The earliest salons were informal gatherings where B-list philosophers gibbered away so they couldn't hear themselves dying of plague. Get an earful of the modern salon’s soothing hair-dryer purrs and scissor chop-chops instead with today's Groupon at Aqua Salon Spa on Creedmoor Road. Choose between the following two options:
- For $25, you get a women's haircut and an 8.5-ounce bottle of Aveda Shampure shampoo (a $50.50 total value).
- For $15, you get a men's haircut and an 8.5-ounce bottle of Aveda rosemary mint shampoo (a $33.50 total value).
Aqua is an Aveda concept salon with stylists who gussy up outmoded strands while maintaining Mother Nature's hairline by using eco-friendly hair products. Ladies in need of a hairdo overhaul can relax in cushy salon chairs as scissor-brandishing stylists sculpt elegant forehead drapery ($40).
A men's haircut employs tress-taming techniques to domesticate wild man manes so they don't bark at parked cars ($23). When coif coddling is completed, women will bring home a bottle of Shampure shampoo, which is comprised of 25 plant and flower essences, and men are sent off with a bottle of fragrant rosemary mint shampoo that protects follicles from environmental damage and encroaching defensive linemen.
