Nearby campus, you can check out Paul Mitchell The School. The hairdressers are students there, so the cuts are very affordable. Over on Olive Blvd., you can find Paul’s Salon which has great options as well.

One big perk about WashU’s student health plan is that our health insurance is automatically covered in our tuition, so you don’t have to worry about extra costs or a formal sign-up process. The Student Health Service clinic is located right on campus next to the Farrell Learning and Teaching Center (FLTC). I’ve gone a few times for things like birth control and the annual flu shot, and it’s been incredibly easy. They accept walk-ins for those things, so I’ve been able to just walk over after class, tell them what I’m there for, and be in and out in 10 minutes! For appointments, scheduling is still very simple. You just have to call their office and they’re able to schedule you in to see Dr. Winters fairly quickly. Any lab work you may need is also covered in the plan, and so are referrals made outside of Student Health should you need to see a specialist after your appointment. Overall, my experiences with student health have been very accessible and positive.
