Piggy-backing on the post that I wrote yesterday about finding the perfect hairdresser, I wanted to take a moment to post a way to get VERY expensive hair services for a fraction of the price.
If you live in or near a major metropolitan area, you will probably find some of the upper crust salons. In order to stay on the cutting-edge of hair fashion they are ALWAYS training their stylists. Give them a call & make an appointment to be a Hair Model for training night.
NEW YORKERS ~
Training nights held either Tuesdays or Wednesdays after 6:30. Cut or color, $45 or less. Call 212-879-0409 to make an appointment

Call ahead for an appointment with a stylist—but be prepared to wait a month to land a cut. After an initial model consultation, the services are usually about $15.

Don’t worry if you don’t live in or near the Big Apple – there are training nights going on in just about EVERY major city –
Look in the phone book & ask ~ I’ll highlight MORE cities in upcoming posts
Living in the sticks SUCKS! In college, I used to do hair modeling all the time. It really stretched my budget.
I'm so sorry, but if there are any beauty schools nearby you can always go and have your hair, nails & facial done for VERY little money all under the watchful eye of an instructor.
