Free makeovers at top salons

Experimenting with your look doesn’t have to be a costly affair. Money Saver India brings you some of the salons you can register with for a free makeover.

Haircuts, straightening, colouring and other salon treatments can set you back by thousands of rupees. However, you don’t have to pay full price or even a rupee if you’re willing to wait for a call from a hair-styling academy.

If you don’t mind a bit of an audience (of students), a lengthy time at the salon and the fact that a fresher (under a professional hairstylist’s guidance, of course) is working on your locks, register yourself with the academies. They’ll then give you a call when they need a model for their trainees or for a demonstration to carry out a technical job on. These technical jobs include haircuts, waxing, perming, highlights, touch ups, re-bonding and other make-up related services.

But be sure you choose an academy that is well reputed to avoid having a bad experience. Here are a few big names in the business.
