Like puppies, heads of hair need to be pampered regularly, or they’ll leave a mess on the couch and act up every time you roll down the car windows. Calm unruly coiffures with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get a wash, a haircut, and a blow-dry at About Faces Hair Salon and Spa (up to a $60 value).
At About Faces Hair Salon and Spa, experienced coiffeurs clip, curl, and feather misbehaving mops into obedient 'dos. Hair wranglers begin the roughly 60-minute process with a noggin-sudsing wash to purge dirt, oil, and innocuous seedlings that may have taken root. After snipping scalp-spaghetti into the perfect style, stylists blow-dry from crown to tip and style using a multifarious array of professional products, including Pureology, Redken, Goldwell, Tigi, and Moroccan Oil. About Faces angles rows of artfully off-set vanities with oversize round mirrors to catch every viewpoint of a modish crop or a geodesic molded dome. New clients will also receive a welcome package with coupons for future services to help them to bond with their new tangle-tamers.
About Faces Salon & Spa
Depending on their beauty goals, the clients of About Faces Salon & Spa report to one of several aesthetic divisions. Owner Denise Walden Cooper, for example, acts as the resident skincare expert. With her aesthetics team behind her, she leads the fight against blemishes and signs of aging with products from Dermalogica and Jane Iredale. She also takes advantage of newer technologies, such as a facial add-on that uses stem cells from plants, striving to increase collagen production and allow flowers placed behind your ear to root there permanently.
Across the space, whose beige walls are accented by oversize mirrors, wooden salon stations, and shelving stocked with colorful products for sale, hairstylists craft both edgy and simple 'dos. Their Redken, Goldwell, and Pureology formulas nourish and color locks, and their complex updos prep clients for big events. Mani-pedis, waxing services, body treatments, and massages round out the salon's menu, which readily accommodates large groups and wedding parties.
