Need a haircut? Struggling to find a stylist you trust, on a budget? Then head to The Academy on Elizabeth Street, right next to the Queen Victoria Market.
The Academy is located near Melbourne CBD
As its full name, the Australian Academy of Hairdressing, suggests, the Academy trains hairdressers and beauty therapists, and more that 10,000 students have graduated since it opened in 1932.
You can make an appointment or just drop in, and from only $8 one of the friendly trainees will cut, colour, or style your hair. Before you leave, a professional tutor will check your hair to make sure you're 100% happy. They also offer a number of beauty treatments for equally bargain prices.
It can get busy, so you may have to wait a while if you don't have an appointment, but I was really happy with my haircut and the friendly service. It's definitely the place to go if you're after a new style on a budget.
