My hair looks ridiculous.

I just moved to the UK and desperately need a haircut. Do you know a good salon and/or stylist in either Birmingham or Oxford that can do well with short, very thick, straight hair? (I am a girl)

I'm looking for somewhere moderately priced and stylish (but not too trendy or too snooty). I'm accustomed to a place that did well with modern haircuts and always made good recommendations for my hair and face. I am usually happy to try out new styles, but have no idea what would actually look good on me specifically. I never know how to answer when they ask me what I want done. I loved my old place because I could sit down and ask the stylist what she would do with my hair if I gave her free reign (and I usually did).
Mostly, I need to find a stylist I can trust to suggest and execute a good cut that will complement my face and grow out well. I know these are basic salon requirements, but I'm new around here and have no idea where to begin. Any suggestions? I will be traveling between Birmingham and Oxford all week, so suggestions in either location are welcome. Thanks.
*Bonus question: what should I expect to pay for a woman's cut in a salon?
