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).
Zany Cuts shears and trims the natural hats of pintsize clients in a colorful lime-green children's salon. Parents can sit on comfortable couches while their young ones have their head strands shaped into stylish cuts or patriotic tributes to lady liberty's crown. Booths are equipped with 40-inch flat-screen TVs, which kids can enjoy from the vantage point of a neon-green hand, blue Thomas the Tank Engine, or pink Barbie Mustang convertible styling chair. Xbox 360 and Nintendo Wii occupy kids while the expert stylists keep them from being engulfed by their own head gardens. After each cut, children will receive a special prize such as a rubber ball, pencil top eraser, or cheat sheet for the upcoming metaphysics exam.
Great Styles' sleek salon features bright red walls and gleaming hardwood floors. The chic setting is a fitting introduction to the contemporary services the stylists provide. They rely on products from top brands such as American Crew, Paul Mitchell, and Redken.
Hair Connect Salon's certified stylists reshape the tresses of male and female guests in cushy black chairs. After free consultations, expert shampoos and deep-conditioning treatments whip locks into lustrous shape. Coiffures adopt new forms as specialists craft precise haircuts with laser-guided shears before drying and sculpting the freshly cut fringe. Patrons can gild dull tresses with partial or full highlights or blanket head grass with a rich coat of all-over color. Soothing blow-dries purge any excess moisture and warm napes, and the staff's omnipresent passion and friendliness can imbue clients with warm feeling as satisfying as sinking into a marshmallow-strewn bathtub of hot cocoa.
