Dear Eastsider: A jobless reader named Elizabeth is seeking an Eastside beauty salon with recession-friendly prices for hair cuts and color:

“I can get a cut for about 40 dollars. The color is the killer. It can range from $180-$220 depending on the colorist and whether it’s partial color or not. I just want to update my hair and not blow my unemployment check.”

The Eastsider has experience with unemployment but not with hair color (though the gray in the sideburns might need some attention soon). Without forcing Elizabeth into the Lady Clairol section at Rite-Aid or resorting to an electric coloring brush, can anyone recommend where she can get a stylish cut and color without busting her budget?
