Beauty School For Services?

 I just discovered something that you all probably already know about, but I thought I would share it here just in case. 

Did you know that you can go to the local beauty school for spa services, and they are super cheap?!  My friend just got her hair cut, colored, and styled for only $35!!  It turned out so cute!  I asked her if she was nervous about having a student cut her hair, and she said that the instructor was right there.  She said it was one of the best cuts she's ever had, and definitely the best color job.  She said that this particular school also offers facials, waxing, and all nail services.

I'm definitely going to do that next time.  I don't think I could get my hair cut and color it myself for that cheap.  How about you?  Have you ever gone to the local beauty school for your hair or other spa services?  Is it something you would consider?

There's one in my area but I've never gone. They do mani's and pedi's, some waxing at this one too.

My friend worked at one, and recommended the best student. I followed her to her salon, LOL!

I got a pedi done there too, but they didn't really have a nail program so it was horrible. I'd pay $10 more for the massage at the place down the road.

And don't forget to tip the students :)

My mom and I went to one once. My haircut turned out fine, but my mom didn't like hers. She made the student cut some more hair(my moms hair was uneven and she wanted the student to even it out). The place isn't even there anymore so we just go to Great Clips instead.

  I usually go when school is in session. During the summer it is cost cutters for haircuts and I do my own acrylics french manicure style.

I've always used beauty schools for hair, perms, and such. It was something my grandma taught me.

I met my last hair dresser at the beauty school. I stayed with her until she got married and moved out of town, and have since found a new girl, the same way.
