    Hair modeling. Walk down a high st on a sat morning or along oxford st specifically and try and bump into one of the dudes asking for hair models. My girlfriend has been asked 6 or seven times in the last couple of years, and she wasn't looking.

    Go to Peter Mark/whatever your nearest salon is, and ask them when they run their training class, and if you can get an appointment.

    Tomorrow I'm getting: an all-over dye, highlights, and a cut for €73

    Get some scissors and run them through your hair in the hope that the probability of getting a nice haircut that way is high

    Or, more seriously: get your mother, or someone who knows, to cut it for you

    New Oxford Street. Toni and Guy academy. Either free or a fiver. Takes about two hours though and you have to book an appointment. Totally worth it though. Take along a picture so they know what you want. Most of the trainees have 6 or 7 years experience and are really good. They will style it for you as well if you like e.g. up-do, curled etc.

    Go on yell.com for the phone number.

    PS. you can get free colouring done as well if you go for a skin test 24 hours before.

    1. go to your nearest community college and ask to volenteer for the hairdressing courses, you get a free haircut, but it will be by someone halfway through their course, (obviously there'll be a teacher there to supervise it though)

    2. Cut it yourself, it really isn't that hard. Me and my sister do it all the time when just our fringe needs a trim but we don't need the whole hair done.

    3. Do you really need it cut? Why not experiment with clips/bands/grasps and see if there is something new you can do with it?

    I have cut my own hair a few times in the past, sometimes its really good othertimes it is just okay, it has never been dreadful though, and it always grows in ok, just get a friend/family member to help you do the back part, the front is easy especially if you want a layer fringy look cause the messier it is, you can say you meant it ;p

    Scissors and a comb is all you need. Get a mate to cut it down to lengh.

    Sorted.

    If you went to the same salon all the time and was a regular or was really close with one of the stylists you could have got credit.

    Or go to a training academy and get it cut by trainees for free or a very small fee.

    Is there any colleges around- usually need people to practice on (although it is summer so maybe not) Or you can ring round local salons and ask if they need a hair model. Sometimes though you have to have your hair a certain way.- you can ask that over the phone though!

    Good luck! x

    Tony and Guy Acadamy New Oxford Street. Free with a voucher from the free sheets, £5 otherwise for a cut and £15 for a colour. I've had some really good cuts there.

    Avoid the Vidal Sassoon Acadamy. I looked like I'd had chemo by the time they had finished with me (which might have been slightly 'funny' if I wasn't working on a ward with 4 cancer patients!) - deconstructed my arse. Their 'real' salon at St Pauls put it right for free though, they were so distraught at the state of my hair!

    A trainee will cut your hair for free, my friend got hers done for free and it looks really good.
