Hair is like a houseplant—it needs to be watered and pruned regularly lest it gain sentience and seek revenge on its owner. Avoid hairy vengeance with today's Groupon: for $40, you get $100 worth of salon services at Autumn's Hair Studio in Scottsdale.
The stylists at Autumn's Hair Studio nurture strands and skin with a palatial selection of hair, waxing, and tanning services in a boutique setting. Blanket chilly floors with the fallen fringe of a haircut and the warm gusts of a blow-dry and style ($50+ for women, $25+ for men), or gather strands in an updo ($60+) so they can discreetly gossip about tangles that just broke up. Tresses transform thanks to shade-shifting single-process color ($55+) or partial highlights ($75+), and stubbornly straight hair gives way with a curl-conjuring perm ($60+). A brow or lip waxing ($10–$15) bullies stray hairs from unwelcome areas, and a California Tan sunless spray tan ($35) achieves longed-for photoskinthesis.
After rambling into the salon, clients are hedged in by walls in shades of lilac, leafy green, and muddy brown, a pleasant substitute for pastoral gardens full of devious squirrels and hardened rabbit felons. Although costs are not included with today’s deal, customers can navigate the boutique, unearthing styling salves from Redken and L'Oreal, and apparel, jewelry, and sunglasses.
