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).
The vintage decor and funky vinyl records on the ceiling and walls of Graffiti Salon reflect the fashion-forward sensibilities of the hairdressing team, which cuts, colors, and styles locks with innovative shapes and eye-catching hues. From the same square styling chairs, stylists extend strands with Hot Hedz hair extensions, banish superfluous frizz and curl with straightening treatments, and enhance tress texture and color with vibrant feather applications. Tucked away from the bustling salon is a private spa room, whose soft music, aquariums, and babbling fountains urge away excess tension during every treatment. Within the calming space, spa staff lavishes bodies with massages, custom facials, and microdermabrasion facials, which slough off dull skin cells to keep living ones from hearing the same stale anecdotes about last year's sunburn.
At Bella Lago Salon & Spa, an experienced staff pampers patrons with a customized treatment to melt away stress like a box of crayons resting on a baby's head. The hour-long, tension-alleviating elemental nature massage utilizes a variety of techniques and soothing aromas, depending on the client's bodily aches. The 60-minute elemental nature facial employs essential oil aromas and customized techniques to moisturize and clarify skin while encouraging healthy cell growth. Additionally, visitors will enjoy memorably relaxing confines doused in soft tones and striking wood accents during their stay.

While a husband’s compliment may turn his wife’s day around, very rarely does it turn into a business. But that’s what happened when Pat Helmandollar’s husband called her a savvy business woman. Since 1967, Helmandollar has used her beauty savvy to work inside salons, own three businesses, teach stylists from all over the world, and helm a team of licensed beauty professionals.
Stylists cut and color hair or add texture, hair extensions, or hair tinsel that decorates strands and gives cats something else to eat. Alternatively, estheticians can remove tension in the face with heated basalt stones and cold marble stones or render a customized chemical peel to get rid of dead skin cells and smoothen skin. Massage therapists balance chakras by blending visualization and touch or add luxury to massages by laying down a literal bed of roses for clients to rest upon in candlelight, rather than the more common industrial torch light used in other salons.
Aside from using their relaxation- and beauty-inducing treatments as a tonic for stress, the salon and day spa also contributes to non-profit causes. Savvy makes donations to the Make A Wish Foundation and rewards clients who give more than $5 worth of monetary or toy donations by entering them into a drawing for one gratis service per month for an entire year.
Abi Goldberg wanted to open her own spa to honor her entrepreneurial father's memory after he passed away. In 2012, Abi used her family's business instincts to rebrand her salon. Chroma Salon Spa Boutique, formerly La Chique, now features industrial chic decor with aqua-colored accents for a more modern, serene setting. Clients can still count on pampering Image Skincare facials and customized cuts, as well as wine and beer to sip or pour out in respect for recently lost locks. Abi also maintains the boutique's stock of handcrafted jewelry and accessories she personally selects from expos in New York and Atlanta.
