Unlike open-heart surgery or removing a squirrel taped to the upper back, a haircut is rarely a successful do-it-yourself project. Leave locks to the professionals with today’s Groupon: for $40, you get a haircut and a deep-conditioning treatment at The Beauty Room (an $85 value).
The Beauty Room’s savvy stylist Janna Langeberg attends monthly training classes to keep her already-extensive hair-spiffing skill set firmly in the future, where it waits patiently for the space-time continuum to catch up. Unruly locks begin beautification journeys with a wash as impurities such as dirt, oils, and secret desires to become a bowl cut get rinsed away. Next, the deep-conditioning treatment swaddles sun-dried and damaged locks in an opulent coating of Bumble and bumble or Davines products. Head tentacles laze beneath a dryer for up to 20 minutes as the glaze sets, adds moisture, and—much like a scalp-based divorce lawyer—works to cleanly separate split ends. Janna then sculpts strands into each client's desired look and blow-dries for a shiny, polished finish.
The Beauty Room’s proprietor, Mi Shaun Schmidt Schwab, maintains an open, airy salon filled with warm oranges and pinks. Crystal chandeliers, fresh flowers, and luxurious furniture create a warm, inviting, and glamorous atmosphere, allowing visitors to experience the opulent comfort of a hug from Scrooge McDuck.
