If hair could talk, it would have a mouth, transforming stylish head wraps into cruel mufflers and skinny headbands into orthodontia. Give hair a voice sans the expensive dental upkeep with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of hair services at Blü a Salon.
Blü is armed with a staff of inspired stylists composed of four parts magic and two parts scissors. Following a series of follicle services, once-shapeless tufts of hair transform into graceful silhouettes that make the head a thrilling focal point for friends and admiring seagulls. Hair foundations are reshaped through styling haircuts ($35+ for women; $25+ for men) and a smorgasbord of complementary treatments await to make them the envy of every passing hat. Sleekify clean hair with a cellophane treatment ($35 add-on; $65 à la carte), adjust volume with a blow-out ($40), or keep projectile acorns from getting stuck in a ’do with a flattening treatment ($30 add-on; $60 à la carte). Prices vary depending on stylist or length, density, and condition of hair, but Blü’s mane mavens are happy to offer a consultation to determine cost before going forward with services.
Cream-colored walls bedecked with vivid local artwork create a welcoming community vibe at Blü, keeping eyes from glazing over with a thick, sugary coating of bliss during each shampoo and style. An arsenal of Bumble and bumble products stock the salon shelves, eagerly awaiting adoption by customers looking to carry over their new look into everyday life.
