Owner Lesli Grabill leads the talented team at Flhair in crafting ’dos that draw influence from contemporary styles. During haircuts for both men and women, experienced hands—including those of an American Crew–certified stylist—snip strands and build them into stylish new structures that match clients' mental blueprints. Colorists can imbue hair with a brand-new hue or add dimension with a smattering of highlights. Flhair also lightens facial burdens with waxing services in an effort to smooth out skin and effectively reduce drag before important headbanging competitions.
Through detailed consultations, the seasoned staff at Townsquare Hair Associates adapts its aesthetic approach to suit each client's complexion, hair type, or nails. Stylists trim and dye new 'dos, and technicians primp hands and feet with mani-pedis. Meanwhile, custom facial treatments—from microdermabrasion sessions to peels—reveal newly radiant features, aided by products from Clinical Care Skin Solutions.
By helping soothe tense, tightly knotted muscles throughout the body, Shear Art of Massage helps clients focus their thoughts on personal healing and growth. The therapists can use one of two specialized modalities to provide such relief. Long, flowing Swedish strokes target tension near the surface, gently kneading the muscles and promoting a sense of calm and peace. Alternatively, deep-tissue sessions can help by applying a bit more pressure to any knots that the therapist finds lurking beneath the surface or masquerading as a third gallbladder.
Xenon International Academy's accredited beauty-school curriculum trains fledgling spa and salon technicians in the ways of the scissors and the cucumber slice. These able aesthetician aspirants perform the Academy's variety of services under the watchful eye of a licensed and experienced instructor. With a customized facial treatment ($30), they'll replace your face's neon-green glow with a healthier radiance by cleansing, exfoliating, and balancing dizzy skin tissue. An acne-clearing treatment ($36–$40) targets and evicts any insurgent blackheads, whiteheads, and inflamed redheads that have been vandalizing your pores. Broken, tattered, or torn nails can be carefully repaired for $3, and more ambitious customers can luxuriate in a complete French manicure ($18–$19) before chasing it with a spa pedicure ($24–$25) in a throne chair salvaged from the spa in Tutankhamun’s tomb. A trained sculptor of scalp whiskers can tame your hairy head monster into a stylish new 'do ($7–$8), then color it ($28–$30) so that you blend in with the fall foliage and evade hungry ogres on quiet walks through the forest.
Since 2004, The Birdcage Salon's meticulous stylists have injected pizzazz into dreary 'dos with expertly crafted cuts, vibrant colors, and omega-oil-rich Aquage products. The 90- to 120-minute appointment with a Level 1 stylist begins with an investigation into current hair hopes. After reaching a verdict, the hair whisperer will apply complementary highlights (a $70 value) to flatter complexions and provide a good role model for graying ball caps. Follicles marinate in color while patrons marvel at feather-sketched walls inside the open salon. Scissor specialists express their gratitude to veteran split ends before severing ties and shaping locks into a pristine style (a $25 value). The salon is open seven days a week, and Groupon customers can upgrade to a Level 2 or Level 3 stylist by paying an additional fee or bringing a recommendation letter from George Washington’s powered wig. Call ahead for details.

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.
