BEST CHEAP 'DO - 1998
Yes, some of the cosmetologists-in-training look like they just stepped out of a French film, but these waifs are supervised by some of the best in the business: This is, after all, the former training center for the notoriously persnickety Horst Salons, and it remains part of the Horst-founded Aveda empire. Nothing but pure flower and herbal essences here--even the perms are "nontoxic." Haircuts are $9, updos are $15, colors run upward of $18, foils start at $25, and perms at $25. You'll leave looking like a diva, smelling like a meadow, and with enough money left over to splurge at the nearby Banks surplus store.
