A haircut can run you and arm and a leg these days, which is why student or assistant salon cuts are such a godsend. Salon professionals have to spend hours and hours perfecting different kinds of cuts, so they need a lot of willing clients. In short, you trade your time (and head of hair) for the service. Typically, an instructor will watch over the student performing your cut or color; most appointments ring in under $40. Click through for the details on how to get in at 14 local salons and beauty schools, including some really big fish (Sally Hershberger!).
