Carsten Institute/Bargain Beauty
The Carsten Institute is an Aveda style school and salon using Aveda products and French hair techniques. The school located on a second floor in the heart of Union Square offers an array of services all supervised carefully by instructors. These students are not licensed, but are are training to become licensed hair stylists. I had a haircut in the school Friday by Danielle. She expertly cut my hair exactly to my wishes. The teacher came over three times, once during consultation, again to check on the cut and lastly to see the final cut. This was one of the best hair cutting services I had in a long time. The blow dry was lovely too and it all cost $17. Chemical services start at $35 for single process and $35 and up for partial foil highlights.
