Though the 18th century's towering, powdered updos are now passé, hair itself remains in style. Keep current with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of hair and facial-waxing services at As You Like It Hair Salon.
Cultivating neck-up styles in the heart of Mount Adams, As You Like It Hair Salon's experienced head groomers turn drab 'dos into well-manicured manes and strip visages of surplus strands. Waxings keep top lips fuzz-free ($15) or banish deviant chin and cheek whiskers ($22) that have migrated from nearby kittens. Stylists sculpt tresses into trendy formations during women's cuts and finishes ($42), or snip men's scalp coverings into debonair form ($28). An oversize, brightly painted duck that waddled in from the playgrounds of yore serves as a kid-friendly throne for tykes getting trimmed ($15), and sardonic teens can secretly admire his feathers from a leather chair during their clip sessions ($20).
Guests enter beneath striped awnings into As You Like It's welcoming ambiance. Taupe walls offset with crisp white trim and a classic black-and-white checkered floor spread out beneath the greenery of hanging plants waiting to have their leaves permed.
