Paul Mitchell, The School Best Of

IndyPick • Best Of 2010: Well-Dressed Students

Everyone's heard somebody's horror story about getting a terrible haircut at a salon school. But having gone to Paul Mitchell for well over a year now, with not one bad experience, that seems like a myth to me. Regardless, I'm willing to take the chance, because it's such a bargain: Cuts, which include shampoo and style, start at $10. Now, you've got to be prepared to spend at least two hours there for a simple cut, and even more for updos, color treatments and perms. But that gives you plenty of time to enjoy the ultra-stylish get-ups of the students, who must wear black and do their hair and makeup. No one sports a plain ponytail — instead, each puts forth an artful creation teased and sprayed to within an inch of its life. Punk, grunge, glam or streaked bright green, all of it looks fabulous. As with a portly chef, you gotta trust someone who's obviously mastered hair, even if you can't pull off your own fauxhawk. — Edie Adelstein
