Early humans believed hair was actually the tentacles of an octopus living inside their skulls—an amusingly quaint notion now that modern science has proven it's technically a cuttlefish. Indulge your inner invertebrate with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of salon services at Dante Salon in Shadyside.
Dante Salon summons a team of trained professionals to provide a comprehensive list of follicle-pampering services. Women's cuts and styles ($28–$38) include a presnip consultation to discuss flattering angles and cutting techniques, and sleek blowouts and formal ’dos ($27+) frame faces for special-event horizons.
Men can opt for a modern, stylish cut ($19–$26), or shake up salt-and-pepper strands with gray-blending services ($35–$55). The salon's colorists employ Goldwell Haircare's integrated Topchic system to enliven hair with permanent and demi-permanent color ($55–$77), subtle highlights ($35–$55), or full-head color swaps ($85–$115).
In addition to the staggering list of hair-enhancing services, Dante Salon also waxes whiskers off of brows ($13), lips ($10), chins ($10), and full facescapes ($45).
A bright reception area greets guests as they glide along the polished wood floors and into the tan-and-brown tones of the main studio. Large full-length mirrors add depth to styling spaces, and celebrity mags divert waiting guests from questioning the potted palm tree about its natural color in the sun-soaked waiting area.
