Because they're always under the scrutiny of a teacher, I've always left with a great and professional look. The downside: it's likely to take a little bit more time to get it done; you have to be flexible with time -- mostly they are available to work on you early in the week and in the mornings. You are likely to find free or steeply discounted services for manis and pedis from beauty school students and even massages from a massage school. Part of the pay--in return for getting free or very low-cost services--is being available and flexible with your time. Just another tip for living broke, but happily.
Uh no, that picture isn't me. Just a shiny apropos photo I spotted on Flickr, thank you.
