Colorlocks' expert hair strengtheners and shaders build body in flat manes with the Awapuhi hair treatment, named Best Wave Enhancer in Allure magazine's 2010 Best of Beauty awards. A stylist will de-kink coifs, turning frizzy nests into waves silky and smooth enough to inspire a jealous slam ballad by Michael Bolton. Paul Mitchell's Awapuhi products wrangle wild ginger to daintily deck strands with greater volume and well-defined waves. Though not included in this Groupon, Awapuhi shampoos and rinses are available for at-home use, so manes can retain their beachy billows without sleeping in conch-shell curlers.
The modern decor inside Head Games Salon mirrors the contemporary looks that clients receive while under the deft care of the salon's professional stylists. During salon treatments ranging from basic trims to full-color treatments, strands are smothered with Eufora products, an aloe-based addition to the salon's beautifying arsenal. The Eufora line shows a commitment to both Head Games's clients and the environment, since the styling products strengthen hair with a blend of botanical extracts instead of wigs carved from a petrified forest.
The beauticians at Hello Gorgeous wield makeup, nail polish, and other pampering paraphernalia to transform girls into glamorous stars. A manicure dolls up little digits with a soak, file, and polish before a pedicure treats little piggies on their way to market with the respect and vibrant nail art they deserve. Finally, a staff member beautifies young faces with a variety of makeup shades and colors, outfitting them with rock-star attitude, runway-model swagger, or a constitutional monarch’s demure sense of propriety. For more examples of gussied up glitz within Hello Gorgeous’ pink walls, guests can check out its photo gallery.
Inside this airy salon—bedecked with wooden crates and Parisian prints—stylists bolster each client's personal style with cuts, coloring, and hair treatments. Numerous coloring techniques, including base breaks and highlights, camouflage grey strands and provide a more youthful sheen to hairdos. Keratin and Japanese relaxer treatments help discipline the hair by keeping each lock as straight as a schoolmarm's ruler. The team also accentuates features with haircuts, and readies brides-to-be with sweeping up-dos and airbrush makeup.
