One of my favorite bloggers Small Budget Big Style had a great blog on how she saved on hair style costs by going to the Aveda Institute nearest her in DC. I thought about doing the same thing but then I realized I didn't have to go to the Aveda Institute, I could go right down to the 4th floor at the school I work at. I work at a Vocational Technical School that has numerous trades for the students to enroll in, and lucky for me I teach the senior Cosmetology girls who will hopefully pass their state board test this year and become licensed cosmetologists before they graduate. A couple of weeks ago one of my favorite girls asked if she could straighten my hair and I said "sure" with a quickness. You see I am all natural, in fact I have not had a perm in 5 years and when straightened my hair is about 2-3 inches away from my bra strap. I am also tender headed, which is why I have only been going to one hair dresser since I have been in Philly ( she is the only one that can deal with it). However, my student did a great job, and got it silky straight. I need a trim, may go back to my regular hair dresser for that next week, but otherwise I think my cos girls might just be doing for my hair for the rest of the year.
$75 vs. $0.00 I know what I will be paying. I do have pictures so as soon as I find them I will post them.
Until next time, think prosperous thoughts
