In response to my post about ways to save money, a reader wrote about going to a beauty school. That the price can't be beat and the students really want to do a good job and work really hard. She was right! I went to a local beauty school to get a body wave. I could not handle my straight, lank hair any more. I have had a wave in my hair since I was 10 but had not gotten one for the past 18 months in order to economize. (There are just so many better ways to spend $150+ these days.) But at the beauty school it was only $30!! And the student, Harmony, was so thrilled with how it turned out, that I left with a huge smile on my face because of HER excitement. And she did a good job too! It was a win, win, win.
