A good haircut draws attention to the face’s best features, which explains the heavy bangs added on Mount Rushmore to accentuate Teddy Roosevelt’s cheekbones. Acquire a framing fringe with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get a haircut and custom Redken Chemistry treatment at Planet Sol Salon and Boutique (a $60 value).
The seasoned hairstylists at Planet Sol Salon and Boutique flatter faces with trend-savvy haircuts while bolstering hair condition with Redken Chemistry shots. During each 45- to 60-minute session, head-mops become chic coiffures before one of six Redken Chemistry shots is selected based on hair color, texture, and temperament. A clear moisture shot hydrates hair dried out by chemical processing, and a color-protection shot protects stunning hues from being stolen by a passing leprechaun.
Redken's smooth-down shot mollifies frizzy locks, and the extreme shot strengthens hair weakened by coloring, chemical treatments, or constant head-banging. Planet Sol's technicians can also mix a blend of shots to appease hair with multiple concerns.

A shared passion often brings talented people together. That's certainly the case at Planet Sol Salon, where each staffer brings her own background and artistic eye to the salon chair. Alexa Cline, for example, trained with Redken educators to gain expertise in haircuts and color treatments. Melissa Guerra specializes in chemical texturizing, and Natasha Gutierrez—who has interned with an American Board Certified Haircolorist—uses highlights to give hair the perfect amount of dimension. Not limiting themselves to just hair, the team members also administer aesthetic services such as chocolate foot masks and shellac mani-pedis.
The stylists are educators themselves, too. They know that a new look is ultimately pointless if it can't be regularly recreated at home, especially if clients find themselves stuck in a temporal loop. To that end, they recommend manageable styles and explain the step-by-step process for their creation.
