There's nothing like a summer trim to get the ball rolling with your beauty routine and with the sidewalks already sizzling by mid-morning, we're going to suggest moving that hair appointment up about a month. Miami has blocks upon blocks of worthy salons to get your main shaped, whether you want to indulge in a glamorous, world-class, wine-serving experience, or you're just looking for a local neighborhood dig.

We've scouted out a few great finds for you, from the incredibly affordable Paul Mitchell School to the highly trained staff at Van Michael Salon, which will soon be taking over the historic old stomping grounds of Van Dyke Cafe. The list is highly subjective, so feel free to add your favorite stylists and salons in the comments below, and if you do pay a visit to one of our picks, let us know how it went!

At $15, Paul Mitchell will get you the best cut for your buck. Before they hit the floor the salon's "future professionals" are trained for nine weeks and if you manage to get a Phase 2 stylist, they've already got 700 hours under their belts. While we wouldn't recommend going here for a crazy, off-the-wall cut (they are students, after all) a light trim or bang snip for that price is a steal. [Photo: Facebook]
