My comment: I have received cheap, cheap hair cuts and hair treatments at different beauty schools. I've been pleased with the price and the results. But caution: Play the look-see game first. Not all students are created equally. Look at finished products before sitting down in anyone's chair.
Also one of my neighbors received a free hair cut when she was used as a model at a high-end (national name) salon. The results were stunning, but she was not expecting such a radical change. My advice: Make sure you are on the same page as the stylist.

My comment: In actual Sephora real-brick stores, I have had fabulous & free makeovers, with lots of free samples. Appt. required. It's a real bargain and the results were great. Sephora did my makeover on the photos I have used on this website. The makeover freebie is available to everyone. I've been quoted prices of about $40 at another well-known makeup chain for a comparable makeover.
