Beauty and the Beast

Beauty may be in the eyes of the beholder, but sometimes it is in the eyes staring back at you in the mirror. Being the mother of two girls, haircuts and coloring, nails being done, and eyebrows needing waxing is nothing new to me. At home, we have our tried and true places to go, but when your girl or boy is needing some touching up while away at school, it is nice to know where to go. I know, I know, beauty isn’t everything, but the reality is that most want/need hair trims or some services to help them get ready for Greek formals, banquets, or even job interviews.

There are places mentioned a lot on some of the parent Facebook pages, but students will find their favorites. Here are some of the recommended places:

Hair Salons

If your daughter is getting a haircut, you may want to know that they have the option to sell their hair online. If they are going to get their hair cut anyway, they can sell the locks that are lopped off. High-quality hair can be valued at over $500 and with so many people getting their first post-pandemic haircuts, we’ve got a price calculator.
