Adjusting to a new city can be intimidating especially when you have your girl at home who always cuts your hair, or that salon down the street that knows your nails better than you do. However, the perks of going to a city school is that you have plenty of options to choose from. Here is a list of some gems in the city of Madison that you must try to satisfy your beauty needs.
The Aveda Institute: If you are a freshman living in the dorms you walk through East Campus mall every day to get practically anywhere, and Aveda is located right there. Search no further for a full functioning salon at a quarter of the price (blow out as low as $15).
Laqueres: Right behind State Street lies the newest (and closest nail salon) on campus. While it might sound strange, their salon does not use water for their services. With an environmentally conscious value, this salon not only fosters an amazing culture but delivers with the unique ability to see the color on before you decide.
European Wax Center: This franchise is trusted around the country and we are lucky to have one just down state street. Also, if it is your first time you can get a free wax!
