Although birds are a nonjudgmental bunch of aviators, they enjoy a good view when they fly above parks and walkways gazing at the scalps of flightless humans. Keep lofty audiences entertained with today's Groupon: for $50, you get $100 worth of services at any of Barnette's Salon's three locations in Jackson and Ridgeland. This deal applies to services only, and does not include products.
Named 2010's Best Salon by Mississippi magazine and an Elle magazine pick for Best Hair Salons in 2010, Barnette’s snips and sculpts head-noodles with utmost precision. Skilled scissor wielders tame wild tresses into well-mannered coifs with a bevy of classic and contemporary techniques for women ($35+) and men ($20+). Edit Mother Nature's palette selection with a variety of coloring services ($65+), or craft an elegant nest for a tiara or baby sparrow with an updo ($45+).

Although Barnette's Salon located on Highland Colony shares space with Aqua The Day Spa, today's Groupon is good only for services at Barnette's.
Elle magazine named Barnette’s Salon one of its Best Hair Salons in 2010.
The highly trained stylists at Barnette’s Salon are accustomed to hearing compliments from satisfied clients, but in the past few years they've also had to get used to reading praise in print. Along with being named a "Top 100 Salon 2011" by Elle Magazine and "Reader's Choice for Best Salon 2012" by Mississippi Magazine, the salon––which boasts three locations––has also earned the title of "Best Beauty Shop of Jackson 2012" from the Jackson Free Press](http://www.jacksonfreepress.com/news/2012/jan/25/best-of-jackson-2012-urban-living/), who proclaimed, "the staff is not only friendly and professional, but also immensely talented, consisting of some of the top stylists in town."
Those top stylists owe much of their success to the salon's training program, which divvies the staff into five levels, according to experience, and inducts new stylists only after they have endured at least one year of extensive training and learned to identify each hair color by its smell. Specialists if precision cuts and custom color, the team reaches for products from Aveda, Bumble and Bumble, MoroccanOil, and CareTrico, and add instant length and volume using 100% human hair extensions by Great Lengths. For tresses in need of a new texture, they can also calm unruly curls with Keratin smoothing treatments or set strands with permanent waves to help cut down on time spent dealing with hot curling irons or hot rollers.
