Don’t stroll into Y&L Style Bar expecting a haircut or color treatment. Though comprised of expert stylists, the salon's team sticks to washes followed by blowouts and elegant up-dos. This means, that once every strand has been swept into place, customers will have enough time to enjoy manicures and pedicures, administered by nail techs or to sit as one of the bar's aestheticians beautifies their skin with mineral-based cosmetics by Jane Iredale.
But the fun here isn't reserved for adults only: birthday party packages invite girls as young as four to enjoy age-appropriate makeup, manicures, and other pint-size pampering, while Y&L's entire crew shares their skills with teen girls at annual summer camps.
Color Me Mine puts paintbrushes and pottery in the mitts of customers old and young. Budding Toyozo Arakawas will follow six easy steps to craft beautifully painted ceramics, first choosing a ceramic piece (most cost under $35) from Color Me Mine's selection of hundreds of seasonally changing items. After charting out the desired design from individual imagination or Color Me Mine's idea gallery, painters will select an underglaze from Color Me Mine's cast of more than 50 colors, then apply paint with the focus of a peregrine falcon occupied by a Rockwellian spirit. Color Me Mine handles all kiln-firing work, allowing clients to take home their final products within three to five days. This Groupon also includes the studio fee (or fees if you share this Groupon), which will get you a full day's worth of supplies and studio use.

Razzberry Lips is awash in color. Countless mirrors reflect bright-green and pink walls, tufty princess dresses, and the generous helpings of glitter that grace tiny eyelids and updos. Squeals of delight reverberate though the vibrant salon, where makeover specialists embellish birthday girls and their guests with painted nails, rock-star accessories, and, of course, more glitter. With the finishing girly touch of a feather boa or antique Viking helmet, girls can embrace their inner diva in the presence of staffers dressed as Disney princesses. Razzberry Lips also brings the celebration to home with mobile party services and can transport guests inside a limousine for added glamour.
