Salon C is a full-service salon that updates clients’ looks while bestowing them with personalized attention and complimentary beverages. The experienced and well-rounded staff—composed of Paul Mitchell educators and graduates of the Aveda Institute—keeps their skills current through continual education. Ever on the hunt for the most flattering looks, they begin each service with a thorough consultation that evaluates clients’ eye color, skin tone, and DNA.

On the spa side of the treatment menu, aestheticians use Dermologica skincare products to foster younger-looking facades, while waxing techs create hair-free surfaces. Makeup artists forge temporary or permanent enhancements, and nail techs add another dimension to fingers and toes with 3-D nail art.

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.

Gialuchi Salon & Day Spa’s beauty professionals restore careworn bodies to their showroom best with pampering and beautifying treatments. Aided by products from Pureology, Eminence Organic Skin Care, and OPI, they cut and color hair, wax off unwanted strands, and groom nails with coconut milk, hot stones, or milk and honey. Eyelash extensions add drama to flirtatious winks, and permanent makeup lines the lips, fills in eyebrows, or traces favorite road-trip routes into laugh lines.

Leslie, one of the expert stylists at Kapolei Hairstyling, is always happy to help someone brainstorm new ideas for a hairstyle or hair color. She starts each appointment with a consultation, during which her client might decide on foil highlights, a perm, or an updo for a special occasion, such as a wedding or a Monday. The beauty expert—who works with men, women, and kids—can also apply makeup and wax away unwanted facial fuzz.

Despite their workplace's name, the staff at Freedom Laser Hair Removal have more than one beauty trick up their sleeves. Of course, they use laser light to damage hair follicles so that legs, arms, upper lips, and backs stay smoother than a newborn bowling ball. But they also use lasers to tighten facial skin, diminish the size of pores, and reduce the appearance of spider veins.

For Salon Blanc co-owner Alan Vuong, hair is more than something to tuck behind an ear or sweep over a shoulder—it's an artistic medium that inspires creativity and pride. The salon's website even asserts that "hair is an expression of the moment we live in." Nothing could hold truer for Vuong and his team, who are continually educating themselves on the latest cutting and coloring techniques and products. They displayed these to full effect when they journeyed to California for the 2011 International Salon and Spa Expo—one of the largest professional beauty events on the West Coast—a trip chronicled on Living Local.

Vuong's trendsetting artistic vision earned him the title of Honolulu magazine's Editors' Pick for Best Hairstylist in 2009, and according to that publication, "he even has clients flying in from Japan and Guam to get the Vuong vibe." He and his crew rely on the Kérastase and Shu Uemura lines for haircare, and also offer services such as bridal packages, makeup, and waxing.

It should come as no surprise that Vuong is as concerned with the salon aesthetic as he is with his clients' satisfaction. His blank-canvas hair philosophy is much like the look of the Ala Moana Beach–facing salon itself; in fact, he compared the space to an artist's studio in a feature in American Salon magazine. The minimalist, white-on-white interior is accentuated by black leather chairs and feathery chandeliers that are lighter and more elegant than a performance of Swan Lake on the international space station.
