A blown kiss often gets misdirected in the wind, inadvertently creating lovelorn alley cats and hopelessly romantic mailboxes. Take control of the signals you send with today's Groupon: for $199, you get $550 toward hair extensions from HairLoom at Allure Salon in Coconut Grove. A typical hair-extension service—extensions, the weaving process, and a cut and style—typically costs $850–$1,000.
Carlos Collazo lengthens manes with 100%-human-hair extensions made by Cinderella, Hotheads, and Silk Cap. At each extension appointment, Collazo helps guests to select straight, wavy, or curly strand expanders that complement their locks' texture and color. Visitors may choose from a 72-color palette, accenting their mops with auburns, golds, and ebonies richer than a movie star in diamond chain mail. Extensions unfurl to 16, 18, or 20 inches ($125–$165/package, depending on length); the number of fibers needed varies from head to head. Thanks to their tangle-free nature, the silky additions are easy to brush and style, unlike a sentient My Little Pony.
Known for his meticulous approach to tress weaving, Collazo has earned a reputation as an international educator for Cinderella extensions and a stylist for celebrities such as Stella Adler. Collazo treats each extension as carefully as an exploding rattlesnake, drawing from 15 years of hair-taming experience as he releases it into the wild.

Survivors of Bravo TV’s salon makeover show Tabatha’s Salon Takeover, Pablo Hernandez’s team of savvy stylists prunes the entire body with haircuts and coloring, nail care, and waxing services. Keratin treatments and Japanese thermal straightening treatments put troublemaking locks in line, whereas perms bend them into undulating cascades. Artists can also apply makeup for special events, such as weddings or grand openings of neighborhood grocers. Additionally, the salon caters to masculine bristles with men’s haircuts and beard trims or shaves.
