I just got my haircut at an Adult Education Class. They learn the trade and are supervised and watched close as they work on client's hair.
I received a cut and color and paid less than $20.00. Tip is separate. I have never had a bad color or cut. You can see if your local High School knows of classes such as this.

I used to get a hair cut at the beauty school. I'm not sure why I stopped going there because I was always happy with the results. It may have been that it took too much time. You wait your turn and because they are somewhat inexperienced, they take quite a while to do the work because they want to do a good job.
I used to have my hair cut at a cosmetology school that was located nearby. Yes, it did take about twice as long as going to a regular beauty salon because the stylist was just learning, but I was always completely satisfied with the results and the price was a real bargain. Sadly, the school moved to a new location which wasn't convenient for me. If you're not in a hurry, this can be a real money-saver.
Isn't this a wonderful bargain. We have a local technical school that offers inexpensive haircuts and other services, and just this week a new beauty school opened here offering $5 haircuts and big discounts on other services.
The best, and cheapest cut I ever had was a few years ago at a hairdressers' school! It only cost me about $15 and the girl was REALLY good (she said she was done with the education the next week!). Really try it!
