Should I be a "hair model" for a friend?

I have to start this off by saying I have curly hair and I'm usually very picky about who cuts my hair. That being said, a friend of mine (someone I've known for 10+ years) just graduated from hair school and is doing free cuts to gain experience. I'm really tempted because A) I need a haircut B) Haircuts in NYC are expensive! C) I want to support my friend! I wouldn't be getting a crazy style, plus they are supervised with an experienced stylist at the salon.

But yet I still feel kind of hesitant!! Should I take the plunge and go for it? Hair grows back...right?
