Empire Beauty Schools
Located at the corner of the hub in Astoria on Broadway and Steiway, this uber friendly school, dishes out the usual, wash and blow for a bangin' bargain price of $8.32. This spot in a chain of schools is one of the nicest and easist to navigate. Not especially crowded with clients, Olga was my stylist. Of course like all the schools it is BYOS(Bring your own shampoo). Olga washed my hair and dried it with a real towel, unusual in the beauty school culture. She was an experienced stylist who had worked at a salon in Chelsea so my hair was expertly styled and I left a happy girl and headed next store to El Mundo Department Store(more on El Mundo later).
