Paris: Cheap haircuts, only €5

Jean Louis David, merci!

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.

Hi there,

Like most things in Paris, almost certainly somebody in the salon will speak English.

Will you be able to chat about your trip? No guarantees.

Will you be able to express how you’d like to get your hair cut? Very likely!

Thanks,

Just FYI, the street where this is located is mispelled in this entry — it is Cambon and not Cambron. Here is the full (correct) contact information for the Training Center:

TRAINING CENTER de PARIS (Centre de Formation)
Du lundi au jeudi de 10h à 18h et de 10h à 17h le vendredi
M° : Concorde
5, rue Cambon
75001 PARIS
Tél : 08 25 16 02 16

Just a note on what I posted above, the phone number starting with 08 is apparently a toll number (.15 euros/minute).

Here is another place where you can supposedly get a hair cut for FREE:

Pour une coupe de cheveux trendy, rendez-vous à la Toni & Guy Académie (122 rue du faubourg Saint-Honoré, 75001 Paris, 01 40 20 15 93). Sur rendez-vous, du lundi au jeudi, les 18-30 ans pourront se faire coiffer et colorer gratuitement les cheveux par des professionnels en stage de perfectionnement.
