my fingers, and I believe my friend also lost one or two. So we went to a "real" place to get our fake nails replaced. (Can you picture how those close up wedding pics of the rings on our hands would have looked?!) Anyway... by the end of my honeymoon, one week later, all of my nails had fallen off, except for the two put on by the "real" place. Lesson learned? Just stay away from fake nails. ;-)

  2. Nice, Annette. Beauty schools probably use super cheap fake nails for their practicing, so it's probably true that they should be avoided at places like that...or anywhere!
