I was referred to Bradz New Talent Salon by a friend, and I was pleased with both of my visits there. It is located in a smallish house/salon near the larger the one and the prices are much lower ($20 is my recollection). The stylist I had both times was friendly and professional. The only reason I stopped going was I've decided I'm not a huge fan of Aveda products, which they use exclusively.
Also, I discovered you can make an appointment via the regular Bradz website, just request a "new talent" appointment when you make the request.
