In the Old West, cowboys rode into town to have a glass of whiskey at the town saloon, to heckle the thieves in the stockades, and to exfoliate their rugged mugs with the sheriff’s spurs. Saddle up for modern shaping up with today’s Groupon to 53 Karat in Gatineau. Choose between the following options:
- For $21, you get a haircut, wash, and style with an Academy stylist (a $42 value).

53 Karat’s team of adroit Academy stylists revive frazzled strands with beautifying salon services performed with quality products from brands such as Joico, ISO, and Redken. A purifying shampooing service expunges dirt and popped bubble gum residue, revealing a fully cleansed canvas for forthcoming hewing. Skilled stylists artfully snip away straggly ends as they sculpt mops into chic, face-flattering shapes. Once scissors have retreated from craniums, a style service concludes the treatment to leave salon-goers looking as polished and elegant as a pool cue draped in a ball gown. Languid locks can undergo vibrant hue upgrades with the application of a full head of highlights, and a colour retouching treatment quashes the uprisings of roots intent on defying previously applied pigments.
After years of working together in the salons of others, longtime friends and coworkers Sonia Lefebvre and Eve Parr joined forces to realize their dreams of opening their own business, working tirelessly to build 53 Karat from the ground up. Since opening 53 Karat in January of 2009, Sonia and Eve—backed by the talents and passion of their close-knit team of massage therapists, stylists, and aestheticians—have steadfastly tackled the challenges and revelled in the joys of their work, their infectious excitement evident to all those who step through their doors. Bustling about their elegant styling stations forged from unfinished wood, coiffeurs bedizen hair with flattering highlights, and muscle manipulators in wood-floored private treatment rooms revive bodies weary from catapulting to work with tension-erasing massages. Floor-to-ceiling windows flood the spacious salon and spa with natural light, and the chic warehouse-like space retains a welcoming warmth thanks to rich red walls and cheery plants.
