Angel Hair & Beauty Salon’s stylists act as guardians against fashion don’ts, answering calls for help with their beautification services. Salon treatments including highlights, haircuts, and hot-oil massages relax clients and repair hair, and a collection of facials treats dryness, acne, and environmental damage with such ingredients as gold particles, pearl powders, and milk and honey. Threading services uproot unwanted strands with knotted thread later used to make “really interesting” friendship bracelets.
The style stalwarts at Supercuts have trimmed, toned, and honed the domes of hair-bearing hominids for decades. The experienced stylists can accommodate cuts ranging from quick, careful trims to more in-depth style overhauls. Each scissors-handed specialist draws from a vat of experience, leveraging quality hair products from Paul Mitchell and others to give each client a custom, flattering new look. Walk-ins and waltz-ins are always welcome, seven days a week.
When he cofounded his first sandwich shop in 1965, 17-year-old Fred DeLuca planned to use his profits to pay his way through medical school. But the combination of quality ingredients and friendly service at the shop—then called Pete's Subway—proved so popular that nine years later, he and his partner found themselves in charge of 16 locations across Connecticut, and Fred left behind his doctoring plans for a career in business.
Today, Subway boasts more than 34,000 locations around the world—almost as many shops as there are sightings of Elvis buying cold cuts. At each location, staffers pile sliced ham, marinara-slathered meatballs, and other fillings into halved loaves of bread before customizing handhelds with tomatoes, shredded lettuce, and other healthy toppings plucked from chilled containers behind the counter. Salads free crisp veggies from bread's overprotective embrace, and crunchy baked chips or apple slices accompany entrees to tables. Subway’s website also facilitates health-conscious eating by listing each item's nutritional information and fastest mile time online.
To keep her clients looking young, Rubal Beauty Salon owner and licensed cosmetologist Mandip Kaur draws on both ancient techniques and all-natural modern products. The skilled beautician reaches for henna-infused dyes and shampoos to add shine and moisture back into tresses, and she uses Innosys styling products to sculpt and shape new 'dos. During hair-removal sessions, Mandip gently removes strands using a water-soluble wax blended from lemon, sugar, and plant extracts, or she can individually thread hairs to leave skin as smooth as a Terminator's forehead. In addition to hair-focused treatments, Mandip exfoliates the body with fruit-extract-infused scrubs and concludes mani-pedis with coats of OPI polish.
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).
Though Casual Cuts flaunts its hairdos in its name, the staff styles more than just hair. They offer services that cover the entire body, from facial threading that leaves brows sculpted to mani-pedis that prepare feet for sandal season, which in parts of Alaska, for example, spans from July 4th to later in the day on July 4th. For the real estate between head and feet, they can wax away unwanted hair or airbrush skin to create an even tan.
