The salon’s pin lights loom overhead like a star constellation, bringing the rich autumnal reds of the hardwood floors. Amid these warm accents, skilled Jose Angel stylists craft sleek face-flattering cuts and bedeck tresses with color products by Matrix and Nioxin. Clients can also request a specialty updo for an upcoming wedding, prom, or skydive.
Armed with current techniques for properly maintaining noggin lawns, Regis Salon’s network of stores keeps clients’ hair in order as dictated by the latest trends. Within this caravan of hair bazaars, customers’ wild manes are tamed by skillful stylists; use your Groupon toward a shampoo, cut, and blow-dry, and lean back and dream of breakdancing Stay Puft Marshmallow Men as a stylist carefully cleanses hair with shampoo and conditioner and then clips it into stylish head hedges that beautifully complement scalp-garden pathways. Afterward, the hair that’s left behind will receive a loving blow-dry for a style that gleams and glitters like a ruby-encrusted bowling ball. During the treatment, stylists offer helpful tips and tricks to help clients care for hair at home. If a shampoo and cut isn't your cup of sports drink, put your Groupon toward the cost of another service, such as hair coloring (starting at $52), highlights (starting at $75), or a perm (starting at $75).

A sense of leisure and escape pervades the salon and spa, where even haircuts and coloring treatments include aroma-infused heated towels and scalp, hand, and arm massages to keep clients from repeatedly waving at their own reflection.
