Half kids' barbershop, half toy store, Snip Snaps is equally adept at styling haircuts and hosting birthday parties. Kids can pick a fun chair for their trim, choosing from racecars and motorcycles, and then watch TV or pick out a kids' movie from the salon's extensive library. Snip Snaps even has PlayStation 2 plugged in to facilitate hassle-free haircuts. And adults needn’t worry; they can recline on a more traditional salon chair for their own cut and style.
The talented tress trimmers at Salon Refuge fashion follicles into stylish shapes using fresh techniques and an in-depth knowledge of current trends. During the Brazilian keratin treatment, stylists wrestle down unruly curls by applying formaldehyde- and aldehyde-free Cadiveu products to smooth cuticles and resolve long-standing squabbles between hair and combs. Clients can also trade a hairdon’t for a new hairdo with the cut-and-color combo, which begins with a customized shampoo and conditioning treatment, followed by an expert cut and style (a $50 value) and a professional color retouching (a $50 value) to add a fourth dimension of dazzle to any look. Groupon customers who choose the first option will also receive 20% off any post-treatment products purchased on the same day.
A certain hominess shines through at JoBella Salon and Spa. The shop is named for the co-owner’s children, Joe and Bella, and the Branford location is nestled inside a two-story house surrounded by trees and green grass. Skilled stylists and aestheticians at both locations tap into an arsenal of elixirs from Arrojo and skincare products by Aveda. When they aren't beautifying clients from the neck up, they primp nails, knead sinews, and leave legs wrapped in seaweed like a sleeping sushi chef.
At The Creative Edge Hair Salon, experienced stylists transform overgrown or damaged hair with innovative techniques and fashion savvy. Haircuts, perms, and color treatments revive hairdos, while keratin treatments help restore the hair’s shiny finish and manageable shape. Manicures, pedicures, and facial waxing are also available, as well as stylish men’s haircuts.
The stylists at New Have Hair and Skin Studio each possess more than 25 years of experience, which they use to revamp dull strands and restore visages during an array of aesthetic services. Situated on the main floor of a two-story home, the salon and spa's stylists cut, color, and retexture strands. Elsewhere, a massage therapist reduces back tension with deep-tissue and Swedish massages. The salon also beautifies clients' façades with facials and Jane Iredale mineral makeup, which it sells in-house.
