Before modern hair treatments, frizzy hair could only be smoothed by pressing it with an iron or by running it through the fingers of a jazz pianist. Achieve a noteworthy ‘do with today’s Groupon: for $45, you get a hairstyle package valid with stylist Michelle at Bella Rio Salon (a $100 total value). The package includes the following:
- Haircut (a $35 value)
- Partial highlights (a $65 value)
Michelle draws on her degree from the Douglas J Aveda Institute of East Lansing to renovate hairdos in the trendy Bella Rio Salon. After consulting with clients and hiring a medium to prepare split ends for the afterlife, the hair caretaker cuts and styles cranial decorations into eye-catching new arrangements. Next, highlights repaint head threads, enabling them to garner compliments from passersby and scare away natural predators. The historic building opens into a loft-like space, where exposed brick and pipes, modish light fixtures, and bare floors transport clients back to the heyday of posh industrial warehouses, when steam-powered robots cut hair for $5 a day.
Michelle at Bella Rio Salon
Bella Rio Salon's Michelle puts her Aveda Institute studies to use when she cuts and styles hair and performs Brazilian blow outs. But she didn't discard her emphasis on profession development after graduating from Aveda. Michelle still attends classes through Wella and Rusk Professional, and Brazilian Blowout Original & Zero. This training comes to life when she cuts hair and styles it, colors tresses, adorns clients with feather extensions, and leads personal styling classes. Her stomping grounds is the upscale Bella Rio Salon, a multi-layered, exposed-brick hair haven full of light fixtures that glow the way stars glow—which means the staff has to show up 30 million years early to turn the lights on every day.
