When a nationally acclaimed troupe of hair-crobats comes to your cottage to whisk you away on their traveling wig wagon, be waiting for them with your follicular A-game. Keep your hair agile with today's Groupon: for $49, you get $100 worth of hair-care services at Ground Zero Center City on Arch Street. The high-end salon won Philadelphia Weekly's 2009 award for Best Blow-Out for Under $30.
Ground Zero Center City sculpts frizzy, unwieldy, and technically illegal hairstyles into follicular masterpieces with a plethora of hair-care services. For starters, the salon's talented, accommodating staff of stylists will carefully edit the head-tentacles atop women ($50+) and men ($25+) into styles that reflect their personality. For more advanced tress treatments, a permanent wave ($75+) elegantly curls hair so that it more effectively ensnares delicious birds and the fingers of attractive dates. The Prizms treatment ($25+), meanwhile, can boost the intensity of your hair's natural color—adding shine, toning highlights, and blending away touches of gray—until each filament glows like radioactive honey. A highlight treatment ($80+) colorizes monochrome manes into a Technicolor tour de force. And men just looking for a simple, no-frills de-scraggling can order an extensive, soothing beard trim ($7), opening up face space where they can write helpful reminder notes such as "Buy Post-Its."
With checkerboard floors and slick track lighting, Ground Zero's crisp, vibrant interior is as stylish as your new hairdo. Lean back and let the salon's soothing snip-snip sounds tingle the back of your neck as its cutting crew interprets the hairdo that Hairmemnon, the god of sideburns, bestowed on you in a dream. Emerge from Ground Zero with a sleek, classy summer look courtesy of today's Groupon.
