There’s yet another perk to being a woman in Paris, in addition to Ladies Nights and being leered at on the metro, of course: cheap haircuts.
Haircuts are €5 for all female Cheapos at the Training Center for Jean Louis David.
Who says chivalry is dead?
This is not actually as scary as it sounds. The students cutting hair for €5 apiece are in their final stage of training, and many are already professional beauticians undergoing additional training through the Jean Louis David group. You have to make a reservation a day or two in advance by going to the center at 5 rue Cambron. Then, well, all you do is return for your really cheap haircut.
The closest metro is Concorde (lines 1, 8 and 12). It’s open Monday to Friday 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., and Friday 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
There are also other Training Centers in Lille, Nantes, Lyon, and Strasbourg.
