Sprucing up a hairdo before a big date, like getting beaned during the World Series, is a guaranteed way to get to first base. Score a smooch with today’s Groupon: for $50, you get $100 worth of salon services at Alicia's Hair Design in Montclair.
Along with enlivening the head-bristles of women, men, and kids with creative and corrective cuts, the team of stylists at Alicia's Hair Design keep the inside of their own noggins looking chic with continuous educational courses. The salon's junior and senior scissor-wizards remodel ponytails, cowlicks, and frayed cockatoo crests with cuts for women ($60+) and men ($30+) before topping off tufts with optional hair treatment add-ons ($12–$15) such as Keratin Shine and Volume Extend for extra durability and nourishment. Children (ages 1–13) can strut the playground in slow-motion with trims ($15–$45) or fast-motion with buzz cuts ($20–$25). Blow-dry styling ($30+) soothes frazzled fuzz with a flat-iron or hot-roller treatment, and updos ($75+) give prom-bound belles a place to hide emergency hairspray and fire extinguishers for emergency hairspray emergencies.
Alicia's Hair and Design also keeps a regiment of goldilocksmiths at the ready for chemical treatments, lightening hair to a more radiant gradation with crown-placement highlights ($75) before adding contrast with denser lowlights during the Let's Break It Up treatment ($25+). The Elimination Plus service banishes gray hairs and refreshes colored ends ($70); the Funk Me Up dips more adventurous mops in purple, magenta, pink, green, or yellow so that they can easily infiltrate sleeper cells of anime characters ($15+).
