A great haircut can inspire even the most listless and despondent of scalps, much like a papier-mâché crown of Chicken Soup for the Soul essays. Give your head a pick-me-up with today’s Groupon: for $40, you get a hairstyling package at Art + Science Salons (an $80 total value). This Groupon is valid at all three of the salon's locations in Chicago and Evanston. The package includes:
- One consultation, haircut, blow-dry, and style (a $55 value).
- One Orofluido conditioning treatment (a $25 value).
A quartet of seasoned hairstylists working in London and New York convened in Chicago more than 20 years ago to open Art + Science Salons in the cutting-edge tradition of European styling. One-hour appointments begin as one of the salon's experienced hair tamers consults with each client take note of his or her envisioned coif and number of heads. Next, an Orofluido conditioning treatment swaddles strands in an opulent glaze of argan, linseed, and cyperus oil that leaves them enriched, silky, and more manageable. Once they rinse and clip manes into desired designs, stylists blow-dry hair to imbue tresses with more polish than a beauty queen dipped in chrome, making sure to pass on their noggin-fashioning know-how to clients for easy home replication. Today's deal also includes a $10 voucher good toward any colorist for a color service.
Dedicated to fashioning a modern follicular haven free of pretension but full of professionalism, all of Art + Science's friendly stylists and colorists undergo an intensive apprenticeship program before being allowed to practice their strand sorcery on their own clients or lobby ferns. Heads remain healthy thanks to organic products from MOP, Revlonissimo, Abba, d:fi, and American Crew, and Groupon holders can also take advantage of a 20% discount on any take-home items except Bumble & bumble products.
Art + Science Salon
After gaining success at international salons, fashion shows, and photo shoots, stylists Laurence Hegarty, David Raccuglia, Beth Lloyd, and Sally Raccuglia joined forces to establish the first Art + Science Salon in 1989. Now, more than two decades later, the quartet of hairstylists has cemented their position in the beauty world by opening three locations across Chicago and creating a philosophy to which each salon holds true: provide world-class yet wearable, haircuts.
To meet this goal, each salon is staffed with expert stylists and colorists who must complete the salon's rigorous apprenticeship program, which is based on the European system of blending art with science to create modern, wearable styles. The specialists transform hair with help from products from Mensdept., Bumble and Bumble, American Crew, and Shu Uemera. They also make sure clients go home knowing how to maintain and recreate their dos. To welcome more gentlemen into the salon, Art + Science has unveiled The Barbershop at Art + Science, which offers hot towels, straight-razor shaves, and stylish cuts.
