The style stalwarts at Supercuts have trimmed, toned, and honed the domes of hair-bearing hominids for decades. Walk-ins and waltz-ins are always welcome seven days a week at any of Supercuts' convenient locations. The experienced stylists can accommodate cuts ranging from quick, careful mop maintenance to a more buzzworthy beehive for hypnotizing local grizzlies. Each scissor-handed specialist will draw from a vat of experience, leveraging quality hair products from Paul Mitchell and others to infuse your filaments with a winsome glow and creative coiffure. Feel free to stockpile up to three Groupons to ensure a series of sure-fire cuts before snow-spooked wallets retreat into prolonged hibernation.
The sassy stylists at Se Faire Belle primp patrons with a variety of shearing, sculpting, shading, and waxing services. Leaving no lock unloved, Se Faire Belle stylists use quality Aveda and L'Oréal Professionnel products as they administer custom cuts for men ($20+), women ($38+), and children ($15). The salon’s highlights and lowlights ($76–$91) add subtle flecks of follicular pigment, and the partial or full color ($55–$95) transform dull strands into brilliant sidewalk statements. For more aesthetic gains, guests can always banish infringing fringes of eyebrow, lip, or chin fuzz with a proper waxing ($15 each) or cut all ties to Santa with a full-face wax ($45).
Your hair?s sure to feel silkier once your stylist conditions it?learn why with Groupon?s close-up look at conditioner.
Although human hair may look smooth, each strand's outer layer?the cuticle?is actually quite rough. Under dry conditions, the tiny scales that cover its surface become raised and brittle, causing hairs to tangle and lose their shine. Conditioner aims to correct this problem by bonding a particular class of molecules, called cationic surfactants, to the cuticle. This is possible because keratin, the protein that makes up most of the hair shaft, bristles with negative ions, which attract the positively charged surfactants, coating each thread in a thin film that weighs it down and reduces frizz. (The negative charge of keratin is also what causes static whenever positive ions are stripped from the hair?the static that makes it possible to stick a balloon to the wall or to power a miner's headlamp.)
The other ingredients in conditioner don't always need ions to do their jobs well. Humectants suck in water from the surrounding air, thereby moisturizing the hair, and oils simply penetrate the cuticle. Glossers coat the hair with light-reflecting polymers, increasing shine, whereas other ingredients raise the acidity level of the conditioner, which helps protect the hair's protein structure.
The old saying goes something like this?if you give a man a fish, he?ll eat for a day, but if you teach a man to fish, he?ll eat for a lifetime. It?s that line of thinking that drives the spa technicians at Jubils Salon & Day Spa. As they perform aesthetic services that range from haircuts to facials and massage, they strive to enlighten their clients with tips on how to better care for their skin, hair, and nails. Armed with these techniques, clients can then improve their at-home skincare regimens, which previously consisted of sleeping in tubs of oatmeal and never leaving the house.
