Tea Nguyen January 20, 2010Maintaining beauty can be so expensive …but it doesn’t always have to be.How much do you pay for a decent haircut these days? The guys seem to have it easy for this one. My husband-to-be gets his haircut for $15 (tip included) and I am just so envious. A typical haircut at a normal salon might cost me at the very least $35 without a tip. Although he goes more often, maybe 2 times a month, than I could ever imagine going (once a year at the most), I have found a reason to maintain my mane a little more often.The Aveda Institute is a beauty school that also provides services ranging from facials to haircuts for much cheaper than a stand-alone salon. Although a student, rather than a licensed professional, is practicing their skills on live people, I paid $16 for a mini-scalp massage (so soothing!), shampoo & conditioner, trim, blow dry and style and all I had to do was sit in a chair and relax to the groovy music. I feel so spoiled.I loved having the student take care of me. She was meticulous and made sure I left happy with my new do. I loved how she cared about her work and more importantly my hair. I wish I knew about this place before. 3 responses to “Maintaining beauty can be so expensive” As a salon owner who is about to venture into blogging and is now currently searching for topics for my video cast.I find your topic very interesting and since my clientele is between the ages of 35 and 70I am glad I ran into this site because now I can diversify and add post to my list of topics for my video posts.Thanks again, love the post.
