Poor In Three Cities

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Spending massive amounts of mullah on your hair seems like a good idea in theory, but in practice, the expense can result in living off a jar of peanut butter for two weeks (again). Lucky for your wallet and your nutritional needs, our three sister sites have rounded up the best salons currently offering student haircuts priced anywhere from zero to forty dollars. So give your card a breather, test your sense of adventure, and put your hair in the care of soon-to-be professionals. [New York, Chicago, Los Angeles]
