A haircut is like a breakup—it doesn't seem like you need one until someone starts brandishing scissors. Get cut by a professional with today's Groupon: for $40, you get a haircut (up to a $60 value) and deep-conditioning treatment (up to a $30 value) at Bonne Vie Salon in Winter Park (up to a $90 total value).
Bonne Vie Salon's cadre of expert stylists work with Davines and Moroccanoil products to sculpt shaggy hair into stylish hats for human heads. After striding into the New York–style salon's tastefully adorned interior, patrons submit their hair to a deep-conditioning treatment, which expunges concealed dirt and lingering chunks of smog with a thorough, conditioner-backed massaging. Then one of the salon's elite snippers listens attentively to unabridged follicle histories, noting preferences, specific hair challenges, and willingness to unleash a completely new look on friends, family, and pets. Following the consultation, the stylist's expert hands deftly guide swift twin blades on an exciting journey through a heavily forested scalp before releasing customers to flaunt their fresh noggin styles in the fashion-savvy shops and restaurants of Winter Park.
Bonne Vie offers a coupon online for first-time customers, but this Groupon still gets you the best deal.
Bonne Vie Salon
To uphold its promise of delivering a New York–style salon experience, Bonne Vie Salon adopted many of its stylists from the city after they earned certifications from Vidal Sassoon and Frederic Fekkai. The salon's décor also suggests grandeur worthy of the Big Apple: a golden chandelier, sandy-colored columns, and a flood of natural light greet clients as they enter the 1,800-square-foot space.
The setting befits the salon's high-end services, which include trendy Japanese straightening treatments and a hot cutting method that uses scissors heated above 200 degrees to slice through hair without damaging the ends. Italian-made, naturally derived Davines products supplement each service, bathing locks in luxury so that clients don't have to don a top hat full of caviar.
Recently awarded Best of 2013 Winter Park by Orlando Magazine, the salon sits next to an expanse of reserved parking for clients, as well as restaurants, galleries, and museums. Many of Bonne Vie's hairdressers speak two or even three languages, transforming styling sessions into learning experiences for clients who want to brush up on their wookiee snarls.
