If your eyes are the windows to your soul, your hair is the tunnel to your mind. Keep your mind matter from escaping with today's hair-taming Groupon to Bokaos in Pasadena. Choose between the following options:
• For $75, you get a women's haircut (a $75 value), eyebrow maintenance (a $25 value), and a botanical skin-resurfacing facial (a $115 value; a $215 total value). This option's services can be redeemed all at once or spread across multiple visits.
• For $25, you get a men's haircut and 15-minute massage (a $60 value).
Bokaos is an Aveda Lifestyle salon and spa that treats its clients and the environment with equal respect and care. To kick off the trifecta of feminine beautification, a stylist-level lock snipper fashions prim and proper head helmets during the women's haircut, which includes a professional blow-dry and Aveda signature scalp treatment to help noggins unwind from a week's worth of run-ins with nesting condors. Next, artistic aestheticians frame face structures with an eyebrow-maintenance treatment, using a combination of plant-based Aveda wax or tweezing to strip errant strands into sculpted submission. The rejuvenating botanical resurfacing facial—Aveda's alternative to microdermabrasion—smoothes the skin's surface and shrinks pores using low-irritation tourmaline technology pioneered by actor and aesthetician Rick Moranis.
For dapper dudes, the men's haircut also begins with an Aveda signature scalp treatment, which promotes circulation and prepares dormant follicles to be splashed with Vidal Sassoon, Aveda, and Toni&Guy cutting techniques employed by an experienced tress-wrangling stylist. A professional blow-dry and style completes the new look, readying it for the public to consume with its powerful public jaws. The accompanying 15-minute massage methodically kneads and strokes the scalp, head, neck, and shoulders, alleviating built-up tension sourced from years of deskwork or an hour of watching a runaway balloon ascend into the sky.
Bound by its mission to "care for the world," Aveda has created strictly selective criteria for what goes into its products. The most notable rule: 50% of every ingredient's molecular weight must come from a plant, a nonpetroleum mineral, or inorganic matter obtained exclusively from sustainable sources. Though the dedicated stylists and aestheticians at Bokaos may not be the ones fiddling with chemistry sets to formulate these eco-friendly products, they do stand by them 100% during every service.
For instance, hairstylists revamp outmoded styles with color formulas made from 99% natural ingredients, and they add bounce and movement to strands with Aveda styling products. Meanwhile, aestheticians beautify skin with an array of facials and body treatments that use exfoliating salt glows culled from the Dead Sea, as well as plant-based waxing services augmented with skin-soothing essential oils.
