After attending Empire Beauty School, stylist Racquel “Kal” Stringer spent seven years acquiring hands-on industry experience, following and perfecting each new hair trend to hit the scene. These days her bag of tricks is robust—she still enrolls in continuing education classes, and she draws on her expertise from within her very own salon, which opened in the summer of 2012. The intimate space, wrapped in turquoise hues and dappled with bronze accents, sees hairdos transform with a range of services, including all-over colors, deep-conditioning treatments, and precision cuts.
During appointed “seniors” days, Kal entertains elders with good conversation while she adds volume to their tresses with roller sets and perms. But no matter what age her clients are, she always takes the time to teach them how to recreate their new 'do at home or within 30 second of finishing a bungee jump.

Louis Anthony's skilled stylists can also mollycoddle your countenance with one of nine customizable facial treatments, including the deep pore-cleansing facial ($70), rosacea facial ($90–$125), or a facial for acne-prone skin ($90).

The MVP haircut is reserved for guys who want the brawn of a chiseled cut with the extreme adrenaline rush of a pleasant pampering. Following careful instructions or expert intuition, stylists can clean up the edges without sacrificing any degree of edginess.

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 ($29–$38) and lean back and dream of break-dancing 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 ($55–$70), highlights ($75–$90), or a perm ($55–$70). Prices vary by location.
