Curl specialist and master colorist Jasmine beautifies hair and repairs color-deficient manes as she performs a range of salon services at JAZYHAIR. Jasmine meets with clients one-on-one, taking time to work out style goals and grade a short personal essay written by each hairdo. In the relaxing salon, Jasmine's deft hands perform signature services such as Japanese permanent hair straightening, scalp massages, color services, and precision cuts as customers surf the web on waves of free WiFi and sip complimentary beverages such as chai lattes.
The skilled stylists at Aida's Skin Care & Hair Salon perform a variety of services to keep client's hair looking its best. Beyond the glamorous cuts and styles, the staff combats frizz with Brazilian-blowout smoothing treatments that eliminate bad hair days for weeks at a time. They also adorn buns with intricate braids, pin curls into gravity-defying up-dos, and add volume and wave to follicles for weddings, proms, and photo shoots.
Mane maven and Lime Light director Kelly Hill, who has sculpted the waves of silver-screen sirens like Mila Kunis and Stockard Channing, has culled a staff of skillful stylists tuned in to the latest tress-taming techniques. A Brazilian blowout sheathes sheaves of dull, frizzy hair in a layer of protective protein, infusing it with formaldehyde-free conditioning nutrients. Lay back and relax with a complimentary beverage as the dexterous digits of the experienced follicle-tamer go to work on unruly head threads, leaving them straighter, shinier, and more manageable than a Peter, Paul and Mary cover band. In addition to emerging with a silky, camera-ready coiffure, Groupon customers will also receive a 15% discount on a range of high-end hair products including brands like Midollo Di Bamboo and Nutri Seduction.
Krystal Salon & Day Spa's brightly lit, two-story digs whisk guests into a haven of head-to-toe rejuvenation with keratin treatments and other luxuriant spa services.

In addition to their services, the spa also pampers clients with low-cost valet parking, 13 plasma TVs, and a complimentary cappuccino bar with gourmet coffee, tea, and pastries that offer free legal advice. Clients can also take a break between services to surf the free WiFi.
Belle Visage's co-owners, Tina K and Inez Dunst, first met because of vampires. At the time,Tina was the spa's sole owner, powered by a passion for natural skincare that prompted her to get her aesthetician's license before graduating high school. Inez, meanwhile, was a regular, stopping by often for facials with her actress daughter, Kirsten Dunst. Kirsten needed them to revive her skin after hours in the makeup chair for Interview with a Vampire, which she starred in alongside Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt.
A lot has changed in the more than 10 years since then. Kirsten no longer needs her mom's supervision, and Tina and Inez have become fast friends and business partners. One thing has stayed the same, though, besides vampire's popularity: the spa's star-quality facials. Their most popular one, the Diamond File facial, gently removes the face's dead outer layer of skin, with a file equally effective on sensitive skin and thicker skin types, such as bulletproof skin. As it works, the file helps to break up acne scarring, minimize sunspots, and smooth away fine lines.
The interior at Snip-its Kids Hair Salon & Spa looks like a kids' playhouse, highlighted by colorful, floor-to-ceiling murals. Those surroundings are enough to make kids forget that they're getting a haircut, and that's part of the point. Kids enjoy educational video games during haircuts or try services that they're actually excited about, such as manicures and updos. Trained stylists boast safety measures such as safety straps for toddlers, and parents can sit next to children the entire time.
All of the products at the salon are specifically crafted for kids, and there are lots of other touches that go far beyond those old coloring books. This approach has landed the company in publications that range from the Washington Post to LA Parent. Their unique approach also includes themed beauty parties for kids such as Glamour, Trip-to-Hollywood, and Rock Star & Spa, during which youngsters romp through the space wearing costumes and robes and sipping juice boxes.
