Like tree foliage, human foliage is multihued, needs regular pruning, and falls off every winter. Celebrate the sprouting of springtime strands with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get a haircut and style and a choice of a color, relaxer, or perm at Academy of Beauty (up to a $51 value). This deal is valid at both Academy of Beauty locations in St. Ann and Cottleville.
As a Pivot Point member school, the Academy of Beauty has been offering top-notch cosmetology training for aspiring mane tamers and skin smoothers for more than 25 years. At the academy salon, noodle nests are nurtured by student stylists working under the watchful eyes of licensed educators and Adonia, the Greek goddess of Brazilian blowouts. Each haircut begins with a relaxing scalp massage to lull scared strands out of hiding before shampooing, snipping, and shaping them to the height of follicular fashion. Brighten dull dreads with all-over color (a $30+ value), lift lazy locks with a perm (a $35+ value), or loosen tress tension brought on by years of supporting your many fruit hats with a relaxer (a $45+ value).
The student-salons provide their coif caressing in an academic, no-frills environment, keeping the focus on education and service instead of salon shtick and singing fish art. Salon services are offered Wednesday through Saturday, and upgrades are available to Groupon holders for an additional fee.
