There was a time when all beauty shops in USSR were national with universal haircuts and standart service. Some of those salons survived hectic 90-s and still remain as an oasis of Soviet times. Most of the hairdressers there have a municipal barbers school degree and a set of type haircuts they offer. Those salons often practice in a basement for 20+ years without any renovation. Workers are normally very fast and hard working, love their job, prices are at least two times lower than in commercial parlors.
Nevertheless most Russian ladies experienced a haircut in such a place. Old-style salons still offer chemical hair wave techniques, decolouration and permanent brows colouring. I myself made my high-school graduation set there and sometimes come to clip my hair.
