Longtime reader Meital shares before and after pictures of a great deal she landed last week – an $8 shampoo, haircut, blow dry and style! She got her hair cut at Empire Beauty School in Rhode Island. Beauty schools are a great way to save money. Meital reports:
The student that did my hair was Nila (her supervisor Louisa and her professor Mike watched/ helped to make sure she was doing everything right) .
Nila gave me a 10 minute head massage, shampooed, and DOUBLE conditioned my hair. She then cut my hair, blow dried it, and then styled it with the straightener a bit. Total: $8
I got there around 11:45am, and didn’t leave until about 2pm. I didn’t wait long to get the haircut, but it took a little while because they’re students and the teacher comes around every couple of minutes to check to see if everything’s fine.
Before they students come upstairs to the salon to cut customers’ hair, they have to do 18 weeks of training in the classroom on mannequins. I trusted them. I hope you go and try it out for yourself!
I’m due for a haircut so I may well check this school out. If you didn’t hear, I recently moved to Rhode Island.
