Ask Chris: My Barber Charges Too Much. Where Can I Get a Free Haircut?

Our in-house historian has the answer

Barber colleges offer such a bargain that I’d trust my goatee to a rookie with a razor. Most charge about $5 for a haircut, but you can get a complimentary coiffure from students at the Beyond 21st Century Beauty Academy in Santa Fe Springs on Tuesdays. Stylists-in-training are required to fulfill 1,500 hours of practice, which can include gratis grooming, to earn their degrees.
