As a practitioner of the Aveda arts, Kriza Aveda Salon Spa stocks its shelves, cosmetic counters, and salon stations with natural, botanical serums and salves. To pamper clients, the staff peppers each service with luxurious flair—stylists treat guests to a head, neck, shoulder, and hand massage with every haircut, before touching up makeup for ladies. Between appointments, they’ll even trim up bangs to keep cuts stylish or keep head hair from weaving itself into eyelashes. In addition to applying makeup for brides or for special occasions, makeup artists also consult with clients to teach them how to enhance their features and pick the shades that suit their particular skin tone during lessons. Plant-based facials leave skin radiant, diminish wrinkles, or address acne. In every location, the decor mirrors the commitment to naturalism with a light, airy feel, characterized by mostly white walls and plenty of mirrors and glass.
Skilled stylist Toi Pinell, whose passion for arranging locks started when she was still playing with dolls, draws inspiration from the latest trends as she tames manes of all types with hair services at Hair Imagery. Pinell snips locks into face-framing shapes, brightens hair with highlights and strings of Christmas lights, and enhances heads with quick bond and basic sew-in weaves. Her deft fingers leave neatly ordered cornrows and chignons in their wake, while thermal straightening keeps hair obediently smooth. Pinell also makes house calls.
The stylists at Luxe Parlour & Blowdry Bar make sure their clients look their best before they leave the salon by trimming their split ends, adding color, or grooming fingers and toes. Salon services tend to manes with blow-drys and styling, keratin smoothing treatments, and hair extensions that add length and fullness to hair without having to resort to scalp fertilizer. Facial waxing removes stray hairs covering up beautiful features and nail services keep nails healthy on both adult and child hands.
Amid a posh atmosphere featuring cushy leather chairs, patrons can enjoy an old-fashioned straight-razor shave that meticulously molds face shrubs into sleek and dapper facades. Utilizing swift yet careful strokes, Felix Diaz uses his steady-handed prowess to meticulously shed hair from faces. A gentle blade and all-natural products are used to soothe faces and provide men with a look as fresh as the day they materialized in a cornfield. Hot lather shaving cream is applied with a soft, 100% badger-hair brush that provides a much more consistent lather than a witch’s broom. Additionally, six steam towels infused with eucalyptus oil and skincare products are applied throughout the shave, ensuring a memorably skin-softening experience.
Scraggly manes make something of themselves with the help of Lucy's Hair Salon's crack team of locks smiths. Within a clean, modern cocoon formed of bright buttercream walls and shiny wood fixtures, ladies can entrust their tresses to the salon's shrewd stylists, who reward believing brain-holders with striking new scalp bouquets. Gentlemen can mull a mullet or save the endangered faux hawk during their deshagging sessions. A subsequent Moroccanoil treatment will strengthen and condition hair so it can resist temptation to midnight snack on earlobes. Groupon customers can also receive 10% off any additional salon services if performed on the same day.
At Bree Salon, a talented group of steady-handed stylists meticulously trims unruly noodle-nests into sculpted coiffures using top-notch beautification services. A woman’s haircut ($65+) or men’s haircut ($35+) adds a dash of glance-baiting pizzazz to scalp farms while carefully clipping away baseball-sized wads of gum.

Applying your Groupon to more involved treatments, such as full highlights ($120+) or a Brazilian blowout ($200–$300), will give you more time to soak up Bree Salon's relaxing atmosphere, which boasts a striking décor of rustic dark wood furnishings and fetching chandeliers that glitter with diamonds compressed from Matthew McConaughey’s golden locks.
