Before highlights, hair could only display its individuality by wearing thrift-store clothes or listening to obscure music on vinyl. Encourage your locks to stand out in a crowd with today's Groupon: for $22, you get a foil-weaving highlight treatment (a $47 value) at Colorific Hair Color Salon, which has locations in Bolingbrook, Joliet, Normal, Orland Park, Plainfield, and Wheaton.
Colorific uses high-quality products and expert colorists to turn drab, hue-deficient hairs into radiant works of follicular art. Each pigment-procuring process begins with a consultation from a director colorist, who uses a cauldron of knowledge to help conjure an ideal coloring based on clients' unique hair types, facial features, and mood-ring results. A color technician then applies a customized formula during the 90-minute foil-weaving session and immortalizes each color equation on a personal client card, making the journey to highlight-enhanced locks easy for future visits. Freshly tinted tresses can voyage to complimentary self-styling stations—where their owners can sculpt them into ponytails, pigtails, or puppy-dog tales—or to the trained hands of stylists (for an additional cost).
Unlike excitable college freshmen, Colorific’s staff doesn’t highlight everything. If a stylist decides that hair is too damaged to color, this Groupon can be used for products, another service, or a combination of services, such as haircuts, healing and conditioning treatments, or makeup applications.
Colorific Hair Color Salon
The gurus at Colorific Hair Color Salon believe that in order to successfully transform looks, you need a plan. Before any strands shift hues, a director colorist meets with new clients to craft an attack strategy based on their hair type, facial features, and desire to camouflage themselves in a field of wheat. A dedicated technician then custom blends a mix of Schwarzkopf color products, deftly painting and using foils to create the desired look.
Although their products are high quality and their services are indulgent, Colorific’s crew keeps costs low. To do this, they let patrons blow-dry and finish their own look at a self-styling station. But for those seeking a full-service salon day, they also offer precision cuts, styling lessons, and makeup applications using the natural, preservative-free bareMinerals line by Bare Escentuals.
