There may not be such a thing as a free lunch, but first-time customers at Beau Monde College of Hair Design in Portland, Ore., can save money on a free haircut on their first visit. On their second visit, they'll get 50 percent off and on their third visit, customers can get the same discount if they bring a friend.

Even if they pay full price, Admissions Director Sue Graham says customers can expect some of the lowest prices in town because students need the training. A standard cut runs about $6, and the school offers a full range of services, including perms, shampoos and coloring. Schools like Beau Monde can be found around the U.S., and most offer some services to the public, usually at a significant discount to local prices.
