Beauty School Drop Ins

When it comes to salon services, it's understood that you should always seek out an established, reputable place.

But, there are exceptions to every rule. Conveniently located in most American cities is a beauty school...a beauty school with lots of beauty students who need practice. What I'm trying to get at here is that you are not too good to be someone's guinea pig.

Obviously, some services are more appropriate to have done at a beauty school than others. None of us are so desperate for a $7 haircut that we're willing to put our beautiful locks in the hands of a newbie and come out looking like this. ------------------------>

But, you can rest assured that there are a wide variety of no-fault services you can have done for next-to nothing.

There's no real way to mess up a massage, is there? Especially one that costs less than a McDonald's value meal. Mani/Pedis are pretty safe, too. Afterall, these students usually want real experience and positive feedback so they try much harder than your average nail-tech...as long as you don't show up to the party with ingrown toenails, that's when things tend to get ugly...

It's also a major perk that students are not allowed to accept tips...this is the perfect opportunity to feel like a Kardashian. Fake 'em out with a crisp $100 and then act disappointed when they tell you they can't take it..."but I really wanted you to have it....THANKS ANYWAY! BYEEEEEE!!!"

And as always, don't forget to ask for additional discounts! The ladies at my regular hotspot (The American Institute of Booty) always hook me up with a first timer special no matter how many times I've been there. So indulge your inner goddess and spend a day at the "spa" with your fave beauty school technicians!
