When you’re pressed for cash, head to the Cinta Aveda Institute. The city’s leading beauty school also has an entire program devoted to learning the art of barbering, where you can snag a $10 haircut including a stress-relieving head, neck and shoulder massage. Or a $5 express facial designed to cleanse and nourish the skin and reduce irritation caused by shaving. The school is state of the art with a clean—to the point of being almost clinical—vibe. It’s always bustling with people, and yet it’s easy to relax into your treatment. Note that sometimes services take longer than normal; your barber is most likely a student still learning how to perform the task.
