A haircut is like a breakup—it doesn't seem like you need one until someone starts brandishing scissors. Get cut by a professional with today's Groupon: for $59, you get a salon package at Redhouse Salon in Shelby Township (up to a $171.97 value).
Fixing flagrant follicles for more than 14 years, the savvy stylists at Redhouse Salon (formerly Salon Moulin Rouge) primp their patrons with sharp cuts and services that sidestep fashion fads and faux pas. The salon package starts with a soothing shampoo treatment, followed by a signature color and cut (up to $109 value) fine-tuned to the customer's look, style and specific Hippocratic humor. A Sebastian conditioning treatment (a $17 value) moisturizes hair and supplies supplementary strength. Then, choose from a manicure, eyebrow cleanup or makeup refresher to detail digits or dermises.
For careworn keratin, a manicure (a $22 value) brings rejuvenating relief to anxious appendages. An eyebrow cleanup (a $20 value) neatens forehead commas, and a makeup refresher (a $25 value) updates staid foundation and outdated crayon lipliner. The pampering continues at home with a selection of award-winning Sebastian brand products, including Color Ignite shampoo (a $5.06 value), conditioner (a $6.96 value), and travel size re-shaper hairspray (a $8.95 value). Those threatened by malicious marble and baleful bamboo will feel right at home amid the amber wood paneling that underscores Redhouse's warm and vibrant atmosphere, featuring hosts of styling stations and plentiful pecks of mirrors.
Three Insider Pagers give Redhouse Salon an average of three stars:

A smiling crowd of stylists gathers around a chair, watching as a special guest deftly weaves a woman's hair into a type of braid they've never seen. He lets them pick up where he leaves off, showing them how to part and plait with encouraging guidance. This is not an impromptu sleepover, but a school lesson—Redhouse Salon prioritizes up-to-date education with several events and classes for its staff. In fact, continuing-education milestones are factored in with creativity to determine an employee's rank on the team. By staying abreast of current trends and innovative looks, they broaden their repertoire beyond simple cuts and color applications. Their services cover highlights, stress-reducing scalp massages, and retexturing treatments from the popular perms and Brazilian blowouts to more obscure japanese straightening techniques.
The salon's aestheticians also administer pore-pampering facials. Having trained at the Repêchage institute in New Jersey, they nourish skin with marine ingredients such as seaweed and cleansing slaps from a fish's tail. Elsewhere, nail technicians conclude mani-pedis with swipes of OPI polish and CND Shellac, and massage therapists channel the scents of aromatherapy and the focused pressure of deep-tissue work to ease aches. Clients who hope to carry pieces of their visits home with them can browse shelves of retail products—including formulas from Bumble and bumble, Aveda, and M.D. Skin Care—all of which have been tested and approved by the staff.
